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.

Can share at Chriso’s, thanks to Gene for my first Nebraskan beer. 5.2%. Dark brown or black, small dense foamy tan head. Aroma is soft biscuity malts, bourbon biscuit in particular. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste has more bourbon biscuit, ashy malts, some metallics in the finish. Decent.

MadRobin (2436) - 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 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
