Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel (500ml Bottle)

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel 500ml Bottle

Description

Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer.

Tasting Notes

Poured out a modest light bubbly tan head, hazy caramel brew (dead on weizen look) - wasn’t totally sure what I was gonna see with this as it’s my first D-W but I think that the colour of this beer is excellent. Minimal lacing. Subdued aromas of bananas, cloves and vanilla extract (weakest of the three scents) and plums. The taste is pretty good and I wish I had a keg of this as it goes down waaaay to easy. Solid flavour that does not back down but never ever gets close to actually being strong as this is one soft beer. Bananas, wheat, toasty malts, cloves, pepper and a touch of orange. Medium bodied, velvety smooth throughout and finishes with a bit of coating. Good stuff!

Dunkelweizen

A dark take on the German wheat theme, dunkelweizens have the same banana and clove notes of their pale cousins, but also have earthy, toasty, chocolatey notes from the addition of dark malts. They are "shoulder season" wheat beers to many drinkers - something a little more robust than a hefeweizen for the fall and spring seasons, but not as rich as winter’s weizenbocks. Alcohol is between 4.8-5.6% generally, bitterness is low, and carbonation is high. Occasionally, you will see dark versions of American Wheats, but these are uncommon.
