Ale since its a weizen
Mouthfeel: Medium-full to full body. A creamy sensation is typical, as is the warming sensation of substantial alcohol content. The presence of Munich and/or Vienna malts also provide an additional sense of richness and fullness. Moderate to high carbonation. Never hot or solventy.
Overall Impression: A strong, malty, fruity, wheat-based ale combining the best flavors of a dunkelweizen and the rich strength and body of a bock.
Mine missed the strength of a bock but has that creamy wheat laced head and banana and clove from yeast, and plum flavor from malt.
I used Jamil's recipe from BYO that I will try again to improve my efficiency.
Jamil says its the ultimate Halloween beer.
