A wheat-n-fruity presence on the nose. Good malt presence. Seemed kinda of a light mouth feel, but still heavy on the stomach. Certianly was crisp in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Had on tap at some random bar in Munich. Good head retention though slightly less cloudy than some other wheats in germany. Nice coppery gold color. Aroma and flavors are subdued slighty. Some banana- some clove, and a hint of vanilla at the end with good maltiness and wheat throughout. Very smooth finish and a nice aftertaste.

My main criticism is that this is a soapy beer. When I first tried it, I hated it, on grounds of this alone. Of course, I also hated Hoegaarden for the same reason. But now I realise, a more mature beerdrinker, that both of these are good beers and Franziskaner is yummy, light, frothy and beautiful. I love the monk on the front.

One of my favorite hefe’s. Plus I don’t have to go far to get it. ;^) NIce clove flowered maltiness slighlty citrused. Large white lively bubbled head. Long lasting laciness on a dimpled mug. Not to complex in flavour pretty much straight foward cloves and bananas, perfumed soap I agree. A utility hefe if you will.(common) I like it bunches.

Mmm, mmm, good. That’s what the happy little monk says on the front of this bottle. It’s a full, complex brew, wheaty and malty. However, it has a soapy twinge, but not in a bad way. A good brew.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Update, and a long time coming. Used to be one of my classic default beers, and I still enjoy it, only it’s not as good as I once thought it’s was in my younger years. The need to finally update this rating comes from having it on tap at Lowenbrau in Munich. Pours as a hazy gold in color with a nice creamy head. Taste is light, sweet and fulfilling. Easy to pick up traces of bananas and cloves, with subtle accents of oranges and a little bit of vanilla in the background. Refreshingly effervescent. Great, sweet and clean finish. A solid rendation.

ColoradoBobs (31) - Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2004
12 ounce green bottle, as in the posted picture, purchased from Wilbur’s Wine & Spirits in Fort Collins, CO Lovely cloudy-orange beer with a huge head that lasted the whole glass, with lots of sticky lacing. Pronounced lemon-yeast aroma, with a hint of something warm -- maybe clove? Taste was really delightful -- mild, citrus with a touch of yeasty banana, and a lingering spicey, almost peppery clove-like aftertaste. Not as heavy as Paulaner or Weihenstephaner -- milder, less forward, and a bit less hops bitterness. Amazing mouthfeel for this style of beer: quite smooth and rounded. At 5.0%, and such a pleasant taste, you could drink these comfortably for a long session.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2004
A really nice beer. Not quite as thick as some weissbiers. Still, though, a nice, swet and fruity taste. I agree with other comments that notice a hint of banana.

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy yellow colour with a large, white foamy head. Aroma is banana and cloves. Some banana in the taste but mostly citrus, with a slight sour edge. Medium mouthfeel, quite highly carbonated. Smooth, clean and very drinkable. Very good weissbier.
