Almost dark enough to not recognize the wheat texture. Just a hint of gold at the bottom of weizen glass. Very unique aroma, as the helles version of this beer is unique other Hefe-Weizens. The darker malts play well with wheat.

Most dunkelweizen are covering up a sour aspect of that breweries hefe. Franziskaners hefe is very clean to beging with. And the unique aromas are ever present.

One of the best of style that nobody seems to love.

A - Cloudy dark, dark brown with a slightly off-white head that disippates quickly and leaves a very short lace.

S - Much like their Hefe but more subdued and with some malty notes.

T - More subdued banana and clove that is very adeptly balanced by malted grain. Hops are just there.

M - Full yet a little crisp somehow.

O - A really well balanced weissebier. I prefer my dunkels to be a bit lighter brown. All in all, this was just a good, well-rounded beer.. I was hoping it would be a great hot summer lawn mowing beer. I'll probably drink it as an early autumn refresher, though.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Murky mahogany-brown pour with a quickly fading one finger off-white head with decent lacing. Nutty, earthy nose with hints of banana, brown bread, clove, and a subtle vinous character. The taste follows suit with lots of malty brown bread up front along with hints of banana, clove, toffee, apple, tobacco, molasses, and a subtle vinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly chewy with medium carbonation and good balance. Overall, a solid interpretation with good drinkability.
