Beer 358/365 – Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier

Style: Hefeweizen

ABV: 5.4%

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.

Grade: A

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.

Picture of the day: This one is a must click. Top 55 posters from the rally to restore sanity and/or fear.

  1. One of my absolute favorite Hefs. I hate banana too, but love this beer. In truth, I love their dunkel weiss even more. Have yet to have a poor offering from them. Great stuff all around.

  2. Great beer. Pronounced something like “vine-shtef-ahn-er”.
