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.

Murky blond beer; head creamy but dissipated quickly. Fruity aroma and lemon wheat aldehydic flavor with mild sweetness. Smooth mouthfeel. A little flat but could have been the tap. Good but not great beer; will try again on a hot day.

I tried this beer on May 31, 2008 after purchasing from the Queens Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy orange colour with a generous bubbly head. The aroma was mild wheat, some hops, and some spiciness with a malty feel. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, slippery, with a lot of carbonation. The flavour was sweet and spicy with wheaty, malty, and soime fruit tones in the mix.

Pours orange and is slightly cloudy, with a frothy head at first and then a thinner creamy looking head. Smells of yeast and wheat exactly what this style is known for. The flavor is very smooth, has a sort of citrus hint and a little banana along with yeast and wheat. This is a great Hefeweizen!

Poured a cloudy orange with a blooming white head. Strong and complex aroma; sour wheat and yeast, hints of banana. Tangy sour flavour, very refreshing bubblegum sweetness. Nice palate. Excellent beer, one of my favourites.

DerWeg (1659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2009 Bottle, import, 3 weeks old. ;) Very nice solid blonde weizen color! Billowing head gives off yeasty banana and phenolic aromas. Taste darting hints of some tropical fruit, maybe guava? Slides back very lieblich and goes ex. well with the herb-poached arctic char. Even better with the brunch left-overs of same... hey you want to taste real Bavarian, try this in the AM with some extremely fresh Weisswurst and hot-from-the-oven Bretzeln. My Uncle considers Weizen a morning beer and this actually makes a little bit of sense....

500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours the ideal looking Hefe, with a huge white head. Aroma: Yeasty to the max, what can I say, its a Hefe, think all the good characteristics of one. Flavour: See Aroma. Haha, well its a tad sweeter than some other Hefes Ive had, but in this case it helps balance the sour bite of the yeast. Malty, no hops whatsoever, plenty of citrus, nice spicy bite in the finish, a touch of clove. Not as much banana as I tend to like, but the key here for me is the moderate effervescence, because overly carbonated Hefes are just terrible (and almost killed me once). Ladys and gentlemen, for my 300th rating, I give you, Bavarian Wheat Beer. The first time a milestone rating has actually been anything decent for me. After a bad experience with too much Hefeweizen, I went through a period where it made me nauseous. This beer has changed that, and allowed me to enjoy the style again! Thank you Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan! (Ill expect a cheque in the mail for this promotion; I dont work for free you know).

I was a bit perplexed by this beer because although it is a German Hefe I thought it reminded me more a Belgium White beer because of the more complex taste and the hint of lemon in the aroma. Regardless, this is an excellent beer that would satisfy me on most nights (except on a bitter winter evening). Cheers.

pootzboy (1696) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottled. import, 3 weeks old. Lovely clouded orange-gold with a massive meringue head, great retention, massive lacing. Aroma: much like Schneider weissbier without the dried fruit tones ...this is the original hefeweiss yeast and we get juicy fruits, banana, clove,vanilla bean, a bit of bubblegum over some sweet doughy malts. Dry character, moderate body,great peppery mouth feel, a tad spritzy but not as pronounced as bottle conditioned wheats, great blend/balance of fruit-spice-dry toasty wheat....dry clean finish...wonderfully refreshing beer, very drinkable...cant wait to taste it unpasteurized on tap. Better tasting than Schneider, Paulaner, Hacker-P, Augustiner, Schfferhofer,Andechser...and probably better than Ayinger when fresh...cummon you know it!

500 mL bottle. (bb 04/03/09). Cloudy yellow-brown with a decent white head. Typical banana-clove aroma with a little citrus in there as well. Lots of wheat and spice in the flavour, with some citrus up front, and a discernible but un-nameable (by me, anyhow) spiciness near the end that distinguishes it from othere hefes Ive tried. Nicely carbonated, and a pleasant spicy, dry finish. Great summer beer.
