Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our dark wheat beer is impressive with its creamy white foam. A fruity-fresh sweetness and hints of mature bananas harmonise with delicious flavours of roasted malt, sparkling and full-bodied with a light caramel taste on the first sip. An excellent accompaniment from hearty meals and game to chocolate and nut desserts. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into a Duvel snifter.

a: Translucent deep amber with an inch and a half tall off-whuite head which dissipated slowly to heavy surface foam and considerable lacing.

s: Peaches.

t: Ripe dark fruit, rather Belgian in flavor. Or perhaps many Belgians are like Bavarian Heffeweiss Dunkels.

m: Medium with great body.

o: A very tasty and refreshing brew. Just seems to blur any lines between Belgian and Bavarian. More fruity than I expected a German Weissbeir Dunkel to be.

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint glass.

Pours light to dark brown, 1/2 inch bubbly fizzy white foam. Fruity esthers, loads of banana and clove. Classic german. Hefe nose with an edge. Light wheaty flavor. Smooth. Very fresh. Quite refreshing.
