Minus one star because I miss the yeast. Yes, I know its a supposed to be that way. Golden with massive egg white head. Yummy aroma with heavy banana scent and some clove. Flavor is good, but taste like a lot of the flavor has been filtered out. I like their straight Hefe much better.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2004 I have yet to be dissapointed by a Franziskaner beer. This is typical for the brewer as it has a large white head that dissapates into a small one that stays around. Lots of carbonation and a great, light gold. Aroma has mushrooms, earthy grass and a tiny bit of banana. This is refreshing with a slight banana note. I didn't get the sweetness that others noticed. This is not the best Franziskaner.

Bottled
Lager color. Lively carbonation. Nice foamy and steady white head. Strong banana aroma. Hefeweizen banana flavor, crisp carbonated mouthfeel. Refreshing but I like Franziskaner unfiltered hefeweizen more.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2004
Pours pale yellow with a huge foamy white head. Mad bubbles swirling for a long time. Aroma is spice and ripe banana. Flavor is malty, sweet with a nice banana hit. Finish dry, tart and crisp. Not too carbonated. Light body. A very nice Kristall.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2004
Huge soapy white head. Body is straw, see through and very carbonated. Aroma is yeasty. Flavor is soft. Yeast and clove are present. Faint bitterness at the end.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
Bottle from Rai Wines, Birmingham. Wheaty, sugar puff aroma. Fizzy yellow appearance, with a loose, bubbly head. Nice bubblegum flavour to kick off with, though things become blander in the finish, and I'm left with a watery, metallic wash. Big and bouncy in taste, though rather soft and flabby in mouthfeel. This lacks the bite and refreshment which should be provided by this style, and the end I was becoming overwhelmed by unbalanced sweetness.

Well, Spaten holds as being my first in almost all styles to have come from Germany, but those other than in Bavaria. enjoy the slight sourness and all the other elements of this. Need to throw back into my rotation of beers to have now and then as it had been a while.

This was unimpressive. I think reglar ole spaten premium is preferable over this. Surprisingly watery and foamy and blah...
