Fanziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel
I bought one pint. It was on sale and it had "Spaten" on the label. Turns out Spaten is just the distributor.
It appears that "Hefe-Weisse" is german for "Yeast-White", apparently not to be confused with Hefeweizen. Since "Dunkel" is german for "Dark" in english this would be a "Yeast-White Dark" beer.
The only thing more confusing than the name was the taste. It looked and smelled good, but it was sour. Unless someone buys one for me, I won't be trying this beer again.
