Beer Review: Flensburger Weizen

Weizen 5.1%
Dark golden colour, very clear with a nice fluffy head. Nice strong wheat malt aroma dominates. Yeast aroma to the fore but not sweet bannana that you would expect with the style. Highly carbonated and medium bodied, not very smooth. A little cloying and the yeast characteristic is more spicy than sweet. Not for me, plenty of nicer weissbiers on the market, maybe this is a type of weizen that is different to standard weissbiers but I don't like it. Would not recommend this beer, instead look for Franziskaner or Unertl.
