Delicious, sweet aroma, with neutral characteristics to the palate amazes me since the ABV is 5%. Hazy for its pour and banana like nuances really compliments savory (with pasta) as well as dessert dishes (like a bananas foster). I love the Bavarian purity law, as it shows in the quality of the brew. I would be hard pressed to find a similar beer in this category at this rating. You always remember your first Fraziskaner.

A. Hazy light orange to dark straw appearance with a white, puffy head that slowly recedes. Classic looking.

S. Hefe notes of spice, yeast and malt.

T. Banana and clove followed by bready malt.

M. Light bodied with nice spritz of tingly carbonation on back end.

O. Easy drinking beer that would be great on hot days.

I completely agree with Bucannon XC5. I have had this beer a few times in the past but I was just enjoying and not rating. A German friend introduced me to the beer, I was much more impressed then than now but it is still an interestingly good beer. Drinking alal these great PNW craft beers lowered it's standing a bit with me.
