Weisse Dark – Dark Wheat (5.3%) - Hacker-Pschorr
App: Pours dark amber to copper brown with a very nice two finger beige head that settles quickly, leaving a lot of high, stringy lacing. Overall retains pretty well, leaving a constant quarter inch head all the way down the glass.
Smell: Strong weisse yeast coming through, with hints of persimmon, banana, and clove. Malt body is pretty noticeable with some biscuit-like notes and hints of sweeter caramel malt. Some volatile phenols with a deep breath.
Taste: Fairly mild in flavor overall. Not nearly as pronounced in its esters as many lighter wheats. Flavors are much less pronounced as suggested by aroma. Slight hints of bread like wheatiness, as well as some sweet banana/clove flavors that are common to style. Malt and hops flavors are more up front in this style, with malts adding more caramelized and rich flavors. Hops come through in that this beer doesn't have the lingering sweetness of a lot of wheats.
Mouth: A little thin on body, though not watery. Carbonation is medium-high, but not stinging.
Home tasting, 11.2oz bottle into Snifter. 1/28/14.

Sampling right now on 3/7/14. Comes in a 330ml (11.2 oz.) bottle. Bottle chiled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a tulip glass.
Pours a dark copper-amber in color with a 2-finger off-white foamy head that settles along the top and sides. LOTS of sticky lacing is seen. The aroma is of yeast, caramel malts, wheat with a hint of spice. The taste is about the same with a good mild flavor that goes down very easy with a sweet finish. No bitter aftertaste. A super good brew!
