This is a dark German Heffeweizen, better known as a Dunkelweissen (dunkel means dark in German.) We accomplish this through a generous addition of dark roasted malts which add not only the color but an overlay of chocolately and roasted flavors. A complex beer with a rich flavor matrix stemming from a grain bill that’s more than 60% wheat, German Noble hops and fermented using our Bavarian yeast strain. At 6.9% ABV, it is a great balance between strength and grace.

Pours a brown, slightly copper, from a bottle, thin white head. A bit toasty aroma and flavor, like wheat toast. Okay beer.

Looks like chocolate milk. Strong starting head, but it settles to rim bubbles. A few spots of lace are left on the glass. Sour nose with a toasted malt background. Low wheat and a modicum of yeast. Not so dark nor so wheaty on the tongue, but these tastes are the strongest. Neutral body with an elevated level of carbonation. No real flaws, but not very interesting either.

Bottle. Biscuity and tangy bread crust and dried fruit aroma. Almost clear ruddy dark brown under a quickly dropping tawny, tan blanket. Slightly sour bread crust and spicy toffee with very faint bitterness. Medium body, fairly sweet finish, moderate carbonation. Not a weizen, but not crappy either.

Powdered banana and raw wheat aromas. Glowing orange and headless. Very sweet overall, features strange coffee and cream flavors, mild tartness. Pasty and oily caking feel. Strange brew.

bomber into my weizen glass. cloudy deep amber color with some bubbles coming up. aroma is bran cereal with a little brown sugar and grass. Taste is a light yeast with banana in the end. don;t know this style well so this could be a great example of the style. It is another easy drinking offering from blue hills

SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light brown color with almost no head. Nose is lightly nutty with some maple and brown sugar notes. Palate is lightly fizzy with a tingly mouthfeel. Flavors of nuts, brown sugar. Fairly simple, not offensive, but simple and easy.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark copper, like an old penny with a 1/2" off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malt and wheat. Flavor is heavy on the caramel malt, almost akin to a Doppelbock. A little bit of wheat and fruit. Smooth moderate body with low carbonation. Good, but not what I was expecting.

22oz bottle in a weizen glass. Pours amber/brown with a lingering, cream-colored head. Aroma of wheat, light roasted notes, and some hops but not a lot. Flavor about the same with the malts more prominent. Average texture. A decent beer.

ElDuderino (184) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2011
On tap, 5 gallon keg from the brewery. Pours a hazy caramel body that is more golden than brown. Nice creamy tan head with some retention and lots of frothe. Nose is sweet and malty with some butter and raisin notes, and the mouthfeel is pleasantly thick, without being heavy. Lots of the wheat beer yeasty weight. The flavors have up front notes of caramel and dry grass, with the malty notes on the cusp of turning darker and richer but not quite making it. The beer finishes with a little dry chocolate malt, but still seems a little wet. The hops shore up the messiness a lot, but are otherwise non-existant in the flavor. This brew is really driven by the yeast, which is delicious, and everything I want a dunkel to be.

davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
On tap. Very nice and aromatic. Aromas of ginger, caramel, and spice. Taste is sweet, with average length. Palate is oily, with a medium body. Amber, cloudy, with no head.
