What makes this beer different: The highest rated hefe on BeerAdvocate. Deservingly so.
Will I be drinking this again: Yup, this just bumped franzy as my favorite hefe.
11/1/2010: Most difficult beer name to pronounce ever. “Why-hine-steph-ahner”.. Does that sound about right? I was trying to tell my buddy about this beer, and had no clue how to say it. Also, why aren’t there pint sized weizen glasses out there? Maybe there are but I have not seen any. There is always so much empty space in the top with these .5L glasses..
The nose is a ton of banana. I know Weihenstephan has their own yeast strain, and it shows as all of their beers seem to have this amazing banana thing going on. The flavor is just about perfect as far as a hefe goes; banana, yeasty, some clove and a hint of lemon. Really don’t know how to describe the mouthfeel other than great. Rich, creamy, and very well carbonated. Would love to get a fresh case of this when summer rolls around.
