I have only really had 2 kinds of Hefe Weizen's before. One was on tap in Leavenworth, WA and I just cant seem to get the brewers name. However, this beer has came very close to the smooth and heaven like Hefe Weizen I tasted before. The beer has great color and head. The smell is full. The taste is very well rounded and anytime in the mood to really just sit down with a beer and appreciate its existence, this is my go too.

"The origin of Hofbräu Hefe Weizen dates back to 1589 and since then the "Weisse" has a distinctive place in the history of Hofbräu München. Hofbräu Hefe Weizen is characterized by its sparkling, by its rich foam and naturally by its unforgettable refreshing taste.

Poured from a 11.2 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp, fizzy smooth white foam head over a moderately hazy amber-yellow body. Carbonation is abundant and clarity is higher than expected amongst a standard Hefeweizen. Retention is below average and no lacing is left behind. 3

(Smell) Aromas of sweet, heavy banana bread and cloves up front. A faint grassy and herbal note provides some aromatic complexity and little bitterness. A light bready wheat malt with subtle fruit-yeast undertones rounds out the beer. A very bright and full-flavored aroma with a great deal of Potency is medium+. 4

(Taste) A bit more rounded out in the flavor, but very impressive still. Smooth, silky wheat malt base with a light syrup sweetness, very clean. Banana and clove are more reserved but still play a significant role in the finishing flavor, and joined with traces of orange peel, pair flawlessly with the delicate sweetness of the malt for a perky faintly spiced finish. Very clean and highly drinkable, I'd file it under amongst some of the best-tasting Hefeweizen. 4.25

(Mouthfeel) Malt body is slightly sweet, slick and chewy. Carbonation adds some mild crispness and fluffiness to pair. Body is medium for the style, medium overall. Alcohol presence is very low. Balance is slightly sweet over bitter. 4

(Overall) Another fortunate find that I was more than pleased to have, Hofbräu has crafted a very timeless recipe amongst a timeless style. American breweries try, but many still can't pull off the balance, cleanliness, fullness of flavors and delicate characters quite like this beer does. Incredibly drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable, It may not be the finest Hefeweizen on planet earth, but it puts in more than its fair share of effort to yield fantastic results. 4
