Default Schwarzweiss

Schwarzweiss, a black wheat beer is now on tap at Papago brewing in the PHX area:

http://papagobrewing.com/tap.html

Ron Kloth of Papago brewing brought some to the HB club meeting and we sampled.

It obviously looks dark. The roastyness masks alot of the weiss phenolics.
Yet it is light and refreshing.

Anyone have the pleasure?

I haven't had the pleasure, but it sounds interesting.

It's a first. I've scooped the PAC-NW.

Kapuziner Schwarz-Weiss is the only commercial example and apparently available in Lisle, IL at the Bavarian lodge.

It sounds very interesting. I was thinking of doing schwarzbier this year, maybe I'll create a 'schwarzweiss' to do along with it and compare them side by side.

I had planned on a bit over 50% Munich and about 35% pils as a base, I could just swap out the pils for wheat.

Did it have any of the weiss/weizen clove/banana yeast traits or would you guess that they used a more neutral strain? I'd be interested to know if they used a lager strain.

I'm going to have to ask around again, but I believe that Ron used either 60-40 or 50-50 Black Malt.

If you use me as your measure you'll scoop the NW quite a bit! HA!

Is Papago's worth stopping at? I am going to AZ for a wedding in 2 weeks. We are flying into Tucson, and heading south for the wedding, but then heading up to the Grand Canyon for a few days, and this looks like it is on the way.

Yes. It is.
I know you'll have to slum down to #24 from #1...

Cool. I give it a stop then. (I am actually going to Capone's tonight)

Back on topic, I freaking love Schwartzbiers, so this brew really peaks my interest.
