"Winterweiss" Dunkel Weizen

Category: Weizen Dunkel

Date Tasted:
Country: Canada
Alcohol: 5%
Dark bronze color. Delicate, malty, grainy hoppy yeasty aromas and flavors of chocolate, roasted nuts, pumpernickel, and coffee with a soft, effervescent, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, crisp finish that shows shades of lemon-banana nut muffin, arugula, radish, and latte finish. A nice dunkelweizen with snappy grain character.

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.
