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.

The Gold standard of a true Hefe-Weiss Bier ! Same score for the other versions as well (Krystal - filtered) and The Dunkel Weiss. Wonderful massive heads, pour slowly! Wonderful classic fragrance, the real deal ... The Bar is high on this why go under ?
