I'm reviewing the newest incarnation of this beer, which is no longer brewed by Ettal. It is now produced by a joint venture called Benediktiner Weißbräu and actually brewed by Licher Privatbrauerei. The front label is exactly the same as this picture; both beers are actually called Benediktiner Weissbier.

Poured into a weizen glass. Pours a medium orange amber. Nice two finger white head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of wheat, malt and light cloves. Flavor of wheat and mild citrus with light fruit and malt flavors developing, finishes with wheat and bready malt, a touch sour. Flavors are mild, but this weissbier is refreshing and a bit unusual in the light fruit components of the flavor. Light bodied, but decent carbonation gives a good mouth feel.
