Setting the benchmark for the style, the Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissebier is a traditional Bavarian wheat ale. This gorgeous hefeweizen is brewed at the Weihenstephan Monastery Brewery—a brewery that is over 1000 years old and carries with it the distinction of being the world’s oldest existing brewery.
Cloudy and deep golden in colour, its bubbling carbonation give off a huge pillowy white head that leaves behind thick rings of lace. Classic aromas of bananas, cloves, bubblegum and a malted sweetness are reflected in the flavour. Malty and yeasty, an almost imperceptible hop bitterness and a dry finish provide a refreshing contrast that is perfect for the style. You’d want to drink this beer all day.
