COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing refreshes you more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 Lively golden/orange, glowing beer, with a foamy, well-sustained head - yeasty aroma, with notes of orange blossom honey, citrus, wildflowers, perfume/herbs, wheat, and a light nutty character - light yet creamy body - very subdued sweetness allows the herbal character and soft wheat notes to come through a lot more than in other hefes - yeasty, but not overly so, and the yeast combines with the grainy notes to give the beer a bready character, despite the fact that it remains light and refreshing throughout - very soft and subtle - phenolics come through just a bit, as do some light lemony notes, but herbs, flowers and wheat remain most prominent - this is an exceptional hefe, and one that I can’t believe I’ve taken so long to try.

Bottle. Pours a yellow-orange colour with a white head. Aroma is some perfumy yeasy, citrus, wheat and some herbs. Flavour is well-balanced and very mild wih some sweetness. Lots of wheat, some yeast, citrus and banana and a hint of malts. Very good indeed and presumably a perfect beer to go with lighter foods.

Dark yellow and hazy with a medium sized white head. Wheaty banana flavours. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Quite a sweet finish. Pretty nice. - 500ml bottle.

btree (14) - New York, New York, USA - APR 10, 2008
this is one of THE classic hefe weissbiers out there (also try Schneiderweisse). Delicious fruity, citrus aroma. Substantial, yeasty head and dingy orange color. Hefty mouthfeel. crisp follow-up from the carbonation. later swallows leave it mellow but still complex due to the wheat. It balances a variety of foods. Especially simple Chinese dishes.

Santa cerveja. Cremosa e intensa. Sabor marcante, com toques de banana, cereais e frutas cítricas. Ainda bem que já chegou ao Brasil e está com preço bom. O problema de quem bebe uma Weihenstephaner é que nunca mais vai beber uma Skol.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com) As I recall, one of the best hefeweizens I’ve had. Not being a fan of hefeweizens, this was interesting with flavors of vanilla and light citrus.

Pours a cloudy golden with a thick frothy white head, yeasty aroma has notes of coriander, vanilla, and banana. Tastes of wheat and banana with a bit of citrus and clove; crisp slightly seet finish. Great creamy mouthfeel. This is an excellent beer; I’m sure I’ll be stocking up on this for the summer.

Orangish in color with a big foamy white head. Aromas of clove and a lot of bananas. Taste is banana with wheat. Very refreshing in the taste.

On Tap. Pours a deep cloudy amber with one the nicest heads I’ve ever seen on a beer. The aroma slight citrus and banana with some subtle floral notes. The flavor is superb. Clean, dry citrus, banana, a sweet yet refreshing floral component, nice wheat/malt backbone to support it all. The palate is equally excellent, on the thick and creamy side for a hefe, but with just enough carbonation to keep the beer truly refreshing. This is a really great beer. Go drink one now.
