3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden with beautiful thick head. Sweet fruity aroma (bananas, lemons) and taste of candies and caramel. Simple and boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow with a massive white head leaving some lacing. Fruity, weisse beer nose, spicy, grainy and floral. Nice flavor, much lighter than the unfiltered weisse beers, yet still retains the tropical fruitiness and spice. Light body with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable - a nice summer beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A clear golden color with a large rocky head that is off white. The aroma is somewhat skunky with some wheat aroma, hops and banana. The flavor is of banana and wheaty with some nice sweetness.
