500 mL bottle picked up at the Perekrestok; best before 26 June 2014. Hofbrau Munchen is good at all and this particular sort is well. Served chilled not well.

Final Grade: 4.00, overall it is good Dunkel Weizen
Serving type: bottle (which is not good because usual)

The beers produced by Hofbrua tend to have much fame but not the best beers of Bavaria. I usually disappointing. This, without being fantastic, but I found the mediocre, like many of this producer. Style is probably one of my favorite German. Repeat.

The aroma is largely sweet with vanilla and honey along with some wax, clove, and a hint of cocoa. The body is deep copper and fairly hazy with a foamy, off-white head that lasts. The flavor is dominated by spicy clove and stalky bitterness along with light honey, subdued bready/grainy malt, some yeasty sourness, and a light waxy/grainy finish. The carbonation is intense and prickly.

Very crisp and satisfying but with a rather straightforward flavor for the style. It's not at all bad, but it could benefit from greater sweetness, a more notable malt presence, and softer carbonation.
