Boston Beer Co. offers dark wheat beer.

The Boston Beer Co. has announced it will introduce a new seasonal beer: Samuel Adams Dark Wheat Beer or Dunkelweizen, which will be available in what Boston Beer calls a "fifth season," late spring and early summer.

According to Boston Beer, the beer was first introduced at last fall's Great American Beer Festival, where it won a silver medal. The company said the new beer has a "chocolate, nut-like flavor, resulting from a blend of wheat and barley malts, enhanced by custom-roasted wheat malt."

The brew also boasts Hallertau Mittlefrueh, Tettnag and Saaz hops, and a top-fermenting yeast strain from Germany's Weihenstephan, that Boston Beer said adds a "clove-like" taste.
