Franziskaner Weissbier - 1st Nov 2020



“Crisp, malty Franziskaner is a true classic among German Wheat Beers”

 

The original Franziskaner Weissbier (wheat beer) from Bavaria, Germany from the legendary Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu brewery is a definite classic among fans of authentic German beers! Fruity, malty, and elegantly hopped – Franziskaner Weissbier is only brewed in Munich according to Bavarian Purity Law from 1516, following a brewing recipe that has remained unchanged since.

 

The classic 5.0% alc/vol. Franziskaner Weissbier is a naturally unfiltered and elegant Bavarian wheat beer with a golden colour and a lush white foam. Its scent is aromatic and its flavour is richly packed with citrusy, grassy, herbal hops and a warm, bready cereal malt character followed with delicate bitterness. Due to its higher carbonic acid content, Franziskaner Weissbier is particularly sparkling with a lively carbonation that results in a superb thirst-quenching refreshment.

 

Suitable for all occasions, the naturally cloudy Franziskaner Weissbier is just the thing you need for a relaxing break after work, at the bar, or even at home, German-style. It’s also the ideal choice of drink for food pairing with fish or red meat dishes – preferably straight from the grill! If you’re not convinced yet, treat yourself to a fresh bottle of Franziskaner Weissbier paired with our delicious steaks and sausages at Huber’s Bistro!

 

Franziskaner’s Pouring Ritual

 

Every serving of Franziskaner Weissbier should follow these steps to achieve the ultimate Bavarian Weissbier experience:

 

1.                   Franziskaner should always be served at 6oC in its own unique glass which helps to preserve the beer’s aroma and create the perfect foamy head.


2.                   To fully appreciate the flavour of Franziskaner, first rinse the glass thoroughly with cool water, and check if the water runs uniformly down the entire surface.


3.                   When pouring, first hold the glass at a 45o angle and gradually straighten the glass. But don’t pour the whole bottle! Leave a rest of the beer in the bottle and gently swirl it. This way, the yeast can spread evenly helping to create a perfect foam head.


4.                   Add the rest of the beer by pouring it vertically into the glass. Now you can enjoy your wonderfully fresh Franziskaner Weissbier!

Franziskaner’s wheat beers from Bavaria, Germany tell a rich history in their flavour, dating back to the oldest privately-owned brewery in Munich in 1363!

 

The origins of ‘Weissbier’ themselves go back to ancient times, when the art of brewing became a privilege of the Bavarian ruling noblemen in the Middle Ages. The name Franziskaner itself is derived from a Franciscan monastery, in which the oldest privately owned brewery in Munich was founded next to. This is why the quality of Franziskaner Weissbier is exemplified by a monk on every bottle; the monk is a key symbol for Franziskaner’s brewing expertise and tradition, which is associated with not only deep mastery, but also calmness and serenity.
