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.

Pours out a cloudy orange/gold with a thick white head. Has an amazing banana scent, which carries through to the taste. Beautiful fruity sweetness complimented by the banana hints, goes down very smooth as well. This is the best beer I’ve ever had, it’s easy to see why this brewery has been around for nearly 1000 years.

I don’t know why every one is always so conservative when rating beers. If a beer is really good, rate it really good. If it’s the best, rate it the best. In my opinion, Weihenstephaner defines the best of everything in it’s class. I love it and when I find it in beer serving establishment on tap, I’m a happy beer drinker. Looking forward to my next one.

Det kan kun blive en ren 5er. Det er måske ikke helt og alene øllens skyld, men efter at have været på TUM (Technische Universität München), så er denne øl bare vedhæftet med så mange gode minder. Øllen er i den gærede ende af Weissbier skalaen, skummet står flot til sidste slurk, hvis den bliver skænket rigtigt. Og så smager den bare af sommer, sol og frihed i Freising (München)

Great taste and availability on tap. Unfortunately not easy to find the bottled version in my country.

Pours a dense gold with a two-finger head. Heavy lacing. Brilliant buttery aroma, with caramel and bubblegum. Beautiful spicy taste, maybe a little cilantro and apple. Hearty yet effervescent mouthfeel and light finish.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 Almost forbidden good weiss bier. Rich flavor, banana flavor, with a great body and copious amounts of foam.

I live in Germany and have tried many Weizen beer. I can say that this is the best I have tried. I still need to try Ayinger and Schneider, but I still think Weihenstephan will rank with them. This is my favorite beer to drink when I want more than one beer and fortunately I can buy a case anytime I want. Tomorrow I am driving to Westvleteran, Belgium to get my 2 cases of #12; it only took three weeks of calling to get a reservation.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 On tap at Wvrst Toronto. Poured bright, cloudy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma of banana and toast. Sweet citrusy taste with light carbonation and a long toasty finish. Probably my all time favourite beer.
