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 am making a political statement with my rating of this beer. One, I think this is the best wheat beer on the market. Two, I love reading the ratings on this site and I respect the beer knowledge of the reviewers; however, unless its a big, high alcohol beer nothing ever merits much more than a 4.5 ranking. As king of wheat beers, I give this a 5.0. The first one I have given. And the perfect time of year ... check back in the autumn, I might have to rerate ... I think that I am lost in a moment right now.

Big nose - spicy, yeasty, and bananas. Cloudy orange color. Lost a point because the head went down too quick. Fat wheaty taste with citrus tones (lemon) and banana. Chewy. Clean palette and a nice balance. Possible the standard against which all other German Wheats should be measured.

Wonderful: Banana and vanilla with hints of butter. Nice cloud, murky orange body. Fullmouth taste. An Excellent Wheat!

For some reason this summer I’ve been more interested in exploring belgian wits than revisiting german hefe’s, as I didn’t remember ever being wowed by a hefe before. This beer changes my opinion. It is so incredibly crisp and sharp in flavor. Not nearly as much residual sweetness as many hefes. More clovey than banana-y with restrained fruitiness. This is a superstar hefe, and I will find a place for this in my refrigerator for the rest of the summer.

strong taste of banannas as is the norm for this type of beer. Yellow and cloudy appearance. Medium lacing and moderate carbonation. Decent beer.

Very sweet. Almost like root beer. This very distinctive taste just might become a favorite of mine. I think I tasted cloves, but I think German law prohibits adding any spices to the beer. This is a great great beer!
