May 29th, 2011 - That cheeky monk goes wherever good beer goes. He’s kind, affable, and accessible, even for the poorest beer drinker like me. There’s no reason not to pick up a whole line of the Franziskaner beers, then, and give yourself a week to take in a little German culture and art. I started my horizontal tasting with the Hefe-weissbier Dunkel, appealingly dark, but certain to have a refined elegance reserved for lighter beers. and lagers. It pours with a somewhat thick light brown head, and the body glows with a deep and dark-orange red color, like a dying ember. I can’t catch much aroma through the foam, so I dig a shaft through the bubbles and take a sip. It begins with a light core of chocolate, accented with clove and brown sugar, resembling a pumpkin beer without the vegetal notes. The body is medium, the flavor is good, clear and clean, and sports a lot of straightforward, no-nonsense palate pleasing that would go tremendously well with chicken or pork dishes. Why don’t I buy these beers more often?

Zarrach76 (69) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 10, 2016
Weissbier brune typique, trouble et avec une mousse fine. Nez rond, très pâtissier, sur le caramel, le chocolat, le miel, la châtaigne, le malt, le pain noir, les céréales cuites, le sarrasin... Aucune trace d’alcool ni d’agrumes. En bouche, la carbonatation est faible et l’alcool commence à être perceptible. La texture est légèrement huileuse, aucune sécheresse. Une petite amertume cependant sur la gorgée avec un côté minéral et métallique, vite masquée par les arômes déposés sur la langue et le palet. Petit goût de levures agréable qui accompagne bien le final de longueur moyenne. Assez peu de sucres, ce qui en fait une boisson assez désaltérante tout en étant assez dense. Une très bonne Weissbier brune comme Franziskaner sait si bien les faire. Bouteille 50cl, V&B Grenoble.

PowY (295) - - NOV 1, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy grey-brown with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly yeasty with some lightly roasted malty notes (maple syrup) and spices. Light to medium watery body with average carbonation. Very light bitterness. The taste is rather flat, cardboard some malt, nutty. Rather boring.

Kedvencem a dunkelweiss, ezzel mellé nem trafálsz. Igyál-egyél eleget, salátát is, ne csak meleget.

kaserov (284) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 26, 2016
Color marrón caramelo, medianamente turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco algo sucio de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media pero insuficiente en boca (textura acuosa, le iría mejor algo más de efervescencia en boca). Aroma a trigo, malta tostada, levadura. Más complejo y apetecible que el de la Hefeweizen. Sabor a trigo, también malta tostada, fresco, sencillo y con mucho carácter. Un acierto.
