A: Cloudy brown. Head dissipates to a spotty lace.
S: The gingerbread aroma of a hefeweizen is a little muted in the dunkel offering. Smell is sweet, banana-ish.
T: Sweeter than a regular hefeweizen with a slightly sour finish.
M: Smooth thanks to the soft carbonation
O: One of my go to beers. Often when I can't decide what to get, I'll grab one of these. Sweet, malty hefeweisse.

Spaten Franziskaner Bräu dunkelweizen weissbier is my favorite beer ever, but it has always been hard to find. My specialty beer store had a time getting it, and they don't have it anymore. For the last year or so, World Market was the only place I could get it, and now they tell me it's been discontinued in that size. This site says its' still available. How do I get it?

Years ago as I was going thru craft beer education, wheat beers were my favorite and this beer topped my list. I have grown to be an open minded hop head and haven't had this beer in a few years and not much wheat beer in general. I'm not the best person to review wheat beers. This is a very good beer but I am sure there are others better made. Worth a try, works very well with a couple orange slices.
