UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 The classic weissbier, never disappoints. Cloudy golden color with a nice white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, banana, and clove. Typical light wheaty flavor, yeasty, refreshing, fruity, with clove and banana. Very refreshing. Always a good call (unlike Miller, which claims this, but is a terrible beer). j12601 (13027) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Mini growler from Half-Time. Pours a hazy light amber with a good sized white head. Nose is citrus and wheat, almost a little clove spice, and a good amount of banana and yeast. Carbonation is subtle, mouthfeel is medium but light. Slight sweetness leads into a light crisp yeasty finish. mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2009
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Appearance: Textbook, enormous, white head; darker orange color; moderate haze
Aroma: Like banana bread with cloves; very typical, nothing out-of-the-ordinary
Flavor: Better than Ayinger; better balance; good banana and clove flavor with a stronger wheat, some vanilla, and subtle citrus; Complex
Palate: Nothing to complain about; Long, enjoyable finish; wheaty creaminess CptGreencoat (95) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2009
(I had a Double IPA before this, so my taste buds are a little shot.)
Pours to a pale, cloudy amber with light, quickly dissipating white head that laces the glass with a medium grip. The nose is pure spice and banana, a sign of good things to come. This moderately carbonated hefe is a very spicy beer from start to finish, and as refreshing as any wheat brew should be. Most certainly worth visiting every few months.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2009 This is my all time favorite Hefeweizen. Any time I get a chance this is my selection. Such a great taste, palate, and appearance. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Hefeweizen.

Bottle. Dark golden with huge creamy head. Intense wheat, banana, bubblegum and yeast aroma and flavour. Great carbonation. Smooth and bitter finish. Great beer. CanIHave4Beers (4207) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 30, 2009
This beer looks amazing. Such an enormous fluffy meringue like head, a nice cloudy light orange color. Plenty of good lace. The smell is intensely yeasty and dry with some good fruit scents. Some spiciness, some copper, and some bread dough. Flavor is just so quintessential for the style. but the notes are so well amplified. This is a fantastic tasting beer. There is a immediate yeasty and bubblegum flavor some apple and citrus along with the classic banana clove combination. This is sweeter than many hefes so I take it one bottle at a time, but it is such a delight. Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Aroma is bubblegum and must. Nose is all clove. Pours a crystal clear golden. Flavor is sweet, cloveish and slightly back biting bitter. Definitely a true Hef! Bready notes strike in between the clove and bubblegum notes. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2009
16.9 oz $3.20. Nice cloudy yellow, superb head. Typical smells of cloves. Flavor is bubblegum, clove, blackjack nice. This was definitely a good hefe and I am fairly ignorant when it comes to German beers. I’ll be picking up some more Weihenstephaner beers in the future.
