jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 18, 2007
Had a pint of this at Ginger Man pub in Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day-I have been searching around for this beer and was happy to find it.
Served in a stein with a very small head upon pouring. The color was a nice hazy copper and the smell was great-wheat beer smell with some fruitiness to it.
Tasted great and went down smooth. There is a hint of spice (maybe cardamom?) with a bit of taste of almost banana with the wheat taste-a great combination I felt. Not too strong and something that I could drink a couple more pints of in a session.
I look forward to trying it in Cork, hopefully at the brewery, and maybe bringing back a bottle or two if possible. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2006
Franciscan Well 17/05/06. This one was called Friar Wiesse when I visited there in May. Some cloves in the taste and aftertaste was of cinnamon - at first it was almost a cinnamon burn. Strong cinnamon nose. This was a bit different to most wheat beers that I have tried and I quite liked this one because of its difference.
