A-Pours an unusual yellowy, light amber color. Body is lightly milky. Big, cake batter head. Head never dies away. Keeps its girth but doesn't lace too much; its being quite stingy.

S-Estery and spicy with a hint of mustiness and some clear banana fruitiness. Cloves and light cocoa powder.

T-Banana bread with light chocolate undertones. Maybe chocolate chip banana bread muffins? Cloves and well cooked toast. Slightly tart. Tons of different flavors. There is an earthy, nuttiness to it and also a milk chocolate note (Nutella?).

M-Drinks easy but it has that pillowy mouthfeel that a great Dunkel should possess. Creamy yet light.

O/D-This brought a lot to the table. Its cheap, its complex, its easy drinking and its mysterious. I can see why anything with the Weihenstephaner label is regarded as beer royalty.

500ml bottle poured into pilsener glass.

A - Pours a light red-brown with some haze. A massive, 3+ finger head developed, and stuck around a while. Great looking beer.

S - Lot's of malt up front. Hints of banana, citus fruit and a bit of yeast. Quite powerful.

T - Wheat beers really aren't my thing, but I'm always willing to try new beers. I actually really liked this stuff. Lot's of malt and yeast going on, with a hint of banana bread. I wouldn't mind if the banana taste were a little more subtle. Overall, a pretty solid beer.

F - Light, with a medium crispness. Felt good going down and on the tounge. Not exactly a golf course beer, but I can see this being refreshing on a hot day.

O - Again, wheat beers really aren't my style. This is one of, if not the best wheat beer I've ever had. It's nothing that I'll sprint to the store to buy more of, but I'd highly recommend it to any wheat beer or strong flavored beer in general fans.
