Bottled. Nice thick creamy head on this puppy! Aroma of banana clove and honey. Flavor has a yeast start with a flower type finish. A nice Hefe, I’d like to try this again as it came highly recommended by a beer guru friend.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange, rusty body. Cloudy, big head. In the nose - yeast, citrus fruits. Flavour has usual wheat beer flavours - yeast to the fore with candy sweetness, citrus fruit and corriander spice. I was a bit let down by this beer, considering the rep its got. Flavours were ok, but it seemed a bit thin & watery to me. I still think its alright, but I prefer Erdinger, which seemed to have more body. However I’ve drunk that on draft, the Weihenstephaner was from a bottle.

Bottle. Orange colour with big frothy white head. Orange and some coriander in the aroma. Very creamy on the palate. Tastes like bottled sunshine (and fruity grains). Very refreshing and harmonious. Brilliant hefe.

0.5l bottle purchased in a Spar in Graz
Hazy orange colour, big white head that went away fast. Nice aroma. Lemon, cloves, honey, apple, banana... even some hops I reckon. Taste.. lovely mouthfeel.. Pleasantly sweetish. Lemon, cloves, yeast, banana, some apple, pleasant lacticity. Extremely weak traces of.. hops I guess near the end. Damn refreshing. And here I am rating the best hefe I’ve had and I find myself not being capable of writing much.. It’s lighter than some, sure, but in this light definitely doesn’t mean tasteless. A superb hefe.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy deep straw gold color, topped by an inch or so of white foam. The head receds quickly to just a cap, but this cap provides a fantastic coating of lace. Bready aroma, with wheat and bread yeast, clove and some other spice - maybe light ginger.
Dry wheat flavor that is actually very full, complimented by nice yeast, mild clove, and some other dry spice that definitely is not ginger. It reminds me of fresh borage - a little peppery, grassy and herbal, even a little flowery citrus tang. Probably its just the hops, I know no spices or adjuncts are added.
Good medium body, full carbonation, lingering dry aftertaste with just a hint of dried banana.

I just don’t like german beer is what it boils down to. Granted, i drank this in the middle of winter. Had it been during the summer, and the beer was served extremely cold, at least it would be refreshing. The wheat was very prevalent. Very crisp mouthfeel, but very muddled flavor

Had this on draft at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA over the Christmas holidays and it blew me away. Exceeded all expectations I had since most hefe’s have tasted the same to me in the past. This has clearly become my favorite of the sytle in a hurry. Perfect, unfiltered appearance and the most lovely marshmellow-like aftertase on the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Botte. Pours a cloudy orange with a big white head. Smells of fruits, mainly bananas, and spice. Very crisp and clean, but it really doesn’t do a ton for me, maybe different if had just got done mowin the lawn, but yeah, its january. But overall a pretty typical heffe.
