Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse

Distinctly better than average offering, true to the style and delightfully refreshing.

Pour is classically cloudy gold, with the distinctive, large rocky foamed head. Very little lacing though that somewhat surprised me.

Fruit aromas start this and overshadow the expected clove and herbal notes. I don’t a large amount of the classic banana, but more general fruitiness which is a nice change from the norm. This is a much smoother and sweeter experience than I was expecting. In fact, as the beer goes down the glass it reminds me less of a Hefe and more of a quality lager.

Nice level of carbonation and smoothness lend this beer a good drinkability.
