Poured from a 500 mL bottle.

Light brown in color big slightly off-white head.  Something was off with the aroma.  Minimal lacing on the glass.  The usual hefe traits of banana and cloves were there, but it had a faint soapy smell to it.  Luckily, it was not picked up in the flavor and did not take away from what was an enjoyable mix of fruit and spice.  Light to medium bodied and plenty of carbonation. 

I had this side by side with Ayinger Ur-Weiss and preferred the Ayinger.  Comparably, they were very similar in flavor but the Ayinger had it beat in aroma and had a little more body to it.  I will come back to this beer again as I am a huge fan of Weihenstephaner's original Hefeweissbier and they are great values at < $3/bottle.
