On-Tap into the Infamous Tall Franziskaner Glass

Appears a nice dark gold with about a half a finger's worth of head. Smelled like a typical Hefeweizen with a strong citrus scent. The citrus is most apparent in the taste but it balances well with the wheatiness of the beer. A great beer for the summer which is why it's so popular under the shade of tree in the German Biergartens.

12 oz bottle served in a weizen glass:

A: Cloudy orange in color, a nice off white head at the top that stays for a while, a nice coating of lacing around the glass as you drink.

S: Honey , lemon , yeast, A nice note of citrus fruits throughout.

T: Very well balanced brew, just like the nose with more of a wheat taste and slight bitterness thats perfect.

M: Smooth, light bodied, nice amount of carbonation.

D: A great summer brew, enjoyed this beer a lot.

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass by freshness date.

A:
Hazy yellow amber color with massive fluffy white head, the retention is very good by slowly dissipating to tight everlasting foamy layer covering on top. Some clingy laces manifest upon the descendent path. Carbonation is actively high.

S:
Mellow fruity, estery note contain banana, apple, citrus. Rich malty comes to support with bread, a bit spice from clove and phenol.

T:
Fruity ester leads by banana and citrus. Malt lends some sweet and bread touch supporting. Spicy phenolic adds more complexity along with ghost-like bitterness from hop.

M:
The body is medium, smooth mouthfeel with some good crisp from decent carbonation.

O:
Harmoniously running through yet smooth without fail, it’s definitely one of the examples of a good traditional Hefe.
