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.

Look: Light orange, cloudy, big fluffy white head.

Smell: Banana, some cloves, yeast, hints of citrus

Taste: First thing I noticed was a kind of bubblegum taste, mixed in with the fruity citrus-banana combo, some hints of cloves and nutmeg that become more pronounced after swallowing.

Feel: Full-bodied, normal carbonation

Classic, best enjoyed in the beer garden at the brewery. Nothing special in the look, just a nice clear amber. Smell is OK but nothing striking. Taste is brilliant -- perfectly balanced, everything you want in a beer. Good round mouthfeel, unusually so for a hefeweizen. Classic, reliable.
