Notes/Commercial Description:
As the name suggests this is a Dark Wheat Beer. Traditionally a German “Wheat Ale” this light bodied, crisp flavored cold Ale has become one of Vancouver Islands favorite brews. This beer has a refreshing graininess in the flavor profile with the addition of 35% White Wheat.

Poured from a tall 568 mL can into a weizen glass. This beer appears to now be called Steam Punk Dunkel.

Appearance: rich amber-brown hue with a little haze and a pretty strong effervescence (though this is hard to discern through the darkness). Head is two fingers of frothy light-tan foam. I find it quite attractive!

Smell: quite malty with toast, biscuit and chocolate. Not a whole lot in the way of wheat or classic weizen esters, but the chocolate is nice.

Taste: a bit milder than the aroma. Toasty and chocolatey but without so much biscuit (thankfully); this is kind of like an amber porter, in that it doesn't have a lot of weizen character. Still, it's not at all a bad beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess. Appropriate enough for the style.

Overall: this is a relatively quaffable beer; I quite like the chocolate, although I would prefer some more estery weizen yeast character.

i must say that this beer suffers from a burnt flavour that really cuts down on the drinkability. The colour and smell is right but i felt a lack of balance and finish. A lot of longwood beers suffer from an off balance that kinda ruined the desire for another pint

I sampled this at the brewpub in a generous 6 oz glass. There's no Pacific Northwest twist... this is a Dunkel Weizen, through and through!

A: Amber-brown, off-white head, awesome lace.

S: Bready, caramel malt with a little nut.

T: Some roasted malty bitterness, bready, chewy malt.

M: Moderate body, moderate carbonation.

D: Better than average.
