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.

Big lasting head, brownish opaque appearance. Tastes great - thick, smooth, nice malty & fruity flavour, very characteristic and typical of other Franziskaner beers. Very good dunkel.

Poured a cloudy brown with a creamy head. A little sweet, but a nice long finish. Good beer.

A darker weissbier, this has a sharper taste, but goes down well. Leaves a strong yet pleasent aftertaste.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2005
Muddy dark copper, faint light brown head. Nutty, oily and roasty nose is hugely phenolic and procures blatant salmon notes that won’t leave my mind and pretty much cuts most other nuances I could get out of the nose. I won’t browse through 300+ ratings to get feedback on this, but I’m almost shocked that apparently no one else mentions this, not even in the form of a smokiness. Not so exuberant in mouth, but it remains very simplistic. Don’t search for estery richness in here, straightforward bready yeast procures more sourness than the wheat can dream of while the malt profile is dominated by dull roasted nuts. Herbal spiciness accentuates the enormous ultimately annoying carbonation. A rare feat: a weizen that is tough to finish. Burp.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle. Thick head that made it take forever to pour. Complex flavors, sweet, bitter, yeasty, wheat. It left a bizarre feel in my mouth, like when you wake up in the morning and your mouth feels sticky inside. Overall, very enjoyable. I can’t comment much on the color because I used a green pint glass.

The flavour was like the aroma, very sweet and malty. The head was huge and lasting.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours a light brown color with a big foamy white head. Nose is light malt and plums. Taste has a slight bit of chocolate to it, quite a bit of malt, and some sweet caramel and raisins.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Bottle. The appearance was impressive, nice, cloudy, dark amber color with a large frothy off white head that lasted quite awhile. The aroma had a faint banana, yeastiness to it. The flavor, however, just didn’t do it for me, too watery, the flavors just didn’t come through as strong as I would have liked.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2005
poured a murky caramel color with a thick white head, aroma was of wheat, citrus, and spice, & malt, as well as the taste, was really malty, but not bad, decent beer.
