2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. From Germany. HHOK blind tasting.
Hazy brown colour with average to big off-white head. Great contrast. Aroma is sweet banana and bread. Flavour is banana, bitterness and carbonation. Slightly watery and thin. Strange combination of Lager (Schwarzbier) and Weisse (Hefeweizen).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a darker reddish brown with a small cream head that leaves a small film after the head leaves. Smell is of roasted malt, caramel, and bread. Taste is the same with notes of banana and nuts. Leave a mild buttery carbonation mouthfeel that’s pretty nice. I think this beer is a little underrated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours orangey-brown with a small creamy head. Aroma is banana, citrus, cloves and caramel, which transfer over to the taste as well. Creamy texture and the lively carbonation makes it very refreshing. Good dunkelweizen.

Horrible for a weizen, for US imports and German biergarten standards. Its grossly over rated, and when people tell me they have HB beer and like it over other German brewers, I laugh. A small village’s micro-brew weizen in Bayrern is much better (if village micro-brews still exist since HB, Spaten, and Warsteiners take over).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Bottle @ Treffpunkt German bar in Nha Trang. Warm ruddy red brown and opaque. Aroma is yeasty but dry and clean with bread, toffee, and chocolate. Smooth palate lacks banana stickiness. Lots of chocolate with a dry finish that has such a pleasant touch. Good body on a well-made quaffable brew...Draft @ Hofbrau Miami Beach...opaque mahogany. Great aroma flavor profile brown bread dough spice nuance fruit. Balanced soft.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown body with a foamy, dense head. Smell is bread and dark malts. Taste is of nougat and toffee; a wee bit sweet but overall a well balanced beer. Nothing great, but a decent and very drinkable dunkel weizen.
