Deep and dark colored, cloudy with yeast. Brewed with a darker roasted malt which adds some maltiness to the refreshing flavour of the Hefe-Weissbier.

Pours a medium hazy brown with a brown tinged well forming soft slightly deminishing head. Aroma of soft citrus wheats. Has a nice light citrus taste with a bready malt backtone. Theres also a hint of strawberry in the backbone. Has a lightly carbonated and fine grained mouthfeel.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
Unclear red/ dark amber color. Big head. Aroma like banana and dark honey. Flavor more or less the same. Quite a lot of carbonation. Nice one.

What a great drinking beer. On tap at Mader’s in Milwaukee. (awesome German restaurant) Perfect balance of wheat and malt. Slight caramel taste with sweetness and roasted malt to balance. Finishes smooth and clean.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Excellent beer! Even better than the regular Franziskaner hefe-weisse. In addition to bready malts, also has slight nutty taste.

Pours a cloudy brown with a large white head that lasts. Fruity aromas, although not citus like. Light on the palate with a slightly acidic flavor and definite notes of clove. Farily clean finish with mild astringency.

Reid (2138) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Pint bottle bought in Lincoln City Oregon. Nice enough looking beer, murky dark chesnut coloured with a frothy/chunky light tan head. The aroma was not as strong as I expected from a "real" German Dunkleweizen, all the regular components were there but very muted. fruity and peppery aromas. I was really quite dissapointed with the taste weak overall..yes all the usual "bananas and clove" was there but extremelly weakened. Palate was very thin and almost watery. Overall i felt let down by this one, below average for a German weiss beer

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Pours brown with a nice straw like head. Smells of banana and a bit breaddy. Some mild pear and apple notes are also there as well as some spices. Tastes of bananas and spices and is a bit on the bitter side (peppery). Thick mouthfeel, but not as nice a finish as some others. A bit metallic. I may have to come back to this one again as the bottle may have been past its prime given some of the off aromas and tastes present.

On draft at Ludwig’s... Appears a mahogany red/brown color with a lush tan head that stays untill the last few sips. Light lacing is seen in this one. Smell is of Bavarian yeast, bread, cocoa, light banana, roasty nuts, cream, and clove. Taste is equally as good as the aromas. Mouthfeel is decent. Seems to be medium bodied and refreshingly not to cloying. This would score a bit higher if it filled out the palate just a tad more but it’s nice, nonetheless.

The aroma is of banana and wheat malt. Franziskaner is a mahogany brown with a fully lasting, creamy, light tan head. There is a light banana flavor accompanied by an astringent fruity tartness. Carbonation is high and the mouthfeel is effervescent.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours a murky, dark, tarnished gold-brown with an lasting off-white head. Aroma is bananas, cloves and hay. Flavor is balanced and tart with ripe fruit, banana and a medley of spices from the yeast, and perhaps some hops. Finishes clean. Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated. A slighly above-average hefe.
