Brew Review

Beer Review – Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel

I stopped for mixed six at Wegman’s and picked up a bottle of Weyerbacher Slam Dunkel, a Double Dunkelweizen Ale. I had their Double Simcoe, Verboten and Merry Monks’ before so I was reasonably familiar with the brewery and their product line.  Weyerbacher Brewing Company is a microbrewery located in Easton, PA that was founded in 1995 by Dan and Sue Weirback. They produce 8 year round beers, around 10 seasonal beers and an anniversary beer.

From the Weyerbacher site:

 This 7% Double Dunkelweizen is unfiltered and made with over 50% wheat malt along with pale, Munich, and a touch of chocolate to give it the traditional color and flavor. Bitterness is subdued to allow the Weihenstephen yeast to shine through with those traditional notes of banana and clove.

I found the Slam Dunkel to have the following characteristics.

  • Appearance: Dark brown with white foam.
  • Aroma: Sweet malt and wheat with a little hops and clove.
  • Taste: Doughy, fizzy and sweet with a slight malty/yeasty tang.
  • ABV: 7%

This was a very drinkable beer.
