COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dunkelweizen translates from German to mean dark wheat. Gordon Biersch Dunkelweizen highlights the undertones of dark roasted malted wheat and the unique flavors produced by our special Hefeweizen yeast strain. Our Dunkelweizen adheres to all of the traditions of the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516) and is naturally carbonated.

bhensonb (15352) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 28, 2008
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Hazy dark amber color with an emphemeral beige/tan head. Dark wheaty/malty aroma with a touch of spice and citrus. And banana. Body is medium with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is banana, clove and some darkish malt. Finish is more sweet than bitter. Pretty decent beer.

Wegro (332) - Fresno, California, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Pours a great murky brown color, nice head with great lacing. Flavor is banana, spices, and some candy sweetness. light/medium body, goes down easy and finishes quickly. not bad but the candy sweetness wasn’t doing it for me. would’ve liked more dark malt flavor, too.

frankR (149) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Heavy banana on the nose and tongue. Malty sweet finish. Lackluster palate and complexity compared to the great German Dunkelweizens. For a larger brewery and price this is an excellent offering from Gordon Biersch.

bb (9525) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Hazy caramel beer with a nice light tan head. Banana, clove, caramel, and spice aroma. Wheat, caramel, banana, clove flavor. Medium-light body. Refreshing. Light citrus, caramel, yeast and wheat lingering.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2008
On tap, vegas airport. A very cloudy copper/brown with a large head, good lacing. Huge banana aroma, a little clove. Flavor seems to be missing something in the finish and the palate is a bit thin. Solid overall.

dwyerpg (6231) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Looks nice. Very cloudy. A little bit of banana in the aroma. It’s all a build-up to a disappointingly thin beer. Not a lot of flavor, just a lot of wheat.

DuffMan (10452) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2007
{draft @ New Orleans loc’n} Their current "feature" brew (seasonal?). Golden amber, hazy, dense merangue of a head. Pleasant banana bread aroma, soft spices. Soft smooth palate of banana and toasted wheat, slightly tart finish. Nice.

2.7
AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Mediocre dunkel here. Mild aromas and flavors. Very thin body for a dunkel. Nothing bad about it. Just nothing great.

2.7
jefcon (1884) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Candy sugar in the aromas, along with roasted wheat and some stark, plain yeast that have a banana-ish smell. Very dark in color, attractive. Malty on the palate, but thin. Sweetening finish.

3.2
fiulijn (20806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Draught at the brewpub in Las Vegas
Hazy dark amber color. Clean aroma of ripe banana. Sweet taste, mix of their Hefeweizen and Dunkel (caramel and banana) and this one as well is not much hopped.
