Awfull German offering, drink if you dare. Often used to fill ’sheets’ not worth the effort! Update 2/16/02 .... I should add that most Weisdbier gives me pounding headaces. But the real reason I diskike this stuff is that it was overtly trendy at my local for many months and i just didn’t see it.

Lovely hazy straw color, has a thick, lacy, bubbly head. Smells fresh and crisp with some lemon. Taste is very, very spicy, more Belgian Wit than German Hefe. Lacking a mite in carbonation, but still refreshing.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2003 Very good hefe-weizen. A sweet clove taste. Really stimulates the senses. Gotta find some Weihenstepaner.

I’ve had this beer from a bottle and on tap from two different places, one being a German restaurant and the other being an English-style pub called ’The Fox and the Hound’ located in Naperville, Illinois. Let me tell you, the stuff they serve on tap at the English Pub is one of the top two beers in the world I’ve ever tasted. (The other being Weinanstephaner on tap at another German restaurant called ’The Schnitzel Platz’ located in Glendale Heights Illinois.
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse is good in a bottle but really great if you’re ever around the Naperville, IL area.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 Splendid aroma, great cloudy chill-haze, abundant and lasting head with moderate lacing. This beer does come off as a little watery, but that makes this beer very drinkable and the excellent carbonation makes up for it. I have had many 6 packs of this beer and have et to grow tired of it.

Nothing more than an average hefe in my estimation. Mildly yeasty and spicy aromas, but lacking when compared to Ayinger Brau-Weisse, Maisels Weisse or even Paulaner. Beautiful deep amber color and bone-colored medium head make it pleasant on the eyes. Flavor profile lacking in complexity. Some yeast and spice, but seems too subtle here as in the nose. Slightly dry finish and average mouthfeel. Nothing to write home about.
