I approached this offering with reverence and an open mind. I respect that this is considered one of the bets beers in the world but my sense that hefes are a pretty bland style might be hard to overcome.

Poured a light yellowish copper with two big fingers of head that pretty quickly dissipated down to a thin film. This offering was quite effervescent. The nose has notes of wheat and funky yeast. The flavor follows the nose.

I tried to like this beer but there is just nothing special here. It may be the best hefe made but that makes it the king of a pretty tiny hill.

Pours a cloudy, orangish yellow color in a weizen glass with a really nice head that leaves a little lacing on the glass as it disappears.

Smell is excellent. I get that classic hefeweizen smell of clove, and other spices as well as the wheat malts.

Taste is right on target, just as you would suspect from the great smell. I get the spices and wheat malts. Best beer I have ever tasted!

Mouthfeel is great. Good carbonation that really cleanses the pallet.

Overall, really excellent beer. I have only been rating beers a few months but this one is my favorite so far. If you want a good wheat beer you should give this one a try.
