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.

I don't have much to say about this beer outside of what top advocates of it have already said. If you have not had this beer, you're missing out. If you have had it, I'm sure you are like me and jump out of your seat a little every time you find it at a bar or restaurant.

Truly art.
