Mit feiner Hefe – obergärige Schwarze Weiße
Brauart/Biergattung: Obergäriges, naturtrübes Vollbier
Die schwarze Variante unserer Premium Weiße. Seine besondere Braukomposition, mit über 50 % Weizenmalz, weiteren wertvollen Spezialmalzen und Röstmalzbier, sowie unserer eigenen, rein gezüchteten, obergärigen Leikeim-Weißbierhefe geben ihm seinen unverwechselbaren Weißbier-Charakter. Aussehen: Dunkelbraun, viel vitaminreiche Hefe, cremig, kompakter Schaum. Im Aroma: Leicht toastig, mit fruchtigen Citrus- und dezenten Bananentönen. Erfrischend, prickelnder Gaumenstreichler. Mild, vollmundig, süffig - mit einer harmonischen Süße.
Ein richtiges Wohlfühlbier für Weißbier-Kenner(innen) – schmeckt nicht nur im Sommer.
Stammwürze: 12,3 % Alkoholgehalt: 5,5 Vol. %

So this was nothing special. Pours a chestnut brown with off white. The aromas are nice. Milk chocolate and banana. However the flavors fall completely flat. Watery.. And whatever sweetness there is fades instantly.

Sampled on the Main just beyond Wertheim. Aromas of bananas and yeast lifts from a dark brown pour with a long lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is slightly sweet with toasted malts, bananas and yeast being the dominate flavors. Medium-light body and soft carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall, well crafted and very enjoyable. Would drink again.

500 ml flip-top bottle bought at Biorganic’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.

Translucent deep brown colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; Explosive three-finger head with crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 3 minutes; Good sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Very fragment aroma of roasted dark malt, with banana, vanilla, caramel, sugar, light toffee, light wheaty tartness, light chocolate, strong yeast, cloves, spices and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of strongly-roasted dark malt, with nuts, strong tart notes, dark chocolates, light caramel, light burnt toffee and toast, yeast, low phenolic, light spices, very light lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Close to medium body. Slick and thick palate; Mouth feel is rich dark malt with strong roastyness and nuts. Wheat is rather less in the mix, tartness is notable but quite low. Very little fruity esters and caramel is notably low. Instead it has rich dark chocolate, and pretty nice shades of burnt toffee and toast. Low clove and spices. Thick to the tongue throughout and I like it!... Hoppiness is light grass in nose, light lemon and thin grass in taste. Bitterness is slightly hoppier than most Dunkelweiss for a mostly malty and roasty low bitter finish; Pretty dry after taste. Rich and roasty to mouth.

Comments: This one is more or less in the same league as Fürstenberg Hefeweizen Dunkel - rustic, very roasty dark malt with fragrant estery aroma, rich roasty and chocolate / toffee taste and catchy light hops. It has found its place as a very decent mid-to-top Dunkelweisse. A nice one for my lazy Sunday lunch!

Erzengel (4967) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2014
Schöne braun-trübe Farbe, neutral-süßlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist neutral-süßlich, ganz leicht malzig-hefig, aber relativ flach. Zum Hauptteil bleibt das Bier schwach, leichte Hefetöne setzen sich zusammen mit einer leichten malzigen Süße durch. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine schwache Gesamtnote mit mild-süßlichen Charakter.
--> Für ein dunkles Weizen etwas ausdruckslos und schwach. Aber vollmundig-süffig.

drjay44 (2866) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
500 ml. swing-top bottle. Pours a thick well retained ivory head, over a slightly hazy, light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is light banana/bubblegum, minimal phenolics, hints of cereal, no hops....taste is light grains, light banana/bubblegum, no clove notes, finishing slightly sweet, with minimal hop bitterness....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds tingle and mild acid. This is a pleasant enough beer, but it is not a very good Dunkelweisen. The clove phenolics are absent, and the banana/bubblegum notes are low. BJCP 6/3/11/4/5

Poutrs cloudy, dark brown with an oatmeal coloured head. Aroma of dark, toasty bread, yeast, wheat. Taste is sweet, dark malt, caramel, bread. Banana, spice. Nice taste...but a little on the weak side.

McTapps (5182) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
Cloudy dark brown colour with steady creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of dark yeast. Taste of light gentle yeast, hops, dark grains, dark bread, dark malt and nuts. Hints of roast and woods. Easy to drink, quite okay one for being a Hefeweizen.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
Endlich mal wieder ein Weizen, das es in sich hat. Blumig, mit leichten Brotaromen und etwas Saeure im Aroma. Frisch von Anfang bis zum Ende. Ein Bier, das man sowohl am Kamin als auch im Biergarten durchaus zischen moechte. Nette Ueberraschun,g.

Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is not much. Maybe a bit of sticky sweetness. Flavor is kinda weak as well. Some dunkle like malts but not much after that. This is kinda all over the place and kinda a mess.
