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, it’s 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.

This is my second Weihenstephaner beer. Second beer is like the first in the sense that the aroma and taste are intense and unique. Put aside the commercial description. It tastes to me like der Biermeister took a wheat beer, went over to his cast iron skillet of wurst and sauerkraut drippings, poured in a teaspoon per liter, then filtered into the bottle before capping and resting. Really. Perfect accompaniment for a wurst-based meal. But even before the first flame lit on the stove top, I could smell and taste the wurst and kraut.

Bottle from beer supermarket near Hamburg. I was quite ignorant of the difernece between kristall and hefeweizen but this beer helped me understand the difference. I much prefer the unfiltered version. The alcohol is a bit blunter here and the finish less smooth. Fine but ive me a hefe anyday.

L: -pours a clear straw golden with a medium to big,foamy,white head -medium to high carbonation visible S: -banana,white bread,doughy,honey,clove,hay T: -banana,white bread,doughy,citrus,fish,salty,grainy,herbal F: carbonation -light to medium body O: A pretty big downgrade from their Hefeweizen. The finish is really weird.Up until then it’s decent. The Kristallweizen from Paulaner, Franziskaner or Maisel are superior to this.

Mishnok (401) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Really good looking beer. Nice to have a crystal clear beer with nice carbonation and frothy head. Typical wheat beer taste with malty banana yeasts. I think I like this a little better than the regular hefe weissbier ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500 ml bottle. Brilliant brassy gold color. Medium sized creamy white head. Wheat malt nose has notes of sweet banana, cloves and Monkberry moon delight. Sweet wheat malt flavor is tangy and yeasty with lemony notes. Quite good and very Bavarian.
