COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark wheat has a bold, dark color that surprises the drinker with a mild clean flavor. This beer is a black version of an American Wheat, with some locally malted corn added for a drier, more drinkable, local flavor. Germans would consider this a beer an American version of a Dunkel Weizen.

MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. can in Kearney, NE. Nearly opaque, dark cola brown with a thin khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, banana and grain. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, grain and cola. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. If this is a dunkel weizen, it seems shy on the wheat. Maybe the added corn muted the wheat. At least the corn does not come through strongly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
