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 the usual hefe cloudy yellow with a really nice 2 finger rocky white foamy head and perfect lacing. Nose is banana bubble gum and sweet wheat. Taste is coriander, clove, banana and yeast and a nice clean finish. Light mouth feel. Not a hefe fan, but this is the best one I’ve had by far. Mostly because of the way it finishes – it doesn’t have that overly sweet aftertaste.

Pours hazy gold with nice bright white head. The aroma first hits with a big bubble gum note. Upon deeper investigation the bubble gum was still there but just beneath were notes of wheat, mild banana, yeasty spices and some fruity esters in the background. Wow, tasty hefe. It starts with bubble gum, banana and wheat. Soon those notes are joined by mild tart acidity, floral and spice hop bitterness. As the finish approaches the classic bubble gum and banana overwhelm the other notes.

Bottle poured into a Weihenstephaner Weiss glass, produced a proper two fingers worth of white head that lasts. The body of this wonderful brew was a hazy and golden orange in color The aromas of bananas, wheat and spices filled my head. The nose on this is exactly what I expect in a Hefe. The banana smell wasn’t overpowering as in some others The flavors mimic the nose, but it is very refreshing in the way it plays in your mouth. Good carbonation and light as well, great flavors this is a world class Hefe. This starts of sweet and fruity and had a light dry finish. Highly drinkable, it would be my go to session brew if it weren’t so expensive.

Interesting how even not my favorite types of beers are worth drinking when they are one of the best in their category. A lot of flavor in this lighter tasting beer. Flowers and green fruit, spice and a crisp kind of malt and a slight dry finish. Not something I would choose again, but something I am better for having tried.

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Pours cloudy golden with a nice white head. Has the lovely yeasty, banana, clove aromas. Goes down very very smoothly, just a perfect example of a great German weissbier.

4.4
WalterSmidge (14) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2008
Cloudy and Golden with a durable and lively white head. Aromas of Bannana and yeast with a hint of lemon. Sweet on the first sip developing to sour then bitter at the end of the taste. Smooth mouthfeel, almost coating the mouth and going down with little carbonation. Highly drinkable for lovers of beer or not this is a top notch beer and highly reccomended.

Draught. Pours with typical hefe golden cloudiness, with durable head. Citrus and yeast on the nose, and decent mouthfeel.
