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?

Watching The Hobbit 3. In Paulaner glass. Even being a good one, I prefer the blonde version. This one is a bit more sweet than I like.

Aroma of dark malt, wheat, banana, roasted nuts and dark fruit. Pours cloudy dark brown liquid with a big white soapy head. Sweet taste, flavour is mostly banana, pear along with other fruits, sugar, roasted malt and wheat. Light body with a slick texture and lively carbonation, fruity finish and a little watery. Nice fruity taste, but too thin.

ASPETTO: marrone molto torbido, con schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. AROMA: tipico di una weiss, con sentori citrici e fruttati. GUSTO: si assomiglia alla sua sorella maggiore, la bionda. Diciamo che ha meno banana di quest’ultima, ma chiude con un gradevole e chiarissimo sentore di frutti di bosco. Corpo leggero, carbonizzazione abbastanza accentuata. CONCLUSIONE: preferisco la bionda, che è sicuramente più pulita e dissetante, ma anche questa si difende bene.
