Franziskaner Dunkel

About the Bier

This bier impresses with its refreshing yet aromatic character.  Franziskaner Dunkel is unfiltered and presents naturally cloudy thanks to suspended protein and yeast sediment.

This bier is copper-coloured with a fluffy, creamy, latte-like head. The aroma displays a slight smoky character, phenolics and an intriguing blend of mocha-iced coffee.

The palate is malty sweet up front with a rich mid-palate and grainy wheat texture.  The finish is fine and persistent with almost no bitterness, leaving you thirst-quenched yet ready for another sip!

A Bavarian speciality and a real treat for wheat bier connoisseurs.


The Franziskaner Dunkel is served on tap, in 300mL, 500ml and 1L servings.

What I’d consider to be a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde bier – and one of my personal favourites! The Franziskaner Dunkel is a complex bier with two distinct personalities: one complex & intriguing, the other light hearted and irreverent.
