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.

I have tried most of the German Hefe-Weizens out there that I can find and this definitely in the top two, if not the best one in the world. The aroma is great, the appearance perfect and the taste is nice smooth wheat flavour with a hint of banana/fruit. Definitely my favourity beer so far!

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. You have not had one of these beers until you have had fresh on tap at the brewpub. When this is poured I dont see a beer but a blond women in a golden dress. Probably one of the best German Hefe-Weizen there is. Nice banana aroma.

jfb (6270) - GERMANY - SEP 14, 2008
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 (bottle) pours a cloudy golden colour with a dense white head. aroma of peanuts and wheat, quite medicinal, with hints of apricot, peaches, light notes of yeast and herbs. flavour is mostly on the fruity side of things, with some dominant notes of banana and peaches, followed by a mellow wheaty caramel finish. medium-bodied with refreshingly lively carbonation.

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Aroma is banana/citrus and easters. Pours cloudy orange with rocky white head. Flavor is crisp citrus and banana with an undertone of spice. Finish is nice and dry. Medium body with okay head retention. Sweet and refreshing, almost like a Witbeer with more banana and spice. Well done. Probably the best Hef out there. If you like WIdmer Bros, you have to try the original!

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2009 7 oz draught sample. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of bread and yeast. Taste of the same with some subtle hints of citrus. Slightly watered down finish.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2008
From bottle. Wonderful sweet banana wheat aroma, with clove and mild citrus notes, yeast funkyness and light gaseousness. Great nose on this one - this exemplifies what I think of when I think German Hefeweizen smell. Cloudy medium amber body with foamy off-white creamy-foamy lacing head. Medium bodied, with medium carbonation that’s almost effervescent. Starts with terrific fresh sweet wheat malt, light banana, and some chalky bitterness. Light amount of citrus character and yeasty taste. Even a bit of clove and vanilla in there, too. Light and refreshing and one of the best I’ve had in a long time.

Beer5000 (6494) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2008
500 ml bottle. Hazy orange body with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is fruity, yeast, ester and a bit spicy. Flavor is refreshing fruity, citrus, banana and yeast. Medium body as preferred with this type of beer, very nice and close to perfect.

3.7
scoth (685) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Pours pale yellow, slightly cloudy, big, dense head. Lacing that clings thickly to the side of the glass. Strong aroma of lemon and banana. Thin but rich body, a little dry. Well balanced taste, slightly sweet, very subtle, some banana and wheat, but other flavors are hard to pick out. A very mild hop aftertaste.
