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.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Fizzy golden w/ huge pale head. Strongly wheaty nose, raw banana, clove, yeast. Flavor is quite spritzy, wheat, peppery spices, a hint of alcohol. This bottle was surprisingly low on fruitiness. Medium bodied, slick palate. Its a good weisse, but Ill go with Ayinger.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Alot sweeter than most hefes, but this leaves nothing to be desired. Its a very deep taste that changes as it sits in your mouth. Less sweet finish. Not too lemony, which is very refreshing.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours a cloudly yellow/gold color. Aroma is very yeasty with banana, clove, and a hint of bubble gum. Taste is the same, with a metallic and flat finish.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2008
Not my favourite style, but very nice indeed. Aroma is yeasty with just a hint of banana and clove. taste is strong for the style and the aftertaste lingers pleasantly. "The Worlds Oldest Brewery" seems to have perfected this style.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Lovely cloudy light golden pour with a nice bubbly and lasting head. Bananas, yeast, clove on the nose. A little citrus. Very bright and flavorful. This is such a standard Hefe its almost hard to describe... its exactly what a Hefeweizen should be. A classic.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 500ml bottle from LCBO in Ontario. Pale cloudy yellow with big foamy white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Very buttery smooth, carbonated, mild yeast, wheat, banana taste.

robinvboyer (4432) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
typical hefe pour. nice cloudy yellow pour, with a great big white head. Lovely aromas of banana, and bubble gum. Some nice yeasty esters. Flavour is nice and yeasty, with some great clove, and banana. A nice slightly tangy finish. a great hefe. Spot on for the style, and excellent example.

barncatmatt (2283) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2008
500 ml bottle from the LCBO. everything about this brew is pure hefe. no reason to go into real detail about anything because nothing really stands out from anything else. just a very good example of this style. great summer brew.

mikkopen (1143) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2008
500 ml bottle. Hazy dark yellow, big foamy white head. Yeast and malts in the aroma, with some banana and notes of citrus. Medium-bodied mouthfeel. Spicy flavour of yeast and wheat, some banana as well. Im not a great fan of hefeweizens, but this one is very pleasant and refreshing.

Was served with lemon at Ashleys in Ann Arbor (although I didnt ask). Overall, quite good, and par for the course among higher-quality German hefeweiss beers. Banana and yeast for sure, but didnt pick up too much clove.
