12oz bottle (coded 0100, drank 9-17-2010) into Franziskaner weizen glass (because I'm too cheap to order a Weihenstephaner one). 4 finger tall white foamy head generated on a gentle pour, slowly recedes to about 1 finger a while after pouring the yeasty sediment through the head. Some traces of foam leave themselves on the glass as the beer is drunk down. Nice hazy dark straw to light gold color.
Aroma of clean lemon banana, light hint of cloves. Taste bit of sweet lemon citrus, yeast, banana, and grape soda note. Midway the carbonation and wheat give a twangy feel on the tongue. Nice yeasty wheat bread, banana custard, and cloves on the finish with just the barest touch of bitterness in there.
Medium-high carbonation tickles the tongue nicely. Also the yeasty sediment gives it extra body and mouthfeel.
So tasty and delish! So very drinkable, a classic and an all-time favorite! Makes me wonder what this must taste like in person at the brewery fresh!?! Probably like heaven-sent ambrosia...

4.21/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 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.
