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.

Nice yeasty aroma, i smell wheat and banana notes. Unfiltered yellow with a white head. Well carbonated, well balanced beer. One of my favorite wheats.

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass. Had a cloudy amber appearance with a quarter inch head. Slightly trace of fruit in the aroma, with wheat creeping in. Has a subtlely complex taste, with plenty of spices to keep you interested. Fair amount of carbonation. This is an excellent example of a hefeweizen and very drinkable.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Pour is a golden with a decent head and a good amount of carbonation. Aroma of cloves, spice, and bananas. Taste is nice, more complex than most hefeweizens. Mouthfeel is light, with plenty of carbonation. Overall a nice German brew.

JFGrind (2019) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Sometimes Germans just know how to brew a great beer and this is one of them. Banana yeast nose, rigid foamy head, and soft golden body make this a well done, session-able, thirst quenching German Hefe-licious beer.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2008
It may be the oldest, and possibly the best from Bavaria, but the bottle I got stateside may have been old. It seemed to lack the expected levels of banana and cloves that I am used to. I would like to re-rate this when I have one on tap in Germany.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JAN 13, 2008
This is one of my favorites. A truly classic representation of the style. Extremely well balanced, and food friendly. Wonderful acidity, loads of cereal grain flavors, with a bit of chalkiness, lemons, bananas and cloves. Consistent from bottle to bottle.

Pours honey yellow with a thick, creamy head. Citrus aroma; flavor has grape, citrus and nutmeg notes. Very effervescent. Overall a good Hefe.

Headbanger (3942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2008
16.9 oz bottle-A hazy yellow with a somewhat small head for a hefe and an aroma of cloves, banana, yeast and wheat. Taste of the same with some cloves. I feel this as being one of the lighter hefes but still very tasty.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow-brown with a big white head. Aroma is a nice spicy bannana and bubble gum. Taste is nice as well, with the same flavors coming through as well as some clove all while being extremely smooth. Very good.
