Had this out of a bottle:
Lovely thick head. Golden/amber liquid deliciousness. As others have said, the carbonation is perfect because you neither notice it or not notice it, if you know what I mean? Lots of weissbiers can be totally flat and so you notice the lack of carbonation but this one is perfect.
When I started with this one, I was comparing it to the Hoegaarden Wit-Blanche, since that is obviously a very good standard of beer in itself. Imo, I thought the head was better, the carbonation better, the taste better and all round drinkability better. And I really like the Hoegaarden, too!
This beer is just so smooth, tasty and drinkable that I found myself polishing it off in no time. I kept sniffing at it and holding it up to the light in between sips and then lingering over the sips, so as to prolong the enjoyment of the sip. I could sit and drink 10 of these and probably still want more. For a hot summer's day, you'll find it difficult to find a better beer (alternating in rounds between this and the Rothaus Pils would probably be close to nirvana)!

Last beer of the night - Sunday session at World of Beer UCF. There is not much more I can add to the body of knowledge about this beer except:
If you like hefeweizn and have not drunk it then you must place it at the top of your drinking list.
If you like American Wheats and want to expand your horizons then this is the beer for you.
Weihenstephaner the Rolls Royce of Beer.
Actually, I can see a Vitus looking longingly out of the fridge ...
