Just got back from Iraq and wanted to start myself off with a good Hefe so knowing Weihenstephaner to be pretty damn good, i selected this bad boy as my first beer, straight out of the sandbox. That being said:

A: I always love the crisp look of this beer, its golden aura just stands light years away from other "Yellow Water" beers (i.e.: Budweiser, Miller, etc). The head...well, it just doesnt want to go away. It is creamy, thick and most of all likes hanging around. Threw this one into a weizen glass and the head combined with the pale, crisp color and the crazy storm of carbonation (at the onset anyway) just pales in comparison to most other Hefe's. The only downside is that you can just see the bubbles start dying or slowing down and its just...sad.

S: citrusy, fruity, like it should pretty much lol. Good smell

T: great taste, its refreshing, cleanses the palate and just prepares you for another sip. Its as if this just gets better after every sip. Or it could be that i'm biased since its my first one for the past year and its just delicious :)

M: Invigorating and cleansing. You can just imagine eating some sort of flavorful dish and this would be the type of beer that just washes the taste away and leaves your tastebuds awaiting more.

O: Solid, Solid beer. I cant go as far as saying that i love it, as I am a Dubbel kinda guy, but this is just a great, overall beer. Anytime i have company over, i get this, or if its a BYOB thing (so i dont show up others by coming in with a corked bottle of some Trappist and looking like a snobby, a-hole) but i'll bring this. Its a great beer and trying to pronounce the name is always a good conversation starter :)
