Poured a 500ml into my Weihenstephaner glass, it fit perfectly! Imagine that. The four-finger head is a brilliant white, fat and short-lived. Dying, it sticks itself to the walls of my glass. The beer is extremely clear and pale straw-yellow in color. It simply screams "drink me!"
So I did.
This is basically a clearer, cleaner and lighter version of Weihenstephaner's own Hefe, which is to say it's not *quite* as good as that stellar brew. Lemon, lightly sweet malt, clove-spice, sour banana and a pleasing crisp, grassy, hop note pervade both the aroma and taste. Mouthfeel is well-nigh perfect, thin and sharp, bubbly, with a lingering grassy-sour finish and a touch of dryness.
This is the kind of beer to drink outside on the porch with your mates while watching the economy crumble. Super refreshing and delightful, Weihenstephaner has done it again.
