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.

Im not a great fan of hefeweizen, but his beer truly surprised me! Notes of banana and spice made this a delight for the palate. Definitely not a one dimensional beer as has been my experience with so many other hefeweizens.

500. Pours a gorgeous cloudy medium buttery amber with a towering fluffy platinum blonde head. Intermittent starry lacing persists, along with a little dab of head. Mild banana nose. Medium body with soft carb. You can pick up cloves in there...mostly because you know theyre appropriate to the style. The flavor here is pretty battered from all its time in transit and the rigors of the journey.

A very bavarian and bananian taste indeed. However, one of the finest weissbiers that I have had a privilege to taste. Pours hazy and golden with a huge foamy head. Taste is malty, sweet, aromatic and citrusy. Hail to the Germans.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 [2.14.08] Hello bananas! Huge banana aroma when you open the bottle. Smells the most like actual bananas that Ive come across. Lots of dusty yeast in the aroma too. Not very hazy pour, kinda like a golden pilsner with a giant creamy froth white head. Definite sour grassiness with fruity, dried banana, and yeast notes. Find it really similar to the Paulaner hefe. Sweet and sour banana & spice aftertaste. Filling body, despite the lively carbonation it feels a little flat and disconnected. There are many smoother hefes out there. Definitely not the end-all be-all of hefes. 8.3.7.3.13 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .[rerate 3.1.10] Meaty hefe yeast aroma, med sweet, nutty, lightly floral. Flavor follows, a bit watery, med sweet, ripe banana, lots of nutty meaty yeast (bottle wasnt totally settled). 7.4.7.3.13.

Bottle: Pours a pale orange/yellow with a pillow-like white head. Aroma is amazing with some banana, orange peel, wheat, and nutmeg notes coming through. Medium bodied mouth feel. Spiced-up citrus wheat flavors pound the taste buds and not one time do they yield. Ive definitely garnered a newfound appreciation for this style. Very good.

RSRIZZO (1977) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Aroma is yeasty with esters of banana and coriander. Color is a hazy orange yellow with very good carbonation and a big thick head. Taste is light and fruity. Starting with medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes on with a fruity yeast flavor and a mellow citrus taste then ends with a faint banana and coriander flavor and a gentle bitterness. After taste is clean with the citrus taste riding out the longest. This is one of the best Hefeweizens I nave ever had.

Bottle 0.5 l. Cloudy yellow, big white head. Nose is yeasty, a bit sour and wheaty. Flavor has wheat, yeast, some spiciness and sour acidity. Maybe a bit of citrus peel. Not much sweetness. Not as good as I wouldve hoped, too sour.

Poured to a golden beer with aromas of yeast and wheat. The palate was exceptionally smooth and had a good yeast and spicy flavor. Good beer.
