A - A cloudy golden color. Acceptable head with moderate lacing. This beer also contains high amounts of carbonation.
S - Two words - Banana bread. Additional citrus notes linger. It truly it a powerful smelling brew as opposed to the other competing Hefeweizens.
T - A strong wheaty/bready/grainy taste with a definite banana infusion. Extremely crisp, and very refreshing. Cloves are very apparent though somewhat overshadowed by the banana.
M - Crisp and dry. High carbonation adds a fair amount of bite (enough to keep it interesting.)
D - Good drinkability. Weihenstephaner is a delicious beer and one of my favorite wheat beers. If you like wheat beers you cannot go wrong with this one, but if you are just starting out with them you might find this one a little overwhelming.
In retrospect, if you like wheat beers this one might end up being at the top of your list. Its a shame that in my area I have a rather hard time finding it, but that doesn't keep me from searching store shelves in hopes of finding it again and again.

Poured into an IPA glass, or cervoise glass?
Look: Cloudy rusted wheat body. Pure white head with great retention and spots of lacing.
Aroma: A lot of wheat, malts, banana, and even faint strawberry or other tart fruits.
Taste: Very grainy and malty up front. The banana is subdued and there is a pleasant spiciness I find in the taste.
Mouthfeel: A bit bright, carbonated.
Overall: Just absolutely solid.
