Notes / Commercial Description:
Dunkel Weizen is the dark version of the regular golden-yellow Weissbier or Weizenbier (more commonly called Hefeweizen in North America), the spritzy, creamy Bavarian wheat beer with pronounced clove, vanilla, banana, apple, bubblegum, and sometimes nutmeg flavors.

Dunkel means dark in German (as opposed to weiss, which means white) and Weizen means wheat. Like a Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen is made from a mixed mash of wheat and barley malts, but unlike a Weissbier, it also contains a large array of lightly to thoroughly caramelized or roasted malts that give it both its color and its complexity. A Dunkelweizen, therefore, has all the characteristic and differentiated flavors of a sophisticated wheat ale, overlaid with chocolatey to roasted flavors. Dunkelweizen is a very complex beer style with endless variations on the same theme.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy light brown w/ a thin and unimpressive head. Light banana and chocolate in aroma. Hop bitterness is above the norm for style. Thinly bodied. Mild clove flavor and musty yeast flavors dominate. Finishes w/ mellow Munich malt flavors. Weak overall for a dunkel weizen.
