served from green 33 cL bottles...
didn't see a freshness date and the green bottles and shady store i bought these from made me worry. it turned out to be a fairly fresh-tasting batch. no oxidation. super billowy head that exploded out the bottle. head receded to a nice creamy collar. beautiful cloudy golden color. aroma of cloves, bananas and fresh bread. nice nose!
taste was quite nice. very refreshing sweetness. the yeast really do their job in this beer and impart a nice banana/clovey goodness into it. lots and lots of yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle should be swirled right in for a mroe robust yeasty flavor, if that's your preference. mouthfeel may have suffered a tiny bit -- i don't know when these were bottled, but it very well may have been a long time ago. lacked a tiny bit of crisp bite in the mouthfeel. overall, a very very drinkable beer. a classic hefeweiss. still haven't found an american version that even approaches franziskaner.
