Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a big foamy white head. Fantastic aroma of banana, clove, spices, candy store and wheat. Flavour is banana, more banana, clove, sweet spices and a long pleasant bitter aftertaste. What a wonder of hefes! yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier is a cloudy, sparkling, hay-colored beer with a firm, dense off-white head. It has a spicy aroma of banana and clove. It is medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a clean finish. The flavor is clean, bold and smooth with a lot of spice. It’s very clovey and peppery. An excellent Hefe! subcell (96) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2008
I am a huge fan of Hefe Wiessen beers and this was an excellent choice for me. I can honestly say that I enjoyed it very much. It had the traditional banana/clove taste but was sweeter with a little more spice to it. I thought it had a very nice nose and a clean crisp finish. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2008

Flav.: A bit more banana that on the nose, some cereal and what, a bit of clove dry with a very slight spicey grain aftertaste.[br/][br/]
I worked on the Freising campus of TUM, where this brewery is located. Oddly enough, their products were not well-liked by the locals due to rumours of headaches. This product was not well-liked by me because it was boring. Thankfully, no headache to report. Skidds (252) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2008 Has the aroma and flavour of a typical Hefeweizen. Citrus, yeast, banana, cloves, and bubblegum. A bit sweeter than other hefeweizens I have had (a good thing). I have been wanting to try this one for quite some time now. I was happy to see it here finally. Although I think it is just seasonal beer here in Ontario. This reminds me why I love Hefeweizens.

On tap at Happy Pizza Kitchen in Munich. I am rating my very first encounter with this beer, and subsequent run-ins have been stateside bottles and do not live up to the first few pints of this I had. Unbelievable smoothness and almost a fruity yeast taste. Very effervescent texture, notes of mellow banana and appley-clove. Just outstanding when I had it first. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2008

Info: 500ml bottle, 24/1-2006, 65/300, 41/500 austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Fizzy golden w/ huge pale head. Strongly wheaty nose, raw banana, clove, yeast. Flavor is quite spritzy, wheat, peppery spices, a hint of alcohol. This bottle was surprisingly low on fruitiness. Medium bodied, slick palate. It’s a good weisse, but I’ll go with Ayinger.
