NEW RELEASE: New Belgium Dunkelweiss

New from New Belgium Brewing is Dunkelweiss , part of NB’s Lips of Faith collection.  This beer has been previously released as a draft only offering.  Dunkelweiss translates to “dark wheat”.  It wouldn’t be a New Belgium offering they didn’t spice things up a bit.  Expect favor.

Commercial Description:
Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30° rediscovers Hefeweiss beers 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 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, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It’ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Grand Cru dunkelweiss.”

Style: Dunkelweizen

Taste Expectations: Clove & banana.  Coriander & spices. Big on the malts with a small wheat palate.

Availability: 22oz bombers. Draft.

9% ABV

  1. Just wondering if the La Terroir would be available in Atlanta, and when. I was thinking that these 2 Lips of Faith beers would be released together. Thanks.

    • Aaron, it was slated for Atlanta. More info to follow. Distributor had ordered it. More to follow

  2. Great, thanks. I see the Dunkelweiss is around town, and on tap at the Porter at least. Looking forward to trying both.

  3. FYI, Green’s on Buford got 1 case of the La Terroir in this morning, and I managed to snag 4 bottles, thanks to a heads up from someone on BA.
