A - Crisp classic Blue on White Bavarian crested label with matching cap as crown dresses this 500 ml bottle in style. Head rises out of the bottle as I pop the top - I don't remember agitating it. Thin head dissipates quickly to near nothingness - no retention. Maelstrom of carbonation ascends through light golden amber clouds.

S - Bananas, flowers and cloves; yeast and hops; fresh wet grass; apple, plum, prune.

T - Bread, straw, grain, malt, yeast, clove and bananas. Crisp and refreshing. Lingering dry grain.

M - Crisp and refreshing with mild slick viscosity. Balanced finish.

D - Oh my. At 5.4% ABV, we can have as much as we like and STILL invade Poland!

Top of the line when it comes to German wheat beers. A beautiful golden color and thick white head brings a fabulous aroma of wheat and banana. A very light body makes for a great drink at any time of the year. If you haven't experienced this beer, go out and find it as soon as you can.

A-The body is the haziest of orange, capped off by mountains of off-white head. Infinite finger thick is the head. It keeps building and growing and spilling out of your glass. Once the head finally falls you can start to see the cascading lace. The lace doesn't cling nor does it fall fast, it streams down in a relaxing fashion. So cloudy is the body and yet it shines like sun-bright egg yolks when held to light. Magic.

S-Banana. Clove. Cinnamon. Bubblegum. Candy sweet. Wheat. Dark bread. Take a hunk of banana bread and sniff it. Now sniff this beer. No difference. The beer will probably smell even better with a smorgasbord of scents on display.

T-Banana. Banana bread. Walnuts, almonds, buttery sweet nuts. Sweet wheat. Honey. Flashes of lemon & orange, very minimal. World class taste.

M-A watery yet still medium body is soft and refreshing. Medium carbonation is aided by beautiful spicy dry clove notes to where you become unsure which is tingling your tongue more: carbonation or spiced yeast? The sip starts, continues and ends in a harmonious fashion: Sweet, bready, lemony tart, mildly-to-heavily spiced and drying. The after-feel is super yeasty and peppery. Your taste-buds stand on end. Like all good things, it just "feels right".

O-The best Hefeweizen. A beer in which I can think of no area to improve in. In fact, stop reading as I'll stop reviewing and lets drink us some Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier.
