3.43/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Need to state up front that "expiration date" was August 2009 (about 11 months ago). My bad for not noticing when I purchased it a week ago.

Let it warm a bit, and was an absolute gusher when opened. Immense off-white head, coarsely bubbled at the bottom, and creamy looking on top. Cloudy brownish color the beer itself.

A sweet aroma, a bit of fruit (not really like banana) and malt. Appropriately no hop aroma.

Slightly sweet, with more malt character than a weisse beer yeast character. Not unusual for the style. Flavor overall is a little lifeless, and borderline oxidized tasting (would be consistent with extreme age)

MF is unremarkable. Light to medium body, and moderate to high carbonation. No astringency or warming.

If a fresher sample tastes better than this one, would be a nice, drinkable beer. Only 5% ABV and no rough edges to the flavor profile.

3.35/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

$3 .79/500 mL bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
500 mL bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of cider
Head large (6 cm), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 3 mm layer with various size bubbles
Lacing OK – some large islands stretching from the top of the glass to the surface, various size bubbles
Body medium brown, very muddy
Flavor begins with a kind of mild apple cider taste followed quickly by a malty taste. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

Interesting beer. I’d definitely have another of these.

3.58/5  rDev +3.2%
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This beer is appealing because of its pry off bottle which is highly uncommon is US beers.
Off the nose, it is very sweet, hints of caramelized banana and a strong scent of wheat.
The flavor is rather disappointing, minor sweet after taste, but with highly carbonated mouthfeel.

Overall, a disappointing beer. Overly sweet, yet bitter, which is off putting. Would not buy this beer again, not my preference. But I would encourage everyone to try it

A: The swing top let out a loud pop when the bottle was opened. The beer is very hazy—yellowish brown hues are visible near the edges of the glass and it appears dark reddish brown when viewed from afar. It poured with a two finger high off white head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down. The beer got murkier as I got near the bottom of the bottle and started to resemble apple cider.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bananas and doughy yeast are present in the nose along bits of sweetness.
T: The taste has flavors of bananas along with notes of apples and sweetness plus hints of clove-like spices.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer was quite fruity and yeasty and felt like it could have had more complexity in the taste and a bit more fullness in the body.

0.5l swing-top bottle. Pours murky brown beer with bubbly tan head, transforming into 2-finger foam in a few minutes. Relatively poor aroma: biscuits, raisin, banana. Actually watery taste as if sterling weizen was diluted, apple tartness, metallic tones, dull undertones. Inconsistent low carbonation, mild body. Disappointing experience.

This was an avearage dunkel that I truly wanted to rate higher yet I just couldn't do it. Someone out there might just love it but alasnot me. There are so many better choices. I bet it tastes great in Germany. That's what I also want to think...and I'm sticking with it.

Brown bottle with a swing top - 1pt. 9 fl oz. (500 ml)

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse Dark filled my weizen glass with a brown color producing a 1-finger tan head that left behind hit and miss lacing. The nose is malty, sweet and cola like. The flavor is also dominated by malt that is nutty, of cocoa and raisins. Mouth feel is light-medium [for the style] and is not as smooth, rich or creamy as the better dunkelweizens I have had.

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse Dark is not a bad beer by any means, however, falls short of the better and richer German and American dunkelweizens.
