Weihenstephaner has a long history of brewing great beers, and it definitely shows here...

A: This beer poured a cloudy golden typical of a good well-made hefe-weizen with little to no head but with a good amount of carbonation flowing through after the pour.

S: Very citrusy, definite lemon/orange scents strike right away with a nice malty sweetness and some slightly yeasty smells lingering in the background.

T: Right away the citrus that was apparent in the aroma strikes and gives a nice refreshing flavor, followed by some malty sweetness to balance the zest. Again following the aroma, with a nice yeasty finish and a hint of hoppy bitterness.

M: Very refreshing flavor just as hefe's should have. Coats the mouth well without being too thick and has a nice bubbly carbonation that gives a nice finish.

Overall I really enjoyed this beer and have drank many since my original tasting. Definitely a must drink as a great cornerstone of the world's oldest brewery!

4.85/5  rDev +10%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Look: Yellowish orange in color with a 1.5 inch white head and great retention with some spotty lacing

Smell: Wheat citrus and a bit of funk

Taste: The beer starts off with a bright crisp citrus character and is backed up by some banana and clove notes and finishes with a touch of wheat and spice

Mouthfeel: Thin body and ample carbonation

Overall: This is hands down the best example of the style I have ever had and per style is almost perfect. I would have liked a bit more on the nose but I am just nit picking at this point
