COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sarlacc83 (2379) - 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.

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.

Good example of the style. Strong dark malt and caramel aroma. Hints of wheat with a good dark mahogany color.

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 (6908) - 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.

hawthorne00 (4145) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle. Mid brown with a pale beige head that fades quickly from an inch. Aroma of spiced and chocolaty briochish dough with cloves and light vanilla/ banana notes. Just enough body, carbonation could be a touch higher for me. Just mouthfilling - hints of rich malt but swiggable. Sticky breadcrusts and a little chocolate with spices and moderate bitterness building towards the end. Top end for a style I'm yet to love.

JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Deep umber color with only a little haze. Smaller tight, dry bone colored head. Aromas of toasted malt, wheat and mild cloves and dark fruit. Sweet wheat and barley flavors in the front. Spices work their way into the middle with cloves and wintergreen. Some bits of banana join in. Smooth, fairly thick feel, with a crisp effervescence that helps it from getting cloying. Finish has some more dry toasted malt. A very good traditional dunkle weisse!

12oz bottle from the Beer Camp box set. Hazy amber brown with a full off-white head. Hay, grain, roasted malt and toffee, caramel, banana and spices. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Excellent.

0.355l [email protected]: pours hazy reddish brown with foamy stable off-white head. Aroma: intense banana, plums like esters, clove like phenols, wheat like bready malt backbone....flavor follows aroma; medium bodied, smooth texture, medium carbonation. Hardly waiting next week to get american sankey to tapping a keg with 6.3%abv. :)
