What can I say that isn't already known about this beer. This is the ultimate form (thanks Plato) of the Hefeweissbier. World class for sure.

Absolute quintessential heffeweisebeer; the creme de la creme of beers. Flavor, look, body, nose and finish are world class. You simply cannot deny the excellence within the bottle, try as you may.

A delight to find iin Nigeria. 500ml bottle poured into tulip glass; a nice 3-finger fluffy white head, very persistent, leaving lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass; cloudy ambercolor; Big aroma of wheat, cloves, malt, some light citrus and hint of banana; nice sweet malty taste with a little citrus bite; creamy smooth feel on the tongue makes me want another.

500 ml bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first encounter with a bottle of Weihenstephaner.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bit of a darker golden body than expected. Three big fluffy fingers of white head. Some spotty fluffy lacing. Standard appearance, but looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is simple, yet befitting of the style. Lots of yeasty / clove spiciness.

T - The taste is classic of the style - creamy, yeasty, crisp, bready, floral, and spicy.

M - The feel is very crisp, clean, and easy-drinking. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, hefeweizens have never been my favorite, but this is clearly a well-executed and refined example of the style. Looking forward to trying more from Weihenstephaner.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier -----4/5.

For me, on this night, the beer tasted somewhat metallic.
I am new to this but wonder if I just got a bad one. Loved the kristallweiss that I had a couple of days ago but was not as impressed by this one. Will have to try it again. Wish I could find some sort of date on the bottle.

Billowing white head, fantastic retention.

Smell and taste of lager flavours, bready wheat, slight citrus/berry with a tinge of earthiness. Smooth, creamy, yeasty, and crisp. This has it all.
