L4.5 Excellent head, nice cloud, deep golden.
S4.25 really wheaty
T4 really wheaty - with a slight sweetness
F3.75 smooth.
O4.25 from the world’s oldest brewery - they should be able to make a good beer. They can. Probably the best weissbier I’ve had from a bottle.

Hands down best hefeweizen you will ever drink. Have had draft and bottle both never disappoint. Been in business since 1040 they got it perfected!

Pours a pleasant murky-blonde with a prominent head. Tastes like banana, bubblegum, coriander, clove. Love the balance on this easily drinkable wheat beer.

Cabeza blanca y espumosa que duró por varios segundos. La cerveza tiene carbonatación alta y cuerpo medio. En su aroma destacan la malta, la banana y los cítricos. Al paladar es una cerveza suave, dulce, con un ligero amargor.

This weissbier is what I consider to be a benchmark bier. Top marks across the board which against others are evaluated in this style. I am not an everyday weiss fan but this one I could drink just about anyday.

One of my favorite German Wheat Beers. I have only enjoyed it here in the US but I am told the Weihenstephaner Hefe in Germany is a even superior brew.
