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.

Actually, in spite of the dirty flooded Danube water appearance, this is a damn nice beer. Aromas are quite herbal and spicy, with a lot more than cloves. Flavour of caramel, a touch of banana bubble gum, cloves and a broader range of spices - perhaps allspice, I guess. Nice and sweet, not cloying it is well blended, round, on the palate and with a little dry finish. Looks bad, but tastes good.

bottle from mein-biershop. Hazy deep brown colour, mid-sized creamy beige head. Fruity and wheaty with hints of chocolate and caramel, and perhaps some coffee.

Murky brown orange medium body not a lot of head at least on tap where I had it. Aroma of banana and wheat. A nice sweet banana bread flavour. Enjoyable.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Drukket på RV124 4 Jan 14. Dyp brun. Høyt skum som flater ut etter noen minutter. Aroma av malt med en anelse sitron. Smaken anonym. Litt sitrus. Identitetsløs - men den blir ikke for søt. Passet bra som matøl.

Murky hazy brown beer with an off white big head. Aroma has banana, caramel and smoked malts. Flavor has banana, yeast and wheat. More dry than sweet. Finishes with a short bite of bitterness and a pretty long peppery hefeweizen aftertaste. Palate is thin with quite heavy carbonation.

kustie (117) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Malty wheat aroma with some hints of sweet fruits. The beer is dark but not completly black. Malty wheatness continues with the taste. Not a specialty but ok dark weissbier.

Douberd (2092) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, into a weizen, ABV 5.1% Light brown colour on the body, a bit hazy. Two fingers of tan head, thick, with very good retention. Light lacing left on the glass. Aroma of wheat, ripe bananas, soap, light chocolate notes. Mildly sweet taste with wheat, metallic notes, yeast, again some milky chocolate on the finish. Nice grassy bitterness on the aftertaste though. Medium thin body, average carbonation. Overall okay beer, decent.
