Swing-top bottle... very nice. America should really take a hint from the Germans and bring these back!

Fills lower tiers of my glass with a dark and murky brown thats almost pitch black once it settles in the glass. A large fluffy and dense cream colored head tops it nicely.

Aroma hints at toasted bread and grain upfront. Further exploration reveals the Weizen yeast withs its banana and bubble gum fruitiness and a moderate spice character.

A bit more roasty and toasty than your average Dunkelweizen, but tasty nonetheless. Some malty sweetness as well. Yeast character however plays a dominate role with a healthy dose esters and some clove like spice mixed in.

Mouthfeel is rather light and bubbly but finishes nicely. Overall, Kapuziner is a excellent authentic German weizen but it still leaves you wanting a bit more.

3.44/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours with multiple fingers worth of rich creamy head which settled at about a finger and was present while drinking. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Some light gets in along the edges revealing a dark brown color.

Smell: Balanced wheat and some mossy, earthy hop aromas hit first. A big bready, doughy body follows up the initial nose. Lots of sweet toffee and brown sugar warm up as the beer does.

Taste: Lots of the sweet malt tones picked up in the aroma pop out first in this brew. Decent wheat body carries throughout. Medium bodied fruits ride this one out.

Mouthfeel: Light, smooth carbonation makes this a very easy drinker. Sweet malt tones leave a pleasant sugary texture on the palate.

Overall: Really easy drinking but nothing about this beer really grabs the drinker. Overall malt sweetness really makes itself known throughout.

Slightly different than a Dunkelweizen and not quite a full Schwarzbier, but firmly in the middle. The bottle was one of those cool German flip tops that made a loud pop when I opened it. It poured an opaque dark brown with a full head with great retention. Overall the palate was light and thin for such a dark beer and the flavor was subtle with roasted malt, caramel and a bit of wheat. The flavors became more pronounced and complex as it warmed. This was definitely a lighter beer than I was expecting, but a solid German beer nonetheless and highly drinkable.
