Absolutly astounding! 1" white head, unfiltered golden color, spicy nose. The taste blows you away with spice and citrus not found in many beers available in the states. Light vanilla smooths out the spice and citrus and provides a clean finish. A truly amazing beer!

Great taste. Will need to purchase and have on hand when friends visit. Golden color, flavor had a very slight spice to it. Head hung around for a while.

Really excellent tasting, looking and smelling weiss. Extremely smooth beer with a head that lasts until the very end of the glass. Very refreshing as well.

pint bottle, pours excellent generous white head, condensing into a creamy froth and remaining until the last sip. Golden color is delightful. Perhaps a bit too effervescent, but a couple swirls calms it down nicely. At 5.4% abv, alcohol shouldn’t be as noticeable as it is. Overall, a great hefe with lots of banana and a bit of clove. Still, I’ll be sticking to franziskaner and paulaner.

This is the standard for a German Hefe-Weissbier. Beautiful color, wheat aroma, and a touch of sweetness to the taste. Went through many kegs at the last Oktoberfest. I’m always trying new beers at my store, but there is always a 6 pack of this in the frig. - Das ist dein scheiBe !!

Pours golden clear. Aroma is wheaty and sweet. Flavor is clean, crisp and refreshing, everything a hefeweizen should be. Arguably the best wheat beer I’ve ever tasted.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 oz. bottle. Classic hefeweizen scent: bubblegum, flowers, bananas, cloves, soap. The bubblegum scent in particular is extremely strong. Also a touch of new car smell. Pours a hazy, sparkling, relatively pale gold with a large amount of fluffy, uneven, off-white head. Produces loose but thick sporadic lacing. Sharp, lemony, yeasty flavor. Slight spice kick. Subdued flavors overall. Appetizing, but I wish the flavors were stronger. Little aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth in the palate. Moderate liveliness. Easy to drink. I decided to enjoy this prototypical summer refresher in celebration of a beautiful, sunny, 70 degrees late March Minnesota day. Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier is very much worthy of its classic status.

Bottle. Pours thick, hazy yellow (actually quite clear for a hefe). Head is white and nice creamy. Aroma is very sweet with quite a lot of banana. Very nice, full mouthfeel. Begins quite sweet and then turns a little bit bitter. Compared to other hefe’s it’s sweeter, but more well-rounded.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
boTTle....pours thick, spumous white head and cloudy honey-colored body with moderate carbonation. Pleasant aroma of banana esters, yeast, and fresh biscuits. Great depth of flavor with a pronounced fresh wheaty character, and notes of blood orange, some mild nuttiness( kinda like me). Continental hops make an appearance and lend some light but detectable flavor and bitterness. Mostly dry except for a touch of honey-like sweetness. Medium fullness on the tongue with some crisp and lively effervescence. Do a few more of these on a hot summer day...yep
