I've rated this one before... a few months ago, before my reviewing skills have had a chance to develop. I still have a lot to learn, but I wanted to update this review with my updated abilities. Since that time, I've tried various hefes and compared them to Franziskaner.

I still rate this beer very high. As a matter of fact, this is one of my personal favorites. Months ago when I did the first review, I tried to cap my enthusiasm for this brew. I've decided to go all out, though, and let you all know this is truly a great brew. The appearance is good and cloudy...as a hefe should be. The smell is very aromatic... clean, "wheaty" and citrus-like. The taste is very clean, very crisp, and very good. The mouthfeel, like any good hefe, is smooth as silk/velvet. The drinkability on this brew is very high for me (5) because I could drink this stuff all day.

This brew and Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier are among the top brews I've had. They are definitely among the best hefes to try. On a side note, Fraziskaner is a bit cheaper per sixer than the Weihenstphaner. Here in Louisville, KY you can get Franziskaner for just under $7 a sixer, while the Weihenstephaner is about $10 per sixer. Both are worth every penny.
