The classic and best hefeweizen around. 20 oz pour into appropriate hefe glass at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

One of the best looking beers on the planet, really. Intensely cloudy, pale, gold-colored elixir. Carbonation moves up the glass beautifully.

Smells great. Wheat, esters, banana.

Tastes amazing. The benchmark for hefes. Banana, bubblegum esters, slight wheat bitterness, floral hops, slight malt flavor.

The carbonation is basically perfect. Very smooth, goes down so easy.

The perfect wheat beer. I'll be damned if I find a better one.
