3.83/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is a very foggy orange crowned by a seemingly permanent off-white head.

The smell is sweet, with yeast and fruits. Definite tones of cherry and citrus.

Creamy taste with banana flavours. Not as much carbonation as in for instance the Paulaner Hefe-weißbier, which perhaps make the Franziskaner hefe-weisse feel a little thinner in comparison.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, very drinkable. I would think this is a good beer for people who don't know that they really should like wheat beers.

A: Cloudy orangeish-yellow. Large head.

S: Banana, clove, smells great.

T: Just like it smells. Amazing. Some buttery notes. Just like a hefeweizen should taste.

M: Excellent mouthfeel, good session beer. Smooth, albeit light/watery but easy to drink.

O: I love this beer, definitely one of my favorites.
