Emerson's Dunkel Weiss (500ml Bottle)
Literally "dark wheat beer", it is made from the same wheat malt and yeast as the Weissbier plus a little something which gives a more pronounced malty aroma and flavour. Dunkel is chocolate dark with a first hint of sweetness, but a dry finish.
A one-off, German-style dark wheat beer from Emerson's.
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.
