Franziskaner is my go-to. What a really flavorful, stellar beer. It's like something out of the Middle Ages, and that is a good thing. I feel like a Gregorian monk when I drink this stuff.

Draught poured into a Franziskaner Weissbier glass:

Appearance: Deep bronze, almost light honey colored, with a pristine, beautiful shade of Germanic awesome. An off-white head that is less than a finger's width, quickly receding into lacey edges on the glass like a Byzantine tapestry.

Aroma: Faint, bitter sweet, slightly citrus undertones -- not overpowering. It is very inviting.

Taste: A rich wheat with a fruity aftertaste, no maltiness and ever so slightly hoppy. It lures you in with its deeply embedded, earthly goodness.

Mouthfeel: Slightly oily on the tongue, but rolls off nicely, with some biting carbonation.

Overall: I fell in love with this stuff the moment I tasted it. Friar Tuck would drown himself in this heavenly beer. It's really, really one of the finer brews out there. Get it on draught if you can.
