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.

4.21/5 rDev -4.5%

Poured into my new Schneider weizen glass.
A: Cloudy yellow golden rod with very active carbonation, two inch head with lacing all around.
S: Bananas on front, slight yeast scent on back-end, turns a little bready or nutty as it matures.
T: Slightest of orange on the very front end that quickly vanishes, mellow banana and wet walnuts throughout as the prominent characteristics. I wanted a stronger taste here, but still enjoyable.
M: Light, smooth, and refreshing with a medium carbonation that turns high and bitey on the back-end.
O: Beautiful appearance, great carbonation, and bananas throughout. Love it. Looking forward to enjoying weizens this coming spring and summer.
