phillymonksman (60) - Ardmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
Light cloudy amber color with a nice head. A great fruity smell with a light palate. Good summer beer. A little sour aftertaste that I don't like.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Enormous, fizzy soda-like head that faded fairly quickly but not completely. Very pale straw color and ultra-clear with lively effervescent carbonation. Pleasing citrus, stone fruit, and yeast aromas. Flavor and palate are rather thin and watery for a hefeweizen. Lacks the nice softness of a good hefeweizen. Comparing this to the Franziskaner Hefe-weizen is a classic example of the toll that filtration takes on depth and quality. I question whether filtration purely for the sake of appeasing the superficial aesthetic sense of neophytes is a worthy endeavor for a brewery. But I guess it’s all about sales in this case… and I bought one.

alanC (36) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 8, 2003
Crystal clear, straw color. Nice carbonatioina nd big cream head. Slightly spicy aroma with some banana and clove. Crisp, tart flavor with nice bubbly mouthfeel. The real champagne of beers.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 29, 2003
Pale golden with beautiful thick head. Sweet fruity aroma (bananas, lemons) and taste of candies and caramel. Simple and boring.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Effervescent gold hue under a billowy white head. Bright, peppery nose replete with peach cobbler and banana cream pie. Spicy phenols tingle before bready malts and a light candy sweetness, finishing spicy still. Fluffy carbonation on a lithe, slick body.

Bright and brisk—quenching.

50 cl bottle, best before February 2009.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Pours a clear golden colour, with champagne-like carbonation, with a big fluffy white head. Apple and grassy herbal nose. Light banana, creamy, pleasant citric notes. Light bodied, extremely drinkable. Fairly impressive and flavorful for a filtered beer...I believe this is my first filtered german wheat, and it wasnt half bad...

jerohen (1992) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2003
The hefeweissen hell is fantastic. The dunkel is certainly ok. But why this filtered version? It lacks all the complexity i'm looking for in a beer.

caesar (5059) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2003
Clear yellow, the filtered version of the hefeweizen. Aroma of citrus, probably because of the lemon served in my beer. Much weaker taste than the hefeweizen. Those kristalls are useless additions as the hefe always tastes better.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
Pale yellow with some carbonation. Banan and malt in aroma. Smooth but quite dull flavour of brown (old) bananas. Finishes quite malty but really skunky. Don't like the Kristall-wheats.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Pale golden color, lots of lace and carbonation. Spicy almost peppery yeast aroma. Smooth flavor, lightly yeasty and malty. Finish is some what dry and mildly peppery. Quite similar to other Franziskaner brews.
