BJCP 2008 Guideline

German Wheat and Rye Beer - Dunkelweizen

BJCP 15B

BJCP 2008 15B Dunkelweizen style example
15B - German Wheat and Rye Beer / Dunkelweizen

 

IMPRESSION

A moderately dark, spicy, fruity, malty, refreshing wheat-based ale. Reflecting the best yeast and wheat character of a hefeweizen blended with the malty richness of a Munich dunkel.

COMMENTS

The presence of Munich and/or Vienna-type barley malts gives this style a deep, rich barley malt character not found in a hefeweizen. Bottles with yeast are traditionally swirled or gently rolled prior to serving.

EXAMPLES
