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.

pootzboy (1779) - Kitchener, Ontario, - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle: pours clear gold with a decent puffy 3 finger cap which lasts and laces well. Sharp effervescence. Aroma is mild but has the bisquity-cloves-banana character of a hefeweiss. Easy to drink. Spritzy, dry, fruity biscuity malty, clean dry sharp finish. Enough flavor and character left to satisfy. About as good as gets for a filtered Hefeweizen.

2 x geproefd. laatste keer mei 2016 fles 50 cl van Schotte. Beetje wazig goudblond bijna oranje bier, met royale witte kraag. Aroma: gist, banaan, mout. Medium body. Smaak: granig, gist, zoetje, kruidig, banaan, mini bitterheid. Toch smaakvol in zijn genre.

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.
