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.

Woaah, banana, clove, apricot, thyme and sex beer anybody? Well step right up ale and brew perverts. Its got the haze, the smell, the glorious mouth full of childhood sweets and tastes like something out of all known planetary systems. It’s also got the ridiculously unpronounceable german name which I think is this: vee-hin-ess-sta-fan. If you’ve got a beer with 13 bloody letters in it, you better brew a good one. Its just lovely, lovely, lovely. Creamy with no bitterness, hop hunters chill out you crazy bean lickers, have a lovely breakfast beer and rip up a boiled liver sausage to go with it. Gggrrrrr, tonight I’m German.

of all the German "HefeWeisse" beers i ever tasted, this one is closest to perfection. An absolute top scorer.

Aroma dat nauwelijks overtuigd. Prachtig goud/geel/troebel om te zien, met een nog mooiere schuimkraag. Smaak heerlijk zacht, drinkt zich soepel weg. Mooie geheel tussen carbonatie en algemene smaak. Heerlijke weizen!

Aroma: cloves, wheat, banana. Appearance: hazy straw color, nice white head. Taste: low bitterness, intensive cloves notes with herbs, banana, dry and slightly watery, refreshing. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, zesty finish. Overall: Classical weizenbier, technically perfect, but I’ve tried much better stuff.

Thick, cloudy pineapple yellow color with a full two fingers of creamy white head. Aroma is musty, horsey yeast. There is a hint of banana, but it is overwhelmed by a tartness, like a sugary lemon. The aroma absolutely requires agitation to get the full nose. It dances in the nasal cavity. The banana is more like a banana creme pie. The flavor is musty, horsey malts; slightly sour yeast funk; tart citrus like lemon, blood orange and tangerine. There is a lemongrass finish, with an end of dried leaves. A touch of pink bubblegum. The feel is very dry, and a little prickly. The remnants of the beer lingers for a while, leaving a tartness in the aftertaste. Every time I think that I’m over hefeweizens, I try a great one. I will try to remember never to question Weihenstephaner again.

Pour from bottle. Banana clove. Pretty standard. I guess it is the standard.

Platz 1 bei ratebeer? Ganz ehrlich, für mich das schlechteste Weißbier das ich je getrunken habe - Geschmack, Farbe, Kohlensäure, Hopfen...Alles nix ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Molto probabilmente la migliore weisse in circolazione. Caratterizzata da una ottima carbonazione, presenta un corpo molto strutturato con sentori di pane e cereali, luppolata al punto giusto, ha una buona persistenza e gradevolezza

Fashawn (168) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
In pieno stile Weiss, giallo ocra con una buona schiuma fine e croccante. Spezie, banane ed albicocche al naso, in bocca macedonia di banane, mele e albicocche, con un po’ di pepe e coriandolo. Buona carbonatazione e corpo medio. Al palato è liscia, beverina, come acqua. Buona birra , ma non è il mio stile.

Really well balanced with clove and banana notes and an elegant malty note. The best of these wheat beers that I have tried.
