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.

Dark yellow and hazy in color with an ample frothy head. Aroma is yeast and bannana. Flavor is wheat, a little spice and bannana. Finish is smooth. An excellent wheat.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Depending on the pour, cloudy or clear; pale yellow with an orange twinge; white, frothy head; nice lace, with interesting arches. Body is light; carbonation is mild; but it has an underlying richness. Gentle malt flavors -- bready and yeasty, with notes of buttery crackers. Hops are light, but have nice aromas; drying finish. Faint notes of sweet banana and dried clove. Mild bitterness in the aftertaste; light salt. Overall, it doesnít hit you over the head with flavor, but itís balanced, nicely made, and pleasant to drink.

This beer was flat out gross, tasted like piss, I really canít believe anybody would like this. I had about 6 people all sip it to see if there was something wrong with me, everyone agreed it was awful.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow pour. Big frothy head. Classic yeasty citrusy aroma. Taste is a fantastic mix of spice, banana and just enough malt, with a slight crispness and hoppy bite finish. There is nothing to blow you away here, nothing you havenít tasted before, except it is all done at a very high level - a wonderful beer. Thanks for sharing jercraigs.

Plenty of flavour I felt the cloudiness added to the taste. Must be poured correctly otherwise the head gets too big. The Weihenstephaner glasses are good because they self swirl the sediment as you pour.

Aromatic , plenty of banana , yeast notes . Large head . Drinkable , but a bit harsh for me .Maybe all that carbonation placed negative effect .

Poured a murky yellowish amber with a tall white head which left a lacing on the glass. Fruity and spicy hefe aroma. Taste is mostly hefe spiciness but not as heavy as olther hefeís Iíve had. Very refreshing.

Clear color with one beautiful adherent foam. Not much dense one but in the complex very balanced.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Crunchy wheat biscuits ebb and flow through elegant cloves... Minty leaves and citrus zest spice up the plump banana bread and angel cake... A generous, complex and nuanced Weizen which truly deserves all of its accolades...
