COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our golden-yellow crystal-clear wheat beer the fresh citrus flavour harmonises very well with spicy banana notes. The fine sparkling gives it a tangy and animated appearance. Throughout summer and winter, its a prickling experience. It goes well with fish, seafood, white meat or it can be enjoyed as an aperitif. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Bottle. Aroma of grain / yeast, bubblegum, and spices. Light bodied and nice to drink on a warm day. However, the aftertaste is unappetizing.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Pretty good aroma; clove, bubbelgum, and banana. Clear and golden; large white head. First for the style; really not as good as most hefes. Dry finish. Decen to good palate. Refreshing, but maybe just not a favorite style of mine.

Lacks a strong nose. Cloves, bananas, yeast. Pretty typical wheat beer. Drinkable, as alcohol should be.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle. Nose is tons of yeast and grassy wheat. Extremely clear yellow, thin white ring of head with heavy carbonation filtering towards the top. Taste is same as the nose, wheat and yeast. Exactly spot on for the style, but I dont care much for the style. Palate is smooth and punctuated by a slight dryness in the finish.

Light yellow, bubbles come up like crazy, light fluffy head. Aroma of lemongrass and wheat. Strong wheat flavor with hints of citrus. Very tasty and refreshing.

Beautiful beer! Literally. Must be poured like I got it here at Bodega downtown La Crosse, in a tall weisse beer glass - then it looks so efervescent; almost glowing. Great offwhite foamy huge head with lots of lace. Immensely satisfying yet light and refreshing. Lovely typical esthery aroma, great fruity carbonated flavor. Body to match. Brilliant yellow gold color. Im enjoying it with salted roasted giant Chinese soy beans. *burp*

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Crystal clear gold body with a huge, pillowy white head. Aroma of banana and clovy, like a hefe. Flavor has more of the same, with a hoppy bite and lots of effervescence. Finishes sweet and tart. My first sample of an interesting style.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Pours suck a pale yellow it is almost void of any color at all. Large expanding foamy head. Aroma is light fruit, pear and apple, with notes of wheat. Foam sings like a bowl of Rice Krispies. Very light and smooth drinking, bit of an oily feel, with a bit of spice in the flavor with preludes a gentle warmth. Very nice.

500ml bottle: Yellow straw colour beer, with a huge frothy pure white head, generous carbonation visible. Wheaty nose, sweet with hints of lemon, some spicy esters also apparent. Light flavours of spice and banana esters, wheat is at the fore smooth, rolls along the tongue effoertlessly , some citric elements come into play, fast dry finish. A very drinkable beer from Germany and my first Kristallweizen..
