Hazy medium brown color. Attractive, savory aromas and flavors of croque monsieur on pumpernickel, spiced banana chips, cocoa, and teriyaki jerky with a round, bright, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a complex, medium-long finish with impressions of chocolate nougat bar, bibb lettuce and spouts, and spiced dried fruits finish. A delightful interplay of sweet, meaty and savory make this dunkel stand out from the crowd.

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.
