A delight to find iin Nigeria. 500ml bottle poured into tulip glass; a nice 3-finger fluffy white head, very persistent, leaving lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass; cloudy ambercolor; Big aroma of wheat, cloves, malt, some light citrus and hint of banana; nice sweet malty taste with a little citrus bite; creamy smooth feel on the tongue makes me want another.

500 ml bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My first encounter with a bottle of Weihenstephaner.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a bit of a darker golden body than expected. Three big fluffy fingers of white head. Some spotty fluffy lacing. Standard appearance, but looks good for what it is.

S - The aroma is simple, yet befitting of the style. Lots of yeasty / clove spiciness.

T - The taste is classic of the style - creamy, yeasty, crisp, bready, floral, and spicy.

M - The feel is very crisp, clean, and easy-drinking. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, hefeweizens have never been my favorite, but this is clearly a well-executed and refined example of the style. Looking forward to trying more from Weihenstephaner.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier -----4/5.

For me, on this night, the beer tasted somewhat metallic.
I am new to this but wonder if I just got a bad one. Loved the kristallweiss that I had a couple of days ago but was not as impressed by this one. Will have to try it again. Wish I could find some sort of date on the bottle.

Billowing white head, fantastic retention.

Smell and taste of lager flavours, bready wheat, slight citrus/berry with a tinge of earthiness. Smooth, creamy, yeasty, and crisp. This has it all.

Deliciously made and well crafted beer with a subtle hint of banana flavor.

This is the first German beer I have tried and is by far my favorite beer, now I underatand why they say Germany makes the best beer. I recently turned 21 and started trying different types of beer to find what I like, and well this is a winner.

Poured cloudy with a orange hue. Low head and retention...probably not a well-cleaned glass. I get some of the banana esters I was expecting, but not too much. Closest smell I can think of is canned corn. Taste is where this brew moves up a notch. Full-flavored hefe with better mouthfeel than most. Nice finish as well. Pretty much a go-to hefe, and the decision is even easier considering how reasonably priced this usually is.

This is flat out one of my favorite beers. I am a huge fan of the style, so I am a little biased. When it comes to Hefeweizen I feel this is one that others should be compared to. Great body, aroma, and flavor. Top of the class!
