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.

Poured a nice dark coffee color that didn't let much light through, with a nice thick head that dissipated slowly. Taste of Caramel, coffee, chocolate, and slight banana notes. The smell was a little disappointing nothing noticeable to me. Slight aftertaste on palate but nothing bad. I like wheat beers and this one was right up their for me.

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.

A: A deep brown color. Like heavy brewed iced tea. Huge head on this. Absolutely massive, and a bit tannish.

S: Malty at first. There is almost a hint of salt in the aroma. Some Bread like smells as well.

T: A nice bready beer. Grainy and wheat like. Fairly clean, with a subtle, but noticeable noble hop flavor.

M: Medium light in body. The carbonation is fairly high, but it works for the brew. There is a lovely clean feel to this.

D: Very drinkable. Well crafted, and it seems effortless in it's delivery. Not something that is a "wow" but something that is enjoyable, and solidly made.

16.9oz bottle via Christmas gift. Thanks for the opportunity, Kris. Notched best by Mar07.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 3" tan head above the clear dark caramel brew. Head fades down sedately, but still keeps an 1" of height, with hordes of thick, coating lacing. Aroma is clovey spicy wheat. Taste is sweet upfront, then the wheat flavors kick in, with citrus lingering. Mouthfeel seems a bit thin, but is quite smooth, and drinkability is alright as well. Not a bad beer, but not one I'd probably head out to find again.
