Dunkelweiss

Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30° rediscovers hefeweissbiers through a Belgian brewer s lens. Envisioned by our own Matty Smooth Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove and banana notes that give way to a chocolaty warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate.

I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; we ve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly, said brewer Matt Gilliland. Since this is Lips of Faith and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different making a big, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but with added body think of it as a Gran Cru dunkelweiss.
