Weissbier Kristallklar is distinguished by the same impeccable classic composition of components.
Weissbier is distinguished by its crystal clearness, high carbonation and light golden color. A bouquet of a foamy drink is interesting with an easy bias in the confectionery theme. At the heart of the aroma lie pear and banana notes. The taste is fresh with a slight sourness. It surprisingly combines the bread and fruit nuances. In the aftertaste, the ball is ruled by a barely perceptible hop hopper and grain notes.

Foam drink is brewed with observance of all the best traditions of brewing in Germany. It perfectly quenches thirst and at the same time almost does not cause intoxication.
In addition, its distinctive feature is the low caloric content of beer. In 100 grams of Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Leicht beer contains only 25 kilocalories. This circumstance makes this variety extremely demanded among the fans of the foam drink, who are accustomed to watching the slenderness of the figure.
The Hefe-Weissbier Leicht has a golden color. In its aroma there are light citrus notes. The taste is light and fresh, filled with malt and fruit halftones.

To date, in the category of non-alcoholic beer, Hefe-Weissbier Alkoholfrei, without a doubt, is one of the best existing products.
The technology of production of this beer is changed only in terms of removing from it an excessive amount of alcohol. At the same time, the foamy drink retains the wonderful aroma and taste of traditional German beer.
How to drink properly?
There are several elementary rules, the adherence to which allows you to get maximum pleasure from the tasting of Franziskaner beer.
1. The frothy beverage should be cooled to a temperature of 6 degrees Celsius. Only in this case you can enjoy the fullness of its flavor and taste.
2. Before pouring the beer over the glasses, a bottle of Franziskaner must be rolled over the table for 15-20 seconds. Such actions will help get rid of large gas bubbles and pick up a sediment from the bottom of the container, which contains the most useful substances.
The history of this brewing mark originates in the distant 1363 year. In the historical documents of that era, it was attested that a certain Ger Seidel Waterstarter was the master of the brewery, which was located in the glorious city of Munich near the Franciscan monastery.
In the fifties of the XIX century, the enterprise becomes the property of Augustine Sedlmaier – the son of the owner of the brewery Shpaten.
In 1865, the brewery was named Franziskaner-Leist.
In 1935, an actual enterprise logo was created today, depicting a burly Franciscan monk armed with a large beer mug. This trademark belongs to the brush of the artist Ludwig Holwain.
