UPDATED: JUL 8, 2003 As good as any hefe on the planet. Soft, subtle, and possessed of the perfect bannana-clove flavor, this brew is unimaginably refreshing on hot days. Its good to see the progenitor of so many German beers finally get some notice in the States. weeicemon (126) - Lancaster, California, USA - MAR 13, 2001
Fresh and crisp this is a beer for a hot summer day. Perhaps a little too yeasty but well done. Oakes (18209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2000
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Hazy, bubbly. Dull tan. Lots of fluffy head. Fresh slightly fruity, kind of sticky body. The aroma is oriented towards fairly clean banana and some light spiciness. The palate is clean, somewhat dry towards the finish. This classic yeast is used all over, so the beer isn’t particularly distinctive, but it is a very nice weizen.

This is a top-notch hefe, right up there with Paulaner. It has a wonderful cloudy appearance, a nice yeasty aroma, and a fine, light taste reminiscent of bananas (but only just enough). A most refreshing beer and an outstanding example of what a hefe should be. kenk99 (168) - Leonia, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2000
Of all the readily-available
Weissbiers (Paulaner, Franziskaner,
Aventinus, etc.) Weihenstephaner Hefe
Weissbier is the best! Don't ruin it

Very good Hefe. A little thicker than the paulener and seemed to have a little more taste to boot. beergirl99 (101) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2000
This is so close to Paulaner, I think I would need to have a head to head test to decide which was best. This is a really nice hefe. Jimmylib (169) - old bridge, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2000

This is the best hefeweizen I've had thus far. Edged out Paulaner by a nose (no pun intended). This hefe defines the style in my opinion, cloudy appearance, lighter in color, moderate head, easy on the palate and smooth finish with tons of body and character. A must try.

Is the listed brewer right? Sweden?
Anyway - I just enjoyed this fresh on
tap with a plate of knackwurst, potatoes,
and sauerkraut. Very nice. Both the aroma
and flavor were rich with hints of clove, lemon,
and maybe even a wee bit of licorice.
This was full-flavored and refreshing.
A great hefeweizen.
