Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel

All of Franziskaner’s weiss beer products – Hefe-Weisse Hell and Hefe-Weisse Dunkel – are top-fermentation beers noted for their agreeable carbonation levels and zesty wheat flavour. The consistently high quality of our products makes Franziskaner weiss beers a refreshing taste sensation of a special sort. All Franziskaner weiss beers are brewed in strict adherence to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516.

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on August 31, 2010

B / 3.5

Appearance – Very cloudy orange tinted brown color with a lot of off-white head. Even with a slow pour you’ll have to wait several times for the head to go down so you can continue to pour. The head does dissipate, although slowly, and leaves very little lacing.

Smell – Definitely a wheat beer, has a hint of apples, not a lot going on here but it improves a little as it warms.

Taste – A bready malt with some tart fruit. Just a hint of caramel, which balances things pretty well.

Mouthfeel – Smooth and creamy with very low carbonation.

Drinkability – It’s an ok beer, but nothing amazing. I wouldn’t drink it again.
