Dunkel BuckDunkel Weizenbock • 6.8% • Wild Oats No. 10
Beau’s Dunkel Buck is brewed in the Dunkel Weizenbock style – a strong, dark version of a traditional Bavarian wheat beer.
History & Style
Weizen is a variety of German wheat beer – wheat is the predominant grain in the Dunkel Buck recipe.The term “bock” indicates that is was brewed higher in alcohol than a standard interpretation of the weizen style. In a “dunkel” weizenbock the addition of a variety of darker malts produces a beer with rich amber and brown hues.
This cloudy, dark and unfiltered wheat beer displays intriguing clove and banana aromas. The flavours follow, while adding in a chocolate and mocha undercurrent. The beer finishes dry with a slightly tart spicyness, and the alcohol is moderately warming.
