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.

A hazed golden orange pour with a thick gooey lacing. Very nice spiced aroma. A fuity flavor with hints of clovve and a lot of bannana. Carbonation is ok but it was a bit fizzy. Palate was solid. A very good offering for the style has alot of the characteristics needed for the style.

Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is of sweet clove, wheat malt and light, fresh fruit. Taste is exquisitely pointed, refined and crisp. After drinking so many American incarnations of the style, its lovely to try the granddaddy from which they all have descended. Sweet banana taste balanced by clove. Has a distinctly German feel to it. Great beer.

Along with Denisons the best Hefe out there. Enjoyed first @ Gollem in Amsterdam & again @ Ellicottville Beer Festival. Creamy cloudy clovey. Delicious

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 Arguably a benchmark for Hefeweizen, this is incredible and perfectly exemplifies the traits of this style. It is hazy gold with a huge, dense, thick white head that lasts forever. The aroma is honey and pears. The palate lively. The taste is crisp, sweet before leaving a dryish but smooth finish, it tastes of wheat and biscuit with vague fruit and transforms to the paradigmatic bubble gum finish, being an almost minty, bitter, old-fashioned bubble-gum flavour like Dubble Bubble.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2011 Drunk from its intended glass just accentuates it so much more...so light and floral. a great hefe. Lots of banana and clove. Very light, but the body gives just enough to leave an impression. A true delight and one of the world classics.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2008 I bought four of the Weihenstephaner beers and saved this one for last because I am a Hefe Weiss lover. So here I go. Pores a typical Hefe cloudy amber with a huge frothy head that just wont yield. Typical sweet malt and citrus aroma. Excellent palate with just a little tartness on the finish. Well its no Franziskaner but all in all a refreshing wheat beer.

Gornography (1) - USA - OCT 30, 2007 does not count
Its difficult for me to comment and or rate this beer becuase it is so good i cant really explain the intenseness that comes for siting and enjoying it. Um again the scores i rated here are as close as i can come to representing my opinion of this beer without giving it the medal of honor even tho im damn close. I wont get into all the fancy terms every1 else uses but if u havent drank this beer, do it if u come across one. Maybe i will come across a beer better someday but for now its pretty high on the list. Drink from a GLASS!! :)

Great hefeweizen. Lovely color and taste. Much better experience than the one i had with Hacker-Pschorr. Very drinkable. I had mine with a batch of steamed crabs.

Purchased just a single bottle. It poured a nice semi-cloudy yellow, with a nice sized head. The aromas were good, strong banana, clove, and wheat. The flavors are the same with a hint of vanilla. I didnt like the fact that it was a little thin for my likings, so the mouthfeel was off just a bit. Also, the nasty black yeast that dropped out of the bottom didnt help my rating at the end.
