American Dark Wheat Ale

An Americanized version of a Dunkel Weizen, these beers can range within the brown to garnet range. Often cloudy with long-lasting heads. Light to medium body with high level of carbonation. Hop characters will be low to high with some fruitiness from ale fermentation, though most examples use of a fairly neutral ale yeast, resulting in a clean fermentation with little to no diacetyl. Flavors of caramel and toasted malts might be present.

German Weizen flavors and aromas of banana esters and clove-like phenols will not be found.

Average alcohol by volume (abv) range: 4.0-7.0%   [ ? ]
