Cloves, banana from yeast. Lemon in there. Above average for style. Malt sweetness aftertaste. Less carbonation would work . On tap at Blue Tusk.

Geiserich (3740) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 13, 2004
Light sweet aroma, wheat and yeast notes. Cloudy golden orange, rocky head. Light smooth mouthfeel, clove and light banana notes. Fruity but not very tastefull. A little bit thin at the end. Overrated, in my opinion.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Very good Hefeweizen. This beer is much better on tap then out of the bottle. Very accesible also. I recommend it highly.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 Pours a cloudy yellow, great thick white head. Aroma is very grassy. Taste is the same grassy and hops but a slight irony aftertaste, very very slight banana but not even evident, pretty boring really, but not bad tasting, almost more a pilsner or lager really.

Bottle. Aroma is wheaty, with malt and just a touch of hops. Pours a slightly cloudy pale brown, with a really thick, rich, pillowy light-tan colored head. Head lasts damn near forever. Flavor is fruity, with prominent banana notes and slightly detectable alcohol. Hops is hardly detectable, wither in the aroma or flavor. Light to medium-light carbonation. Probably a repeat buy.

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 (5075) - 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.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 31, 2004
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.
