Dunkel Weisse is the darker version of the more common Weissbier (or Hefeweizen as we Americans call it), which is a creamy Bavarian wheat beer with pronounced clove, pepper, banana, and sometimes bubblegum flavors. (To familiarize yourself with the style, you may want to try our year-round DreamWeaver Wheat if you haven’t already.) Like a Hefeweizen, its darker counterpart is also brewed with a mash of wheat and malted barley. However, the Dunkel differs in that it also contains a variety of caramelized or roasted malts to lend a deeper, darker coloration and further malt complexity. Scratch #156 features all of the components of a classic German-style Hefeweizen overlaid with hints of toasted bread, chocolate, and roast. Prost!
