Comments: The Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse beer is similar to to the Blue Moon White Ale in color.  Its has a bouquet of light bananas, oranges and cloves.  It has the same bananas and cloves taste though, unlike some Hefeweizens, is not very sweet.  The finish is slightly bitter.  The difference between the bottle and the tap in regards to taste is as expected.  From the bottle the flavors are not as vibrant as that from the tap but it is still an amazing beer and a one of my personal favorite Hefeweizens.  - BN
