Slam Dunkel was a small batch release in 2007. We had such an overwhelming response that we had to put it in the seasonal rotation. We also decided, as brewers, we couldn't live without drinking this beer every year! This 7% Double Dunkelweizen is unfiltered and made with over 50% wheat malt along with pale, munich, and a touch of chocolate to give it the traditional color and flavor. Bitterness is subdued to allow the Weihenstephen yeast to shine through with those traditional notes of banana and clove. Available in June in bottles and draft. Recipe by Chris Wilson, Head Brewer

    A deep brown tinted amber colored beer with a big frothy textured, light beige head. There's some hang time on this one. Settles eventually to light splotches of film and a thin ringlet left behind. The profile is banana, sweet caramel. A thin body, but smooth. A pretty good representative of the style.

    Pours with a slightly cloudy, amber body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a little banana and some light candy sugar notes. Medium bodied, slightly smooth and a little tingly.

    Bottle: Poured a deep brown color dunkel with a nice foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of banana bread and caramel is very enticing and more enjoyable then I had expected. Taste is a nice mix between some banana ester with lightly sweet caramel and that distinctive German yeast. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no alcohol was apparent. Very well done with loads of character and some very good balance.

    22oz bottle from SL. Pour was nice airy deep mahoganey brown with an off-white tannish colored foamy, airy head. The aroma was roasted caramel-wheat malts, some light spicing activity, handful of light grassy notes. The flavor followed the aroma, bananas were more prominent in the flavor, but certainly not as strong as it could have been. The dark fruits were also tame, only faint bready-yeasty notes. Seemingly earthy bitterness (light overall, notable for the style) in the finish, on the higher side of hop levels for a weizen bock? Actually, I drank this ignorant to style and felt it drank more like a standard dunkel weizen.

    I am looking forward to this one because weizenbocks are, for the most part, rare. The aroma is complex and I am picking up some chocolate, cocoa, dark fruit, and spice and is sweet for the most part as well as malty and bready with some yeast. I also would like to add the aroma is very reminiscient of a dark Belgian strong ale like a dubbel. The appearance is a very dark brown with some extremely dark-burgundy overtones when held to the light but is not penetratable and offers up a nice and full-sized head on top that is fluffy and creamy as well as frothy and hardly discipates (this one has wonderful head retention) and is a light-tan in color with rocky bubbles on the nose. The mouthfeel is full-bodied and very complex with overtones of wheat maltiness and is round with a palate that is thick and damn fine. The flavor is malty, fruity, has spicey esters with an aftertaste that is of cocoa and chocolate with nice yeastiness and has a finish that is creamy, smooth, frothy, and a bit wheaty-like with some alcohol noticeable. Overall, this is a fine brew in my opinion and is very malty but is balanced wonderfully with yeastiness and fruitiness and this is a very nice representation of the style even though I have only had a few weizenbocks...I really liked this product; it is very unique and is a pleasure to experience.

    Dark brown pour, nice pillowy head and lacing. Sweet aroma of banana wheat bread. The flavor was roasty, bananas, a good deal of cloves and wheaty yeastiness. Rich and full and the alcohol flavor complimented this well. I was really liking this. Another good one from Weyerbacher...a brewer who gets not enough love.

    This pours a rich, opaque, cloudy wood-brown with a fine-bubbled beige head. Aroma is rich and wheaty, with a strong hint of lemon even without the obligatory lemon wedge. Flavor is rich, wheaty and yeasty, with a little malt and a "rubbery" undertone. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. This is unlike any beer I have ever had before.

    This dunkel weizen pours a medium brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt, wheat and dark fruit. A medium bodied dunkel. The malts are caramel, dark fruit and banana. Hops are earthy. A fairly sweet Dunkelweizen with lots of banana and brown sugar flavors. Very smooth tasting. Very easy drinking. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
