Pour is a dark hazy brown with a large white head. Aroma is a very sweet brown sugar molasses combo. Flavor is sub par. Some dirty malts show up but not much else. Finish is watery and weak. Not as bad as some have said on here and Im sure its much better in Germany. FatPhil (17075) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2007
Very dark, very lively with a big and soap-frothy head - self supporting, and after the initial pour it’s pretty tight. Banana, and some dense spicy aroma - promises good things. Good carbonation in the mouth, but on the excited side. Unfortunately, the promises from the aroma aren’t delivered in the taste. There is a very pleasant wheaty hefe taste, but just as you’re swallowing something odd jumps out. Unfortunately I can’t identify it; it’s not ’vegetably’, but it’s definitely ’organic’, part of it is muesli grain, perhaps. There’s also the spiciness back again - something not sharp or aromatic, but dark and almost, pungent. I didn’t find this particularly sweet, unlike other reviewers. Perhaps this is one where the quality varies. AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2007
I was not impressed with this beer. It reminded me of a weak, watered down syrup with extra metallic flavoring added. DragonStout (1418) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2007

Bottled under the name Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse. I’m surprised this one gets such a bad rating! Hazy brown, with a medium beige head. Sweet molasses aroma, quite fruity. Fruity also on the palate, with figs and raisins. Long finish.

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. BDR (2535) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Dark colored beer with faint white head. Sweet toffee malt nose that had defnintly soured. Grainy body with caramel hints. JK (6280) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Not very good for one of my favorite styles. Aroma has light wheat and some chemicals. Flavor is a sour, too sour for the style. There is wheat in there as well, but no fruit or spices common to the style. There is a lot of yeast and the color is right. This beer was probably off. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2007
(bottle, thanks Brewfiend) Pours dark brown with a white head. Slight wheat aroma with some light banana smell too. A somewhat sour acidic taste with a little wheat on the finish. joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours a reddish mahogeny like color with a huge white head. Very unique nose that is kinda sweet kinda sour, almost like a butterscotch like nose. Pretty tart flavor with a little sweet malt. Not sure what I think. This might have been an off bottle.
