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.

Bottle. Pours a perfect cloudy orange/gold with a big white head. Aroma is banana, clove, yeast, and floral touches. perfect. Flavor is slightly sweet, with all of the elements of the aroma in perfect form. Finishes a bit dry, with a slightly lingering yeast flavor. Have had this multiple times in hefe tastings, and it always stands out as the clear winner.

A little dark on the pour. This is an amber in color with a huge, two inch of pillowy head. Looks great! Smell is all wheat, some lemon and some other spice being noticed as well. More wheat and you can taste the yeast in there as well. This is a Hefe in the purest sense of the word. Clean and non-cloying. Refreshing, perfect warm weather beer. Here comes the stateside part of my review: I think it would improve with some vigorous hopping, lol.

Draft. Really tasty old German-style hefe. A touch of bananas, but mostly just lovely yeast and refreshing citrus. Just what a German hefe should be.

Pour is cloudy golden with a very fluffy white head. Aroma is quite potent with wheat, floral aromas, light orange, and spice. Flavors are full with floral and a medium but very smooth sweet orange peel. I got a lot of yeast in the flavor as well finishing with a wheat finish. Good brew. Would buy again. Very refreshing

A long while ago I drank this bier in a Bavarian bar. Today it is still as great of a drink as I remembered it to be. When poured correctly it has one of the most perfectly proportionate heads as any bier i have seen. The bier it’s self has a slight banana undertone with a subtle citrus after taste. Light and milky, this bier is poster child for all Bavarian Weiss biers.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 Bottle thanks to Woodsman52. An awesome German Hefeweizen. Strong aroma of bread and yeast. Magnificent tangy citrus flavor of wheat, light hops, and yeast....with bit a of tart and extremely clean crisp finish. Refreshing and light. This is what I imagine a perfect German Hefeweizen to be.

Bottle thanks to Woodsman52. Hazy golden with a nice head depending on the way you pour this. Could be excessive or small depending on your expertise. Large bread yeast aroma. Slightly sweet with some short lived bitterness. Fizzy on the palate but smooth. Nice beer.

Bottle and on tap but I just finished a bottle so this review is based on a bottled sample. Consistently hazy glowing sunflower supporting a towering white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of fresh bananas, yeast and newly cut grass. Mildly spicy but crisp banana flavor with cloves and a kiss of yeast. Rich texture and a full flavored brisk finish. Refreshing and versatile. Clearly worthy of its place as a world and style standard.
