COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear brown with an orange hue and a creamy and lacing beige head. Sweet spicy nose, cloves, yeast and banana indeed but also something reminding me of pumpkin spice. Medium body, sweet caramel, clove, caramel and cinnamon - and massive amounts of other spices. Quite a bitter finish. A rather unusual hybrid beer, but interesting. 220611
