4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A beer that I’ve claimed over the past few years as one of my top ten favorites, tonight’s beer is the Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier. Brewed in Bavaria, Germany, Weihenstephan’s label states that it’s the oldest brewery in the world. Records date back to the year 768 with documents mentioning a hop garden, but the brewery was officially licensed in 1040.
The 17oz bottle pours at a clear burnt-amber color, with a nice thick ivory white foam on top. The foam lingers for several minutes, and leaves behind a mild lacing as it recedes. The aromas are bright and distinct, with plenty of lemon, orange peel, banana, and spices. I absolutely love the aromas on this little Hefeweiss!
On the palate, the Weihenstephaner is flavorful and complex, yet so incredible easy to drink! The citrus and banana is right up front in my mouth, but not far behind is the spice and just a touch of alcohol. This is an absolutely delicious brew that I highly recommend for anyone who ever considered those mediocre mass-produced imitations.

Pours cloudy yellow with a creamy white head. Takes a while to pour because the head is so big. Aroma is fruity malt with citrus and bananna, spicy yeast profile with some cloves. Creamy mouthfeel. Light malty start with fruity notes. Some citrus flavors. Finishes with a spicy yeast and light clove . I am not at all a fan if this style but I could drink this one all summer .

From a bottle. Pours an orange-yellow and makes a thin white head. Aroma is of wheat and yeast. Tastes of citrus, light malt and wheat. A very good example of the Bavarian white genre.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of bananas and yeast, typical cloudy yellow color with a creamy white long lasting head, not too sweet and while the banana notes are clearly present I found the citrus to be more noticeable. Fades to a lightly better taste with a very nice after taste. I’m a Weissbier fan and this is one of my favorites.

Bottle. One the best in its style. Yellow-orange colored, hazy almost opaque with a full frothy white head it starts of as a delight for the eye. Rich aromas of banana and yeast play on the nose. However, the real distinction is the really balanced and harmonic composition once the Weisse touches the tongue. The taste light sweet. The rich flavors of fruit, yeast and wheat are embodied in a medium body with medium carbonation, witch keeps it refreshing and crisp. The mouth feel is very smooth and turns into a very just slightly bitter finish, which is followed by a great and really pleasant aftertaste. Strongly recommended.

Banana, citrus, hop, yeast.
Turbid golden beer with a white head.
Banana at the beginning and a bit of citrus at the end. The perfect balance is what makes this amazing.
Simply the best weizen quality-wise.

Banana, yeast, wheat, and hay. Hazy yellowish amber with a bright 1 cm, very creamy white head. There’s good retention and very little lacing.
Taste is banana, lemon, yeast, and a touch of pepper.
