The majority of the top-rated hefeweizens are readily available AND affordable. That's not true for most other beer styles. Personally I've had 8 of the top 12 hefeweizens (as defined by the "Top Rated Beers" for the style) without putting forth any real effort at all. Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier (#1 on the list) is one of my favorite beers ever and a six-pack is only $10-12! Are there any other styles that approach hefeweizens in terms of the best examples of a style being both widely available and economical?
