COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unfiltered Bavarian-style ale is a dark, full-bodied version of our popular NoríWester Hefe Weizen. This ale was brewed with selected Oregon wheat malt milled at our microbrewery, then slowly cold conditioned after fermentation. Our Dunkel Weizen has a unique and smooth finish distinct from other dark ales and lagers.

english pint / chocolate, caramel, fruit aroma. good appearance, but thin palate and lack of good flavor. not really wheaty, a little bit buttery, fruity and sweet, and just lacking.

This is a good ale, I wasnít hoping for much as it came in a bundle, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Clear light chestnut color with a smallish beige head. Mild chocolate and caramel aromas with some hints of DMS. Quite light and fizzy on the palate. Some light, dark malt flavors with just a touch of sweetness from the wheat late. This just seems to be a light dunkel with only a slight trace of wheat and no other major attributes. Really is not that bad as a brew, but donít market something you donít really have.

Boy, I sure do love Dunkel Weizens. Too bad this NorWester beer isnít a Dunkel Weizen! Itís a dunkel all right, and judged as that, itís a pretty good dunkel with some noticeable roastiness. Yet the wheatiness that I love so much is sorely lacking. Itís as if NorWester/Pyramid used a crisp American Wheat to add dark malt to. This beer is also somewhat watery and light-bodied, even for a dunkel. There just needs to be more grain bill present. Nevertheless, I admire their attempt at this rare style.

Dark brown. A pretty descent beer, just not a whole lot there. Certainly very drinkable, but just nothing outstanding.

hazy brown, off white head. lemon aroma with yeast, roast, coffee and wheaty malt. hint of rye? tart malt flavours with a coffee-ish finish.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours amber/brown with a thin tan head. Cereal, light hop and nutty aroma. Some citrus and wheat. Wood, earth and spice. Some burnt notes and lots of brown sugar. Radek nailed it with "Flowery". Finish was a bit off. Odd stuff, but drinkable.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Decent size head, light brown, rather clear for unfiltered weizen. Aroma was mineral, roasted malts and light noted hops. Acidic, chocolate, creamy, flowery dunkel. Looks good on paper but this blend did not work well.

Another kinda sorta bland dunkel. Dark in colour with a thin white to off white head. The nose is somewhat malty and flat. The taste is just about the same with some definate metallic characteristics, in fact it kind of reminded me of chewing on aluminum foil, but not really. Could have been a bad bottle.
