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.

It has a nice foam with a pleasant colour. The aroma is quite fresh, slightly citrusy. It is well-balanced and generous.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 The oldest brewery in the world. That’s also gotta be worth something. Check it out. A great wheat beer.

Dougal (130) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Overall a dcent hefeweisse. Great golden hues, particularly when served in a Weihen glass. Aroma was a bit funky, kind of like really old grain. The flavor was my least favorite aspect, lending way to stale bread and tin foil. Nice body for a hefe-weisse.

This brew pours a very large head of finely sized bubbles and a cloudy light yellow brown body. It has a nice wheat beer aroma not stoo strong though. Its flavor starts off with mild fruity banana lemon and yeast notes then mellows into a lingering soft mouthfeel. It is on the thick side which adds to the smooth mouthfeel. It is an easy brew to drink and is one that you could easily enjoy in a beer tent at the Oktoberfest! Prosit!

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Cloudy yellow with a big white head that sticks around a while. Aroma is citrus and yeasty and the head is very bitter. The taste is musty/grassy with some significant citrus notes. A very good hefe.

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2004
Sadly average. Nice color, but short-lived head. Nice aroma (yeast, citrus, banana). Slightly sweet malty and wheaty taste; dry yeasty finish. It feels like all the right flavours are there, but they are a bit too light and bland, especially when compared to my favorite hefeweizen, like Ayinger or Franziskaner.

Geiserich (3616) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 21, 2004
Very yeasty and wheaty, spicy flavor. I miss the typical banana or glove notes. Beer is quite good, but i can’t understand, why this beer should be the number two wheat in the world...

slightly toasty roasty aroma with hints of bananas. Moderatley hazy starw/copper color with a nice white head. Malty, sweet, roasty, malty banana/citrus finish. Im must be missing something, cause I dont find this beer special.

Although not a fan of light wheat beers, the Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier had a very cool refreshing taste. What struck me most was the cloves in the aroma and right on the center of the tongue. Also, a hint of banana like flavor. A pleasant grain flavor is present in aftertaste.
