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.

Złote, mętne, piękna gęsta piana. Wzorcowy lacing. W aromacie bardzo wyraźne banany, lekkie goździki gdzieś z tyłu. Smak to idealnie 50:50 banany i goździki. Ogólnie bardzo solidne piwo ale czy rzeczywiście najlepsze? Na pewno wzorcowe.

Dorata chiara, opalescente, schiuma bianca fine e di ottima persistenza. Aroma di coriandolo, citrica, chiodi di garofano e frumento. Al palato stesse componenti, coriandolo meno evidente, corpo medio-pieno, ben carbonata, un po' acquosa. Eccellente nel suo stile.

ArtificialCyst (137) - Szczecin, POLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Aroma: Simply a deScriptor of the style, although could be much more intensive: bananas on first plan, then clove and wheat, citrus. Appearance: High dense head, enourmous lacing, nice hazy yellow color. Taste: Bananas, wheat, many citrus notes, nice phenols - rather delicate but well composed, very crisp, low watery feeling, some weizen sourness. Palate: FInish is semi-sweet, carbonation is optimal - high to medium, body is low to medium. Very refreshing, smooth and delicate weizen, everything well balanced. Definately one of the top beers in its style.

Quick3Beers (519) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Pours a hazy amber from the tap. Nose of banana-y yeast, but not as heavy as most hefeweizens in that. All in all a good balanced hefeweizen. Good beer.

davidezdonz (109) - , HONG KONG - NOV 7, 2015
A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 3rd June 2016 and poured into a Riedel weizen glass. It poured a cloudy golden straw yellow colour with a fluffy and puffy three finger white head that dissipated slowly leaving some nice lacing. Aromas are lightly bready and wheaty with lots of sweet banana, banana bread and clove. Taste is sweet ripe banana with hints of bubblegum, clove and citrus lemon. Medium bodied with mid to high carbonation. Overall, a very balanced Hefeweizen that tastes great. But still can’t find this in Hong Kong and always have to carry it back in a suitcase.

Bottiglia. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č elevata e la persistenza olfattiva č discreta. Il cappello di schiuma persistente č voluminoso e abbondante con un finale di merletti. La carbonazione č esagerata. Al piano inferiore la frizzantezza č di bollicine fini dalla carbonazione esagerata, frizzante e vivace. La consistenza del liquido č opalescente, dal colore giallo dorato. Il corpo č pieno, dalla struttura cremosa. Alla lingua l’aroma rimane in equilibrio tra il dolce medio e l’amaro medio. L’intensitŕ gustativa č elevata e la persistenza gustativa č buona. Il gusto č godereccio. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe, come pure il finale. Il retrogusto č persistente, dai sentori di pane, fieno, agrumi e cortile.
