Appearance is a golden yellow with a foamy head.
Aroma is banana bread, bananas foster. Grainy.
Taste is less banana and more bread but still really good. Maybe some spices or clove.
Mouthfeel is crisp with good carbonation.
Great example of the style.

Had this on Tap with some German Sausage and it was the perfect paring.

Appearance was great..smell very good some banana maybe some cloves. good head nice bready taste but not too much. very refreshing and easy drinking.

I guess when you make a beer for over 1000 years you master your craft.

Cheers

12/05/12 On Tap. A truly great beer as long as you're not expecting a hop extravaganza. To me this is a great version of a true Old World style. Forget all the BS drink this stuff. I guess since they have been at it since 725 AD, they have it together.

Yet another delicious, sessionable treat from Weinstephaner. Poured into a Weizen glass.

A - Nice hazy yellow-orange color, with tons of head and lacing. Mild signs of carbonation.

S - some citrus and wheat aromas, but mild in comparison to the taste.

T - Orange, banana, some sweetness. A perfect summer beer.

M - Rich, creamy, full, low carbonation, smooth.

O - Extremely satisfying and delicious. So well made.
