This is a dark version of the weizen beer style. The grist contains a large portion of wheat, which lends a distinctive note to the malt body and aroma. This style is traditionally un-filtered and can have significant haze and cloudiness. Our Dunkle Weizen is brewed with a traditional Bavarian weizen yeast, which gives it a very pronounced clove and spice character, as well as a fruity aroma.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Light nose, just a bit of over-ripe bananas and light yeastiness. The flavor leads with a little caramel and banana, then transitions toward a lightly yeasty sweet finish. Lighter bodied with a soft gentle mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation. Decent stuff.

Nice doppel that didn't have the breast or banana taste. Just sweet with a good mouthfeel and finish on the palate.

Wife ordered this draft at the brewpub, served in a pint glass. Cloudy orangy-copper color with off-white head. Aroma notes of bread, Belgian yeast (banana, clove, bubblegum), citrus and light spices. Taste adds more malt sweetness, caramel and yeasty fruitiness. Light body, moderate-low carbonation, sticky with light bitter sweet finish. Nice enough local dunkel.

Medium/light body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
