Longwood Brewery – Dunkel Weizen Dark Wheat Ale Review

The Longwood Brewpub Dunkel Weizen is a Dark Wheat Ale. It pours a dark, dark brown which light shines though in a reddish hue. The head is mid-level and settles with a film lining the glass’ perimeter. Smelling this beer the aroma is light and subtle. Notes of nutty chocolate take charge and don’t let anything else sneak through. The taste is quite light. The malt notes come through strong up front and settle into a chocolate, nut filled finish that is still light, easy drinking and not overpowering. The wheat-base does not really show itself as one could easily mistake this for a dark lager style beer. The Dunkel Weisen is a classic style beer and on the light side of things the Longwood does a great job making a highly drinkable, flavourful beer.
