Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse

24 Jul

A wheat beer with citrus aroma, hints of orange and a bit of sweetness from the malt in the flavor department.  The beer is simple and refreshing, but after having different Hef’s the last few years, I’ve fallen out of love with it, and I think you can find other Hefeweizen with character that will be superior to the Franziskaner; however, don’t pass on it if someone offers you a pour, it’s a good quality beer, just not a title holder in my book.

A little history on me and the Franziskaner Hefeweizen.  This beer and style is one I began to drink often as I had yet to become adventurous in my beer choices during my transition from mass produced to craft beers.  It was easy to pick up the Franziskaner as my local grocery store always had it in stock, so this specific Hef and me go way back.  A Hefeweizen is not complex in flavor, which is why I introduce it to beer drinkers from the insipid aisle, and more recently my brother, who thoroughly enjoyed it.  I would recommend and say that this is a safe route to take for anyone that would like to try a new style of beer; introduce your palate to a sip that wraps around your tongue, and not something that washes down easily.

    Since I’m not a big fan of the hef I rarely have one in the fridge. I may have to take your advice and keep one around to visitors,
