Now on Tap - Unkle Dunkleweizen

Similar to a Hefeweizen, these southern Germany wheat beers are brewed as darker versions (dunkel means "dark") with deliciously complex malts and a low balancing bitterness. Most are brown and murky from the yeast. The usual clove & fruity/banana characters will be present, some may even taste like banana bread.

Brewers specs:

40% pale malt
30% malted & unmalted wheat

Biscuit, Vienna, Munich and chocolate malts make up the rest of the grain bill.

American Bravo and German Spalt hops.

Fermented with a Bavarian Hefe-Weizen Ale yeast at 22 C

Starting Gravity: 12.5 Plato
5.6% ABV
