Dunkels are some of the finest beers in the world and have some of the most storied producers. Wheat (weizen) provides the structure and Munich malt and Dark Wheat provide the color. We modeled this brew to have a modest malt bill and at just over 4% its a nice beer to wrap your head around this winter. Our yeast gives a nice lemon edge to the apparent dark malt and the lightness of body really lets each malt be discovered.

Light reddish brown thin head. Almost tastes like an extract brew. Drinkable. Malty, but not sweet. Light body. Another good session beer from civil life.

Tap @ The Civil Life. Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a disappearing cream colored head. Very nutty, toasty malty, light banana, somewhat herbal aroma. Toasty malty, light banana, quite nutty,slightly burnt, dry flavor. I can drink it but it’s completely off style and nothing like what you can get in Germany.

On tap at The Civil Life. Pours a medium brown color with white head. Malty, caramel, wheat flavors. Doesn’t quite match the dunkelweizen style.

Tasted on tap at brewpub in a nonic pint glass. It poured a deep reddish brown color with thick, long-lasting off-white foam and lace. Bready, toasty, tart, perfumey noble-ish hops, faint apricot and black pepper. Somehow full-bodied, with nice chewy husky-whole-grain-bread mouthfeel and then a crisp, dry finish. Less banana and clove than other examples of style, but nonetheless well-balanced, multi-layered, and eminently drinkable. Highly recommended.

Pours cloudy mahogany with a beige head. The aroma has walnuts, banana, cloves, rich dark wheat and light leather. It has a medium body that’s a bit rough and has some soft carbonation. The flavor starts off quite dry with bananas, walnuts, spice and a papery aspect. The finish dries out a bit. This is much drier and more refreshing than most dunkelwiezens I’ve had. Well done.
