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.

Draught at the brewpub in Las Vegas
Hazy dark amber color. Clean aroma of ripe banana. Sweet taste, mix of their Hefeweizen and Dunkel (caramel and banana) and this one as well is not much hopped.

Draught, GB Miami
Milky looking rich chestnut body with a thick head. Banana and marshmallow aroma. Sort of tart, with some banana and hints of chocolate. Kind of funky/sour note is a little weird, but otherwise a std example.

Sammy (8382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Enjoyed on-tap at the Miami brewpub. A hefeweizen with lots more chocolate malt, nothing wrong with that. An above average mouthfeel with bananna consistency and taste. A good dunkel, good looking with lots of lace. Milkshake, though taste is on the sweet side and no complexity.

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.
