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 :)
