Well they sure as hell make good-looking beers. The heads on the Franziskaner range are always formidable and last longer than Wagner’s Ring cycle. This one is no exception, and it’s as kristall-klar as you’d expect for the style. Lovely bananas’n’cream aroma with classic clove notes and some nose-prickling pepper. Very true to style. The flavour mix is more of the same - mashed banana, bubblegum and some clove bite to the finish. It’s quenching, with some late lemon candy sourness. The carbonation is a little hard for my taste but that’s a minor criticism. Overall, a very good kristallweizen. (500ml bottle from Camperdown Cellars, Darlinghurst. Best before Jan 07)

Bottle from Germany. Bit boring, starts off with some nice citrus notes, but then meanders off into nothing much.

I don’t like light clair beer that much but this one is very nice to go with meals or snacks. I enjoyed it.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2009 Light yellow color. Nice foamy head. Fruity aroma with a touch of yeast. Yeast dominates the flavor with some banana notes. Very refreshing and extremely drinkabel beer. Nice !

Wow. Holy bananas! Poured with a huge white head and a super fresh, yeasty (e.g. ripe bananas) and malt aroma. In the mouth it is fresh and jumpy with a nice finish, but you’ve got to love sour beers. Towards the end of the 500 mL bottle I got overwhelmed by sour, but the first 2/3rds of the bottle was very nice.

Clean taste. Not as much flavour as I wanted. Could do with more aroma too. Yeasty and nice head. Bit like a thin Duvel. But drinkable.A Weiss for lager drinkers
