As a huge fan of both the dunkelweiss style and walnuts I was excited to find a bottle of this at Capone's in Norristown. It was worth every penny.

Appearance: Near black, unfiltered with the expected dunkelweiss head.

Smell: Aroma of roasted walnuts, caramel and expresso.

Taste: Black walnuts, caramel, subtle fuit sweetness and coffee.

As a lover of the dunkelweiss style, I routinely keep a keg of Franziskaner dunkel in my beer cooler and many bottles of Ayinger Ur-weisse in my fridge. This is the first American craft version of dunkelweiss which rivals the Bavarian originals and even surpasses them in quality. A must try if you can find it and like the style. If only BWD was more readily available.

on tap at bainbridge barrel house

Deep almost cola brown colored pour, thin white head and mild retention. Spotty lacing streaks the glass while drinking.

Toasted walnuts, caramel sweetness and toasted grains in the nose. Hints of sweetness and warmth with a continuing notion of chestnuts on an open fire.

Extremely nutty up front, toasted, roasted and broasted hints. Meaty walnuts, bread crust and caramel. Fuller backbone, decently sweet and slightly warm in the finish.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, creamy and smooth on the tongue. How do you effectively prevent boring people with a traditional style - evidently you walnut the crap out of it. I was into this but I could see some not enjoying it quite as much.

Dark, almost cola like brown with haze, moderate tan tinted head. Scent brings lots of caramel with some notes of roasted nuts and grain, some dark fruit also present. Scent is quite bold with sweet malt the star and an adequate amount of roast, some earthy and grassy hops - strengthens at the end of the sip. Medium bodied, light in carbonation. Another decent beer from Perennial.
