Our Dunkle Weiss was brewed in collaboration with our friends at Briess Malt & Ingredients Co. This seasonís batch utilizes two new malts offered by Briess, their Chocolate Wheat Malt and their Caracrystal Wheat Malt. This combination of specialty malts and the flavors imparted by a classic Bavarian Yeast strain create a very smooth, chocolaty wheat beer with subtle fruit and spice notes. Cheers and enjoy!

Murky dark brown color with a moderate to taller taupe colored head. Dark fruit and toasted wheat and malt in the aroma. Sweet wheat and dark caramel initially in the flavors. More spice and yeast profile than the typical dunkelweiss. Light cloves and sweet wheat carry though to the finish. A hint of spice and acid late makes this light on the palate. Some chocolate and bananas noted later. A nice rendition. 4/10

Draft at the Ale House. Pours a deep near black with an offwhite head. The nose is pretty nice, some cocoa and banana, light clove. Pretty clean overall. Tangy wheat and toasty malts. On tasting, bananas and cocoa are somewhat dominate and work really well together. Pleasant and refreshing and really hits the spot for a dunkelweizen, albeit somewhat roasty. Really nice beer.

Bottle thanks to BeerFMAndy. Served in a weizen glass. Pours a very dark brown color along with a bit of light copper coloring around the edges when itís held up to the light. Starts out with a pretty massive three-finger head but falls down to a quarter finger after not too long without leaving behind too much lacing. Nose is a bit of light roasted malt with a light German yeast character. Really light yeast with a tiny bit of clove and not all that much else. A few slight medicinal notes. The taste brings a bit of roasted character along with some very light clove and banana. It started out a bit dark for the style and the flavor confirms that there is quite a bit too much roasted malt. There is a bit of wet cardboard in the taste as well. The roast totally takes over a rather thin body with low carbonation. Some light chocolate notes are there as well. This is one really strange dunkelweizen. Itís quite heavy and goes overly forward with the roasted malt and doesnít emphasize the yeast all that much. Unusual design and not particularly well done.

12 oz brown bottle, a collaboration with Breiss. PArt of the Timed Release Series. Pours a dark cola color with a dirty grey/brown head. It isnít the best looking dunkelweizen. They did good on the smell though, thick banana, tons of clovey spice, smells very fresh and malty. The taste is a bit of a letdown, the mouthfeel is extremely thin and watery. The malts are definitely the focus here, it tastes like raw malt though, not sweet fermented malt. This beer is just too watery. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-24-2010 19:53:48

Bottle: Pours a transparent deep copper brown with a spotty-lacing light beige head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel and wheat with a touch of earthy Bavarian hops and clove spice with lots of bready yeast. Starts with good fullness and a nice toasty wheaty sweetness with some clove spice, banana esters, and a hint of lemon citrus with a doughy yeasty complexity before an authentic lightly bitter and chocolatey finish. An enjoyable dunkelweizen.

Aroma of citrus and mild fruit... the aroma is the best part of this one. Flavor of citrus, followed by a mild hopped finish. This isnít bad, but it doesnít stand out among the other weiss brews.

nuplastikk (6105) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2010
Thick, dark, red-brown color, with a thin beige head. Pleasant chocolate, wheat, and banana aroma. A little undercarbonated and mellow, this is still a pretty sessionable and enjoyable brew. The chocolate tones are more pronounced than in your typical DunkelWeizen. The relatively low ABV helps to let the malt and yeast flavors shine. Some subdued lemon in the aftertaste. Drinkable and pleasant, but doesnít hold up in comparison to most German examples.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bottled. Poured medium chocolatey brown with an easily-resuscitated, dense beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted bananas and chocolate first and foremost, with touches of vanilla and cinnamon accenting.. biscuity notes emerged as it warmed up.. sweet, but enjoyable. The flavor found milk chocolate-covered bananas at the core with tart wheat extending outward.. dry, toasted chocolate and banana again on the finish, with some vanilla too.. again sweet. Lighter-bodied and sweet as mentioned on the palate.. balance was alright, and this was somewhat refreshing.. not bad at all.

Bottle from double D. Dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grains, banana, mild clove and spicy yeast. Tate of banana, extremely mild chocolate, wheat, clove and mild yeast. Went down pretty effortlessly, okay at best.
