Dunkelweizen is my favorite style. Black Walnut Dunkel has an incredibly intense sourness blended with a fruity sweetness and rich maltiness that makes this beer absolutely unique. The best way I could describe it is as a triple dunkelweizen. This beer proves that US craft brewers can create original, superior beers, ads135 (4864) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 24, 2015
A very nice dunkel. I’m not sure what the walnuts add as I don’t detect any nuttiness, but its got a great, mellow sweetness. Dark brown with a thick head, sweet aroma. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2013
This beer’s aroma has a strong black walnut profile with toasted malts and banana coming through as well, and the appearance was a reddish dark brown with a small, white, and foamy head. The taste was mildly sweet, slightly umami, and a touch sour, which was really enjoyable, and the palate combined a medium body, thin texture, soft carbonation, and an abrupt finish. bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2013
some fruity esters, banana. some sweetness in the nose. dark brown color. really complex flavors -- earthy. knowing it has walnuts in it makes me think that i’m tasting them, but very subtle. unique, interesting beer. jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Has a soy sauce aroma and a foamy brown head with a dark opaque color. Smooth flavor with lots of malt and a sweet finish.

Draft at Baileys range. Pours brown with a half inch of Khaki foam. Leaves a bit of lacing. Has the walnut notes On the nose along with some of the yeast. Has a but of the bubble gum mixed with the nuts. It’s almost like a black cherry. I don’t know who thought to pair these two but they’re fucking delicious. chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into weizen glasses.
Pours a dark brown with a two finger beige head. No visible lacing. A pleasing aroma with notes of banana, cocoa, subtle spice, and earthiness. Opens with subtle toffee and cocoa joined by nutty banana bread, and finishes smooth with mild earthiness. Lighter-side of medium bodied. The level of carbonation is perfect, pleasant, but not in a way that disrupts the silky, smooth mouthfeel. The black walnuts really add a new dimension to an excellent dunkelweizen base. Another excellent brew from Perennial. They have yet to disappoint.

750mL capped bottle. Bottled on 2/2013. I have to admit this was pretty damn delicious, was not expecting. I will also add I had no idea this was a wheat beer and was surprised to read that on the bottle. I got no esters in this beer. General a clean, slightly earthy maltiness. Has a mild and cool sweet, not sugary aspect that I could only attribute to the walnuts. I really liked it. weihenweizen (3991) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent chestnut brown with big fluffy beige head. Some lacing, light body, medium carbonation, and tart aroma. Taste is estery banana, rich tart, some black walnuts, and a hint of earthyness which peaks out from time to time. This is good, original, and may be the best dunkleweizen I have had.
