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.

I am making a political statement with my rating of this beer. One, I think this is the best wheat beer on the market. Two, I love reading the ratings on this site and I respect the beer knowledge of the reviewers; however, unless its a big, high alcohol beer nothing ever merits much more than a 4.5 ranking. As king of wheat beers, I give this a 5.0. The first one I have given. And the perfect time of year ... check back in the autumn, I might have to rerate ... I think that I am lost in a moment right now.

Really smooth with the bite I like from a wheat brew. Brewing since 1040 they should know their stuff.

Best rating for this beer ! --- It’s the best Weizen ! --- Some Banana and cinnamon in the aftertaste, and I still ask myself how you can extract this taste out of cereals... Bravo Brewmaster !

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2007 Everything a great weissbier should be. A beautiful bright yellow creamy butter hue w/ a full, creamy froth. Superb head retention that slowly reduces to a full silky canopy and lace. Aromas of banana cream, vanilla, and mellow citrus. Medium full nectar on the palate really infuses the complex flavors of vanilla, lemony citrus rind, honey, and spicey banana cream. Mildly medicinal w/ a fruity mild sweetness . Every great weissebier needs a little medicine in it’s portfolio. The finish has a slight acidic twitch to it clearing the palate for the next sip. Overall: a classic specimen. Creme de la creme! Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

The best Weisse beer I have tasted. Tastes better on tap then in the bottle but still great either way.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 This is the standard by which all other wheat beers should be judged. The aroma is a perfect blend of banana and clove. The yeast sediment is perfect for the roll and pour. No finer Wheat beer in the world.

This is one of the best German Hefe’s I have ever had. Pours a nice yellow color, lasting head. Wonderful aromas of banana and citrus. Flavors of banana, also vanilla. Recommend this to anyone looking for a refreshing beer.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 This is my all time favorite Hefeweizen. Any time I get a chance this is my selection. Such a great taste, palate, and appearance. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Hefeweizen.
