My favorite beer There are quite a lot of wiesse beirs out there but this one is the best tasting one by far. I have a little cheat I do with the citrus add. I use rose's lime juice adds a bit more sweetness to the drink.

Still prefer Weihenstephan but this is a great go-to hefe. Smoother than Paulaner and very sessionable. Poured from a can into 500ml Weihenstephan hefe glass.

it pours a hazy straw yellow color with a foamy white head. The smell is of bananas but very light just enough to know it is there. The taste is of bananas and wheat with a nice amount of sweetness coming through. It has a good carbonation to it, overall a enjoyable hefewizen.

Look - poured from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy, with a color that resembles apple cider. moderate carbonation with little lacing.
Smell - fruity with bananas and some sweetness. nothing out of the ordinary.
Taste - as expected, slight sweetness with good wheat and banana flavor. generously carbonated and has a strong wheat flavor with additional fruitiness.
Feel - medium bodied, moderately-high carbonation, and average ABV.
Overall - a great hefeweizen, and in contention as the "Big 3" for hefes (along with Weihenstephaner and Paulaner), at least for those that are commonly available. I still like Weihenstephaner a bit more though.

From the look of it, authentic german, but when you get to taste and smell its just average, nothing in your face or memorable. Now its not bad, don't get me wrong just not the witbeir you might expect.
