3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very cloudy with a lasting off-white head. The aroma is yeasty with some spiciness. The taste has yeastiness and a very slight hoppy finish. Overall, though, it could do with a bit more body.

has a sweet malty with maybe a hint of chocolate aroma. Cloud orangish brown. Bit of a yeasty texture, not really any bold taste to it, fairly average.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/2 L. bottle. Brings back memories. Nice big head fit great in a traditional Weizenbier glass. Cloudy amber in color. The aroma reminded me a little bit of a nice bourbon with vanilla or fruit undertones. Taste was a little disappointing as it only slightly matched the aroma, but still refreshing- lighter than it looks. Nice trip down memeory lane.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Pours dark brown with a substantial head. The aroma is of yeast and a hint of bananas. The flavor is fairly sweet and again the banana notes are noticeable. The medium body is creamy, but too fizzy in my opinion. The finish is dry.

man i used to love me some franziskaner. still a top dog winner to me in the hefe groups. the dark version here is a bit more robust and toffee esque with some darker roasted malt tapped onto the original banana spice flavors. light and refreshing on a summer day....keep those lemons outa there!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice dark brown-hazy amber color. Foamy head. Thick aroma of banana bread and light clove. Creamy carbonated body with a dryish finish. However, while the medium body is good, the taste is less than the aroma would lead you to believe. Very light, with wheat and banana. Nothing really good or bad about it, just kind of boring really.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Served in a HB 0,5l weiss glass. The apperance of this beer is incredible. No beer can live up to this apperance. Huge head, of course, white with copper beads. Hazy gold and white underneath. Then a dark copper cloudiness in the middle again, til it lightens up again at the bottom. The taste is fruity, sweet plantine and fig. Can really taste the wheat after. Tingles on the tongue.

Pours a dark brown with a lot of head. The aroma is a little fruity. Goes down smooth with less sweetness than the standard hef and surprisingly less taste. Still a good medium body hef.
