Franziskaner Weissbier is an exemplary beer for its category. It is the ultimate white beer in my opinion. It has a soft, mild flavor that isn’t bitter at all. In fact, I’d suggest this beer to anyone who doesn’t ordinarily choose beer because they don’t like bitter flavors. That’s not to say it has less flavor. It still has a gently sweet wheat taste that holds the attention without dominating the palate.

This beer pairs well with traditional German food of course and anything that’s not extremely spicy or strongly flavored.

Frafziskaner is near the very top of my list of favorite beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: very hazy, big fluffy white head, golden yellow with orange tint

Aroma: lemony citrus, banana, clove, light summery aroma,

Taste: balanced flavor, banana and subtle clove taste, with a malt backbone that really stands up without being overly heavy,

Mouthfeel: a little prickly but with a smooth finish, light-medium body

Overall Impression: A refreshingly light German hefe that is very well balanced and smooth to the swallow. Residual tingles remain in mouth beckoning for another swig.
