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.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 This is the second beer I?ve had from the world?s oldest brewery, and both are top-ten material. This one has a little more bite than the hefeweisen, so it tanks a little lower. Other than that it?s pretty much perfect.

jookos (6683) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2017
bottle (alko, probably- has been sitting on my shelf a while now). golden, clear. nice weiheny spicy clovy phenolic, sweet banana estery nose. malted wheaty sweet, bit thin all though. med bodied, nice soft malted cereals sweet, filling fresh feeling. the softest, roundest, nicest malted wheat in flavour, pillowy, with a bit of that weihen hefe- yeasty spices. excellent flavour. tad dissapointed in the intensity though, guess a lot that i love about weihenstephans weisse gets trapped when filtering.

Bottle. Clear golden beer, large creamy white head, decent lacing. Aroma of wheat, spices, clove, banana. Taste is light sweet: banana, clove, spices, some bread. Light+ body, average to lively carbonation, thin texture. Quite refreshing example of useless style.

Jabic (537) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - APR 1, 2017
Ar: Medium intensity peach and lean banana; a very slight amount of black pepper and clove; soft, full, and pale malt. Ap: Crystal-clear gold; medium white head with moderate retention, leaves a fine cap of foam, finely bubbled ring, and a spare web of foam sticking to the glass sides. T: Fresh banana and peach skin; low bitterness, slightly herbal, with a fair amount of sweetness; touch of black pepper and clove; a touch of tannin and soft bread on the finish. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Excellent filtered German wheat; all of the hallmark flavors--banana, peach, pepper, clove--at pleasant, balanced levels; beautiful clarity, with spot-on mouthfeel.

drdisque (822) - Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2017
From 500ml poured in an English Pint. This beer retains all of its rich wheatey character and sweet slightly tangy flavor while losing the graininess and creaminess. The prototype of Kristallweizens.

EvanFriend (570) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Spicy, citrus, and herbal aroma; taste is banana, clove, spiciness, and a late/aftertaste that I can only describe as cheesecake.

17Beer (326) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Big sour wheat smells. It pours clear and bubbly gold with a big bright white head with tiny bubbles. Nice weiss notes to the flavor with an unexpected sweet malty finish. Sparkling carbonation with constantly rising champagne-like bubbles. Super fresh and refreshing. Must be awesome at the source.
