Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse 16 Oz

Member Review by wine lover77:

this imported hefe-weissbier from Germany has a cloudy appearance and a mandarin orange colour a heavy head that dissipates quickly yet the carbonation throughout the beer lasts long and strong, a very peculiar carbonation; you cant feel the carbonation, it seams to turn to a airy substance almost immediately. the nose is of citrus! and slight coriander. very slight yeast to the nose. the taste matches the nose; quite citrus, lemon and slight orange. this type of beer i normally enjoy with a slice of lemon squeezed and drooped in to the glass. though for the purpose of tasting, this time i have not. though this beer tastes of citrus their is very low acidity, perhaps this is why this beer can be appreciated ten fold with a slice of lemon. light, light-medium body. very short finish. tastes hollow; first taste is pleasant yet with in seconds the bitterness sets to the back of the tongue. tastes off-dry to semi sweet. all in all an okay beer,... call me crazy but for some reason i have a craving for fried calamari, and I think it would be an out standing pairing, especially with the added lemon slice in the beer, i think the added acidity from the lemon would cut through the fatty mouth feel the fried calamari would leave, plus, what is most fried calamari garnished with, a lemon. classic :) if any one tries this beer with the lemon and fried calamari, please let me know i would love to hear what you think of my pairing :)
