This beer is as close to perfection as it gets! Pours a murky straw yellow with hints of orange sunset. Massive finger length head retains throughout, the lace creamy and sticky! Aroma has a pleasant fruity ester, with a prominent orange rind feel as well as yeasty tones. Wonderful taste, simple but flavorful in all of its elements, citric with hints of lemon and orange, wheat, and yeast and a slightly dry finish. Great feel; creamy, smooth, light body. A lively carbonation is ever present.
This is so drinkable, I feel I could have like three of these in a row! Crisp and refreshing! Will have again and again and again!

My example of the perfect beer! An exceptional balance of Bavarian Hefe flavors and smoothness. This is where the bar is set for Bavarian-style Hefeweizen.

Poured from a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier bottle into a weissbier glass:

Appearance: A cloudy yellowish, yeasty luminescent color topped by a three finger-width white head that leaves decent lacing on the glass.

Aroma: A light fruity fragrance with slight clove accents.

Taste: More carbonation than a Franziskaner, with a tangy, fruity aftertaste that does not disappoint.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, some carbonation on the tongue and creaminess.

Overall: This is a very good Hefeweizen, not quite as good as a Franziskaner, in my opinion, but definitely up there.
