Other Information

Hacker Pschorr is one of the big six Munich breweries and was founded in 1417 by monks before ending up in the hands of the Hacker Family. It wasn’t until 1793 when Joseph Pschorr married into the family that the brewery was put on the map. His two sons would go on to divide the brewery, taking over the two separate Hacker and Pschorr wings, which would prosper under their guidance. However, the Second World War led to the Pschorr brewery being bombed, and Hacker then allowed Pschorr to brew at their brewery twice a week until the damage was repaired. Blood proved thicker than water and in 1972 the two breweries joined forces once again. Today the brewery is part of the Paulaner brand but still operates independently.
Hacker-Pschorr’s Sternwisse means White Star and appears a copper-amber in colour and is the newest star in Bavaria’s sky. This lightly carbonated wheat beers expertly combines dark malts with light fruit flavours to create a well balanced wheat beer. It contains all natural ingredients, as it adheres to the German Purity Laws and it is also unfiltered. At 5.5% it is complex without being too intense and has a delicate flavour with the malts giving flavours of caramel, almonds and marzipan as well as a hint of coriander. The aroma is that of delicate fruits and bubble gum, with soft fruits heading into the flavour followed by smoked ham and bacon. It pairs particularly well with hearty dishes.

  1. Otto The Bier Dude

    Pours cloudy amber colour, massive, sponge-like off-white head. Fruity nose with raisins, banana and clove. Taste of banana, stone fruits on a biscuity malty base, hints of yeast, low bitterness. Medium body, velvety texture, high carbonation, fruity finish. Smooth.

  2. Stujago

    Muted hefeweizen flavours but nicely balanced. Definite malty taste to it. Nice.

  3. Steven Robinson

    Found this one a bit bitter even for my taste. Still worth a try though

  4. David Hanson

    Smooth drinking, big fluffy head, malty & fruity, banana & cloves, very decent.

  5. Richard Martin

    Not too fizzy – really quite smooth in the pour. Caramel taste and delicate aroma. No bitterness and makes for very easy drinking that belies the strength

  6. Gordon Wishart

    Loved this beer. Had a lovely, rich flavour like a Helle, but the as easily drinkable as a Krystal. Would definitely buy this again. I don’t think I’ve had a Hacker-Pschorr I haven’t enjoyed, they’re a safe bet.

  7. Kristin

    Pleasant taste, getting some flavours of coriander & caramel

  8. Paul C

    From the explosive pop on opening to the final drop,a very enjoyable Hefeweizen.
    Banana and sweet fruit aromas are followed by malty, caramel and fruity tastes.
    Smooth, easily drinkable with gentle bitterness.

  9. JL

    I think this is an acquired taste though the brewery is excellent. Bit too much alcohol on the front end and caramel but if a sweeter Weiss is your thing, you won’t be upset…

  10. Kris

    Packs a good punch for a wheatbeer – more depth of flavour than I was expecting

  11. Eric Akrill

    Another little cracker from the Hacker Pschorr family! Following a loud ‘pop’ as I opened the bottle, it pours with a lighter than normal hue to it for a Dunkel. There’s the expected banana nose to the head, which is thick and creamy. A slightly sweet initial flavour on the tongue gives way to a nice, malty after taste with hints of clove in there. I love this brew and will definitely buy it again!

  12. Simon Tomlinson

    Large tight foamy off white head stayed on a cloudy amber body.
    Malt, caramel & oat aroma.
    Medium bodied, well carbonated with a clean back.
    Malt, caramel, toffee & caramel tastes with limp fruity finish.

  13. Kul

    Very hazy unfiltered dark tan in colour, lightly carbonated. It has a gentle malty flavour giving tones of caramel, almonds and maybe marzipan with a tinge of bitterness and even smoke.
    The aroma is delicate and sweet, pouring with a fine mocha coloured head.
    Body is a little weak.
    A beer I may consider again but not sure.

  14. Mike

    Smooth and dark. Well carbonated with the expected banana and clove flavours for the style. Very nice!

  15. Gavin Harrison

    A very enjoyable dark wheat beer that will leave you asking “Where is the wheat?” The cloudiness tells you it’s there, the lingering head confirms it is, But the aroma and taste are malt-driven with the merest hint of fruity sweetness. Drinks more like a traditional Dunkel-Tmavy but none the worse for that. If you want the banana hit of a Weissen, look elsewhere but I recommend enjoying this for what it is – a quality German dark beer.

  16. WJ

    Very refreshing for a Dunkelweizen. The flavour from the wheat dominates with just a touch of fruitiness. If it didn’t pour a caramel colour you might be fooled into thinking it’s Hefeweizen. That said it’s excellent as one expects from a Hacker.

  17. Matt

    Currently one of my top 5 German beers. Smooth, malty, bready, creamy with subtle sweetness, Very drinkable – necked in 3. Just ordered a another box of 6.

  18. Ba Faiers

    Full flavoured and malty, slightly sweet. I don’t usually like wheat beers but I will be ordering this one again.

  19. Neal Haynes

    The flip top bottle adds to the enjoyment of this beer. A naturally cloudy amber German Pilsner. When poured, the foam head doesn’t last, but this doesn’t detract from the spicy bitter taste.

  20. Alastair Paterson

    Excellent! Extremely fresh and enjoyable. A model bottle conditioned beer. A darker flavour (as well as colour) than a ‘standard’ hefe weiss and less sweet in the mouth. Very nice indeed; no negatives whatsoever.

  21. David Beckham

    Ordered by mistake, thinking was a different beer. However, when i tried it, absolutely GORGEOUS.
    100% recommend, even if its not your usual type of beer.
