Slightly cloudy with good head. Sweet and tasty in your mouth with no bitterness or after taste.

Appearance: Pour is a hazy and cloudy and darker straw colors with a big t finger head with great retention

Smell: Smell mlike malt with a fair presence of some cloves and banana withht citric presence, .

Taste: Banana presence and some slight bitterness in the back just balances it all out. This beer is high ion my list !

Mouthfeel: Body is between medium and light nd the carbonation is strong, without being shapr and it is smooth when it goes down

Overall: t. A awesome beer with great flavors; body is light so it weight me down. It is not highly watered down. I love Hefeweizen beer !

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.
