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.

1 pt 9 oz bottle poured into 16 oz weizen
Blood orange, yeast turbid, a tinge of amber hue at the base.
S: Clove, spice, and wheat malt
T: Banana, wheat, clove, bubblegum, and a nice refreshing finish
M: Perfect for a weissbier
Overall, buy this beer! If I ever see this on draught, I am grabbing it! This is a rare find, but remember the name.

One of the best looking Weissbiers I've seen. The head was so thick and creamy, almost like the meringue on pie. Gorgeous color, nice and hazy, and plenty of bready aromas coming off the nose. Palate offers plenty of wheaty/bready flavors with nice tang from the yeast, minimal hop influence, and excellent drinkability. Carbonation felt a little low for the style, however. Very impressed with this new beer to my market.

Pours beautifully into my Weihenstephan, a brilliant clouded golden orange glow looks amazing. Big cloudy thicket of textured billowing head rises well above the rim of the glass. Intricate scattered lacing lines the sides of the tall weissbier glass. Aroma has tart apple esters in the forefront with spiced bread hints of banana from the yeast esters. Balanced sweet caramelized sugars, tart fruit again sliced apples/ripened banana comes to mind. The spicy yeast really compliments the malts and esters, mild herbal grassiness arrives as well this is world class German hefeweizen. Mouthfeel is effervescent with sturdy carbonation, not overdone never cloying even with some pretty sweet components just a really well made hefe. Overall I could drink this on any sunny day, I hope to catch more bottles this summer. I had never seen the label so I picked it up on a whim, glad that I did.
