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.

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.

Bottled at Kaufland Knieliegen Karlsruhe. Excellent weizen. Cloves, banana, fruity sour on the nose. Beautifully cloudy hazy golden yellow with a bright white creamy head that lasts. Taste is sweet but excellently balanced with just enough bitterness. Maybe a little soft on the carbonation (it feels a little flat towards the latter half of a glass). Wonderful weizen surprisingly hard to find in Karlsruhe. :(

Aroma is clove, banana, sweet grains, yeast and light carbonation. Taste is quite sweet with a pale tartiness that matches exceptionally. Very well balanced and pleasant to drink. Appearance is a gold/orange cloudy body with a medium fluffy pearl head that retains very well.

Just the perfect example of a Hefeweizen. It really doesn’t get much better than this. The appearance is spot on, hazy and pale yellow. It’s got a perfect amount of yeasty banana and clove aroma and taste. Great carbonation that bites a little but doesn’t go overboard.

Cloudy orange yellow beer with a thick White head. Full mouth feel with an even non-bitter flavor. Quick finish; no lingering taste on the palate. Yeasty pungent aroma. Extremely satisfying!

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pours a cloudy yellow with a frothy head. Aromas of banana, and yeast. Taste is very sweet bananas, and that nice grainy wheat.

The gold standard for a hefeweizen. Pours a pleasant yellow. Inviting wheaty aroma. Beautiful white head. Tastes of banana bread, yeast and a hint of citrus. Best of all, no detectable hop flavour. Almost a thousand years of tradition - can’t get better.

Gold, clear yellow, white long lasting head, thick and tasty. Smells like rum from barrels, vanilla at first and wheat and fruits later. Sweetness of grains, bitterness of yeast. I really enjoyed in this one.

Oh my god, I loved this beer. Sometimes it's good to taste a hefeweizen the way it is supposed to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
