look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into a glass

A: Ruby red when held to the light; very dark in the glass. Off-white head that starts big and rocky with modest dissipation and almost no lacing.

S: Fruity sweet malts, dark fruits. Not so heavy on the phenolics (cloves).

T: Banana and cloves. Perhaps some vanilla notes. More prominent are the darker fruits like plum and raisin. A not-quite-cloying-but-almost-so sweetness. Good malty richness. The after-taste is of tobacco smoke residue on the back of the tongue.

M: Definitely on the lighter side of body. A higher carbonation than most beers lead to a fluffy mouthfeel. A dry finish.

Notes: The mouthfeel changes noticeably if the yeast pellet is agitated. While some may find the tobacco-y after taste off-putting, I enjoyed it as the memory of a good cigar. (And luckily, the flavor doesn't last that long.) This is probably one of my favorite beers, even if it has a milder body than the classification would suggest. The simple complexity is nice.

$2.99 for a 500ml bottle. 5% ABV. "Use before 12/07". Pours out to a slightly cloudy very dark brown, much darker than most dunkelweizen's I've had. There is a very fine yet heavily cemented swatch of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Forms a tall, very soapy looking, slightly off-white head with excellent retention and solid sheets of lacing. Carbonation is medium-strong. The aroma is really nice...this is quite different than most DW's as it has a Unibroue-type nose to it, redolant with apples, pears, and alot of mango. Cleanly fermented with a wonderful nose. Mouthfeel is very spritzy, exploding on the tongue in an effervescent flurry. Lightbodied. The taste begins with the mangos, pears, and apples. There is a mild nutty sweetness imparted by the slight addition of darker grains. In the middle, there is a brief metallic note, followed by a brisk seltzer acidity from the carbonation. The aftertaste is a little herbal and woody. At this point, I swirled and added the yeast. Now it looks like swamp water. The metallic note is now much more noticeable, and there is an odd waxiness in the aftertaste. I think this is a DW that is better without the yeast.

Hrmmmm. Quite an interesting beer here. It's not amazing, but quite good. Considering the cost, I think there are much better and cheaper alternatives, but the benchmark for this category in my book is Franziskaner.

found @ oak tree buy rite, edison nj

eyes...
a schwarze weiss.. kind of like a black hockey player, not something you see everyday. this flip top pops just like their hefe but thankfully doesn't explode out of the top of the bottle like that one. still, the carbonation is very active. the head is identical to the heffe (big, white, soapy looking).. and acts much the same (dissapates at a good clip, good lacing). nice dark brown hue and light does pass through, some ruby highlights throughout, no noticiable carbonation. it looks solid but not great.

nose...
oh my yum... some nice smoke notes, dark roasted coffee and chocolate, toasted malts are the star, this is straightforward but very upfront.. great smell here.

taste etc...
like a good schwarze this looks heavy but frinks light to medium.. this almost reminds me of a weizenbock, this has the tell tale bannana tones but the roasted flavor rounds it out to a new level.. man this is tasty! the carbonation is prickly but smooth, when the second half of the bottle is dumped in the clarity goes down and a slight lemony flavor from the yeast enters the fray making this a really interesting beer. I could drink this all day.

verdict?
this has everything I personally like ina beer:
a) great drinkability
b) lots of interesting flavors
c) not too gassy
d) lots of roast/toast flavors

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.

Ah. The real deal from Germany. This is a great style,done well. As I like, this beer has a very interesting aroma. Fruity, pungent. But the taste is more reserved. The after taste comes back to where the aroma is.

All in all, a very drinkable, quality experience. The brew is quite mirky looking and the lacing peels right down the glass (does not stick).

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.

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.

Prosit, MK

Gorgeous cloudy brown color on the pour with a decent head and minimal lace. delicious taste with a wheaty-appeal to it. Mouthfeel is perfect, very clean and refreshing with no bitter or poor aftertaste. Highly drinkable beer, and if it were not for the price, this would be a perfect session beer

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.

This beer was inhabiting the slot on the shelf usually reserved for another beer that I was looking for so it caught my attention and I gave it a shot. The POP that was released upon opening scared the hell out of my wife and made my youngest kid cry!!! I wasn't expecting that, or the volcanic eruption that followed!!!

As is typical with Hefeweizen this beer has high carbonation, but this one has clearly taken top honors in that department. It took me about 3-4 minutes to get it into the glass. The head was enormous with large, irregular, soapy bubbles. Although there was not a lot of yeast sediment present in the bottle, the beautiful flavor and aroma of Bavarian yeast shine through regardless.

Ranks as a top 5 in my Dunkelweizen list.

Appearance- Light brown with a light head that doesn't last more than a minute. Cloudy as I expected.
Smell- Hints of wheat, toffee, and a subtle scent of the esters which seems to have notes of some banana and cloves.
Taste- Very much like it smells with wheat, a hint of toffee maybe also some raisins. Again the esters are subtle notes of banana. A light bitterness that is expected with this style.
Mouthfeel- It is lightly carbonated, lighter than I expected which makes it very smooth. Light to moderate mouthfeel.
Drinkability- It is lighter and easier to drink. This beer goes down easily but seems to stay on the lighter side of carbonation and body.

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

picked up for the hell of it as i needed a swingtop for a little experiment and this was 2.99 and i had not tried it. poured into a nonic on 1.14.10.

decent pour, nothing crazy with a dark amber, hazelnut color and a nice head that faded kinda quickly on me before i got to take a whiff of it. interesting aroma as i get roasted malts, light hops, touches of banana and clove, grasses and a touch of smoke, which all carries over into the flavor. nice balance here with tons of malts and a light fruit that keeps it all together quite well i have to admit. lots of grass and touches of banana and cereal grains seem to keep it going quite nicely. really cool little finish which is light and dry but pops a touch of brown sugar out of no where.

a touch unique for the style and I really liked it. would not mind doing this one again any day.

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.

The Color is an amazingly dark amber color. not very see through at all. Very fizzy and an amazing german style head.
It has a nice vanilla taste to it. I'm getting a little bit of Banana as well. Lite toasted malts. little to no hop taste. It is very pleasant to drink.

Pours a clear red with hints of brown throughout. A HUGE head. The cap nearly exploded off the bottle, not unlike a bottle of champagne being uncorked. A glass full of foam was the result. Think root beer poured over ice cream and you'll get the idea.
Smell is malt, wheat, dark fruit, rich, yeast and a hint of alcohol.
Taste is exactly the same. A very nice thing in my book.
Sharp effervescence, medium heavy body, slightly warming. A very good beer indeed once the head drops.

Pours a thick hazy brown, with a nice tan head. Looks good. Nose is wheat with sweet bananas and a hint of spicy cloves and maybe some nutmeg. Very nice! Taste is not quite as exciting, but still good. It's a basic wheat/malt balance, with not much sweetness or spiciness. Mouthfeel is tangy and bubbly like a hefe. Drinkability is good on this one.

I meant to save this beer to drink later in the week, but I hit it just the right way when putting away my groceries to pop the cap.

Bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A- A huge tan head erupted with even a gentle pour. It was initially a clear brown color before a swirl of the bottle and the addition of the yeast made for a murky brown brew with plenty of carbonation.

S- The balance between the malts and yeast characteristics made for a banana bread aroma. In the beginning the yeast scent was so pronounced I was hoping I didn't get an infected bottle.

T- A nice wheat flavor with a hint of banana and spice, again, made this beer taste something like liquid banana bread.

M- It had a solid chewy feel.

D- It was a very drinkable, full-bodied beer.

Overall- A good representation of the style. It's a nice cooler weather alternative to the hefes I enjoy during the summer months.

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...

i've never had this one, figured i'd give it a shot, BB date is 12/08 & says it must be stored under 50*, must be fresh, it was on a shelf ; pours a light orange-brown color w/ a huge light tan head which lasted forever in spite of my delicate pour leaving loads of pinhole lacing in my weizen glass ; a bit of a light smell, but good nonetheless w/ the classic banana and clove aroma sticking out the most, some bready malt aroma as well as a bit of coriander ; an interesting flavor, slightly tart, more malty than fruity, an almost smokey quality in the malt profile, w/ faint caramel notes, more banana and coriander at the finish w/ something i can't put my finger on lingering( dark fruit ?) ; light-bodied w/ lots of co2, the flavor hangs in just enough ; i like this beer, def. a drinkable one too....

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.

Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse poured caramel in color. The body was clear and topped by a very tall white head. The aroma contained cloves, cinnamon, and bananas. Flavor had sweet and spicy with cloves being the most noticed. Body was medium-light with fairly high carbonation.

I had visions of Captain Morgan spiced rum while drinking this. It wasn't sickly sweet, but still it had some comparable flavors.

500 ml swing-top bottle. It has a freshness label - no month notched though, and both years of 08 and 09 notched - odd that (multiple choice?) - poured into a weizen glass:

Pours a huge tan head over a cloudy orangeish brown. The head settles to a rocky/foamy lasting cover.

The smell is of assertive banana/clove with a wheat tang and caramel and earthy notes.

The taste does not live up to the expectations of the nose. It is spicy (clove) earthy, caramelish but with a touch of a metallic tinge. Banana more subdued than in the nose. Not quite as sweet and dark as expected. Finishes semi-dry.

Initial effervescence turns swishy and watery. Smooth, thirst-quenching, but thin with awkward carbonation.

Drinkable - a bit bitterish for style, which would be fine, but the expected malt character seems restrained for a dunkel. All-in-all it becomes less impressive down the line, but in the end is still a nice dunkelweisse (don't really get the "schwarze" part - they should call it "dunkelweisse, as that's what it is - dark but not black). Anyway, certainly worth trying!

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.

A: Cloudy brown body, yeast floats slowly to the bottom of the glass. Head is loose, lacing is alright.

S: Nice hefe smell, rather powerful, a little sweet.

T: Some hefe flavor, slight caramel flavor, but overall the beer is strangely acidic making it a bit off putting.

M: Feels thin and the bubbles are large.

D: Pretty drinkable, the flavors aren't huge so its hard to hate.

Overall not too impressed, but its drinkable.

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.
