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?

Bottle @ tasting at TomHendriksen. Thanks for sharing Inoven. Clear reddish color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste wheat, some sweetness, slightly banana and a hint of caramel. Average body and carbonation. Ok beer.

Fles gedeeld door Inoven, geprobeerd met Benzai en Roelzie1986. Het is een donkerroodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Het heeft een zacht zoete smaak.

Poured from the 0,5 liter bottle in home. Aroma is malt caramel , a bit toasted bread and nuts. A litlle bit of banana. Appearance is red-brown color, cloudy liquid, good white head. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, light sour.Palate is light body, lightly creamy texture ,lively carbonation, abrupt finish. If you like not filtered wheat beer, is your choice, but if I needed to choose, I prefer Franziscaner Naturtrub to this..

Bastante difrutable en líneas generales. En su liga es de lo que más me agrada; visualmente marrón, turbia, corona lograda, buen encaje, burbuja pequeña y compacta. Aroma predominan el pan tostado y las levaduras características, en boca apreciamos un dulzor tostado con matices a platano y el punto ácido que no pasa desapercibido. Se puede encontrar poca cosa mejor a mejor precio. ¡Salud!

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a reddish to purplish brown with a small to medium creamy white head and an aroma of banana, vanilla, roasty malts, yeast, earth and white chocolate. The tast is slight to medium sweet with a velvetty mouthfeel and a slightly hoppy finish. Very nice.
