Brewed by:
Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan

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.

Single bottle served cold in Hefe style glass beer challis

A) Cloudy & bright, mahogany colored fizzy mixture. Soft white head settles quickly. Looks terrific...

S) Classic hefeweissen - banana, sweet citrus fruit, clove. Slightly musky as the beer opens

T) Delicious. Banana bread, honey, very mild pepper, caramel, tart.

M) Well balanced with adequate fine carbonation, sticky sweet, mild hops and smooth.

O) Not only an excellent example of this classic style, easily found here in Chicago and reasonably priced.
