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.

brianza_ale (111) - ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
50 cl. Also on tap, @Speedy Pub in Monza. Pours a very large white creamy head, deep orange, cloudy and opaque colour. Smells smells fenolic/clove, fruity, grainy and vanilla. Tastes very fruity, esters, sweet spices, banana hints, wheat; nice and right amount of sweetness. Fizzy high carbonation, medium bodied, creamy texture. Extremly smooth, probably the most balanced and weiss out there, and maybe also the most drinkable too, aromonious, delicate, but still perceptible flavours. Seamless and very refined, but not the tastiest. Not sure at all to consider this the "best" weisse /hefewizen (see Ayinger and Schneider...)

boxofrane (2170) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Draft at trios. Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. The aroma has plenty of banana, medium clove. The taste has a ton of banana bread and a slight spiciness. Well done.

Hidden_Pooch (356) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
This highly rated beer got my hopes up far too high. Poured a murky straw with a massive off white frothy head, which is very appealing. Aroma was of wheat, citrus, herbs, and too much bubble gum. Tasted of bubble gum to the max, with wheat and herbs in the background. Had a refreshing bubble gum aftertaste that was tolerable. Also a big chewy mouth feel, but remained clean feeling too.

Calisky (875) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 23, 2014
Couleur jaune trouble, petite mousse blanche. Bon nez de bananes, pailles. Gout malté, bananes, notes de levures, petite amertume en fin de bouche. Ca va, le minimum qu’on peux attendre d’une hefeweizen.

Pelzky (27) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle poured into weizen glass. Hazy gold color with large, stable head. Looks great. Aroma of bananas, wheat, cloves, yeasts and hint of a bubblegum. Very pleasant. Taste has the same notes with bananas upfront yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is velvety, smooth. Great, classic weizen but I believe there are better ones.

BrewGoblin (386) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
I am led to believe this is a fine example of its style category but it didn’t wow me. It is pretty, very much so, having a fine mouthfeel as well. Hazy orange straw with a huge foaming mountainous head, this is a chompable, chewy, medium carbonated palate pleaser. The scent is of wheat, yeast, bubblegum and is very candy sweet. What killed me was the taste...just pure bubblegum sweetness with a little wheat. I get the fact that Belgian yeast strains produce certain bubblegum/banana/fruity esters but when all you taste is liquid Hubba-Bubba, you need to draw the line.

A very good Weissbier from a brewery that has been producing this great beer long enough to have it right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drsordr (1123) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle pour hazy lemon gold with thick white head. Nose spicy clove, ester, light banana. Smells crisp. Taste big banana milkshake, clove, and hint of gum. Only faint grainy malt late palate. Much thicker mouth feel than expected.

Strong fruity yeast aroma. Bright yellow pour. Heavy head and carbonation. Subtle lemon zest with perfect sugar level. Finishes with a pleasant freshness

Reviewed On: (6/28/14): *Glassware: Weizen *Serving: 11.2 oz (Make it 12 oz, Weihenstephaner!) *Aroma: banana, clove, wheat, yeast *Appearance: A very hazy pale gold with a fist of frothy off-white head. The head very slowly receded to two fingers. Light lace was left on the glass after the beer was finished. *Taste: Banana upfront, clove in the middle, and yeasty taste in the end. *Palate: Light body, creamy mouthfeel, highly carbonated on the tongue. Finishes semi-dry and is quite refreshing. *Overall: A fantastic hefeweizen from a brewery w/ a rich history and experience of brewing excellent quality beers.
