3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from some liquor store in Indiana that I can’t remember at the moment (August 2008), consumed a little below cellar temp from a Weihenstephan weizen glass. Pours a proper massive off-white head that at first fills 90% if the glass, but quickly the hazy golden liquid starts peeking out, and the top of the head starts to slowly fade, leaving fine spots of lace....nose is rather sweet and light, caramelized bananas and little spice, though pleasant enough; some cookie dough/graham cracker notes as well..... the body is soft and doughy, not unpleasant at all, but pretty lacking in the tartness and crispness that I want in a hefe, with carbonation really low and an almost syrupy quality evident even when the beer is fairly cold....drinkable, but unquestionably one of the weaker German examples of the style I’ve tasted.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of wheat, coriander, and yeast. The flavor is full and delicious with orange and wheat tones. The texture is smooth and filling for a lighter wheat beer. This has to be one of the best beers for its style.

Bottiglia. Bel colore arancio, al naso si distingue la banana e il lievito. Stessa sensazione in bocca, con in più una lieve nota di lime. Finale secco, birra che si fa bere senza problemi.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Label says "Weltenburger Kloster Hefe-Weißbier Hell.
Body is deep orange, slightly cloudy but not so yeasty, with white creamy head. Aroma is weak bananas, clove, citrus and some grass and leather. Palate is slick, oily, mouthful and little tart. Carbonation is mouthful, soft and smooth. Taste is sweet and has taste of wheat malts, plus some yeast, with hints of grassy hops and dryness. Finish is dry and little tart. Overall smooth and balanced Hefeweißbier, but not complex really. Tends to taste of more filtered wheat beers. Still overall slightly above average.

Bottle. Nice hazy gold with orange glints and a big white frothy head, quick disappear. Sweet but flat and poor aroma, taste is poor, sweet fruit and no other things, not sour at all.
Inconsistent light sweet aftertaste. Light body. Overall an unbalanced sweet/flat hefe.

Flaske på altanen i Elviria, etter dagstur til Gibraltar: kremet hvitt skum og nydelig gylden sommergul. Deilig og forfriskende smak av banan, citrus og litt nellik, en saftig sundowner. Lite ettersmak, så det er bare å fylle på.

Nice one! Taste is is the middle of a German and Belgium Weizen. Smooth drink, no aftertaste. I personally would like a little more thickness, but I like it.
