One of the great Weissbiers of the world. The import is filtered more than what you would drink in Freising, Germany but it is very smooth and very pleasing. It has more body than Spaten and is more wheaty than Rhineland lagers. This is the beer of Bavaria.

A- Hazy golden brew with a nice 2 finger head that dissipates into some nice web by lacing.

S- Lots of clove, banana, citrus especially lemon, wheat and yeast

T- Still lots of citrus, a slight sweetness, and a very slight after taste of hops

M- some nice biting carbonation that is very refreshing and compliments the beer extremely well.

O- Not a huge Hefeweizen drinker but I will definitely be buying this again. Great for warm weather or if you are on the mood for a nice lighter bodies beer. Absolutely fantastic.
