COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bavarian Style Wheat Beer. This beer has a large popularity in particular in southern Germany. Using an original German yeast strain in the brewing process contributes to the natural fruity flavor of Banana, Orange and Cloves, giving it a outstanding refreshing taste. Our Wheat Beer comes unfiltered leaving all the natural goodness in it.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub. Served as Franconia Hefeweizen. The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a decent-sized white head. The aroma is full of wheat with some banana and spicy clove notes. The flavor is very creamy and is full of banana flavor. There is a little bit of clove in the flavor, but it hides behind the banana and wheat. Creamy, medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice Texas-brewed hefeweizen.

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2011
On tap - Holy Grail Pub. Cloudy golden pour, small amount of head. Banana, clove, and citrus aromas - flavor is spicy and refreshing. Very banana forward like Franziskaner and other traditional, German brewed hefes. Would be great on a hot Texas summer day!

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2010
On tap at the Holy Grail. Poured a hazy, light orange body with a bubbly head that recedes quickly. Aromas of light spices, cloves, light banana and some bubblegum. Flavors mirror the aromas and end with a dry finish. Medium mouthfeel with a soft carbonation.

kidmartinek (3639) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Slightly cloudy, bright yellow, white head. Doughy banana flavor. Absolutely perfectly refreshing wheat taste with a hint of vanilla and banana and the perfect body and mouthfeel. Heavy lace and a satisying finish. There’s just no other way to put it.

hopscotch (9100) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Hand bottle… Cloudy, deeply golden ale with no head. The nose offers banana, pear, toffee and clove. Light-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is clean and thin while presenting nice notes of toffee and banana. Crisp, watery, refreshing finish. Sample provided by ericandersnavy!

Sammer (1030) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Cloudy pour from tap at Plano Tortilla Factory. Very pleasant banana bread and pepper taste. Light creamy mouthfeel. Solid wheat beer, wish they still sold it at PTF.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2009
(draught at Fillmore pub in Plano, tx) pours cloudy yellow orange with nice lasting creamy head. Nose of funky wheat and spices. Taste of dirty water, wheat, spices, overripe banana and a creamy finish that’s slightly dirty with more very ripe bananas.

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap at Gingerman Fort Worth. Nice flavor and smell. Awkward mouthfeel in the back-side of my throat.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Tap at brewery.
Pours a cloudy, thick yellow with a healthy white head that lasts throughout the time spent drinking the beer. Aroma is trash water, pure and simple. Yuck. Flavor is slightly rank clover and ripe banana. Clean mouthfeel that leaves a slippery film of flavor on the tongue. Good beer, but the stink detracts.

Cavie (3786) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Clouded orange pour. Wheat aroma and taste with lots of citrus notes. Quite a good wheat, probably the best thing to come out of Franconia yet. 4.1
RE-RATE 4/9/11 Tap at the brewery. This beer pours a cloudy golden orange color. It has a nice frothy head. Very hazy which is due to being non-filtered.

Clove sweetness on the nose, wheat tones and gentle fruit. I would say this is banana aromas.

Banana flavor for sure, with light bread and fresh grain. Yeasty aroma and flavor as it warms. Tasty. I haven’t had the wheat in quite awhile but I am liking how it has changed over time.
