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.

lithilorn (247) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - APR 18, 2010
Medium cloudy brown body and tan head. Sweet malty wheat aroma with banana and cloves. Malty flavor with some bitter. A nice beer to drink, but nothing special.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle from "Sörspecialista", Budapest. Poured a hazy dark brown, the head was medium and remained thinly, carbonation’s fizzy. Smell of banana, cloves and some caramell. (For me a too) forceful crisp start, which disturbed the a drinking, watery mouthfeel. Flavour’s a bit sour and fruity, the aroma was of caramell and hints of roasted malts, citrus hops and cloves. The finish was of a nice spicyness and dry. Refreshes, but for me unfortunately too watery aromas and taste.

ALLOVATE (2334) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
Erupts up the glass on the pour to settle with a billowing off white-pad that lifts like a plume from the rim. Finely misted, the body a copper tinged chestnut in colour with a lot of tight, fine carbonation. Leaves rings of suds as it empties. Mild sherryish note comes through an otherwise wheaty, dusty cocoa and caramelised banana nose. Tangy, slightly sour malty palate with just a shy hint of sweet caramel upfront. Smoky phenols, clove-like in back, gritty, rough grain mid-palate with little in the swallow, finishing clean and crisp. Quite light in body, a little watery when tasted chilled, filling out as it warms. Notes of rust and cola begin to linger on the tongue late as does just a smidgeon of banana. A little too straightforward, but made for easy drinking. (50cL, BB 23/11/11, The Beer Store Morley)

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Colour is a mix between coke and milk. Steady head. Taste of malt coffee, yeast and strawberry milkshake. Quite sweetish, nice medium bitterness.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2003
It seems like all the Staatliches Hofbräuhaus brews are not my taste. Light malty nose here. Amber color, little foamy head. Malty, yeasty - ripe banana taste. Thin - tastes more like a maltbeer.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2003
Not a great German Wheat. Darker than most (almost brown) and less sediment. Frothy head. Nice clove/banana flavor. Spicy finish.

It’s a dark, red/brown coloured brew. Taste is slightly roasted, malt flavour. A bit sweet caramel like taste. Palate is good, but sticky.
