This beer gets a few extra points for its huge long lasting head. Cloudy brown color. Good balanced flavor with an underlying spiciness.

Nice strong/sharp finish of clove I think. Kind of sour, but still sweeter than most beers. Tastes excellent altogether, and definitely worth another try.

It’s funny that this and the Franziskaner Dunkel Weisse are only separated by 0.01 as I drank the 2 side by side and could find very little different. Most noticeably the Hacker is lighter in palate and not as complex. There’s a mild sour fruitiness at first that makes me think of banana milkshake, but then it turns drier in the latter half, much quicker than the Franz version did, certainly more coffeish while there’s also a touch of hop bitterness in the finish.

Good for a dunkel weisse. Very wheaty but there’s an odd spicy flavor in there.

Not as good as the plain ol’ Weiss, but still an excelletn beer, a little clove and maybe ginger flavor, nice creamy head. A little more on the bitter side.

Deep amber in color, enormous frothy, good to the last drop head, beige, tons of lace, nose that is malt, slightly yeasty, earthy. The start is sweet, the top is medium, the finish is hop spicy, tart, dry, slightly acidic, and just plain ’Good’.

Maybe its me but this is the second of the Hacker-Pschorr family that I have tried and they both have been salty. I can’t get past that taste.

Nice spicy aroma consisting of maybe
ginger? Pours up a nice big head which lastes \
throughout the experience. Nice amber cloudy
appearance. Spicy flavor compliments
the aroma. Quite drinkable.

I like this one. It’s one of the few dunke weisse that have tried and I really like to combination
