Outside of the hefeweissbier served at the Andechs Monastery in Munich from their oak barrel, this is the best hefeweissbier you will ever drink. Perfection in a glass. One of my favorite beers of all time. Ayinger's hefeweissbier comes close but Weihenstephaner have mastered the hefeweissbier.
Pours a hazy, golden-hued liquid into a weissbier glass. Head is perfect as not too much and not too little. Lacing is light. Smell is light citrus, bright cloves and subtle malt. Mouthfeel is light on carbonation and alcohol. Taste is a brilliant explosion of malt, bready yeast, clove/banana and delicate sweetness. Finish is smoother than water off a duck's back. No bitterness at all. While most weissbiers lean one way or the other on the sweetness scale, Weihenstepher nails the balance perfectly. One of the best beers in the world.

Pours a cloudy, orangish yellow color in a weizen glass with a really nice head that leaves a little lacing on the glass as it disappears.
Smell is excellent. I get that classic hefeweizen smell of clove, and other spices as well as the wheat malts.
Taste is right on target, just as you would suspect from the great smell. I get the spices and wheat malts. Best beer I have ever tasted!
Mouthfeel is great. Good carbonation that really cleanses the pallet.
Overall, really excellent beer. I have only been rating beers a few months but this one is my favorite so far. If you want a good wheat beer you should give this one a try.
