Review: Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier

Weihenstephaner’s Bavarian wheat beer — the U.S. label spells it is as two words, Hefe Weissbier — is a traditional take on the hefeweizen style. Notes of coriander and orange peel attack the palate first, but the malt does the heavy lifting, its burly, nutty body smacked with spices but rounded with sweetness and a hint of coffee bean. Wheat beers are stylistically divisive, but I’m certain anyone will be able to get behind Weihenstephaner’s Old World rendition.

    There is nothing “B+” about this beautiful weissbier (“Vyiss-bee-ear”). Anyone who doesn’t give this Munich masterpiece an A+ is simply not seeing this as the true work of art, that it is. One of the best beers from Germany. Prost!
