look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

It pours a pale, murky yellow color with a thick, fluffy white head. The aroma kind of off for a wheat beer but not bad, i picked up the typical wheat, banana, grass and lemon but it seemed kind of weak. Tastes kind of sour buth with lemon and grass and a hint of banana. Feels thinner than it should with not enough carbonation. Not bad, but could be better.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

a- Cloudy yellow haze with an almost non-existent head that to me is unappealing and might make some not want to drink it.

s- Sour apple with a sweet finish. Simple and good, but I feel like they could have done a little more with the style.

t- Light sour sip followed by a sweet wheat finish with not even a hint of bitterness. It's delicious, but I just expect a little more variety.

m- An easy crisp smooth refreshing light beer. It feels like a beer should in the style.

o- If you are looking for a simple light sweet wheat beer Franconia Wheat Beer is the beer for you. Taste is king and it does have that.

Pouring to a yellow/gold color, this wheat beer has a nose of yeast and light wheat. The body of the beer is cloudy and it does contain some sediment in the bottom of each bottle. There is little foam on this beer, even with a strong pour.

Franconia Wheat has a taste you would expect in this type of beer: Wheat, yeast, banana, bread, and some light spice. The beer is easy- drinking, low in bitterness, and makes a good choice when you want beer, but prefer something a little easier on the palate and stomach.

One quality about this beer that surprised me is its lack of much foam. Even an aggressive pouring effort doesn’t get the bubbles flowing like you would expect. The other lesson learned is that, due to the sediment in the bottom of each bottle, it is best to pour out most but not all of the bottle, shake what is left, then pour into your glass to better distribute the yeast. Not only will the beer look better in your glass, it will taste better too.

A good hefeweizen can really hit the spot and Franconia has created a good tasting hefeweizen with this product. It isn’t going to blow you away with unique flavor attributes or anything else, but it does have what it takes to please the palate and it makes a good session hefeweizen.
