Badonka-Dunkel

 
ABV: 
7.0
IBU: 
20
Availability: 
Limited, Draft Only
Original Release Date: 
05/2012

Badonka-Dunkel is a full bodied Dunkelweizen brewed with organic raw Ecuadorian cocoa butter, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, and vanilla beans.  Dunkelweizen is a “dark” version of German-style hefeweizen.  The cocoa butter was added in the mash with the wheat and barley while the Cocoa nibs, powder, and vanilla beans were added in the kettle.  This light mahogany colored brew was fermented with a blend of Bavarian wheat and ale yeasts, leaving a mild clove and banana character.  The clove phenols and banana esters are produced by the yeast during fermentation and are a classic characteristic of German-style wheat beers.  It has a velvety soft sweetness with a fruity spicey middle and bready malt finish.

Badonka-Dunkel goes on tap May 8, 2012 and will be available until it is gone. Due to limited availability, our Brewpub Exclusive beers are not available in growlers.
