On October 10th, Riggs Beer Company will release October's seasonal: Dunkelweizen
Riggs Dunkelweizen has a distinct advantage over other dark beers. Just in time for brew day, we had our local maltster custom roast some Riggs-grown wheat. The use of freshly roasted wheat gives this beer a truly unique fresh roast character.
This year's Dunkelweizen has an incredibly smooth "roasty" aroma and flavor up front. Its medium body carries nutty and cocoa flavors nicely. As is typical in wheat beers, Riggs Dunkelweizen has a noticeably "clovey" finish and virtually no hop flavor.
