500 ml bottle. Clear, low head. Relatively faint nose, some wheat some clove and banana, but not very interesting. Flavors if lots of wheat, esters, banana and peaches, grapes, even. Cloves too. Tastes nice enough. But still, i have found absolutely no reason why anyone might possibly want this over the hefe.

nightswimming (16) - TURKEY - MAY 11, 2014
500 cl. bottle. smells like soap but it’s pretty fresh. i always think that weissbier shouldn’t mean "banana", ok. but if we’re talkin’ about franziskaner kristallklar, it’s hard to say a weissbier. maybe it’s a "light banana soda" that looks like a very pure and clean lager.

Bottle at konttori, tampere. Clear deep golden color, white head. Aroma is wheaty and malty. Taste is wheat, some yeast and malts. It’s more lagerlike than basic hefes.

You should try this Franziskaner white beer. But it is not a world class beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very pale yellow, naturally. With diminishing white head. Aroma of wheat, fruit and some yeast. Taste is more of the same, and a touch of hoppy bitterness in the tail.
