DunkelWeizen is the latest limited-edition bottled release in the Small Batch Brew series for 2022. This style of dark wheat beer originates from southern Germany, and our delicious take on it has been crafted by one of the brewing Assistant Managers, Adam Lumb.
Using equal parts wheat and Munich malts, together with Crystal and Carafa for colour, the finished beer catches the eye with a dark red hue before satisfying the taste buds with a smooth, sweet finish. Hallertau Mittelfruh hops are added for a low bitterness, so as not to over-compete with the real star of the show – the Hefeweizen yeast, which adds the aroma and flavours of banana, clove, and vanilla.
Although dark in colour, DunkelWeizen is light on the palate and best enjoyed during the warmth of an early summer’s day.
