COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Appalachian Brewing Company, Gettysburg is proud to release this small batch Dunkelweizen. This wheat beer is brewed with caramel malt resulting in a darker beer with residual malt sweetness that balances the banana and clove flavors produced by our Hefeweizen yeast. Please stop in to any of our locations to try a pint before it is sold out!

Overall a decent beer that reminds me more of an Amber than a Wheat. I had a growler filled at the Gettysburg location when I opened it later that night it seemed a little flat and felt thin on my palate but the flavors were interesting and it was still enjoyable.

Draft at Collegeville. Ruddy muddy brown with off-khaki head. Nose was malty, brown sugar, clove, banana. Tasted rich, complex, with the banana, nut, clove, citrus, and hops of weiss matched by a brown sugary malt and nuts of a dunkle. Pretty good.

Murky brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, clove, nuts, roasted malts, and light smoke. Taste of much of the same, with some bread, vanilla, and a semi-sweet finish.

Appears like cloudy iced tea with a thin light-tan film. looks flat. Smells of clove, light spice and citrus, slightly tart and funky even. Flavor is clove with spice bread, minus the breadiness from the malt. subtle banana, astringent grain flavor and light bodied, reminiscent of lemonade. Also a moderate blend of bitterness and roast that stimulates the back ans sides of the palate. The beer seems like a fresh homebrew, full of flaws and some interesting character, not to mention it’s undercarbonated. Needs improvement. Also, I don’t know why the commercial description refers to "our" hefeweizen yeast. They just use white labs varieties.

On tap @ Camp Hill. Pours a cloudy, dark brown color with a large, tan head. Great aroma, bready, cloves, bananas. Medium body, very malty but not too sweet. Slick banana finish. A good attempt at the style.
