COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

This beer comes from the oldest Weissbier brewery in the Munich area. It's a comparative dark Weissbier with a bit stronger flavor. Most bavarians love it and I also can recommend it to everybody.

probably the best weißbier out there. the funny thing is that it´s actually quite dark.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 2007-12-05, draught in Düsseldorf airport, served too cold, 7-3-6-2-13=31
Muddy brown color. The aroma is nice, because it’s balanced and fruity (banana). The flavor is less interesting, supported by a quite weak body, with a mix of spices, caramel and some banana; it ends quite dry. Not bad, but not convincing.

2003-06-28, bottle, 7-4-7-3-13=34
Cloudy amber color. Pleasant aroma: spicy; but also maltier than other Weizenbier. Good body, quite malty but also with a sharp banana touch; pretty dry. The final is probably too sweet, and lacking of character.

The aroma is very lightly sweet and wheaty with notes of sourness. The color is an unclear mixture of brown and yellow and it has a fine head. The flavor is a very refreshing wheat flavor, very soft, and very complex for a wheat beer. One of my favorite wheat beers.

Fairly deep color for a wheat. Frothy off-white head. Strong banana prescence. Nice mouthfeel, medium to full body. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2003
Bottled, at the Wenlock Arms,
Its at this point things start to go slightly awry. Marcus, the mad beer lovin’ German from The Masque Haunt walks in. It’s only his 2nd time here. He insists that I have a Weiss beer with him. I try to resist, sighting my plan and the fact you can drink from a bottle any old day, but seeing the passion in this guys heart for Weiss beer had to comply. Served in its own class Marcus turned the serving of the beer into a show. Swirling the last tenth of a beer around in the bottle and acrobatically serving it like a cocktail. Murky brown with a big fluffy head. It was a bit like drinking lemon-scented-gravel. Complex and complete, for the weiss beer lovers this must be heaven but I was looking forward to the IPA. 4 of 7.

smoosh (535) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Bottle: (maybe old?) Deep golden color. Small white head with next to no retention. Little fruity nose. Nice flavor - fairly pronounced banana. Good beer, but based on my purchased single I prefer the Franziskaner.

Holdwine (1071) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2003
On draft. Very complex wheat. Not pale and retiring at all. Amber alish in color. Slight taste of the residue from a bubblegum wrapper (not that that makes sense). A great beer.
