3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright, hazy golden yellow with a big creamy white head that bubbles down slowly to a rocky collar fed by a steady stream of bubbles from the bottom.
There is plenty of sweetness in the aroma with bananas and honey dominating. Hints of clove as well and this one smells much like a good hefe.
The taste delivers on the expectations of the aroma and really does taste like an amped up hefe. Big wheat flavor up front, featuring bananas but with an earthy honey sweetness mixed in. The finish is spicy.
This is a full bodied wheat beer and extremely smooth and creamy.
Super drinkable, very tasty and, overall, just a well-crafted wheat beer. One of the better wheat beers I’ve ever had actually.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, I thought Weizen Bocks where dark in color?? NOT this one! Very pale yellow color, hazy, with a huge white head. Typical sweetish hefeweizen aroma with notes of ripe bananas, cloves, yeast and bubblegum. Does Weihenstephaner use the same strand of yeast in all there brews?? They all smell exactly the same with the same after tones. The flavor is sweet and fruity, but still fairly light bodied for its strength. Moderate notes of cloves, very moderate hops. Very drinkable. Very tasty. I have only good things to say about this brewer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Packs a good deal of banana and cloves and has a hint of bay leaf, but it is still a little light for a weizenbock, which is perfect when you want more than a normal hefe but not as much as a heavy bock.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow clour, avergae white head. Spices and sweet dry fruits in the aroma, some hops also. Herbal taste with balanced bitterness, round flavour but at the end it turns a bit watery. Light bitter finish, I would say medium body. Ok.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy yellow color with a massive billowing foamy white head. Minimal lacing left around the glass, but a nice layer of foam remains. Aroma has elements of banana, citrus and bread - its nice, but mild compared to the rather large & potent flavors.
Taste is primarily citrus at first - lemon mostly, then banana and some slightly funky yeasty/bready flavors balance things out. Very similar flavor profile to their Heffe.
Very bubbly and well carbonated, with a bit of warmth from the alcohol. Easy to drink, but deceptively strong - the high-ish ABV is hidden well by all of the delicious flavors present.
Will definitely be drinking more of this.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale yellow opaque pour with medium white head. Sweet aromas of candied fruit, pineapple, orange peel, clove, bananas. The first taste reminds of a good belgian triple: full body, fruity, sweet and spicy. A bit of bubblegum. The sweetness is kept in check with a slightly dry finish. A bigger, better hefe. Very very drinkable. Awesome!
