Flip top bottle and served in my Aventinus glass: Poured a muddy brown hue with yellowish highlights topped by a huge frothy off-white head and left excellent lace work on the glassware. The nose detected toasted and smoked malting, non-aromatic pipe tobacco, walnut, banana and clove yeasty esters, and other earthy vapors. The taste is much more hefe and less dunkel with a heavy note of banana and acidic sourness over a bready malt and yeast driven base. There is some smoke towards the finish which does help in balance and complexity. The mouth feel is less challenging with a watery dry finish and soft carbonation. A entry level dunkelweizen more than a top example of the genre. Quaffable enough for a ratebeerian try. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle. Strong molasses and sour apple aroma. Medium brown with moderate head. Sour wheat, dark malt, and molasses flavor. Actually tasted more like a dunkelbier to me - nice but minimal fruity esters. Tranquillity (2465) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 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. Ibrew2or3 (8748) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2008
0.5L bottle poured brown with a slight haze and weak off white to tan head. The aroma is a bit light and yet distinctively fruity with Concord grape jam, black currents and boysenberry. If there is a malt or wheat note in there somewhere it’s really faint. The taste is just like the aroma but includes mild tart acidic fruitiness before a tepid level of malts rise up at the finish in the face of the stronger dark fruity notes. It seems to become roasty with a dash of chocolate malts into the finish and a bit beyond. rocbyter (2136) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Sweet fruity yeast aroma. Cloudy brown color with a small tan head. Initially sweet with a mild bitter finish. Sweetness fades a little.

Sampled at Lundeen’s Brew Ha-Ha 2009. Pours a cloudy, amber color with a modest white head. Aroma consists of an average caramel and toffee presence with a light grape, pineapple and light spicy note. Flavor is a bit fruity with a weird melding of cranberry, pineapple and red grape as the basis of the flavor on top of a light toasted malt. Medium body with a moderately sticky texture. Overall not too bad. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
(.5L bottle indicated I should "use by" 9-10 WTF? thanks to bu11zeye) muddy brown with lasting creamy head. Nose is creamy, lightly tart, and raisins. Taste of raisins, light chalky tartness, sweet fig, slightly watery body with a fruity linger. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2011
First of all, bonus point for the cool flip top bottle. Pour big - I mean big loose beige head that almost overflows the glass. Smells fruity - like grape jam on toast. Flavor is a lot drier - More rye toast, the some fruity notes. Maybe a hint of cherry, too. I am kinda drunk... jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear brownish amber color with a small beige head. Flavor is fairly light with somewhat subtle wheat, banana, and clove. Cuso (8880) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 12, 2011
Bottle from Bierzwerg. My bottle says Moosbacher Schwarze Weisse. Dark brown color with huge white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, some fruits. Taste of malt, red fruits, honey, hints of banana. Bittersweet finish. Drinkable.
