König Ludwig Weissbier Dunkel (500ml Bottle)
Special dark wheat malt gives König Ludwig Weissbier Dunkel its powerful flavour, its full-bodied malt aroma and accentuates its typically dark colour. His Royal Highness Prince Luitpold of Bavaria personally ensures the high quality of this beer and the selected raw materials from Southern Germany. A special brewing process with classical in-bottle fermentation results in a particularly digestible and sparkling yeasty wheat beer.
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.
