“DOONG-kel-VYT-zen” is the dark version of the traditional cloudy wheat beer of Bavaria. “Dunkel” means dark and “weizen” means wheat in German. With at least 50% wheat malt, it has a very different flavour to barley based beers. But it’s the unique yeast that gives it a cloudy appearance and unusual flavours of banana, bubblegum, clove and coriander. The yeast is top-fermenting at ale (warm) temperatures but the results must be lagered (cold conditioned) for best results. Dunkelweizens normally have low bitterness, high carbonation and a richer taste than their cousin Hefeweizen.
