Poured a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams glass. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a big creamy white head that lasts well into the beer and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is wonderful, with notes of banana, bread, and other fruity esters. Taste is great with all the wonderful aromas present. While the carbonation is visible in the glass, it doesn't overwhelm the beer and it's thinner mouthfeel. Overall a great weiss beer.

16.9 oz bottle poured ino a snifter.

Appearance-pours a hazy gold, with large off white head, a little lacing. 4

Aroma-very fruity, loads of bananas, classic bubble-gum, some orange, clove, dried pineapple. 4.25

Taste-banana taffy, bubble-gum, green apple, ground pepper, cantaloupe, wheat bread 4.5

Feel-medium bodied, middle of the road carbonation, slightly drying, you can feel the yeast in this one. 3.75

Overall-probably the best German beer I have ever had. Weihenstephaner claims to be the oldest brewery and I don't doubt it with this brew. This beer tastes like its been perfected over the last couple hundred of years. The price isn't to bad and it should be available in most markets, this is going to be my go to German brew. 4.5

A: Pours a murky straw gold with two full fingers of pure white head. The foam settles very quickly, leaving a solid ring of tiny bubbles along the edges of the glass. There is spotty lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet with notes of banana, clove, lemon, and mild melon. This beer smells great.

T: It's sweet to start with a light malt base, and big banana and clove notes. Those flavors last through to the finish, where I get bit of yeast, but nothing too crazy.

M: Light bodied beer. Silky smooth from start to finish. Super flavorful and exceedingly easy to drink.

O: This is a world class beer. Yup, it's a hefe, and it's damn delicious. Will drink again soon.
