Michelob Dunkel Weisse is the second of the PR beers I’d received back in August and forgot to write about. It’s a new beer, an unfiltered dark wheat beer from the house of A-B, one which I was a bit surprised to see—it’s definitely a departure for them and an interesting style choice.
Dunkel Weisse 5.5% alcohol by volume.
Appearance: Kind of a dirty, apple cider brown, and murky (because I swirled up the yeast). Thick dirty-white head.
Smell: Sour banana and a hint of clove spiciness. "Sour" is predominant.
Taste: Wheat, and a light character that belies its dark, murky appearance. Lemony-fruity that has a hint of green banana to it, and the spiciness is prominent—cloves and peppercorns.
Mouthfeel: Pleasantly crisp and somewhere between light and medium-bodied.
Overall: Not that I’ve had many Dunkel Weisses, but this is decent and tasty… I like it better than the Trader Joe’s version.
