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.

50 cl bottle. Dim amber/orange with plenty of white lathing head. Citrus and banana in aroma, some bread as well behind that typical wheat beer aroma. Sweet taste with banana and bread. A suitable acidity and a thick mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle. I would prefer to get the half liter bottles of this, if I could. Cloudy, blond with billowy, ample head. Lots of carbonation, lots of flavor- sour banana. tart, refreshing. Complex, forward yeast flavor. Must compare this to some local wheat beers.

Wheat beers are my favorite, and this is by far the best sample I’ve gotten. I have zero clue why it took me so long to try. Absolutely brilliant golden-yellow with a great, large, airy. white head that lasts for quite some time. Superb head retention that slowly reduces to a full silky canopy and lace. Very Vibrant bouquet with major hints of banana, citrus, and a hint of cloves and vanilla. Citrus favors dominate along with major compliments of banana and clove. I’m now on a major mission to find this on tap, but the bottles are other worldly already.

Poured from a tap a light cloudy orange. Sweet and refreshing combination of notes and yeast with a touch of fruit,

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.
