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.”

Pours a deep red-amber, with a thick, pillowy head that is off-white in color and persists through the session. Simply beautiful to look at. Aroma is balanced between bready sourness of yeast and sweetness of banana and sugar. This sour-sweet character translates to taste. The sweet flavors of banana, burnt sugar, and spices are countered evenly by the flavor of the yeast and malts. However, this potent beer hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is fine--thin and effervescent. In sum, an excellent, balanced beer that is represented well.

22 oz. bottle from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a larger, foamy beige head. The aroma and flavor had banana, clove, caramel malts, chocolate, sweet bread, lightly toasted, a mild nutty character, hints of brown sugar and spices. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

Patrickctenchi (6094) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bomber: Clear, deep brown, with a tight, tall, tan head. Dark wheat, chocolate, clove aroma. Taste is slightly spicy, chocolate/old banana.....clove, dark fruit....bubblegum. Different. Sweet, earthy...a little too much on the clove.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2014
Rated on 4-12-2011. This bottled beer pours a medium sized smooth beige head with a short retention, transparent reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, suggestion of chocolate, sweet, bananas, clove, and lightly peppery. The taste is sweet, caramel malt, suggestion of chocolate, pepper, bananas, and clove. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable even at 9%ABV. It has a very good flavor, worth trying and a beer I would drink again.

Pours clear brown with a tan head. Smells are sweet with toffee and caramel. Taste is wheat, spicy and some Hubba bubba? Nice beer.

SDalkoholic (2359) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: The liquid poured dark leather brown and created a huge monstrous foam head. As for the aroma, my nose is met with a strong scent of banana bread and a faint smell of caramel in the distant background. Flavor brings about hints of salty and sweetness that stem from the rich base of caramel dark malt that also has a touch of spicy yeast that revive a subtle taste of banana. Solid dunkelweizen at an affordable price.

Bomber. Not much aroma from this style or how dark it poured. Really malt heavy and sour.

Has an funky, non-offensive, unidentifiable smell. Tastes like your basic coffee chocolate stout. Gets better with each drink. Has a dark chocolate aftertaste.

The aroma is fantastic with strong flavors. The taste is an assortment of dark fruit with prunes. Also has a bit of smokey wood, slight toffee. A beer for the true beer drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
