BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hofbräuhaus Chicago

Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Combining refreshing notes of wheat beer and the richness of dark beer, Hefe Weizen Dunkel creates a wonderful and unique flavour. This one-of-a-kind beer is fermented similarly to light beer and stored in kegs for about one week, but in a way as unique as its flavour: upside down! Just before tapping time the yeast redistributes by turning the keg upright.

This brew, offering 5,1% alcohol by volume, is characterised by a variety of special malts and a pleasing taste of coffee and cocoa.

Served in a maßkrug at Hofbräuhaus Rosemont.

Though listed as simply "Hefe Weizen Dunkel" on the website, it was called "Winter Weizen" on the menu, hence how I have listed it here. It pours a cloudy sienna-cored gold topped by two fingers of slightly off-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, banana, clove, light cocoa powder, orange zest, light coriander, light black pepper, and a touch of honey. The taste brings in more of the same, only more powerful and with the spices really shining through. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a nearly creamy feel. Overall, a damn fine dunkelweizen, a fine accompaniment to my tasty sauerbraten dish.
