COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 13, 2009
This is my favorite of the Gordon Biersch beers. It pours kind of an ugly muddy brown color with a big off white head. The aroma is a little bready and herbal, with spices and berries. The flavor is strong with banana, clove, spice, herbal tea, and berries. A bit clunky, like most of GB beers, but tasty and not bad.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 4, 2009
On tap at LAX. Pours with a tan off white head over a muddy hazel. Aroma of toffee nuts and fruity esters. Taste is caramel, dark fruits, green raisins, candied apple, and banana. Watery mouthfeel, creamy carb.

Ron (2653) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 27, 2009
Draft at Gordon Biersch of Las Vegas. Had this while the wife and daughter were shopping. Amber in color with a decent head. Aroma of yeast, banana and spices. Flavor much the same with citrus added. Decent.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle from Squires. Pours hazy brown with nose of banana, dark malt, clove, spice. Tastes malty, with banana, clove, spicy brown sugary, and caramel flavors. Solid balance and complexity but waters out a bit late.

IrishBoy (3872) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
Draft at Gordon Biersch at the SFO airport! Excellent on draft! Nose of banana, cloves, and bready yeast. Murky red-amber with a big off hwite glass lacing head, the color and murkiness looks like tomato juice was added, but not! Flavor is caramel, banana, and a tiny bit of hop bitterness. Good thing I walked around the terminal while I had to wait three hours even if it was a 7:30 AM breakfast beer.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesvlle, VA. Pours a dark brownish copper with a large head. Good head retention and lacing. Big banana aroma with notes of bread and spice. Taste is bread, yeast, spice, citrus and banana. A bit thin.
