COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark wheat has a bold, dark color that surprises the drinker with a mild clean flavor. This beer is a black version of an American Wheat, with some locally malted corn added for a drier, more drinkable, local flavor. Germans would consider this a beer an American version of a Dunkel Weizen.

MadRobin (2411) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. can in Kearney, NE. Nearly opaque, dark cola brown with a thin khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, banana and grain. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, grain and cola. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. If this is a dunkel weizen, it seems shy on the wheat. Maybe the added corn muted the wheat. At least the corn does not come through strongly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can; poured a dark cola brown with a light brown head. Aroma of wheat, must, cola and caramel. Roasty and toasty flavor; wheaty with caramel and ashy notes. Quite dry

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Can at home. Pours dark brown to black with one finger of head. Aroma is roast malt and not much else. Little wheat in the flavor. Mostly just very roasty and somewhat thin bodied. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jrodooo5 (1275) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Fairly run of the mill beer but certainly drinkable & decent for the style. Not quite as watery as most wheats & the deep dark pour is kind of cool. Ok - I wouldn’t go seek this out again though!

Can poured into a pint glass -- Pours a deep dark brown with active fizzies and very little white head. Smells like dark malt, hint of roast. First flavors are roasty and bland, as it sits and warms it opens up very nicely. Light malt sweetness that melds with the darker malts nicely. Recommend serving above fridge temps.

weihenweizen (2262) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Refrigerated can, from queenholly, poured into a weizen glass. Dark brown with big light brown head. Aroma is banana, medium body, medium/light carbonation, creamy texture, and little lacing. Taste is dark malt, chocolate, coffee, hints of banana. If I drank this blindly I would guess coffee stout, but has subtle dunkelweizen characteristics. Thanks for another state tick queenholly.

Pours a thin black. Nice aromas of wheat, banana, and coffee. Flavors are a let down. Some sweet grains and coffee flavors.. But a thin watery finish.
