We announce the opening of our wheat beer season with a classic Bavarian styled dark wheat beer, or Dunkelweizen (noonn-kel vite-sen). This is the first in a series of our wheat beer recipes for the hot summer months using the traditional Bavarian wheat beer yeast. This darker style wheat beer is served unfiltered showing a pale brown color typical of a dunkel. A special type of Bavarian yeast yields the signature close, banana, and spice qualities that define a Bavarian style wheat beer. All of those aromas and flavors are a direct result of the yeast. The name DPAC Dunkel celebrates the Durham Performing Arts Center located 3 blocks south of BCBB. The DPAC opened on November 30, 2008, with B.B. King to a sellout crowd and is now rated one of the top performance halls in the US at No. 4! Hops Used: Hallertauer

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Draft at brewery. Murky brown color, very cloudy, and only a hint of head. Nose of bananas and some rustic barnyard notes. Flavors are similar in a lot of ways to a hefeweizen but with more malty backbone. Bananas, citrus, a touch of caramel. It didn’t look too inviting, but it was quite tasty.
