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.

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 hefe’s I’ve 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...

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2008 2008-07-01. Bottle from LCB0. Hazy golden yellow body with a good sized white head. Yeasty lightly estery aroma, muted touch of alcohol is quite pleasant. (7+) Flavour is moderate, but complex. Sweet underlying pale malt, yeasty weiss esters, touches of banana and spice. Smooth medium bodied palate suits it wonderfully. Just really nice. 7/5/8/4/16 - 4.0 <;P>;November 2004. Bottle. Hazy golden body, nice big fluffy white head. Touch of spicey clove in the aroma, small notes of banana esters. Pleasantly effervescent palate is rather nice. Flavour has some clove, though it is slightly muted from the aroma, and a pleasant wheaty tartness throughout. Thanks M&J for bringing this back from NYC. I have now had the top 3 rated wheat bers as of right now, yay me! 7/4/7/4/17 - 3.9

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 This beer is excellent. The aftertaste has a slight burning sensation which I liked. A more bitter Hefeweizen then I have had in the past. The best Hefeweizen I have had to date.

My favorite Hefeweizen. Has a much more pleasant mouthfeel than the others I’ve tried, along with more wheat taste.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Draught. Hazy stained wood. Fairly subtle and fruity aroma with a touch of cloves and vanilla. Flavor is very big for its size. Notes of dried banana, cloves (lots), vanilla and nutmeg. Very cloying. I was looking for more of a hearty wheat taste which just simply wasn’t present.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Huge cloves, bananas and wheat in the aroma. Orange-tan coloured body with generous off-white head that lasts nicely. Cloves and bananas and wheat figure prominently with yeasty citrus tartness. Bitterness in the finish balances nicely. Mouthfeel is engagingly prickly on the insides of the cheeks and is wonderfully refreshing. Bottle enjoyed with martinT and Rastacouere.
