May 29th, 2011 - That cheeky monk goes wherever good beer goes. He’s kind, affable, and accessible, even for the poorest beer drinker like me. There’s no reason not to pick up a whole line of the Franziskaner beers, then, and give yourself a week to take in a little German culture and art. I started my horizontal tasting with the Hefe-weissbier Dunkel, appealingly dark, but certain to have a refined elegance reserved for lighter beers. and lagers. It pours with a somewhat thick light brown head, and the body glows with a deep and dark-orange red color, like a dying ember. I can’t catch much aroma through the foam, so I dig a shaft through the bubbles and take a sip. It begins with a light core of chocolate, accented with clove and brown sugar, resembling a pumpkin beer without the vegetal notes. The body is medium, the flavor is good, clear and clean, and sports a lot of straightforward, no-nonsense palate pleasing that would go tremendously well with chicken or pork dishes. Why don’t I buy these beers more often?

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
På kran på Prego, Danmarksplass, Bergen. Mørk tåkete nøttebrun kropp med et fint høyt brunt skum. Treaktige gjærtoner dominerer aromaen. Litt toffeesødme og friskhet. Medium kropp. Litt melete tekstur.

Cristobal37 (392) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Mild weissebier aroma. Grainy, toast, malts, and in general a creamy brew. Lacking the spices of some other dunkel weisse biers. Abrupt finish of semi sweet malt. I used to think this was the best dunkel weisse, but now I find it rather light and bland. A dissappointment.

drmet (368) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2015
-Typical Hefeweizen with Banana,clove,quite a strong wheat flavour. -there was absolutely nomalt character here -undercarbonated -finish was too light The fact that malt was nonexistent in this leads me to believe they used artificial darkener in this.Certainly wont put it behind ABInBev. Tasted like a normal Franziskaner Hefe except with less carbonation and lighter-bodied The Erdinger Dunkel wasnt great either but at least it tasted like a Dunkel

Diabobale (307) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - AUG 27, 2015
Colore tonaca di frate con schiuma fine abbondante e persistente di color avorio. Al naso note fruttate (banana e frutta gialla matura) si accompagnano a note tostate (nocciola) e leggermente affumicate. Entra troppo carbonata, con corpo esile. Al palato è di nuovo fruttata e leggermente acidula e tostata. Amaro quasi nullo. Molto beverina comunque

Comparada con la Naturtrub no aporta nada. Por lo demás es una trigo dunkel aceptable.
