bottle poured into wheat beer glass

A - pours up a dark amber maybe the same color as an apricot, slightly cloudy at first, eventually clearing, with excellent lacing at good lacing.

S - spicy sweet nose with a definite banana aroma.

T - very crisp tasting with the usual banana and clove notes. However, where some beers are a bit too much in your face with the banana stuff this beer has subdued them somehow or another. The finish is satisfyingly sweet, never becoming cloying.

M - very clean with virtually no aftertaste

O - no ones seems to do weizen styles better than the Germans. While the USAs best offering are often hop forward, Weihenstephaner always seems to brew beer that is complex and interesting without going to extremes. This one is a definite yes as Daniel Bryan would say.

Poured from a bottle into a Weizen glass.

A - Pours a murky, toffee-brown with a fluffy, three-finger, eggshell colored head with good retention. Stripes of spider-web like lacing.

S - Medium strength aroma of banana, pear, clove, and fresh baked wheat bread. Smells inviting.

T - Taste matches the nose, but with additional note of fine ground white pepper. The darker malts reduce some of the clove flavor of the normal Hefe, but bring more balance in return. Fruity and bready; almost cake-like. Really, really tasty. Nicely complex and rich flavor.

M - Light bodied, with prickly carbonation. A delightful creaminess makes this feel thick and smooth. Finishes crisp and clean.

O - Fantastic. Best example of the style I have had and a definitely rebuy. Well crafted.
