4.38/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier poured into a weizen glass delivers a wonderfully opaque, unfiltered gamboge colour, a sparse amount of bubbles ascend to the magnificently massive cream-white crown which withstands the fall of time in all its majesty for a long period, leaving its inheritance in the shape of sporadic lacing -- hail to the king!

Smell: Obviously bananas 'n' carrots. just like you know it should when it comes to weissbrewskis, some cloves and a whiff of black pepper comes to notice along with the yeasty undertones which functions as base for this otherwise pretty sweet experience.

Taste: Corresponding to what we got in the smell compartment, however the carrots tend to -- thankfully -- dominate over the bananas which seem to be quickly replaced by a peachy/apple-like sourness. The whole ride is finished of with a luring and gentle bitterness interlaced with the aforementioned yeastiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium full and very creamy yet somewhat coarse in texture, medium-low in carbonation.

Drinkability: Concerning weissbier, do they come off as any better than this one, the archetype if you will, 'nuff said; verdrinken -- schnell!

On a sidenote: The brewery is founded in 1040, man back then we'd barely heard of hvitekrist/the son of man/the ultimate irony (get it? a carpenter being nailed to some wood) up here in the grim and frostbitten kingdoms...
