The Brü Revü – Kapuziner Schwarz-Weizen

The Kapuziner Schwarz-Weizen is technically a Black Wheat beer which is slightly different than a Dunkelweizen and not quite a full Schwarzbier, but firmly in the middle.  The bottle was one of those cool German flip tops that made a loud pop when I opened it.  It poured an opaque dark brown with a full head with great retention.  Overall the palate was light and thin for such a dark beer and the flavor was subtle with roasted malt, caramel and a bit of wheat.  The flavors became more pronounced and complex as it warmed.  This was definitely a lighter beer than I was expecting, but a solid German beer nonetheless and highly drinkable.
