Ah, Weihenstephaner. It's been around since 1040, can you believe that? Oldest brewery in the world.
Perfect hazy light brown with a long lasting white head. Smell is spicy, mildly fruity, with a great yeastiness. Taste is refreshing to the max. Sweet wheaty malt starts things off. It blends well with some spicy clove and lemony tartness. Very yeasty. Mouthfeel is creamy and airy. Carbonation holds up until the very end. I could drink this all day, winter or summer. In the top three hefe weizens in the world.

I had previously had this bottled, but the on tap version was spectacular. The only thing I could complain about would be the price, but for a beer of this quality to a wheat beer lover like myself, it was worth a few extra shekels. I would order this anytime and anywhere!

16.9oz bottle at 41 F poured into pint glass. Bottle code is 3363, but I don't have a clue what that means. I would probably guess early December 2013.
Pours cloudy golden with a big white head that dissipates quickly, lots of carbonation. Smell is banana, clove, fruity, yeast, bread, lemon. Smells good.
Taste is all of those things but muted and mild, maybe a little too watery (which may be right for the style, and just out of my preference), but really an excellent combination of flavors.
Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and satisfying, while somehow still light and airy. Overall, excellent beer.
