Notes / Commercial Description:
Our golden-yellow wheat beer, with its fine-poured white foam, smells of cloves and impresses consumers with its refreshing banana flavour. It is full bodied and with a smooth yeast taste. To be enjoyed at any time,goes excellently with fish and seafood, with spicy cheese and especially with the traditional Bavarian veal sausage. Brewed according to our centuries-old brewing tradition on the Weihenstephan hill.

Looks attractive with big head. Retention is very good.
Smells phenolic clove, estery banana and wheat malt.
Tastes very sweet malt, banana and slight citrus.
Foamy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Sweet finish.
Good refresher and easy to drink.
