Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30° rediscovers Hefeweiss beers through a Belgian brewer’s lens. Envisioned by our own Matty “Smooth” Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove and banana notes that give way to a chocolaty warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate. “I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; we’ve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly,” said Gilliland. “Since this is Lips of Faith – and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different – making a big, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It’ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Grand Cru dunkelweiss.”

choice city. Extrm dark brown. Huge wheat heavy clove smell and flavor - creamy toasted wheat and spiced banana. Reminded of Aventinus - rich, sweet, syrupy, malt heavy, zero to no hop bitterness. Rich and tangy finish.

Black body with a decent brown top. Nose full of cloves and some banana. Quite phenolic. Clove dominates, chocolate banana rounds it out. Some sour banana on finish. Intriguing for the style as you definitely feel the alcohol warmth on the finish. A high-octane, winter warmer-styled dunkelweiss. A nice, seasonal rendition of the style.
