3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle labelled as Schwarze Weisse pours a light brown color with a finger of white head that leaves little lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with some caramel and light roasted notes. Taste is dark fruits with a caramel malty sweetness and a herbal hop bitterness with some light smoke. Light to medium body with little carbonation. A decent dunkel that was somewhat tasty, but there are better ones out there.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Molasses, raisin, and hop aroma, with wood and nut undertones. Relatively dark brown color with a huge almond colored head. Flavor is very, very sour, with only traces of bark. Weak moss finish. Enjoyable, but given the price, it isn’t a great value.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting... The listing is called Weissbier Dunkel, the pictured label reads Dunkle Weisse, and my bottle is Schwarze Weisse.
It pours a hazy light brown with a tall rocky head. Good lacing. The aroma has a strong, bready yeast content covering caramel/toffee malt and old banana, peels and all. There’s also a slight sour milk smell. The flavor is banana with a lightly roasted malt and a touch of smokiness and a mild bitterness that develops in the finish. Just in time for the Summer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little caramel in the aroma. Not quite as heady as the original weisse but still very heady. This has an interesting flavor. Some caramel malt up front, followed by some sort of fruit perhaps. A hint of metal flavor in this one as well though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on 7/2/2010. This dunkel pours a medium dark brown color from a .5l swing-top bottle. Large sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is wheaty and spicy, with a touch of spiciness. A light to medium bodied dunkel. The malts are slightly roasty, wheaty and cereal. The hops are spicy and a touch earthy. A touch of funkiness maybe, and some fruitiness. A mild and mellow tasting dunkel. Decent carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch of tartness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Labelled as Schwarze Weisse. Medium beer bottle brown with a huge, slightly off white head. The aroma is lightly sour with some apples and leather. This reminds me of apple scented soap. The taste has some tart apples with a little bit of molasses. Some nice notes of leather show in the finish. As it warms, you get some annoying Sweet Tarts.

Pours a hazy brown with a creamy off-white head. Has an aroma of earthy red apple with a tangy zip. Smells a bit like a tripel. Lively fizz with a zip in the finish. Interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Labelled under the schwarze weisse. Pours a deep brown with white fluffy head. Good aroma of bananaclovey spice, phenols, fruity esters, and cidery. Nice toasted and nutty malt character with light caramel hints. More yeast phenols and esters, but overall the flavor is very light compared to the aroma. Weak body and mouthfeel. Ok overall.
