Radiant with a beautiful medium-roast espresso colour, Wild Rose Dunkelweisse is silky smooth with suggestions of chocolate, bananas and cloves. With a style deeply rooted in Bavarian brewing history, this dark unfiltered wheat beer is brewed to 5.5% alc./vol., and is highly complex in both its flavour and aroma. Our “dunkel” is made from a mixed mash of wheat and barley malts as well as a special blend of caramelized and roasted malt expressing a rich colour and wonderful complexity. Notes of coffee and a hint of smoke join together to create a finish that lingers long after your glass is empty. Pairs well with spicy ginger dishes and banana splits!

On tap outdoors at the brewery. Dark brown. A little cloudy and even muddyish in the bottom of the glass. Fair head with stacks of bubbles more than foam. A little bit of banana and light smooth chocolate in a dusty yogurty cream body.

Draft at the brewery. Pours very hazy medium to pale brown, soft head, nice lacing. Nose is very estery, lots of bananas, fruit, chocolate. But very soft, mild, not as intense as some. Palate is more of the same, very heavy on the bananas, plus figs, milk chocolate, ashy in the finish. Not bad.

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009
On cask at the Wild Rose Taproom during the beer launch. Unfiltered, pours an opaque medium chocolaty brown with only slight carbonation and a thin beige head. Aroma has a lot of chocolate overtop banana, wheat, cloves and a slight bit of lemon. Flavour is similar, with wheat and banana up front, followed by chocolate and caramel, finishing with clove and lemon-pepper notes. Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that reminded me of powdered milk, but not neccessarily in a bad way. Very tasty and a nice representation of the style.
