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.

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle. Cloudy orangey golden with the characteristic huge head. Banana aroma dominant, clove is also noticeable. Fruity flavours that are less in your face than suggested by the nose- nicely balanced banana flavours with yeast and spices for dry effect. Medium to full body, soft. A classic that does not disappoint.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Im curious how good this beer would be when it hasnt had to travel halfway around the world. It pours a cloudy amber with a large, frothy, off-white and diminishing head. The aroma is of cloves, citrus, bananas and a solid yeastiness. Light and slick, it finishes crisp and clean. The flavor is a sweet yeasty front with a light citrus and banana segue to a solid wheat finish. A very clean and refreshing drinker; I could drink these all day long.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 Its been a long time since Ive geeked out on Hefes, but on this hot day in Carolina I thought Id take a splash. And this one was just the ticket, with a big cloudy body, a lightly spiced palate, and a frothy mouthfeel. Really good and quaffable, on a par with Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.

DSG (13643) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 29, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Re-rate 8/16: Bottle at Meshek Barzilay in Tel Aviv. A very nice classic Weizen, but I like it a little less than I used to. 7/4/7/3/15=3.6

Re-rate 3/31/08: Draught. Cloudy yellow with a big lasting white head. Fruity aroma of wheat, banana and some clove notes. Sweetish and lightly tart flavor with wheat, banana and a bit of spiciness. Light to medium-bodied with crisp mouthfeel. Great. 7/5/7/4/15=3.8

Draught. Cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is yeast, wheat, fruits (mostly banana, duh), and a bit of spices. Wheat, yeast and banana in the flavor. Pleasant medium body. A great weissbier! 7/4/8/4/15=3.8

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Poured a pretty pale hazy amber/golden. The head is thick, creamy, offwhite. The aroma is nice, banana, citrus, spice, sour. The flavor is sour, spicey, banana, and more citrus. The palate is smooth and crisp while remaining full. This is a delicious german hefeweizen and I am beginning to adore the style.

malrubius (2723) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 28, 2007
500ml bottle in Weinhestephan glass. Pours cloudy pale yellow orange with lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma of banana clove bubblegum. Perhaps the best hefe aroma. Extremely refreshing flavors of sweet orange fruitiness. Medium light body. Perhaps a hint too much carbonation, but refreshing mouthfeel nonetheless. Delicious, Ill have twelve.

ekstedt (6608) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2010 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with large but short fluffy white head. Standard weizen aromas of banana, clove and yeast. Medium bodied and smooth, still with a vivid carbonation. Very nicely balanced with a noticeable bitterness and a refreshing acidity. Very enjoyable.

glennmastrange (2764) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is dominated by the yeasts soapy/musty smell. The malt has a grain aroma and the hops of lemon. Pear, allspice and clove are also noticable. The head is fizzy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is a clear yellow/amber. Flavor starts out acidic and finishes lightly bitter and salty. Palate is light and is between dry and watery, but is very crisp and semi-refreshing. Carbonation is fizzy and finishes slightly astringent. A good hefeweiss.
