3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown/black with a dense, spongey, off white/light gray head. Nose of wheat and toasted grains, subtle chocolate and clove. Same flavors. Medium body is bit more bubbly than balanced. Would pair excellent with bratwurst or polish sausage. Solid brew.

Wheaty banana in aroma. head isn’t real good. Taste is pretty smooth and not too wheaty at first, but there isn’t much there either. Simple, okay, but too much wheat in the end.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a dark almost black brown with a small bubbly tan head. The aroma is very nice typical hefe nose of banana, wheat, honey, cinnamon, citrus hops. The taste starts malty on the palate with a slight caramel sweetness followed by a cinnamon, pepper, spicy citrus hop bite. Finishing light on the palate, soft and bready in the finish....fantastic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 1pt.9oz. euro brown bottle with a coded lot/packaged number on the back label. Made a good appearance, poured a murky dark brown with a fluffy, bubbly topped pale tannish white head that settled into a thin fluffy, skim-like lacing with a little clinging, moderate carbonation overall. Had a dark, roasted nutty wheat malty nose with a subtle clove and banana in the background. A crisp, smooth light-ish medium bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Big nutty and roasted wheat malt taste upfront, followed by light clove and soft banana, mildly sweet and a dry nutty banana bready finish.
I enjoyed this Schwarz-Weizen from Kapuziner, balanced and tasty, well worth trying.

The aroma has notes of bread and roasted bananas. The pour is black with reddish hints and a beige head. The flavor is dominated by a malt taste that finishes slighlty carbonated tingle on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick and creamy beige head on a deep, dark ruddy brown body. Aroma of cocoa, roasted nuts, warm bread, and a note of cooked bananas. Dark malty flavor with bread crust and cola notes plus lightly bitter roast. First impression is medium sweet, but turns to fairly dry in the finish. Full-flavored, but the palate is dry and medium-thin. A very enjoyable dunkelweizen.
