Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel

This "Bavarian style" dark wheat beer is brewed by Bayern Staatsbrauerei Weihenshephan in Freising, Germany, at what is reputed to be "The World's Oldest Brewery". It comes in a 500mL bottle and contains 5.3% alcohol.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel is a cloudy, ruddy brown wheat beer topped with a hurricane of cream head. It's nose is both yeasty and fruity, with a nice citrus quality. Wheat flavours come through plainly, as do notes of banana and a gentle spiciness.

This is a class act dunkel. It's quite refreshing for a darker beer--it's not too sweet and it has only a faint, slightly bitter finish. If you're a fan of flavourful wheat beers, you should be on your way to pick some up immediately.

8.5 out of 10.
