Dunkelweizen translates from German to mean dark wheat.

Our Dunkelweizen adheres to all of the traditions of the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516) and is naturally carbonated.

Type: Draft
Glass: .5L+ glass (really like 21.5 oz.)
From: Gordon Biersch in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $6.50
Purchased: March 1, 2015
Consumed: March 1, 2015
Misc.: N/A

Poured a caramel, auburn, murky color with four fingers of rocky, khaki cream head. Logs of good-looking bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good foamy lacing. Great retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled cloves, banana, Circus Peanuts, caramel, apple, green grape, light booziness and honey. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted cloves, caramel, unknown German spices, banana, sour green apple, somewhat saisonish, green grape and honey. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. (Feel - 3.75)

This may be my top Gordon Biersch beer I’ve tried, even though I think I overrated this one a tad. (Overall - 3.75)

From notes on 4/7/14

On tap at RDU. Don’t know if I’ve had this style before. Strong sweet taste. Some banana taste. Body is a beautiful cloudy amber. Love the look.
