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.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2008
From the bottle, pours a hazy light orangish with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is not overpowering, but has lightly distictive notes of banana and yeast, as would be expected. Thicker than many heffies, smooth and malty without losing touch with the cloves, yeast, and light banana that the hefe is known for. A fine beer.

mansquito (5748) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours a hazy orange with a nice white head. Aroma of spices and banana. Taste is a crisp sweetness, which is refreshing and nice. Spicy taste in there more than in other German hefes. Light palate, but not watery like other beers in the type.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
From a 0.5 L bottle purchased locally. Aroma is fruity, grainy and a little sweet. Color is pale golden, a little hazy, with a half inch white head. Flavors are grainy, and a little banana fruityness. Light, refreshing. Easy on the pallate, and just enough bitterness. Not as crisp as it should be. Probably starting to show a little age. Still a decent beer.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2008
50cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Florida). Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a thin white head. Aroma: lemon, citrus, fruit with a hint of nuts. Flavor is wheaty, yeasty citrusy, with just a hint of hoppy bitterness on finish.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2008
Bottle pours a very cloudy straw color with a decent clingy head. The aroma is yeast, wheat, perhaps some clove/banana notes - not as much as I expected. The flavor is clove, very slight banana, some lingering ale fruit characteristics, and spice like cardamom. The palate is very refreshing and lively. Overall, this rocks and it has been too long since Ive had a hefe!

HughConway (830) - Washington, USA - APR 11, 2008
Draft. Gorgeous honey with thick creamy white head. Spicy yeasty nose. Nice spicy fruit flavour. Damn nice.

Strykzone (6946) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2008
What a massive head! Honey colored and unfiltered. Clove, wheat, and yeast are the nose. Clove dominates the flavor but it is quite consistent with the aroma. Some mild bitterness is a bit of a surprise and is also somewhat soapy. Fruity esters show up mid glass (22 oz.) I miss the banana and orange but this was a nice hefe and was also distinct.

notalush (5774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 Lively golden/orange, glowing beer, with a foamy, well-sustained head - yeasty aroma, with notes of orange blossom honey, citrus, wildflowers, perfume/herbs, wheat, and a light nutty character - light yet creamy body - very subdued sweetness allows the herbal character and soft wheat notes to come through a lot more than in other hefes - yeasty, but not overly so, and the yeast combines with the grainy notes to give the beer a bready character, despite the fact that it remains light and refreshing throughout - very soft and subtle - phenolics come through just a bit, as do some light lemony notes, but herbs, flowers and wheat remain most prominent - this is an exceptional hefe, and one that I cant believe Ive taken so long to try.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a yellow-orange colour with a white head. Aroma is some perfumy yeasy, citrus, wheat and some herbs. Flavour is well-balanced and very mild wih some sweetness. Lots of wheat, some yeast, citrus and banana and a hint of malts. Very good indeed and presumably a perfect beer to go with lighter foods.

jkm (235) - AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2008
Dark yellow and hazy with a medium sized white head. Wheaty banana flavours. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Quite a sweet finish. Pretty nice. - 500ml bottle.
