A classic hefeweiss brewed at the world's oldest brewery. A beer I've had many times but bought anew for purposes of review.

Poured into a classic tall weissbeer glass. Displays a huge puffy head that floats atop a hazy golden liquid with lots of swirling bubbles. Aroma displays banana, vanilla, and light clove, with just a hint of citrus. The mouthfeel explodes with big carbonation and light body. Flavor is a nice blend of banana/vanilla with underlying spiciness. The key is in the balance - all the flavor elements blend nicely and nothing dominates. Many other hefe's tend to be heavy on one element or another but this one is perfect.

Overall, this is IMO the finest example of the style available outside Germany. A must try for any lover of the German hefeweiss style.

4.54/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

appearance- golden yellow with an extremely slight amber hue in the middle. Foamy, two finger head produced.

aroma- sweet notes of wheat, orange/banana

Taste- Very similar to nose and par for the course with the expected hefe flavors. Where this is unique is that there is a slight vanilla flavor that melds perfectly with the creamy texture of the beer.

Feel- As stated before this has a great creamy texture, while being clean and incredibly drinkable.

Overall- Great beer and certainly one of, if not, the best Hefe's I've tried so far. The vanilla creaminess aspect definitely separates this from the pack.
