Dunkelweizen

Discontinued
Alberta, Canada
5% ABV • IBU 18

Here in the Prairies, we never tire of celebrating that we are surrounded by some of the finest wheat and two-row barley in the world. It's not surprising, then, that Big Rock felt irresistibly drawn to producing a beer that would highlight some of the variety and complexity of flavours that can be drawn out of these humble cereal crops. The obvious choice for such a brew is the dunkelweizen, a rich Bavarian style of dark wheat ale that is perfectly suited to bring forth the distinct tastes and aromas of the five malts they selected for this recipe. If you think the name’s a mouthful, wait till you taste the complex flavours of its five distinct malts and two different German hops Pair this beer with sausage, roast chicken and pork, and richer cheeses like gouda.

Repackaged as Wunderbier.
