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.

Orange-gold with large 2-inch white head. Strong nose of creamy wheat. Taste is same as nose with a full mouthfeel and a hint of orange and banana. Extremely drinkable; alcohol is well hidden. Medium carbonation and medium body. Very good.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle. Hazy gold with bg white head. Nose of faint lemon, banana, yeast, pepper, and some sour wheat. Flavor is a nicely balanced combination of all of these, quite spicy on the tongue, and with a biting carbonation and clean finish. Very tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 12 oz bottle I believe. Aroma is very nice and yeasty. Taste is great. Smooth and refreshing and with great flavor. Second sample: liter with vi at the most fantasy German bar in NYC. Ours a deep amber body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is thick banana and clove. Mouthfeel is thick with notes of wheat, banana, clove, yeast, and spice.

Pint Bottle $2.99 Binny’s Orland Park Hefes aren’t my favorite style but I’ve been in the mood for one today and what better way to go than Weihenstephaner? Pours a hazy yeast laden golden. The entire glass fills with big carbonation bubbles that speed to the creamy bright white head that forms on the pour. Leaves moderate lacing after each sip. A very nice looking hefe. The smell is 100% hefe. The benchmark for others. Green bananas have a big spot in the aroma with clove coming in a close second, very spicy. Possibly some white pepper. Solid wheat twang backbone with a drop or two of lemon juice. Smells great. Flavor is spot on with the aroma. The banana is leaning more toward banana bread as opposed to green bananas. Clove with a twangy wheat backdrop and the lemon shows again.. Lighter bodied with a highly carbonated creamy mouthfeel. Very thirst quenching. On a warm summer day like today this is about one of the easiest drinkers to find. Thirst quenching and enjoyable. To me Weihenstephaner is the pinnacle all other hefes try and reach. Like I said not one of my favorite styles but when I’m in the mood none are better than this. 7/16/07

LinusStick (3201) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
The best German Hefe I’ve had hands down. Aroma was a beautiful thick banana with a hint of lemon. Pour was a near perfect cloudy gold with an inviting 2 finger white head. But the taste...woah the taste. Sharp tartness and banana with heavy yeast tones and a delicious citrusy note. Very heavy carbonation...tongue biting carbonation I call it. Almost perfect!

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Nice fruity aroma. Banana. A little citrus. Clove. Pours a nice hazy orange with a yellowish bubbly head. Flavor is wheat, yeast, fruity esters. Lemon and banana are extremely prevalent. It finishes with a nice lemon flavor and a spritzy carbonation. This is a nice hefe. Damn good.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Smells of yeast, fresh cut grass, mild wet pine, rust and ripe banana peel. Very cloudy, with a thick head and a lasting lace. Lots of carbonation. Tastes of yeast and hay with a nice grainy orange taste, all in appropriate harmony. Palate is a little shy, but that is the only setback.
