Cloudy yellowish. Big, stable head. Pleasant, fruity aroma and flavor. Lacks some depth. Easily drinkable, though.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 sweet citrusy and honey aroma, smells alot like a very good belgian whit, yeasty. Taste is smooth and again it reminds me more of a whit then a hefe, acid citrus is a bit dominant but is balanced quite well ... this is exceptional for the style and very easy to down a few kegs of

Poured from the bottle. A cloudy coppery appearance beneath a good full head. Loved the aroma, with banana and honey coming through. Tasted very bitter for a wheat beer (I’m not complaining) and was very smooth over the palate. Would be the best wheat-based beer I have tasted for a while.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 Orange and hazy. Big lasting head. Fruitesters in the nose - banana. Nice fruity sweetness, citrus and yeast. A really good weissbeer, but not the best i’ve tasted.

One sip and I’m sitting with my buddies in a biergarten overlooking dowtown Munchen on a smoldering summer evening. Yeah it’s that good, at least if you have ever pondered copulation with a good weizenbier....

Pinter. Poured into a taller glass like it was poured in Germany. Poured cloudy-yellow with lots of haze. Bread/Banana aroma. Taste followed same with the additional lemon. Kind of typical. The yeast at the bottom didnt really seem to evapourate after being spun. Kind of just, clumped out and danced lazily in the glass. Very smooth palate and enjoyable to drink in the late afternoon as its light.

This one was one of the first non-swill brews I ever bought. Bought it at the Kroger in College Station, TX back in ’94. I love this beer, not only for the nostalgia, but for the taste. This is a nice and sprigltly lil’ sippin’ brew that is to be savored. The monk on the label is funny looking, and that marketing tool has worked on me for over 10 years.

Bottled. Yellow, cloudy, huge white head. Citric barley dominates the aroma. Soft and smooth taste of sweet citric barley and wheat, with hints of caramel. Not much aftertaste, only a lot of sweetness, which stays for about 15 seconds.

Served on tap at the BW3’s on Hwy 100 - suprised to see this available! Looks like a hehe. Pleasant white bread / banana aroma with subdued toasted mint. Bread dough plus banana candies plus clove and a light astingent papery finish. The finish detracts a lot, otherwise this was a fine wheat beer.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Impressive head. Delicious beer. Drink it by itself to experience the full range of flavors. It’s my father’s favorite beer. Lucky for me, I inherited his stash of Franziskaner when he went on the South Beach diet. Sweet!
