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.”

Bomber from Whole Foods Market North Raleigh. Pours a while ago and I can still smell strong banana coming from the glass two feet away. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of banana, banana bread, caramel, soy. The taste is sweet bready malts, banana, pineapple, caramel and a mildly hoppy finish. Something almost smoky in there as well. Medium bodied. Enjoyable.

A - Pours a dark black-ruby color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. He head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is full of banana and clove with pepper with a bit of wheat and sweet malt. T - Starts off with some clove and banana flavor with some wheat. Through the middle some sweet malt and some more yeast flavor with some more clove. The finish is a mix of banana, clove, some bubblegum, some rich sweet malts, and a touch of booze. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a spicy and lightly sweet and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice take on an stronger version of a dunkelweizen. The balance is nice with some really good strong banana and clove notes.

Sweet dark coffee. Highly carbonated. I don’t think German’s would approve of this beer. Middle of the road.
