COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our golden-yellow wheat beer, with its fine-pored white foam, smells of cloves and impresses consumers with its refreshing banana flavour. It is full bodied and with a smooth yeast taste. To be enjoyed at any time (always a pleasure / enjoyment), goes excellently with fish and seafood, with spicy cheese and especially with the traditional Bavarian veal sausage. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Huge aroma of cloves and bananas, but unfortunately compromised by sulfuric notes. Very high carbonation (not my cup of tea), light body, easily drinkable. OK, but expected more.

500ml bottle. Pale cloudy gold with a sparkling, thin white head. Aromas of haylage, banana, light floral notes, and bread. Distinct flavours of separate bread and banana, with faint floral and wheat notes.

Rex_Remes (192) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - FEB 25, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: yeast, sour dough, clove, anise,,banana, more fruity than Franziskaner (which is more tobacco and metal and malt) APPEARANCE: cludt golden yellow,mint of Amber/orange, fine foamed white head, creamy, not much head but it lingers. TASTE: tartness upfront, sour yeast and grain, malty but smooth, some herb and medicine, mostly yeast flavor. PALATE: soft and smooth, medium bodied, creamy, some closing bitterness. OVERALL: not bad. Probably not the best weisbier, but quite good. Strengths are a very nice nose and excellent on the palate. A bit one dimensional in flavor. A 100% weisbier experience with minimal lager or too much malt characteristics.

"The best is yet to come" sang Sinatra... well it's arrived! The Hazy amber liquid rolls down the long glass giving a two fingers white fine head gifting us with the fragrance bold wheat & yeast, peaking through is tantalising sweet banana. The feel is lusciously smooth like liquid velvet rolling around the tongue as it gently effervesces. Relish the creamy wheat elixir carefully in the mouth with its fulsome flavours that come in layers; a lightly sugared white bread and banana sandwich, a hint of a pleasing piquancy comes through and the culmination is the lightest bitterness and bubblegum. This is a Bavarian beauty you will be glad to serenade the into the twilight.

For the book. Aroma is wheat, clove, fruity, slight metallic, decent. Appearance is golden amber, off white head, hazy. Taste is wheat, metallic, clove, slight earthy hop, eh. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, wheat and earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, I expected this to be better based on the rating, but to me its just incredibly average.

Pours hazy golden colour with a beautiful head. Aroma of bananas, bubblegum and malts. Great and complex. Taste is quite sweet. Then, maltiness and bananas. Creamy mouthfeel, light bitterness. High body, such as hefeweizen. Medium carbonation. Its not as refreshing as others wheat beers. I totally understand why this beer is considered to be the best Hefeweizen. Fantastic.
