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.

Thanks to YBSober for sharing this beer! This is by far the best Hefe Weizen Ive ever had. Appearance: Pours a cloudy pale orange yellow color with a big bubbly head. (BTW dont shake this one up (to mix the sediment) or you may explode the beer all over a friends kitchen. (sorry Wayne ;) Smell: Boy, from the time this beer exploded all over the wall =) it had a fantastic aroma of lemon and wheat with a hint of fresh baked sweet bread. Taste: The front of the palate is full of wheat, yeasty lemon citrus, and a nice mildly sweet breadiness. There is a nice gentle bitter that balances this beer perfectly. Mouthfeel: Oh so smooth, a bit of a nice dry finish. Drinkability: The most drinkable wheat I have had yet. It is truly German and I highly recommend! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

poured from a 12oz bottle. Citrus aroma, spicy, orange in color, cloudy like most good hefes, very frothy head, medium sweetness, lively, Ive never been wild about this style, but I must say this is the best hefe Ive ever drank. An outstanding brew.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 Pours light orange / dark gold with a large, thick, white head. Smells fantastic - like sweet breads (as in sugar+bread, not the sweetbreads as in veal glands), with some fruit (apple, banana). The flavor delivers what the aroma promises: doughy, wheaty, sweet, delicate hop bitterness, strong flavors of yeast which include crazy flavors - most notably apple and banana. Prime example of the style.

NachlamSie (3355) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Bottle split with Tronraner in a blind hefeweizen taste. Well, this was the clear winner. The aroma was the most powerful of the four with deep spiced notes of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, banana, and a bit of dry yeast. Very aromatic. The flavor is a notch down from the complex, rich aroma, but it still has admirable nuances. Good balance of cloves, bananas, tangy yeast, and wheat. The finish was the driest in our tasting and very lingering with rich spiced notes. Just a slight hint at earth was noticed. This is a fantastic rich, complex hefeweizen.

On draft. Hazy gold color with a medium-lasting off-white head. Light citrusy aroma with some subdued yeasty notes. The flavor was lightly bready with a pleasant, tangy finish. Very nice and refreshing.

Pous a nice cloudy orange with a big white head that disapated quickly. Aroma is clove and banana. Flavor is a nice balance between banana, bubblegum and clove. Finish could use a hair more bitterness, but very well balanced overall.
