Cloudy bronze color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate nuts, toasted fig and rye breads, and green tea root beer with a silky, crisp, spritzy, fruity medium body and a tingling, quick finish that shows nuances of molasses, ketchup, grass, and nut shell finish. A sturdy dunkel beer.

Weizen Dunkel

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.
