COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light beer or dark? With Weissbier, it’s all a question of taste! If you prefer a Weissbier with a mild, aromatic flavour, Hofbräu Schwarze Weisse is the right choice for you. This dark variant on Hofbräu Weissbier is refreshment in a deliciously mild form - yeasty and malty, and has got an alcoholic content of 5.1% by volume.

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).

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2009
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.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 13, 2009
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).

anders37 (19545) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber/orange color with a longlasting slightly off-white head. Has a slightly roasted wheat malty strong banana aroma. Sweetish wheat malty banana flavor with some hints of caramel. Has a sweetish wheat malty finish with some roasted hints and some hints of banana in the aftertaste.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - OCT 29, 2009
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.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - OCT 23, 2009
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.

shrubber85 (9140) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle. Chocolate/banana wheat malt aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with small head. Sweet banana, orange, clove, and toffee wheat malt flavor. Nice body. A very nice dunkelweizen.

JoeinDahlem (1378) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2009
Half-liter bottle. Dark, cloudy brown with gold highlights. Ripe banana nose with notes of milk chocolate and caramel. Lightly sweet taste with a subdued, even bitterness and slight bready tang. Lively, medium-bodied. Refreshing for a dark malty wheat beer.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 19, 2009
.5L from bottle @ beer garden in English Gardens, Munich. Dark-brown body, reddish, not a lovely color. Off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of yeast, cloves, ripe bananas. Mouth is lightish, fizzy zip of carbonation, kind of watery after a while. Very refreshing. Flavor of cloves, wheat, lemon, over-ripe something. Decent accompaniment to my giant pretzel amidst a lengthy bike-ride. Extra emphasis on refreshing.
