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.

Taste comprises brown bread, cocoa powder, dark fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough for style and definitely the best dark wheat bier I’ve raked from Nebraska!!!

Tap @ Thunderhead. Pours a deep brown appearance with a brown head. Dark chocolate, light coffee, a touch fruity aroma. Light toffee, toasty malty, chocolate flavor with a hint of banana. A bit thin. I was a little disappointed with this one.
