Now that’s a mouthful of a name for a beer. The Hefeweissbier Dunkel ("dark hefeweizen") from the Weihenstephaner brewery in Germany is one of the foremost wheat beers of the world from the world’s oldest brewery.
Appearance: Light copper, hazy. Head foamed up a lot—it’s light tan. Color is actually more brown apple with light copper highlights.
Smell: Phenolic sour in the nose—clovey and fruity. Whole wheat bread.
Taste: Lighter than expected. Doesn’t have the raw wheatiness that a non-dark(?) weiss has—but still wheaty for sure. Sour with a hint of citrus. Fruity—like a light grainy berry.
Mouthfeel: Light, very carbonated. Tangy on the tongue, with residual tang. Very clean.
