Naturally cloudy wheat beer with a wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage.

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.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier won a Gold Medal at the World Beer Awards 2016 in the category Germany - Bavarian Hefeweiss.

If you like franziskaner? You will love this.. a little bit sweeter and more banana after taste than franziskaner but really similar.

A phenomenal wheat beer. I have sampled around 6 other variety of German Wheat beer and this is the best so far. Highly refreshing and leaves a mature and flavourful after taste. This will not disappoint especially if served correctly in a Weiss beer tall glass.
Sorry BH, I betrayed you
