Dunkles Weissbier  ·  5.6% ABV

This is sort of a dark version of the Hefe Weizen. The actual style for this beer is "Dunkel Weizen" which literally means dark wheat. The flavor is a bit more complex than the Hefe Weizen owing largely to a greater variety of malts. This is brewed with pale, wheat, caramel and roasted malts. The wheat gives it a tart finish, the caramel malt provides color and some background sweetness and the roasted malts provide color and flavor. The hops used are Hersbrucker for bittering and for aroma, but they are not a prominent part of the profile. Much more prominent is the yeast character provided by that crazy German weizen yeast that we used in the Hefe Weizen. It combines with the malts to make this a very flavorful and unique beer.
