Benediktiner Weissbier is not a beer I've ever tried or heard about. From what I gathered on the internet it comes from the Ettal Abbey which is a Benedictiner monastery in Germany- in the Bavarian region.

A- traditional cloudy, unfiltered German wheat beer

S- yummy aroma that spikes your senses- banana, cloves and a hint of peach.

T- a perfect balance of fruity-spicy; not over the top like some weiss beers. It goes down so smooth; adding any fruit would be a travesty for this beer.

M- It's a little drier then most German weiss beers- but refreshingly so.

O- a world class beer. This Benediktiner Weiss was a nice surprise. It might be the best weiss beer I've had in a long time.

I love this example of a weissbier, one of my favorites. It´s really good. Pours golden, hazy beer with a very nice white foam head of excellent retention. Aroma and flavor are right for the style, banana, clove, wheat, yeast. Great example of the weissbier.

Nice crisp wheat ale, without being overpowering. Very good balance. With the pour and head you can smell the hops. The head is nice and creamy. The first taste you notice the light flavor and malt come through. Has a hint of bananas and lemon grass. But very drinkable. Not think at all. Very good for a hot summer day.

1 pt 9 oz bottle poured into 16 oz weizen

Blood orange, yeast turbid, a tinge of amber hue at the base.

S: Clove, spice, and wheat malt

T: Banana, wheat, clove, bubblegum, and a nice refreshing finish

M: Perfect for a weissbier

Overall, buy this beer! If I ever see this on draught, I am grabbing it! This is a rare find, but remember the name.

Never saw this until recently but it seems pretty widely available in the states. I'm reviewing a 500 ml can.

It pours a very dark, very thick orange with a middling head.

Smells thick and yeasty (just how I like em). Wheatmalt dominates with large nodes of bananas, white pepper, clove, and tiny bits of melon.

Tastes great. Pepper and melon up front, moving into a clovey middle and finishing on large, lively banana nodes. The flavor is abetted by a fantastically thick and creamy body, which lends the whole shebang the feel of some sort of wonderful frosting.

Canning really serves German beers well. As I'll probably always be too poor to ever get to visit Europe, I at least hope more continental brewers start shipping pint cans over here.
