One of the new 500ml swing-top bottles. Pours black (no way!) with a thick light-beige head that leaves great lacing. Typical weizen character in the aroma, but augmented by a sharp, bitter roastiness that seems quite unusual. Light banana notes. Interesting, but not necessarily bad. Notes of carbon/graphite. Dry, roasty taste with the typical tangy yeast. Really interesting stuff. Medium, well-carbonated body. Though I'm a fan of the regular Kapuziner weisse, this one doesn't quite stand up. Interesting for sure, but not a favorite.

Great beer. It was like a great Schwarzbier but with the added flavors and tickle of a great Weizen. Almost like Monchof Schwarzbier made love to some Vitus and had a healthy offspring. I had it in a glass as always, but it was funmny to read the text on the back which read something to the tune of: "Hefe-weissbier should always be enjoyed from a glass, never the bottle". Looked nice and dark with substantial aromatic head. Carbonation was nice and the drinking was refreshing. Good stuff.

3.44/5  rDev -7.5%
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.
