Golden body with white head. Very well rounded beer. Clean finish. Has a nose of wheat more so than anything else. Wouldn’t expect nothing less from Franziskaner. Love it.

This hefeweizen is tops. Very different from any other I have tried. Hint of spice is distintive. Smooth and full with a clean finish.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Wow! Pours with an insane head. The taste is supper fresh and great for the heat here in Panama. I got loads of fresh banana yeast and other fruity flavors. I’ll be going back to this one again!

I’m a hefeweizen addict, and Franziskaner is up at the top for me. Good pale yellow appearance. A decent amount of head. I could taste a nice flavor of bubble gum, banana, and a little spice. Very nice on the palate. Great on a summer day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow-golden, cloudy body; small bubbles with average density; large and lasting white head with average lacing.
Aroma is moderately malty with a citric background due to hops; fruity notes (banana and apple) together with some spicy notes (cloves, I’d say).
Sweet malty flavour at the beginning, then leaves space to a moderate bitterness in the finish; light acidic feeling n the background.
Body is light to medium with a lively carbonation; lightly astringent in the finish.
This beer is very satisfactory and refreshing; the balance between fruity notes and bitterness in the finsh is very pleasant.

Draft at Prost. Big white head, gorgeous golden body. Amazingly complex nose--loads of lemon, melon, and other citrusy goodness. Flavor opens up fast on the attack with citrus and some spice, broadening to a pale malt base with a bit of herbs on the top. Very little bitterness. Totally refreshing and satisfying.

500 ml bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a big, white, foamy head. Nose is big wheaty, spicy - coriander, light clove. Some bananna aromas. Dense white veil of lace. Fairly light flavor, more malt than anticipated. Naturally, is is wheaty, and the spices really shine as is warms a bit. Excellent example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/augusta/l target=blank>Lou’s Beverage Barn) Pours a fairly cloudy light yellow-orange with a big foamy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus and glue. Spotty lacing. Mouthfeel is soft and tingly. Refreshing wheaty and citrusy flavor. Seems like it’s lacking a little freshness, no telling how old the bottle may be. A nice wheat nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color. Decent frothy head. Aroma is combination of yeast, trace citrus and maybe a little spice. Taste is very yeasty and wheaty. Good representation of style. Not the best, but pretty darn good.
