About Punkless Dunkel Pumpkin Wheat Ale by Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company

You may know this beer by it’s previous name, Punkel Dunkel Pumpkin Wheat Ale. It’s also been called a lot of other names as well: Pumpkin Dunkel, Pumpkinweizen, etc. Whatever you’ve called it in the past, Neshaminy Creek Brewing knows that regardless of what it’s called, this is one of the most popular, if not the most popular seasonal beer they make. When Neshaminy Creek Brewing set out to create what they hoped was a unique pumpkin beer they decided to brew an imperial version of the Dunks Ferry Dunkelweizen, but in an unabashedly American way by adding pumpkin to the mash and your favorite pumpkin pie spices to the kettle. They add dark brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice to the boil as well to pair with the banana esters and spicy clove imparted by the yeast during fermentation. At 8.8% ABV it’s no slouch either. Always released after Labor Day, Punkless Dunkel doesn’t last long as the crisp Autumn nights make way to Winter just around the corner.  Do the seasons even change in Texas?
