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.

theviolet (186) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Fuzzy reddish golden orange. Pillowy white lasting head. Huge sweet citrusy aroma. Absolutely wonderful. Soft bitterness initially, bright lemon zest. Clean light hop finish. Full in your mouth. Lasting and makes you want more.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Had ik meer van verwacht. Niet al te smaakvol: mout, bittertje, banaan, weinig carbonatie in de mond. Voor mij de top 50 rating niet waard.

MNAle (167) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2017
Bought this to compare with some of the local Hefeweizens. Hazy, cloudy yellow, lots of carbonation, tall, thick, white head. Nice hefe aroma, banana & clove. Moderate to full mouth feel, tingly from the carbonation. Taste of banana and the wheat. Excellent, easy drinking hefe.

moldovan9807 (146) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 23, 2017
Aroma of banana, fruit, citrus and peach,bread . Flavor is dominated by banana notes with some fruity, slightly sweet and bready flavor and lingering citrus in the fairly dry finish. Low hop bitterness. Medium body and medium high carbonation. Very smooth and creamy sensation in the palate. Very good

ardeo (337) - Flmalle, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2017
Bouteille. Couleur jaune claire peu engageante mais belle mousse blanche. Armes : crales, herbes, citron, abricot, banane notamment. Bouche et saveurs : ronde, frache avec saveurs fruites/pices, petite amertume et finale sche un peu "savonneuse". Une des meilleures allemandes que jai bu. Plus complexe que ce que je pensais au premier abord.

Jesper86 (100) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 A true classic. Easily one of the best lighter beers. Light does not mean flavourless. There?s plenty of body, flavour and balance for a gold 5,5% beer. Nice foam. Bread, wheat, citrus, banana.

Heidelbeer (25) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 17, 2017
Huge creamy dense off white medium to long lasting head. Beer is dark golden murky. Aroma is dominated by ripe banana yeast and clove. Taste is low to average sweet with notes of banana, yeast and wheat. Finish is creamy, slightly bitter and medium to long lasting. Carbonation is soft medium refreshing. Although its a good Weissbier I personally prefer the bock version Vitus much more since its better in all ways.

Estebanik (1040) - Lublin, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Piana wysoka, trwała, zbita niczym śmietanka. W aromacie przyjemny i intensywny, mączny banan, goździka prawie brak. W smaku wytrawne, kwaskowe, wysoko wysycone. Bananowe, goździk pałęta się w posmaku, ale to leciutko. Klasyczna pszenica, raczej po bananowej stronie mocy.

smaynard6000 (1117) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with average sized foamy white head. Heavy banana and clove aroma. Light bodied with plenty of yeast notes. Easy to drink and very good.

ineedbeer (2120) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 14, 2017
Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Aroma is very fragrant with lots of banana and clove. Some faint bubblegum notes as well. Light wheat notes and no hop character. Pours a hazy, golden straw color with a large, creamy, white head that exhibits very nice retention as it very slowly recedes. Medium lacing and faint legs. Flavor is a bit sweet with some wheat notes and bread. Light bitterness. Fairly ester forward with a lot of banana and hints of bubblegum. Some lighter clove notes. No hop flavor. Esters linger well into the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high to high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice ester and phenolic forward wheat beer. Its solid, but its also not really my jam.
