Recipe: OBK Dunkelweizen

A moderately dark, spicy, fruity, malty and refreshing wheat-based ale. This style of ale best reflects the yeast and wheat character of a Hefeweizen, but with the addition of malty richness of a Munich Dunkel. Notes of clove and banana from the yeast phenols and fruity esters, balanced but prominent. The malt character is bready/grainy with hints of vanilla and caramel. Very little hop character. Medium bodied, aided with higher carbonation for a creamy fullness.
