This winter wheat beer uses dark malting to provide subtle toasty notes. We then single-hop and dry-hop this beer with Citra hops from our friend Bradís farm. Interesting pineapple notes from the Citra hop provide a stark contrast to the toasty notes in the body. An engaging and sessionable Winter Seasonal. ABV: 5% IBUs: 62

12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. A chestnut pour with a thin cream head; toasted malt aroma; fruity, pineapple taste; and a thin but lingering, dry, toasty finish.

williamstome (1708) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Brown pour, no head. Pineapple, mango and light hoppiness in the aroma, coffee, roast, nuts in flavor. Finish manages to be both sticky and thin. Not bad overall.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Mahogany with a generous cappuccino foam. In defiance of appearance the aroma comprises floral, peachy and citrus hops with some Imperial Leather and soft lactic chocolate back notes. Flavour mushy digestive biscuit UK mild/brown ale base; peachy, floral and marmalade hop/yeast notes evoking London Pride; pronounced dunked Hobnob, lime cream and milky chocolate (Galaxy) aftertaste. Thoroughly attractive brew.

Bottle at home. Pours clear dark brown with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast, cookie, nutty, and light chocolate malt, dates and plums with light earthy and herbal hops. Flavor is malt forward with light hops and medium bitterness, cooked fruits, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

MaBeer1972 (1822) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Single bottle from Julioís. Pours out a light clear reddish brown color. Little to no head. Grassy-malt-citrus aromas and flavors. Not really a dunkelweizen at all with its American yeast strain and high hopping. Not sure where they were going with this.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2014 This one is so-so. Copper to brown in color. Fairly light bodied. Grass aroma with similar taste and some hoppyness.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours out clear purple(!) with a small white head. Dank hop aromas and some roasted notes wafting up out of the glass. The flavor is more interesting, sweet and roasted malts overlaid on top of bitter/citrus hops. Some wheat tang and some dank weedy flavors as well. OK palate, maybe a little harsh while also being too thin. Lingering dry finish, roasted hints, and wheat tang. The wheat really dominates the aftertaste. This is labeled here as a Dunkelweizen, but you can tell that Peak went off in their own direction. Sure itís dark and wheaty, but with a very American hop profile rather than the banana bomb you get with more traditional Dunkelweizens. Quite tasty overall, and I appreciate a winter beer that doesnít taste like a pile of random spices.
