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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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.
