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.

500 mL bottle pours a cloudy, light brown color with a fluffy tan head that fades quick and leaves a few streaks of lace.

Nose is hazelnuts, mild cocoa, cake batter and bananas foster. Interesting smell, I really dont get a whole lot of cloves or wheat strangely.

Taste shows more wheat than the nose and is crisp and light despite the color. The choco notes come out much more and the yeast is more nutty than clove and banana. Kinda nice for a switch up. I like it. The mouthfeel is nice and sooo easy to drink. Good stuff!

Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a hazy, muddy brown color. A dirty cream colored head sits on top, and holds up well with a hard pour. Minimal lacing. The beer smells sweet, bready, malty, and slightly sour. The taste is a reflection of the smell: sweet bready malts up front, with a lot of banana flavors and various fruit peels. The mouthfeel is fairly light.

Overall, and excellent German brew, this one. I could session this easily.

Pours a cider like brown-amber with nearly no head at all. The bouquet is characterized by Rhone apple and cherries. Belgian yeast are noticed first with the initial pull. A dulled, not sweet, apple cider follows. An astrigent pithiness gets the final say in this average dunkel weisse. Hacker-Pschorr did ok with this one.

A - Wow mine does not look like the picture. Not very clear at all but head is a full inch and pillow like. Color is a deep brown almost brown ale looking beer.

S - Well I am glad that the second and third sniff's reviled less of a lager skunk but it does have a sort of metallic or "hard water" smell to it.

T - Thankfully the hard water taste is not existent, maybe a touch in the finish but it has a good body and mild lager yeasts clashing with dark fruit flavors.

M - Spot on for a dunkel it's medium but smooth.

Overall for a mass produced German beer this one is pretty close to style. Prost!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a glass mug.

A- Pours a rich dark copper with a thick bubbly slightly tanish head. Cloudy only allowing some light penetration. Nice and healthy looking.

S- Hints of spice, slight bubblegum, banana as well as a slight yeasty estheryness. slight caramel/chocolate/candy notes as well.

T- Starts off with a nice sweet candy/ banana start leading into a slightly sweet finish. Slightly spicy near the end. Some dark fruit notes are present. Has a nice complex breadyness to it.

M- Well carbonated with a light mouth feel.

O- Not to impressed at first but after giving it a look over it really is delicious and very drinkable.. Somewhat watery tasting when warm. It tastes much better cold. . Very session-able. Would not necessarily buy again unless I was drinking with someone who only likes wheats.

A: Pours a hazy dark bronze color with a good head that fades to some lacing.

S: Aroma of banana, cloves and some spice and hint of malt sweetness.

T: Taste of mild chocolate sweetness, with some banana and bit of spice. Has a mild bitterness in the background and a dry finish.

F: fairly light body, smooth a slightly creamy and refreshing. very nicely balanced.

O: This is a good example of a Dunkelweizen. A relaxing beer that goes down way too easy. Well worth a try.

Best before 12/2011. Oops.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a 2 inch foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots and streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spice, and some banana aromas. Taste is of wheat, spices, and caramel banana flavors. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good dunkelweizen but I do think this one is past its prime at this point.
