BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[bottle] Pours brownish/orange in color, with a very light haze. Strong clove and spice in the aroma. Flavors are quite thin, but that’s sort of expect for a light beer like this. Grainy wheat flavors, with minimal fruity ester character. Finishes dry and quite clean. Definitely a hefeweizen, and certainly drinkable, but not something I’m dying to pick up again.

Bottle. Grey cloudy, no head. Dry clove and banana. Medium light body, sparkles, mellow fruit. Pleasant enough in the summer heat.

gopherfan99 (983) - CROATIA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle; pours clear gold with a white head; aroma is yeast, banana, and wheat with some faint spice; taste is light sweet with banana, wheat, and yeast with a hint of citrus; finish is mostly dry with faint spice; overall I was a bit disappointed because I really enjoy Franziskaner’s other beers quite a bit but this one is thin, watery, and a bit bland

massingasetta (456) - München, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2014
Es ist kein Geheimnis Franziskaner ist ein Gutes Weissbier und die Leichte Variante kann auch überzeugen. Wer fahren muß oder weniger PS will, liegt bei dieser Leichtvariante sehr gut. Es schmeckt nur ein Hauch weniger süffig als die nicht-leicht Variante. Ein Gutes Absacker Bier das einem nicht den Rest gibt.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes orange-goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, leicht fruchtig. Geschmack hefig, leicht bananig fruchtig, minimal säuerlich.

jaghana (4823) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle 50cl, a cloudy copper orange beer with huge head. Nose is very fruity on banana, clove and wheat. Aroma is fruity, malt notes are there too, quite ceramy, fresh bread notes, just watery and dry, very nice body for such a low alcohol beer.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2013
It’s unclear golden with a huge, creamy, white head. The aroma has notes of yeast (slightly spice) fruit and wheat. The sweet flavor has notes of yeast, banana and other fruits, wheat, and the finish is soft and still yeasty. A very nice leichte weisse.

Albundy94 (36) - Paris, FRANCE - DEC 23, 2012
500 ml bottle from Munich, Germany. Orange cloudy color with a creamy and milky head. Light body and very watery. Aroma is raisin, apple and banana and almost no specific flavor except a spicy yeast aftertaste. Very little bitter in the end. Overall a beer for summertime with low alcohol, but nothing really interesting. Go for an original Weissbier instead, not the Leicht version.

rosenbergh (8864) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
500 ml bottle. L311126. BB 11/2012. From mein-biershop.de.
Cloudy pale golden colour with average to big fluffy white head. Wheat, fruits, banana and mild yeast in aroma. Flavour is sweet caramel, wheat, mild yeast, bread and banana. It’s a kind of cut version of tasty Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier.
