Beer of the Week 33 Weissbier Dunkel

Franizskaner's Weissbier Dunkel

From their website:

Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel wins supporters with its refreshing yet aromatic and full-bodied flavour. This dark, cloudy specialty is a special treat for weiss beer connoisseurs and bock beer aficionados

From my notes:

cloudy, nearly opaque, coppery brown color. Fluffy, tan head w/ good retention, some banana and clove in the smell, big yeasty bread scent. Tastes of nuts, some, banana, and stone fruit. Smooth, so smooth very light carbonation, tiny hints of sour.

Cloudy, dark, and mysterious!

Dunkel’s are a relatively low alcohol, hearty beer and they can be enjoyed with other hearty foods: barbecue, sausages, roasted meats. Don’t be afraid of adding a little spice to the meal either it works well with dunkels.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
