Hacker Pschorr Dark Hefewisen: The brown translucent body proves it’s a dark beer. The head forms with large bubbles and settles into a thin layer. The aroma is true to style, with wheat, malts and citrus notes coming through. I must have not been in the mood for a dark wheat, as the malt flavor seemed too much, and there was a bit of metallic ness to the flavor. A regular Hefe would have been preferred. I have had dark Hefe’s on tap in Munich, and they were to die for. But the Hacker Pschorr from the bottle did not do the trick.

Cloudy auburn with a good head and ok retention. Stifled yeast product, bready toasted malts, big toffee, chocolate undertones in aroma. Taste is those toasted malts with munich malt sweetness and a lot of lighter caramels. Some spicy phenolics, but malt dominates. A little harsh on the carbonation at first, but settles down.

Overall an average, enjoyable beer that just fails to stand out.

Poured from the bottle into a frosty mug.

The color is dark amber, slightly hazy with some slight white head. No lacing.

The smell is a hearty wheat flavor. It feels like the the dark labels temple to ray in. It was just what the doctor ordered. A mix of wet hops and some sweet malts.

The taste i just a problematic mineral vice. It has just the right amount of flavor with some roasted malt and well as a wheaty/fruity flavor to this beer as well.

This beer has a medium body and is pretty carbonated. It has some nice drinkability and is pretty easy on the palate.

I did not like this beer all that much as the flavor was a little off to me. The appearance was nice with a hazy brown color and a good amount of head. Odors of bananas and grains. Flavor profile had some cloves, bananas and a dominant flavor that I could not identify but was not really keen on. I will probably try another bottle from another store to see if it is better, but overall I was a bit disappointed.

This beer poured a nice dark color for a weisse. It had an estery aroma that was dominated by bananas. The flavors in this beer however seemed not to mix well. Strong banana taste with some clove but there was also a roasted barley flavor. It ended with a slight acidic sourness that did not seem to be in place. I am going to try this again and maybe change my review if I find the next bottle better.

The color is a clear but dark gold. Has a thin, dishsoap head that suprisingly sticks around for a bit.

It is a sweet but very pungent dark wheat flavor. Very sour.

The beer may be too old (drank in October, brewed in April). It has a stale, cellared flavor. Very sour and pungent, and not in a pleasant way. Apparently this beer doesn't age very well.

You would think that this beer would be thick, but it is much thinner than expected. The aftertaste is sour and not in the way I think the brewer intended. It has too much of an overwhelming alcohol flavor to be the smooth dunkel-weisse I was hoping for. Apparently it doesn't age very well.

Poured hazy brown, nice thick white head, slowly diminishing to a strong lace. Aroma seemed a little off, some sour smell, and something else that just smelled bad. Flavor was of strong banana, and then some strong sourness in the end, which stuck around on the palate for for too long. I wasn't impressed with this one.

From notes on March 1 06. Sampled in the bottle at King Street Grille in Charleston.

Poured into a frosted glass from a 12oz bottle. Head that forms leaves quickly and leaves no lacing or any signs of its presence. Beer is a chill hazed, dark, burnt orange color. Very little carbonation.

Not a whole lot in the aroma department. Quite fruity but pretty much devoid of any other aromas. Citrusy and lemony with orange rinds in the aroma.

For some reason, the immediate flavor that I noticed was sort of a ballpark hotdog with spicy mustard flavor. I know that sounds weird but that is what I tasted. Also tasted some bubble gums. Fruity as well. Hints of yeast. Hotdog was a bit offputting but the overall taste was pleasant.

Carbonation was pretty strong. Soda like in carbonation. I didnt like that. Almost tastes like a Dr Pepper. Fair drinkability. Too many of these beers and bloatiness will take effect.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a big giant head. The smell was sour and sweet. The beer cloudy. The beer tasted rotten sour. If you like sour rotten beer the by all means drink this. Beer should not be sour I don't care which country likes it makes it or loves it. It is just wrong.

If this stuff wasn't crafted in 1516 by Martin Luther himself (I'm lying) foretelling the birth and brilliance of Richard Wagner (aka the white Redd Foxx)(Again I'm lying.) I'd say it could pass for a jailhouse beer of bread, water and sugar sifted through a sweaty t-shirt. Not that it's a terribly crafted beer but it tastes like Kroger Wheat Bread liquified into a weak cider and then thickened with whole milk. Very malty and creamy but a copper dark instead of the midnite brown I prefer whilst drinking in the hot flames of hell (In fact if I was standing on Satan's shoulders with my skin peeling off I'd drink a schwarzbier.)(Not lying).
