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.

This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a large white head. WOW! Take one whiff and the aromas just overtake you! Bananas, cloves, all the things you expect from a true german hefe! Then you take a sip and enjoy all those wonderful things that make the german hefe such a great beer! The flavors of course emulate the aroma, bananas, cloves, etc... this is one well crafted beer and is an exemplary testimony of what a german hefeweizen should be! Cheers!

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Pours a cloudy gold with a big white head. Fantastic aroma of yeast and banana, with hints of clove and hops. Slightly sweet and citrusy flavor, with the banana showing up again. A nice medium palate rounds out this deicious hefe.

Rune (11653) - Troms, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2008
Served comfortably chilled from a 500ml bottle. Hazy, orange body with a thin, white head. Spicy aroma of cloves and some sweet fruits. Sweet, late banana flavour mixed with citrus fruits that help to counter some of the sweetness. Wheaty and spicy aftertones. Foamy mouthfeel. Well balanced weizen (Linkping, 26.01.2008).

Heres a beautiful golden looker, with a wonderfully suspended cloudiness throughout, just below its modest head. The taste is a little too subtle to make it a favorite of mine, perhaps a little more citrus is what Im looking for.

The first beer to be poured into my brand new Franziskaner weizen glass. 3 fingers of head form instantaneously and I have to be cautious with the rest of the pour to maintain that amount of suds. The white foam lays atop a gorgeous, hazy organic unfiltered apple juice-colored body. OK lacing, good retention. The definitive weizen aroma: bananas and cloves. Very appetizing on this hot night. This beer is extremely mellow. Every flavor blends immaculately with the next. Soft banana and clove flavors meet honey, lemongrass, very subtle hops, a faint hint of pear skin, a bubblegummy note, cereal grains. Deeper than your average hefe. This beer has a nice crisp finish despite the cloudiness. Great balance, ample carbonation, mellow and sweet flavors, and low alcohol make for an insanely drinkable beer. Nice and refreshing. On a hot day I could easily imagine 3-4 of these disappearing.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2008
bottle.....pours a hazy golden orange with a moderate white to off-white head....bananas,wheat, and cloves make up most of the nose. a pervading sweetness all around.....a consistent flavor profile soon followed. sweet and pretty well-carbonated with some spices thrown into the mix....im not a huge hefe fan but this one would be one i would drink again. but overall, new glarus dancin man wheat is still my fave.

Thank you ilovedarkbeer for this. Very good for an exported Hefeweizen. Aroma is sweet wheat, banana, a little citrus, smoke, appricot and honey. Pours with a huge creamy white head that lasts pretty well. Color is a hazy yellow with a little orange. Flavor is a bit weak and neautral, but not unpleasant.

Tried this after the dunkel hefe. I prefer the dunkel, but this is more widely available and a close second in my opinion. Very nice sweet aroma. Lots of carbonation that stays with the beer very well. Taste is a nice mixture of sweetness and spice. Mouthfeel is great, it hugs my tounge.
