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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2002
Amber/brown color with a tall tan head. Aroma of wheat quite evident. Light flavors of licorice, molasses and toffee. Grainy, sour apple like finish. All flavors are a bit muted and somewhat bland. Second tier schwarze weisse.

Hanna (10) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Large foamy off-white head. Dark stoutlike colour. Flowery grassy hoppy aroma. Bitter at first, sweeter after a while. Sweet rich flavour. Smooth and creamy like velvet. Slightly malty. Refreshing. Very nice. Too drunk to enjoy it properly, I’m afraid.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brown, with a very rich, foamy off-white head. I really like the look of this stuff.
Hoppy aroma starts out somewhat acrid, then turns to a typical yeasty sweet.
Sweet and yeasty hefeweizenesque flavor. Fruity. Some mild flowery hops. Very smooth and refreshing. Delicious.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2007
(Bottled) Hazy darkish brown with a small head. Dark-fruity, mildly toffee-wheaty-malty aroma. With dry banana hints. Dry, wheaty flavor with lots of banana esters and some roastiness. Medium-bodied, medium-carbonated, slightly foamy palate. A reasonably nice Dunkelweizen - quite similar to the regular one.

JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Very dark brown color with some sediment. Good wheat aroma, some bubblegum, and just a hint of roasted malt. Flavor is full and sweet. There is a light citrus bite, as well as some banana, and a little bubblegum. This bottle might have been past its prime, but still a good beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
.5 liter bottle. Pours a hazed woody nutty brown with a lasting beige head. Aroma is nutty, toast, mixed between spicy peppery phenolics/clove and also fruity esters banana, green raisin, and even slight green apple- toast, nuts, dough and yeast. Flavor is earthy, leathery, toast, biscuit, fruity esters, caramel, slight mineral ash hint, light banana, and toffee in the end. Dry and earthy with a light dry finish. Ok.

Taste: Super fruity (see above), slightly tart, and just a touch of bitterness. I like it very much. Finish: Very dry and fruity. No bitterness whatsoever. Overall: A very good example. Superb for refreshment.

bartlebier (1480) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2013
50cl bottle, fresh. Not your typical Dunkelweizen, with a near-opaque acajou colour, notes of porter-like roasted malts, yet light mouthfeel, this surprisingly tasty, oxymoronic beer is aptly named. Pear from the yeast, milk chocolate and some char from the malts, cinnemon and pepper spice from well-dosed hops. Interesting beer on all levels, very well and cleanly executed for the notoriously murky & moorish Dunkelweizen style.
