Per German Purity Law, at least 50% of the grist must be malted wheat and this is no exception. This mahogany-colored beer is a moderately dark, spicy, fruity, malty, and refreshing wheat-based ale. Enjoy this version of the old-fashioned Bavarian wheat and beer that was often dark. In the 1950s and 1960s, wheat beers did not have a youthful image so most people drank them for their health-giving qualities. Here’s to your health!

Growler shared about 20 hours after it was opened. The pour wasn’t great but that should be expected from an almost day old growler, a dark chesnut brown body that was slightly muddy sat there with almost no head or visible carbonation (once again this is a day old growler). The aroma started subdued with notes of dark bread dough, dark fruit and a nice dose of spiceyness. Palate held up suprisingly well some srong carbonation showing up nicely and a rather full mouthfeel overall. Flavor was the best part of this beer with some rather strong spice, dark fruit skins, dark breads, touch of wheat. Nice beer, good job CMB.
