Kapuziner is billed as a Bavarian Schwarz-Weizen, a black wheat ale.  Sold in 500mL bottles, and clocking in at 5.4%, it poured an almost black colour with reddish highlights and a very thick off-white head. It's built by the Kulmbacher Brauerei in Kulmbach, Germany. This is a brew that I got at a quality beer establishment in Washington, D.C.--they offered a $3 mystery beer, and this was the one that came out of the cooler.
Kapuziner had a malty aroma with some smokiness. The flavour was smokey with a hint of liquorice and peat. Also fairly yeasty. Pretty full-flavoured for a wheat beer, Kapuziner is a tasty brew with a lot to offer. I'd say it's worth a try.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
