Franziskaner Weissbier

Stan suppose to buy this in carrefour @ S$2 per bottle, he told me that somehow the cashier mistaken that the beer is having promotion of buy 1 get 1, and he ended up paying only S$6 for bottles of 6.

Some interesting wording on the back label, ‘Naturally cloudy Munich wheat malt brewed in full accordance with the Bavarian “Purity Law” of 1516′ and incase you are wondering about the upside down front label, no, this is not a defect bottle, because the rest 5 are the same as well.

Had a wonderful dinner at night, curry fish head, vegetable stew and poached chicken, felt thirtsy after the meal due to the extra hot chilli sauce I dipped with the poached chicken, lucky I have 2 chilled and ready in the fridge, took out one of them and drank straight from the bottle. Didn’t really pay much attention to the taste on the first gulp, but wow, it’s refreshing. Took a beer glass and poured the rest into it, cloudy, rusty light brown, rather lifeless colour, definately not a looker, may be a tiny little zesty hint on the nose, there aren’t any aroma on the palate except for some iron taste and some more of it in the super short finish, tiny little bit of pamelo too.  Overall, it’s light-bodied and smooth.

Well, for a just S$1 per bottle of weissbier, I would say that this is not bad at all, even for S$2 I am also fine with it, I ever tried some S$2+ beer from Holland and Belgium and they are not even close to this. However, I do notice some yeast settlement toward the end of the pouring and the metalic taste I get from the beer, don’t really like it.

    Not many restaurant sell this beer in M’sia, I still haven’t find it in any hypermarket. They sell this around RM24+ per pint bottle. This is the hefe weissbier, weiss mean white, I don’t know why is called white when the beer colour is richer then most of it. I do enjoy this beer of course can’t compare this with other of our favourite like luwig konig or weihenstephen. The after taste is also not that strong. But for S$1 or S$2 each, I would said, this is sure a good buy!

    ok, no offense. I think you should go down singapore to try some other good beer like paulaner and hoegaarden. For weissen beer there are still a lot of choice there, Franziskaner is a good start to weissen beer. Cheers!!!

    Guess what…..I actually got it at Giant. One bottle left on the shelve and I grabbed it. It has been sitting in my fridge for a week now. Waiting for the right time to pop the cork.
