Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30° rediscovers Hefeweiss beers through a Belgian brewer’s lens. Envisioned by our own Matty “Smooth” Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove and banana notes that give way to a chocolaty warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate. “I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; we’ve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly,” said Gilliland. “Since this is Lips of Faith – and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different – making a big, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It’ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Grand Cru dunkelweiss.”

Bottle at CaptainCougar’s local tasting, thanks! Dark clear maroon, tan head. Aroma of freshly mown grass. Taste is chocoaltey, decent hop balance. Tasty. But it’s not a dunkelweizen.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear brown with an orange hue and a creamy and lacing beige head. Sweet spicy nose, cloves, yeast and banana indeed but also something reminding me of pumpkin spice. Medium body, sweet caramel, clove, caramel and cinnamon - and massive amounts of other spices. Quite a bitter finish. A rather unusual hybrid beer, but interesting. 220611

mcberko (19175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours dark copper / brown. Sweet malts, biscuits and floral notes combine on this one with some dark fruits and slight chocolate. Alcohol is well-contained. Very enjoyable.

brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
A: Pours a dark brown color with some red highlights and a creamy off-white head.

S: Banana overload is a good way to describe the nose. Intense banana ester with plenty of sweetness, dark fruits, caramel, and toffee. A fairly mild roasted malt note and a hint of cola.

T: Still lots of banana on the palate, but it’s significantly more restrained. Sweet caramel malt and fruit notes along with some nice clove. There’s just a tiny hint of creamy vanilla on the back end.

M: Medium to full in body with a really smooth and creamy carbonation and mouthfeel.

O: At 9%, I was a bit worried about this beer. Really great stuff, though.

bhensonb (15841) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bomber from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours dark brown with a slight bubbly tan head. Aromas of banana and yeast/spice. Med body. Flavor is like a dark Belgian ale with really ripe banana and some clove. Maybe even chocolate coated banana. Finishes slightly towards sweet and definitely banana. It drinks pretty well.

djd07 (15651) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2011
On tap at Flying Saucer. Pours a very dark amber with a medium frothy light tan head that diminishes rather quickly. The aroma is clove, banana, and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet banana and a nice spicy cinammon in the finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well, a very good dunkel from New Belgium.
