COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 1st in the "S" Series is a tribute to craft brewing - the Dunkel Weiss Bock. Originally brewed in Munich in 1907, the DWB is the strongest Weiss beer ever brewed at Sudwerk. The best Yeast and wheat character of a Hefe Weizen, the malty richness of a Dunkel, and the strength of a Bock are combined to produce a smooth, well-rounded, and full-flavored taste. Mahogany in color, the DWB weighs in at a hearty 7% ABV. Raise your glass and celebrate 20 years of Sudwerk . . . Prost!

Bottle. Dark brown color/ tan head. Tart dark wheat bread, lemon, dark fruit aromas. Medium bodied. Tart dark berry fruit, tart lemon, dark wheat sour bread flavors--sort of a dark Berliner Wheat if there is such a beer

DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
16-Jun-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 20-May-10 for $5.99 at BevMo in La Mesa, CA) This beer pours a cloudy, dark-brown body capped by an inch plus of tan head comprised of larger bubbles that show magnificent retention, but poor lacing. The aromatic intensity is medium-high with scents of both ripe and green banana, date, cola, earth, and smoke. The flavor is surprisingly tart and acidic, with cranberry, date, banana, and raisin, plus a healthy dose of yeasty, dark bread, clove and a faint soapiness late in the finish. For a full-bodied beer, it’s unusually refreshing because of all the acidity, but on the other hand, this style isn’t supposed to be this tart, and the finish is a bit astringent. Carbonation is medium-high and a bit burpy. A thick layer of yeasty sediment coats the bottom of the bottle. Overall, it’s quite drinkable, but kind of out there on the perimeter of the style guidelines.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Sampled on 10/29/2010. This weizen bock pours a medium to dark brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized off white foamy head. The aroma is malty, caramel and sweet with a touch of grain. A medium bodied weizen bock. The malts are caramel, fruity and semi-sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. There is some tartness here, which I assume is unintentional, but it kind of interesting none the less. Without the tartness it’s a semi-sweet weizen bock. With the tartness, its a mixture of sweet, tart and bready. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
(22oz bottle thanks to ericandersnavy) clear medium brown with creamy tan bubbles on top. Nose of leather, light anise, vanilla extract, cracker, and light chemical. Taste of alcohol, raisins, cherry, chemicals, phenols, grapes, lactic acid (not intentional), with a possible early infection. Finish is very carbonated (also a potential sign of infection) and really it misses the mark overall.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2010 Aroma is absolutely awesome! I have seen only one other beer that has this appearance and it was awesome too! I don’t know if they intended this to be sour or not? I doubt it. Plus it doesn’t say anything about being sour in the description. Sometimes beers are glorious accidents. It really doesn’t seem like a mistake because the the complexity is brilliant. If you love sours like I do maybe you will get lucky like I did with this bottle. The combination of sour and heavy duty wheat is awesome! I will get more. This could win a sour competition. The big S on the bottle means SOUR for me! Again If you like sours just go buy it and thank me later. It has a wild yeast flavor. I must talk to the brewer and ask what his intention was with this beer. One that will never be duplicated. Trust me. Get some! Yes Yes Yes!!! To each his own. --------&# six more bottles and drank two tonight...........Absolutely incredible!!!!! a real treasure! If you know someone who likes sours please tell them about this beer.

MikeyMalts (64) - Davis, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
22oz. btl. from Nugget Market. Pours a really dark brown in color with a tan-caramel like color head. Wheat aroma is definitely apparent with a hint of bananas and some sourness. Malt aroma is there, but hidden in the background. Bubbles are a big player in the mouth-feel, a smooth one with big sour notes on taste. The sourness mellows out quickly but with some still lingering on the palate. Glad to have bought it, but might not have again.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours with an opaque, very deep brown body, and a large tan head. Aroma of banana, sharp phenols, roast, flowers, pepper. Taste is lightly tart, wheat, leather. Seems like early signs of a lactic infection. Chocolate, chalky, thin, orange peel. Thin and dry. Something is off.

3.5
bb (9519) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle. Hazy toffee colored beer with a tan head. Wheat and banana aroma with light caramel. Wheat and toffee/caramel flavor with banana and spice. Medium bodied. Banana lingers with caramel/toffee.
