Dunkelweizen translates from German to mean dark wheat. Gordon Biersch Dunkelweizen highlights the undertones of dark roasted malted wheat and the unique flavors produced by our special Hefeweizen yeast strain. Our Dunkelweizen adheres to all of the traditions of the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516) and is naturally carbonated.

"kind of an odd mix of flavors that ends up working fairly well. like the spicyness and fruit in the aroma and flavor...a little on the thin and overcarbonated side which takes away from the whole just a little."

On tap at RDU. Don’t know if I’ve had this style before. Strong sweet taste. Some banana taste. Body is a beautiful cloudy amber. Love the look.

Hazy brown color, nice head with great lacing. Flavor is all about banana and sweetness. Would have liked more dark malt flavor.

Pint between flights@Dulles airport, 01/09/12. Muddy copper glinting with bronze, slim beige top. Good clove and banana aroma. Chocolate-coated digestives, blueberries, stir of cherry, banana and spice. Nowt special but well-executed and the best beer I’ve had in an airport outside of Munich.

Pours cloudy orange/brown with thin lacing. Aroma is butterscotch, caramel. Medium-bodied palate is nicely balanced with a good caramel flavor without being too sweet. Enjoyed throuroghly.

seymour (1495) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 24, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Tasted on tap at San Francisco brew pub in standard pint glass. Poured a dark brown color with yeast/chill haze and moderate beige foam, somewhat lasting with a little fine lace. Excellent aromas of rising dough, fresh baked whole-wheat bread, faint flowery hops and fruity ale yeast esters. Flavors of complex barley malts, mellow wheat, dry roasted grains, soft hops bitterness with some apricot, citrus and dried sour fruits from the fermentation. Medium body and well-rounded mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Lasting bittersweet aftertastes fades to dryness. Delicious. Definitely an underappreciated style.
