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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Nice three finger head on the pour; a dark burnt orange color flirting with brown and red depending on the lighting. Bubbling at the surface following the slow subsiding of the head. Cloudy like a good Dunkleweizen should be.

S - like the Hefeweizen, the aroma of this Weissbier is by no means strong, although the smell that does arise is very good. A nice wheaty smell with citrus overtones and a hint of malt; regrettable that the smell is not slightly stronger.

T - the one downside is the lack of heaviness which should be expected from a good dunkelweizen bier; a thicker consistency would do wonders here. That being said, the flavor is much more telling than the smell. Definitely a malty taste with an overtone of banana and citrus and undertones of malt and a wheat taste. Like the Hefeweizen by HP, the fruit flavor is strong and, at times, may flirt with being too strong at the sacrifice of the hops. Still a very enjoyable taste and like many wheat beers by HP consistently good to the last drop.

Mouthfeel: good carbonation levels; a nice tingle; could use a little more body to the beer but good enough where it would not detach from your enjoyment.

O - To be honest, I would love to give this beer closer to a 4 than a 3.5; it really is a smooth and enjoyable beer, but it lacks the intricacy and higher complexity a 4+ beer deserves. An enjoyable and present beer, but by no means a powerhouse.

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.
