This used to be one of the best hefeweizens around. This use to be better than Paulaner and it was in serious competition with Weihenstephaner. Over the years I don't know what the heck happened to this beer. There is barely any hefeweizen flavor there. This beer has become so watered down and bland. There is a best by date on the bottle so I know I am not drinking an old beer that has been sitting on the shelf for too long. Who is the blame for ruining this classic hefeweizen. Is it ab/inbev fault? Who knows? All you people on this page who are going this beer scores in the A range must not be drinking the same beer that I am drinking. This is almost as bad as the Erdinger Weissbier. C (75-79)

Great head. Beautiful cloudy look. Citrusy smells. Great thick mouthfeel. Mildly sour with mild spice taste and hoppiness. Balanced with excessive banana or clove overtones.

It should be had a bit warmer than fridge temperature. I like letting my bottles sit out 15 to 30 minutes before poring a glass.
