This is from the 2017 Beer Camp Across the World pack from Sierra Nevada brewing. This year they joined with brewers not just all over the United States, as in past years, but from around the world as well. This 5.7% ABV dunkel weizen, or dark wheat beer, was brewed in collaboration with the Ayinger brewery of Germany.
The beer pours a hazy medium brown. There is an inch of light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, caramel, yeast esters, banana and clove. The taste follows the aromas, sweet, but with a certain fruity tartness as well. The taste is rich, pastry like. Despite the sweetness the finish is mostly dry, lightly bitter. The beer drinks smooth, with fine and soft carbonation. This is a fine example of the style.
