Benediktiner Weissbier is not a beer I've ever tried or heard about. From what I gathered on the internet it comes from the Ettal Abbey which is a Benedictiner monastery in Germany- in the Bavarian region.

A- traditional cloudy, unfiltered German wheat beer

S- yummy aroma that spikes your senses- banana, cloves and a hint of peach.

T- a perfect balance of fruity-spicy; not over the top like some weiss beers. It goes down so smooth; adding any fruit would be a travesty for this beer.

M- It's a little drier then most German weiss beers- but refreshingly so.

O- a world class beer. This Benediktiner Weiss was a nice surprise. It might be the best weiss beer I've had in a long time.

A- muddy amber. Some carbonation can be seen rapidly rising amidst the yeasty haze. Fluffy light tan head. Great retention, beautiful lacing.

S- yeast, and lots of it. It also has aromas of lemon and banana.

T- bready, yeasty, some vague fruitiness. Citrus, and caramel.

M- light, velvety carbonation. Creamy finish.

O- good, but it lacks depth.
