I’ve had Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier many times and I just had it again. I think it is a great Hefeweizen. I love it for its balanced and moderate but distinct flavors and for being such a classic Hefewezien and yet such a great beer.

Look: golden hazy hue with very thick (three-inch) white foamy head.

Aroma: The aroma is wheat, yeast, banana and maybe a tad citrus.

Taste: the usual Hefeweizen flavors wheat, yeast, banana, a little bit cloves and maybe a hint of orange but the flavors are just really well composed and well balanced.

Feel: The body is light to medium and it's crisp and thirst quenching.
