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.

I love this beer. Itís so unbelievably smooth, itís like drinking velvet. Poors a foggy golden yellow with a thick white head. Unfiltered, which always adds to the appearance. Smells citrousy, tastes refreshing.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Thereís not a whole lot to say about the aroma and flavor except that this is very nearly a perfect German hefeweizen. Thereís wheat malt, banana, slight sweetness, moderate yeast, slight sourness, and everything is blended excellently. Dry finish, *just* slightly overcarbonated. I gather than this used to be more unique than it is now, with the proliferation of fairly similar beers, but itís still an exceptional example of the style. Great on a nice summer day (as it still is here in September, since this is Atlanta).

Weihenstephaner is my favorite imported German Weissbier. The color is a beautiful golden orange and the foggy yeast looks bright white instead of just dirty. It also holds a decent head for a while. Smells like half and half, plums. bananas and wheat. Iím drooling already. I noticed a lot of variation even between bottles in a six pack with this beer, which is unfortunate. This one is right on. Flavorís creamy and smooth. Good wheat flavor, but the sweetness blended with the citrus really steals the show. Almost wholesome to the point of my mouth not recognizing it as a beer. This is making me miss my military career in Germany. Mouth feel is a little too carbonated for the thickness of the beer. Thatís about the only miss here. Weihenstephaner is my go to wietzen, but I must reiterate that I found a terrible inconsistency in the freshness of this beer. If youíre not impressed with the bottle in front of you, try another. This is a sad state of affairs, but the pay off of a perfect Hefe is well worth it. Good luck!

Had on tap with a big slice of lemon. Poured to a nice hazy orange-red, with minimal head or lacing. Aroma was mostly wheat and bread, although some smell may have been overshadowed by the lemon. Taste was again, mostly wheat, bread and yeast, with a hint of clove spice. Finish was a little dry, though all and all, this was a good beer for a warm summer night.

PERFECT HEFE WEIZEN BEER. THE FRUIT AROMA AND FLAVOR IS THE BEST IN THIS VERY WELL BREWED DRINK. NEVER DRINK IT TOO COLD, YOUīLL LOSE THE BEST IT CAN GIVE YOU.

Thanks to YBSober for sharing this beer! This is by far the best Hefe Weizen Iíve ever had. Appearance: Pours a cloudy pale orange yellow color with a big bubbly head. (BTW donít shake this one up (to mix the sediment) or you may explode the beer all over a friends kitchen. (sorry Wayne ;) Smell: Boy, from the time this beer exploded all over the wall =) it had a fantastic aroma of lemon and wheat with a hint of fresh baked sweet bread. Taste: The front of the palate is full of wheat, yeasty lemon citrus, and a nice mildly sweet breadiness. There is a nice gentle bitter that balances this beer perfectly. Mouthfeel: Oh so smooth, a bit of a nice dry finish. Drinkability: The most drinkable wheat I have had yet. It is truly German and I highly recommend! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!
