look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A- 3.5 Muddy, hazy brown in color. There's a huge frothy tan head on the pour and it settles to a half finger throughout. The lacing is a little spotty and slippery.

S- 4 Right up front in the nose is a combo of semi-sweet caramel and hops. There's a bit of wheat present as well. It is a good blended aroma.

T- 3.5 There's a malt sweetness that is tempered by a wheat and grain-like finish. Unfortunately there's a metallic taste in this one common to many sips. The brew doesn't really have any bold flavors.

M- 3.5 Despite its monster head on the pour this actually feels under-carbonated. It's light in body and kind of watery.

D- 3.5 Not a bad brew by any means, but not all that exciting either. I'm a fan of dark wheats, so I had my hopes up for this one. It has some good things going on but isn't very complex. It's light and would be easy enough to drink a few, though I don't see myself wanting more than the big single. (935 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - This is a foam monster of course with a nice, tanned head and a thick, hearty brown body.

Smell - The malts are really nice here at the nose and the light yeast compliment is enough to get a thumbs up from me. There's kind of a stale character here though that keeps me from wanting to dive right in.

Taste - Yeah this really doesn't produce at the taste. The wheat totally wimped out and the yeast is OK but just very light. There's no bready character to this at all and the finish just falls right off the table.

Mouthfeel - This is bigger than light-bodied but not medium and the carbonation is cheap and fizzy like an Alka-Seltzer.

Sinkability - I really enjoyed their Helles Lager but this completely missed the mark. (740 characters)

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an amber color with a huge white head. The aroma is a lot of toffee and caramel malts with some wheat, orange and earthy hops characteristics. The flavor is wheat with a lot of toffee. I also get some citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (309 characters)

L: Pours brilliant chestnut under a persistent and clingy 1” off white foam collar.
S: Light banana aromas with a little fruit bread.
T: Moderate malt flavors of chocolate and caramel blend with banana with a mild hop accent on the finish.
F: Medium body and medium high carbonation.
O: Not as malty as it looks but easy to drink and refreshing. (352 characters)

Definitely more so in the dunkel weisse vein than a new style called a Schwarze Weisse. No where near black in appearance a slightly clouded amber chestnut brown with a bright white head forming thick with soft carbonation rolling with tightly packed bubbles. Lacing fares well and sticks on the edges of the glass in sporadic patterns. Aroma has a slight nutty tobacco herbal quality with fruity banan bread notes as well slightly spicy with clove and some extra estery goodness follows. Flavor wise this one deals slightly sour tart edge with the banana and clove mild roasty and nutty finish a pretty nice mix and definitely easy drinkin' version of the style. Mouthfeel is light bodied especially for a darker weisse beer, but carbonation is soft and delicate yet carries the beer extremely well. Drinkability overall is pretty effortless and carefree the only thing slowing down my consumption of this version of the style would be the price per bottle compared to buying a case of Franzy or Paulaner examples. Solid and refreshing beer that I'm sure I'll try out again in the future. (1,089 characters)

(Served in a nonic)
A- This beer has a clean but dense dark brown body with a sea of microbubbles supporting a bubble cob web of a head.
S- The toasted brown bread aroma has a pretty clean finish. T- The yeasty flavor and clove have a softer banana estery hint and a slight tartness in the dry finish.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a pretty fizzy finish that is almost bitey. There is no alcohol heat noticed.
D- The fizz really oppresses the flavors and there isn't much depth to it but it does have some of the classic hefe characters underneath. (569 characters)

Pours a cloudy medium brown with lots of haze visible as I hold the glass near a light. Very little head that dissapears quickly. The beer tastes slightly of wheat malt with some caramel like character. The flavor is very straight forward. Just malted wheat with very little hop presence or any other flavors. (309 characters)

This beer is an opaque medium-dark brown, clouded with just a bit of sediment. It forms a big light brown head that fades after some time and leaves little spotty lacing just here and there. Better lacing and retention would make for a good appearance, but it's above average nonetheless.
The nose offers something interesting, perhaps the mingling of particular dark grains with the malts used as well as the wheat giving it something unique to me; it's something reminiscent of, but not quite, a grain like rye, and I'm imagining a ball of dough that will bake into a cross between rye and sourdough loaf. There's a it of yeast with a ghost of dark fruits and perhaps clove. This is a nice aroma that could use more strength.
The same could be said of the flavor. There's a bit of peppery spiciness riding a light herbal hops bitterness, but this seems like an under-malted beer to me. Wheat and the grains come through, but it really comes off more as herbal and tangy than anything else.
An initial smoothness rides together with a crisp nip up front. It's pretty thin, though not heinously so. There's enough going on that it's interesting, but not particularly so. (1,170 characters)

Pours a dark brown, opaque body with thick, fluffy head that fills the Schneider Weizen Edle-Weisse glass (and then some)...malt and yeast esters float clove, banana and vanilla--quite a tantalizing combination, clear and crisp... thin, slightly effervescent in the mouth; the weakness may be in due part to its age (drink by 12/07?)... smooth with only a bit of back bite... the sightest sediment tickles with a soft acidic presence... the malt and yeast explosion simmers quickly, and what promises by look and smell to be a strong, thirst-quenching palate pleasure turns out only half right: smooth and easy drinking, yes, but the weight that would be the dunkel seems to have been misplaced... (697 characters)

16.9oz flip-top bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours a dark brownish color with a nice off-white head that possesses excellent retention and lacing. The aroma is wheat with some banana and clove and a bit of yeastiness. The taste is a nice dose of wheat and malt with some spices and a yeasty finish. Overall, Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse is a solid Dunkelweizen that is perfect for a hot summer day. Recommended. (415 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured a nice creamy dark brown with a big fluffy brown head.

The smell is very light with the classic banana nut bread German hefe smell, just on the thin side with a bit of smoke.

The taste is very light with just a touch of dark malts some light yeasty flavor with banana, smoke, and some sweetness.

The mouthfeel is light and watery, not much substance.

A very watered down Dunkel, I would skip this in the future. (422 characters)

Pouring this into a glass, I thought I had grabbed a coke by mistake. Body looks like a hazy cola and the head is very fizzy. Definitely get your standard banana and clove off the nose, along with faint nutmeg and bread undertones. Lots of banana and hearty spice qualities on the palate with a faint caramel and light tartness up front. The fizz of the carbonation is pretty overwhelming here and settles down to a very slight body. Overall, this one lacks the depth of flavors that is somewhat common to the style accompanied by a very thin mouthfeel. (553 characters)

Well . . .

I feel really guilty about giving this beer high marks. After all, rather than being a 'dunkel Weizen' it is a Schwarz Weisse with a red background . . . For those of you who don't know, the colours of the Nazi regime were Black (Schwarz) White (Weiss) Red (Rot), in that particular order, the order you are likely to percieve them on the bottle. God, I really, really, really sincerely hope that this was an accident. Really I do.

As for the beer itself, at first it pours a brilliant dark, burgundy-brown, a rich colour that is actually made both brighter and lighter by the addition of yeast. And the head and head retention . . . can't be beat!

It smells subtle. I'm a little tired of ester-bombs, so I welcomed its subdued notes of banana and clove. Upon first sip, I marveled at how the malt really managed to dominate this beer (as it ought) while the banana/clove tastes play a (delightful!) complimentary role.

The mouthfeel is thick and rich, nice and creamy with just the right amount of bubbly.

Drinkability? Wonderful! Wonderous!

I like this beer because it captures all that is good about Weizens, without being over-the-top about it. Man, I would be really bummed to learn these guys are fascists. They make a killer beer. (1,267 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a .5L bottle to a big hefe Glass, the liquid is a dark cloudy brown with good carbonation. The head is almost 3 fingers, brown an leaves little lace.

The smell is great like toasted and spiced bananas, just great.

The taste drops just a bit some bananas, light toast and mild spice, Maybe the spice just is't quite right. But all in all a very good tasting brew.

The mouthfeel could have a bit mow zing and body but still good.

The drinkability is nice I would buy this again.

BBD: 06/2010

Made sure to pull this from the cooler and checked the date before buying. Poured fairly cold into a weizen glass. Three fingers of foam at first, that settled to a sturdy skim that held pretty well.

Dull aroma of musty wet stone, not really what I was expecting. Sort of oxidized, husky and wheaty. No clove, banana, or any typical Hefe aroma. A weird cidery trace that reminds me of an off bottle of Moonglow I had once.

Flavor is a little better after it sits for a little while. Papery and oxidized somewhat, thin and bland. Something vaguely like apple cider and nutmeg. Aftertaste is dull and flaccid. The hollowness makes me think it's past it's prime, though the label says it has 6 months on it. The body is ok, it feels like a weizen, just without any flavor. Slowly working on finishing this, but wouldn't drink it again. (850 characters)

A: A deep brown color. Like heavy brewed iced tea. Huge head on this. Absolutely massive, and a bit tannish.

S: Malty at first. There is almost a hint of salt in the aroma. Some Bread like smells as well.

T: A nice bready beer. Grainy and wheat like. Fairly clean, with a subtle, but noticeable noble hop flavor.

M: Medium light in body. The carbonation is fairly high, but it works for the brew. There is a lovely clean feel to this.

D: Very drinkable. Well crafted, and it seems effortless in it's delivery. Not something that is a "wow" but something that is enjoyable, and solidly made. (597 characters)

1/2 ltr fliptop from Market Limone in Nampa sometime last week.... shared with my work buddy Matt.. Matt loves a good German Wheat.. but he wasn't too hip on this one or the last... I am! Label shows best by 12/8.

Poured into my smaller weizen glass.. 3 finger head drops back leaving spotty lacing.. atop a slightly hazy dark chestnut brew.

Aroma is less than many dark weizens.. but it is still there and out front.. clove and bananas with a slight caramel component..

Flavor is very fresh!! Banana milkshake.. spicy clove finish with some lite caramel sweetness to be the big bow that ties it all together.. carbonation is muted.. but that helps the body.. Rich as it warms.. very nice.

I am getting out of this review early because I want to go enjoy the last half of my glass and I need to move the sprinklers.. :-)

Overall.. pretty good.. very good.. Expensive.. but I am really glad I had a chance to try it. (922 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an Euler stange. Pours a slightly hazy, medium-dark mahogany amber with a fine three finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of mildy sweet caramel malt, wheat, clove, light cola, spicy. Flavor of mild wheat, hints of caramel, nuts, toasted malt; finishes dry and bland with residual light wheat and clove. Light bodied. A nice smelling, but ultimately underwhelming weizen beer. Really quite a nice presention, and the flavor is fine, but it is very mild and unassuming. Meh. (516 characters)
