2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is near spot on for a Dunkelweizen with coriander, bananas, sour wheat malt, and yeast. The appearance is medium red/brown with a good three finger head that didn’t last long enough. The flavor is like the aroma with a strong sour note up front. This is really the only bad thing about it but sadly it really hurts it. The palate is somewhat thin. Overall I am a little disappointed by this one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
swing top bottle - Pours dark brown with a medium-sized fizzy head. The aroma is yeasty with a touch of citrus. The flavor has the wheat, yeast, and not much else. It has a light flavor for a "dark" style and is a little thin. The palate is lively and the finish smooth. There’s just not much going on here.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the ceramic-lidded swing top bottle, consumed right after the Weiss. this poured with a less-pronounced head, looking more like a regular dunkel bier than dunkelweiss. The aroma, too, is much more malty than yeasty ... with a big sweet cookieness to it. Likewise the flavor was like a sweet Girl Scout treat ... very sugary. Light and slippery, this was closer to a homebrewed soda than a dunkelweiss. (#2727, 2/25/2007)

Nice ruby red color with solid white foam and lacing. Hazy as all wheats but darker than expected. Good flavors and a nice undertone of banana esters showing through.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 Bottled as Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse. Hazy deep orange pour, thin white head. Lackluster wheat aroma, banana skins, stale earthiness. Flavor has an unpleasant bitter component, with crackers(triscuits), toasted malts. Finishes semi-dry, lingering. Overall unpleasant. It amazes me that the company who imports this chose this barely functional brewery as their initial offering in the U.S. market. Hehe, rookies.

50cl swingtop, best by 08/07. Hazy reddish caramel with a big, rocky, off white head. Nose is banana, toasty malt, wheat. Flavor is a little like an old dishrag kind of funky, light banana and a toasty quality. Another eh.
