Category: Weizen Dunkel

Country: Canada
Alcohol: 5.2%
Minutely hazy dark copper color. Aromas and flavors of caramelized squash and fall fruits and apple butter on pumpernickel toast with a supple, tangy, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length finish that presents accents of grass, cherry-nectarine soufflé, toffee, and pepper finish. A lively, lightly caramelized and fruity dunkel that will go well at the table.

Weizen Dunkel

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.
