BEER INFO

Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan
Germany
weihenstephaner.de

Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Served in a weizen glass

A - This beer is a murky tea color with some burnt orange highlights. I got several inches of beige head.

S - I smell some banana immediately. I also get some caramel and some molasses.

T - The taste is kind of like a molasses cookie, but not as sweet. There is also some banana in the finish.

M - Medium with plenty of carbonation.

O - I had this on tap and absolutely loved it. I am not as impressed with the bottled version. It might be an old bottle. That being said I would not hesitate to have this beer on tap again.
