Franziskaner – Weissbier

GS6A9156

The Franziskaner brewery can be dated back to 1363 where it is described in texts as the brewery town at monastery near Munich, Germany. In 1841 a huge and completely  new brewery was build in Lilienberg, a town outside Munich. In 1922 the Spaten brewery fusioned with the Fraziskaner brewery and they became Spaten-Franziskaner-Leistbräu AG. In 2005 the brewery was bought by the large InBev cooperation.

The unfiltered yellow and orange beer fills the glass good and look good.

Medium head with a fine top.

Medium sweet fruit aroma that is really delicious.

Good CO2 and good fruit. Balanced with a light sweetness and fruit in the after taste.

Overall rating is 81 / 100

I bought this unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0,0%.

Beautiful orange colour.

The head is medium with a fine top, it disappears quickly.

The aroma is wheated and have porridge to it.

Good CO2, sweet wheat taste, light and watery to some degree, but still it maintains a balance in the taste.

Overall rating 72 / 100

Schneider Weisse – Tap 11 – Unsere Leichte Weisse

GS6A9155

Georg I Schneider was the creator of the Schneider Weisse Original recipe, which is still used today. Two-hundred years ago, wheat beer could only be brewed by the Bavarian royal family in their breweries. In 1872, King Ludwig II discontinued brewing wheat beer due to a steady decline in sales.

Georg I Schneider was sold the exclusive right to brew wheat beer. Today, Georg VI Schneider is running the brewery in Kelheim, which the family acquired in 1927 and has remained the Schneider Weisse brewery to this day. It is the oldest wheat beer brewery in Bavaria. Wheat beer has been brewed there without interruption since its founding in the year 1607.

Yellow and unfiltered beer.

Small head that disappears quickly.

The aroma comes off with a light fruit and a hint of wheat.

Good CO2, light and sweet fruit, fresh and easy to drink, as easy as it is to drink it is also a little too light with a thin and too short after taste.
