Hefe Weissbier from Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan in Germany
Solid beer from what is claimed to be the world’s oldest brewery.
A bit on the bitter spiced aroma side, it has a strong aroma. Taste-wise, it goes down very refreshingly, with a slight sour citrus tinge on the tip of the tongue.
Hazy yellow with an omnipresent head it is a fine summer patio brew that exudes freshness with plenty of banana and clove present.
Not my personal favourite but I’d probably rank it in the top five hefe weissbiers – highly recommended.
