Gordon Biersch Dunkelweizen

gbdw.jpgPerhaps my least favorite type of beer is wheat beer. Iíve had some that I thought were good, but Iíve been underwhelmed by most that Iíve drank. Theyíve been a little too light and a little too flavorless for my taste. Gordon Beirsch Dunkelweizen is a wheat beer that I can enjoy, because itís a dark beer and itís also unfiltered. As far as beers go, it still on the lighter side, but it has a nice malted flavor that typical wheat beers donít have. I like the fact that itís unfiltered because that means there is more flavor floating around in the bottle. Unfortunately most of the country probably wonít be able to try this tasty beer, as Gordon Biersch beers are only distributed in California, Hawaii, Nevada and Arizona. Also, itís a seasonal brew available only from March to June. So, get some while you can (and also try their Mšrzen, which is very good).

When I'm in the mood for a wheat beer, I crave a Franziskaner with a slice of orange.
