This is a truly world class beer and the most outstanding Hefeweizen I have ever had! This great elixer poured a perfect hazy golden color with a great big fluffy white head that slowly faded into a slight layer of froth on top the beer. The smell was so good I could have sniffed it all night long! It had a great spice character along with a room filling aroma of clove and bananna and a great bready character as well. The taste was heavenly and just erupted in my mouth with a nice citrus twang in the beginning, followed by a rush of bananna, clove, malt and a great prickely mouthfeel that seemed to excentuate the flavors. If you ever have the opprotunity to get this stuff, do yourself a favor and sample a beer at the top of its field!

Poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Pours a beautiful unfiltered gold color with moderate carbonation and a nice white head. The aroma is very refreshing with a strong sense of clove, fruit and a bit of floral notes. The initial mouthfeel is actually quite sour, but finishes sweet with a strong taste of banana and citrus. Definitely tops my list as a great hefeweizen, I could drink this all day.

On tap at Mr. Dunderbaks, served in a Weizen glass and a side of bratwursts and warm potato salad.

A- A beautiful golden yellow with a multiple finger head that lasted the entire beer. Was easily one of the more beautiful beers I have enjoyed.

S- As mentioned it does have a very nice hint of banana and wheats.

T- A very nice critus taste of some orange, but mostly banana. As well as a nice spice that hits the tongue as it goes down. Very delicious.

M- Smooth, crisp, and refreshing.

D- Drinkability is off the scale. And is my favorite hefe, and could make a great session beer.

Over all: A must try for anyone looking for a great hefe or wheat beer. I can't wait to try one again.

This is, hands down, the best wheat-beer on the open market. I'm not even going to put up a full review because (1) Look at the score (2) Look at the past 20 reviews.

Bet you didn't find even ONE bad one.

If you ever tried wheat-beer and didn't like it, and it wasn't Weihenstephaner, please try it again (the right way).

If you are a wheat-beer lover, and have never had this beer, GET IT.

If you like beer in general, but haven't tried wheat-beer, or this beer, definitely give it a try.

If you EVER see this on tap, GET IT!! And take pics for the masses :)

Poured a gorgeous cloudy, yeasty golden color with a two finger fluffy white head that receded to a ring of white foam leaving lacing on the glass. An excellent appearance, very true to style. Near flawless. Scents of clove, banana, slight citrus, some wheat malt and a low level of vanilla. A very good aroma profile that hits the style dead-on. Nothing is off, everything is present and it's all fantastic. Very nice. Flavor begins with spicy cloves phenols and a bit of banana esters, moving into more clove phenols but now balanced equally with banana esters and a slight citrus-like sourness. An undertone of cracker-like malt is present throughout the entire sip. Finishes with an equal balance of banana esters and clove phenols, with a slight lemony sourness. Aftertaste is spicy clove phenols and faint banana esters. An excellent flavor profile. The main flavors of the style reveal themselves in full form and several of the optional flavors also come into play. Very well done, balanced and refreshing, perfect. Mouthfeel is light bodied, effervescent with high carbonation and a slightly creamy feel. A very nice, refreshing mouthfeel that is perfectly true to style. Overall this is an amazing hefeweizen. Everything about it is a perfect representation of the style, and this is my number one recommendation to anyone who wants to try a good Bavarian hefeweizen.
