Dunkelweizen

English Pronunciation: doonn-kel vite-sen

A dark wheat beer. Dunkelweizen is the dark version of the regular golden-yellow Weissbier (Hefeweizen). Dunkel means dark in German (as opposed to Weiss, which means white) and Weizen means wheat. Like a Hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen is made from a mixed mash of wheat and barley malts.  Unlike a Weissbier, a Dunkelweizen can also contain different types of caramelized or roasted malts to give it both color and complexity.
