Impression: I’d had their regular Weizen on tap at their pub and though perfectly fine with no flaws, I found it just a tad thin on flavor. I saw it and this Dunkel version at a store in bottles but only had room for one so chose this. A gorgeous pour with a chiffon like rocky head and some cooked banana in the nose. It’s got a nice fruity palate and the lingering finish is just dry enough but again it’s just a tad thin. It’s going well with my Weisswurst and Weizen lovers should seek it out but I’d stick with their non-wheat offerings myself even if I’ve had many worse.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
