Michelob Dunkel Weisse

  

Introduced:

Sept. 8, 2008

Beer Style:

Unfiltered dark wheat ale

Description:

The surprisingly light finish is a characteristic of dark weissebier, a style with roots back to the 1520s, and makes our Dunkel perfect for any season.

Ingredients:

Michelob Dunkel Weisse is brewed with a special Bavarian yeast strain combined with select wheat, caramel and chocolate malts to deliver unmistakable clove and banana tones with a roasted malt palate.

Food Pairings:

Michelob Dunkel Weisse pairs well with barbecued meats, spicy cuisine, traditional German fare, cheeses such as smoked Gouda and sharp cheddar, and a variety of sweet desserts including apple strudel, pecan pie and lemon cake.

Glassware Suggestions:

Serve Michelob Dunkel Weisse in a weizen glass to showcase the beer’s color and lock in the banana and clove aromas.
