From one of the oldest breweries in the world, this German wheat beer has the perfect mix of tart wheat character, fruity banana ester and just a slight hint of spiciness. As with any good wheat beer it pours with a voluminous pillowy head. Since this is a Hefe Weiss (beer served with the yeast) the finish is rounder and the body a little heavier than the Krstall (filtered) version. I guess when you started brewing around 1040AD you may have had just enough time it get your beer just right.
