On tap - plastic cup. The poor serving probably skewed my opinion towards the negative, so I tried to think back to previous Franziskaners from years past. Nice Hefe look with pleasant wheaty aroma. Taste was OK - smooth and sweet. I will have to try again with a bottled version.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wonderful German wheat beer with the perfect blend of yeast and wheaty flavors with a very fruity aroma. The dark version is much better in the falovor category but this is still a wonderful beer. Even my non-adventourous wife will savor every drop. The perfect weiss to use as a benchmark when learning to appreciate this category.

Bottle. Hazy golden with typical enormous white, wheat head (does marijuana beers come with a "pot" head?). Banana, wheat and yeast in aroma. Sweet, malty, yeasty flavour. Not bad...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow, hazy pour with huge, frothy white head. I thought this was a solid hefe. Sweet, yeasty, wheaty, fruity nose that is dominated by banana esters. The flavor hit on coriander, allspice and sweet fruits, especially banana. Slight lemon flavor. Medium body, lively carbonation, short finish.

Definately my favorite Hefe. Offers (to me) a perfect blend between the citrus and yeast notes. Some subtle lemon or banana flavors going on too.

I’ll be short. This is my go-to hefe. It’s regularly $1.99 at my local Vons, which is a-ok by me. No, it’s not the best Hefe, but it’s damn good, especially for the price. Widely available.

Aroma of yeast and citrus. Hazy light orange color with bubbly white head. Yeast, light malt and some citrus - arguably lemon. Quite tastey.

Cold 16.9oz bottle: Pours a cloudy yellowish orange with small ivory head. Some chunks which settled to to the bottom of the class. Aroma is of sharp yeast with notes of banana and citrus. Taste is mainly of yeast, sweet malt and lemony ending.
