Default Franziskaner dunkel....who's had this?

Have you had one of these? My god, they are delicious! well, I like them a lot. Wish they came in sixers instead of the european pint bottles. I just compared one to a Hacker-Schorr dark wheat and they Franzy blew it away in delicacy and fragrance....it made the HS seem cloying in it's caramel-maltiness.....atleast, I think it did. what say you, beer lovers?

good, but a lot of the places i have seen if obviously dont turn over the stock very well- find it at a good vendor, fresh and its lovely

have you had aventinus weizenbock? or tucher dunkel? if you havent, you should- i think they are both much better

try weihenstephaner vitus weizenbock- i dont think theres a better wheat beer made, period

I love this stuff. Dunkelweizen is my favorite wheat beer category. I also enjoy the Weihenstephaner dunkel, however this may be because I worship the normal Weihenstephaner hefeweißbier as one of the finest in the world.

I love the Franz Dunkel. I also suggest trying Aventinus Wheat Dopplebock if you haven't had it.

I need to try a real dunkel. The extract batch i made a few months ago sucked, and gave me horrendous farts.

I'm a big fan as well. I love Weissbiers, especially the dark ones.

Oh my God. Before I moved to Tennessee, my friends and I used to do lunch at the Sleeping Dog Tavern in Santa Fe and I'd order it all the time. If I could do nothing but drink Franziskaner Dunkel for the rest of my life, I would consider it a success.

Actually, I'd just settle for being able to find it here.
