Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier by Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan

Beer #32 is a Hefeweizen, a German wheat beer.  Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier by Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan, ABV of 5.4%, hails from Germany and according to the label is brewed from the oldest brewery in the world.  Also of note on the label it mentions “Brewed Under The Purity Law of 1516”.  I would say the Germans must know a thing or two about brewing beer if there were laws about it back in 1516.

This beer had a lovely hazy honey color to it.  The head was huge and foamy, rivaling the head of Duvel.  It was a very fragrant brew with aromas of bananas & cloves & spicy yeast.  This made my mouth water just from smelling it.  Taste did not disappoint, the nose was exactly how it tasted to me.  Absolutely delicious!  Mouthfeel was excellent, silky smooth and slightly thick with great tight tingly carbonation.  This was highly drinkable.  It could easily be a session beer for myself.

This was easily one of the best beers I have ever had.  I have heard of people using the term balanced when it comes to beer, and to me, this is perfectly balanced.  Nothing is overpowering or understated.  One should go out of their way to find this if at all possible, I know I will.
