Poured in a blind tasting cup

Appearance: Golden yellow, with a thick white head.

Smell: Bananas, wheat.

Taste: bananas; Tastes like a classic hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel: Thin bodied moderate carbonation.

Overall, I tried this during a blind tasting and I preferred the krystal version over this. I wold definitely try this again. I am not really a huge wheat beer fan, but I approve of this one.

Poured the Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen into a Belgian tulip.

A - Pours a dark cloudy yellow with three fingers of puffy white head.

S - Clove, banana, some spice hit the nose. Light wheat aroma in there as well.

T - The taste is spice and clove up front. Some more wheat and light banana mid palate. Truly a classic Hefe here, yummy stuff!

M - Mouthfeel is light to medium, medium to high carbonation. Smooth beer as well.

O - I thought I might rate this a bit higher, the flavor is great but the Hefe is a bit heavy on the finish. Still a very good beer if not the best Hefe out there. Great beer to have in the summer. Recommended! Cheers!
