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.

I may have gotten a bad bottle because I didn't have anything like what most are describing. Mine was very sharp aand grainy in the mouth and made you want a glass of water when you were done. Will try again and re-rate.

Most adherant to its style. That could be because they invented it. The quintessential German wheat beer with all the great characteristics: Banana and clove aroma, slightly cloudy amber body, and a citrusy finish. Bavarian's are bred on this stuff, and I therefore envy them.

Another tasty German wheat beer. Retains its head all the way down the glass. Crisp and refreshing.

2.9
SilkTork (5806) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 Sept, 2002:Tangy and refreshing with sparkles of tangerine, pineapple, melon, apple and a hint of banana, all balanced by a rubbery yeast that quickly erases one fruit to replace it with another. All this from the oldest brewery in the world (dates from 1040) with its attached brewing university! Easy available here in the UK from most supermarkets. [3.3]
Dec, 2004: Wheat beer. Agreeably pleasant while cold. More character, but less attractive when warming up. [2.9]

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 The oldest brewery in the world. That’s also gotta be worth something. Check it out. A great wheat beer.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2002
Cloudy pale golden in color. Huge head that dissipates to about a finger width at half glass. Citrusy with banana notes and of course cloves. Not too sweet compared with some other hefes. It does have just a touch of bitterness in the finish. I really like German wheats, so this is a mid-pack hefe IMO.

4.5
madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2006 Bottled and Draught. Golden coloured. Unclear. Huge off white head. Aroma of yeast, banana some spices and citrus. Dense and aromatic. Flavour is equally delicious. Loads of banana and fruits, some spices and light yeast. Full bodied. Quite dry and acidic. Balanced. Ends on a dry fruity and citric note. Has light smoky notes. Hard to get a better german hefe in my book.
