Beer Review: Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier

In Hefeweizen, Reviews on May 1, 2011 at 12:06 pm

The archetype of the style from the oldest brewery in the world Weihenstephaner (vine-hen-stefanner) is a must try for every beer drinker.  Here’s my review:

Pours clear with a huge, pillowy white head that sticks to the glass for dear life.

Gives off notes of esters and spices like clove, banana, bread, orange, lemon, fresh cut grass as well.

Light and refreshing on the palate with clove and bready flavors with a hint of wheat twang.  The typical banana is not as strong as I expected from the smell.

Very clean flavors, and as most German brews go, it is a perfectly executed beer fit to style, and since it comes from the oldest brewery that basically defined the style, it very well should be.

Style: Hefeweizen

ABV: 5.4%

Cheers!
