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.

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.

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.

3.9
WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Alot sweeter than most hefes, but this leaves nothing to be desired. Its a very deep taste that changes as it sits in your mouth. Less sweet finish. Not too lemony, which is very refreshing.

3.5
Petrucci914 (921) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Pours a cloudly yellow/gold color. Aroma is very yeasty with banana, clove, and a hint of bubble gum. Taste is the same, with a metallic and flat finish.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2008
Not my favourite style, but very nice indeed.

Aroma is yeasty with just a hint of banana and clove. taste is strong for the style and the aftertaste lingers pleasantly.

"The World’s Oldest Brewery" seems to have perfected this style.

durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Lovely cloudy light golden pour with a nice bubbly and lasting head. Bananas, yeast, clove on the nose. A little citrus. Very bright and flavorful. This is such a standard Hefe it’s almost hard to describe... it’s exactly what a Hefeweizen should be. A classic.

3.8
Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 500ml bottle from LCBO in Ontario. Pale cloudy yellow with big foamy white head. Yeasty banana aroma. Very buttery smooth, carbonated, mild yeast, wheat, banana taste.
