COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forget your thirst. Our light yeast wheaten beer doesn’t give it a chance, and with 40 % lower alcohol and calorie levels than normal yeast wheaten beer. Brewed with fine yeast, easily digestible, tastes as good after sports as it does with fine food.
Note: The ABV went from 3.2% to 2.7%.

Great head, and sweet lemon grass smell, this beer was a little sweeter than most hefeweizens, and a little bit hard to drink due to the overpowering sweetness, but still preferable to most beer in general

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Mild caramel and cloves rise from this Leicht Weissbier’s bubbly mouthfeel, building a refreshing though forgettable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy beige.
-Drinkability is high, but mostly due to the body’s dryness.
-Banana esters are surprisingly low in this version.
-Like in many German ’leicht’ or ’alkoholfrei’ brews, the nose conveys ’beer’, but the flavor profile cannot follow up. Oh well, I’m not going to get pregnant any time soon.

On tap at their restaurant in Freising.

hopscotch (9555) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Lengthy retention. The aroma is of citric acid and yeast... lemony and a touch breadsy. No esters or phenols of note. Nice! Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Citrusy flavor... lightly sweet; moderately tart. Crisp, tangy, refreshing finish. Much better than expected!

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2010
It’s unclear, dark golden with a huge, white, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of banana, clove and wheat. The flavour is sweet with notes of clove, citrus, banana, wheat, and the finish is dry with notes of clove and citrus. It’s truly a light with a lot of flavour.

shrubber85 (7965) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle. Strong wort malt flavor with banana and clove notes. Hazy golden yellow color with minimal head. Sweet wheat malt and banana/clove flavor. Nice for a light Weizen - really like the malt flavor.

TET (1760) - FINLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Cloudy, light yellow beer with big and blond head; similar than normal Weihenstephaner hefe. Aroma is fresh, wheat, some sourness, bananas and hint of spicyness. Taste is wheatish, bananas, some sourness and some plastic in the aftertaste, overally taste is mild and short. Quite light body with high carbonation, still nice to drink. Basic, good hefe, the beer for thirsty body. But this is not even close with normal Weihenstephaner hefe, there are same element, but too they are too mild.

50cl. Tab at the bräustüberl. Poors hazy yellow with good white head. Aroma is cirtus, banana. Taste bitter, little sweet. Mouth-feel thin. Good when thirsty!
