COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Now, this is beer! Germans should be proud for their skill in brewing one of the best beers in the whole world! Franziskaner is made out of wheat and thus is the cloudy consistency and unique flavor of this original beer. The Dunkel or Dark version is particular good. Much foamy and much clouder than the regular Franziskaner Weissbier.

By far my favorite beer. Smooth. Great flavor. How real beer should taste. Best served with a slice of lemon. Perfect Carmel balanced with a good earthiness. I love this type of beer. After drinking it for a while and then drinking a standard American beer, it feels like the American beer is a beer flavored soda.

Thanks to Salü in Wolfsburg, Germany! Cloudy deep amber coloring with a two fingers of head. Sweet, smooth, tasty. Easy on the palate. Easily has a taste of banana. In parts of Germany it is not uncommon for this beer to be drank with banana juice poured into it before being drank. Quite tasty.

tanstil (122) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 12, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 0,5l bottle. A dark brown dunkelweizen with orange highlights. Good head. The aroma has notes of fruits, caramel, malts and spices. The taste is good balanced and quite tasty, with notes of fruits, caramel and malts. Long delicious finish. Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel, is a really great beer.

First dunkel i have tried, and definitely one of the better beers i have ever tasted. Nice spicy taste like the regular hefe, but has an additional malty, caramel flavor. Loved it.
