Franziskaner Hefe Weissbier

Franziskaner

This wheat beer from Munich is really good, and it’s widely available in supermarkets, too. The brewery that makes it, Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu, dates back all the way to 1363. Now it’s part of the Spaten-Löwenbräu-Gruppe which is owned by giant brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev. (I guess this explains the wide distribution.) Franziskaner translates Franciscan, hence the monk on the label.

Franziskaner Hefe Weissbier
5% alcohol
Lively aromatic nose with sour cherry notes as well as citrus, yeast and a hint of malt. Pure, textured palate is rounded and appealing but also has some spicy bite. Tastes very natural and wholesome. 8/10
