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.

Pours cloudy orange with a hige frothy head. Aroma of banana, citrus, grass, and yeast. Smooth flavor with a pungent finish. Honestly, not quite as much flavor as I was hoping for. Ive had this before and have found it to be tastier. I bought the bottle at a store thats not a "beer" store, so this might have been sitting on the shelf for a while. Will re-rate with another bottle.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 Bottle: Poured a deep amber color weisse with a big foamy head with medium retention and no lacing. Aroma of banana and cloves is quite present. Taste is a mix between some banana and cloves ester and some sweet malt. Body is full with loads of lees and minimal filtration and some good carbonation. Not exactly what I was expecting and a bit darker then expected on the appearance side. It is too bad the bottles are not dated since I believe this may have been an older bottle. I will be adding this one to the need to re-rate list. Rerate June 2008: A lot less sediment then last time with a more pronounced aroma of banana and cloves. Very well done.

Bottle. Huge creamy head. Light gold. Cloudy. Floral aroma with citrus, malt and a bit of musty cellar. Sweet taste; clove and orange prominent. Slight banana note and bubble gum in lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full with zesty foaming. Delicious!

Bottle. Great example of a classic Hefe. Great summer beer. Nothing bad to say about this one.

Smelled like ketchup and tasted like onion rings. Very unusual brew, with a sour-sweet taste not unlike a saison. Not a particular fan, but props for uniqueness.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle, split with after4ever. Pours cloudy gold with a lacy white head. Just a bit of banana and soft cloves in the aroma. Medium body and light carbonation. The taste picks up the same notes as the nose. Id like to try one of these badboys on tap.

Bottle. Not crazy about the way hefeweisse beer looks, love the way it smells and tastes. Cloudy, yellow color. Smells of cloves and slight fruit. Tastes of spice and fruit. Best hefeweisse their is.

The king of german weissbiers, enjoyed along with a creamy soup, to which it was a perfect match! Extra soft and round plate and flavor, along with classic notes of banana and wheat, i think i still prefer the paulaner, but i have to match then some day.

Draft @ BSP. Pours a lovely, respectably cloudy sunset orange with massive billowing head. Nose is peppery and clove-like, with a bready yeast bite, and minimal lemony tartness. Very full on the palate, with wheaty malts in balance with slight citric tartness and a hay, barnyard hop character. Finishes smooth and crisp, with hardly any bitterness. An effortlessly drinkable hefeweissbier, pretty much the standard in my opinion.
