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.

Poured into a Weiss Beer glass which developed a tan frothy head. Head was full and lasting with little lacing. Aroma was hoppy, almost grainy with a hint of sweetness and malt, Appearance was a light brown / straw color with a cloudy hue. Taste was clean and hoppy with hints of citrus and grain and slight caramel. Tasted more like a Weiss than a dark Weiss. Aftertaste was clean and dry with a light dry mouthfeel.
