Cloudy amber color. Rich, attractive aromas of fresh banana cake, white toffee, and flan with a glycerous, bright, spritzy, off-dry medium body and a tingling, captivating, medium-length salty nuts, caramel, and fruity bubblegum finish. A delicious dunkel.

Weizen Dunkel

Beer Glass Hefeweizen Dark.jpg
Serve in a Weissbier Glass
Weizen dunkels are medium brown to black in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-5.5%. These dark wheat beers display full rich malt flavors along with floral and estery qualities of pale weizens. Dark weizens are produced with or without secondary fermentation in the bottle, with the corollary that these styles can be yeast-sedimented or unsedimented depending on the preference of the brewer. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Hacker-Pschorr Weisse Dark, Ayinger Ur-Weisse and Tucher Dunkles Hefe Weizen.
