Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse

Originating in southern Germany, hefeweizen is an unfiltered, cloudy weissbier (wheat beer), typically with the mash consisting of 50% wheat or more. It is brewed with yeast that produces unique phenolic flavors of banana and cloves with an often dry, tart edge and some spiciness. Hefeweizen typically has low bitterness and a moderate level of alcohol, usually between 4% and 6% ABV with some rare examples of 7% or higher.
