Slam Dunkel

Today I'm drinking Slam Dunkel, a double dunkelweizen ale brewed by Weyerbacher Brewing Company in Easton, Pennsylvania. The label shows a hammer and fist. Very basic.

Dark red-brown color was unexpected. There were plenty of floaties too. The aroma had a nice spiciness to it along with some muddled fruit and a yeasty quality.

Big banana and hella bubblegum flavors take over the beginning. Sweet and with some spicy clove action. Great body, chewy with a low level of carbonation. The 7% alcohol does stick out as it highlights the fruitiness and helps keep a relatively sweet beer in check.

As the beer warms, yeasty and tangy flavors start to take over the finish. Nice flavors all around. Check it out!
