We are brewing a classic Bavarian-Style Dunkle Weisse (Dark Wheat) beer. Ayinger’s wheat beers are among the best produced anywhere in the world. We decided to bring together our two approaches to the style and create an all-new, rich, and malty version of the style. It’s brewed in our open fermenter to allow the authentic Bavarian yeast strain to shine, with complex aromas of banana bread, caramel malt and clove.

12oz bottle pours with a somewhat murky mohagony colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up some jammy notes moving quickly into earthy fig and dates as well as light mineral to yeasty note at the end of the draw. The taste delivers similar notes of sweet jammy fruitiness sliding into prunes and a  bit of earthy dates. There is a mild biscuit maltiness that seems to have a faint rauch sensation too. Pretty passable offering.

Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a thick frothy head. Substantial lacing. Aromas of spicy yeasts, caramel and bread. Flavors are caramel malt, dark fruit, brown sugar and earthy hops. Velvety smooth and malty. Creamy mouthfeel.

355ml bottle bought at Q Club in SoHo, Central.

Looks:Translucent ruby brown colour with a thick ring of dirt- like yeast sediments; (Yeast pour) half finger head with off-white foam which lasted for 1 minute; Fair sticky lacing and zero carbonation.

Aroma: Fragment roasted malt, with banana, burnt caramel, strong toffee, hazelnuts, floral, strong molasses, phenolic, earth, biscuits, strong yeast, lemon and light grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet roasted malt, with strong toffee, strong caramel, nuts, banana, fair tartness, floral, fair molasses, spices, bread, yeast, light lemon, fair bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Thick and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Strong roast maltyness in a solid background, round and pretty wholesome. Wheatyness and tartness are downplayed. Nutty, with strong dark toffee and chewy caramel dominate plus some banana ester. Slightly flowery with fair sweetness. Biscuity with fair lemon to round. Very robust!

Hoppiness: floral, earth, lemon and light grass in nose. Spices, floral, light lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is light but notable for an abrupt, fair to low astringent roast malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Toffee nutty and quite easy to mouth.

Comments: The typical Ayinger's goodness is here, with strong chewy toffee-ish roast malt being the focus, but it lacks the freshness and good head of Ayinger Ur-weisse. Still, it is still a very solid and wholesome dark weisse. A pretty good start from the "Across The World" series!

bottle - This brew smells of caramel malt, yeast, and wheat. The flavor is similar and mostly sweet. It has a lively palate and a medium body.

Sarlacc83 (2514) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle. From back log notes. A: Dull brown with a creme color head that lasts for quite awhile. Lacing. N: Clove, raisin, prune, rye bread, pumpernickel, toast, earth, and pine. Bit of leather in here, too, with a lingering yeast profile. All-spices in addition. T: Quite sweet with a touch of bitterness and ample spice from the yeast and the hops. M: Medium body, creamy and tingly carbonation, no alcohol. O: Delicious stuff. Balanced and clean with an inviting fall-like spiciness.

GreenCat (241) - SLOVENIA - NOV 27, 2017
0,5 l on tap at Godec pub. Pours dark brown with a big lasting tan head. Aroma of ripe banana, yeast, caramel, wheat. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture slick, carbonation average for the style. Finish is medium, sweet ripe banana is complemented well with light slightly peppery bitterness. Delightful.

kevinator (2906) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2017
Good example of the style. Strong dark malt and caramel aroma. Hints of wheat with a good dark mahogany color.

Oakes (19697) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2017
Medium brown, light wheaty, has a light fruitiness, and a mellow wheaty note.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Bottle. Deep brown. Strong white head. Sherry flavor, slightly banana. Plus syrup and coriander aroma. Quite alcoholic and sweetness derived from molt. Medium-full.

kramer (6989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty perfect for the style, lots of over ripe bananas and yeastiness with some chocolate, earthiness, and dark wheat. The flavor is earthy, full of banana and yeast, just slightly sweet. Some nice roasted and chocolate notes on the finish. A slight spicy clove note up front develops ofter a while. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice stuff. I like me some Dunkleweizen. 3/8/8/3/15
