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.
