Naturally cloudy wheat beer with a wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage.
Setting the benchmark for the style, the Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissebier is a traditional Bavarian wheat ale. This gorgeous hefeweizen is brewed at the Weihenstephan Monastery Brewery—a brewery that is over 1000 years old and carries with it the distinction of being the world’s oldest existing brewery.
Cloudy and deep golden in colour, its bubbling carbonation give off a huge pillowy white head that leaves behind thick rings of lace. Classic aromas of bananas, cloves, bubblegum and a malted sweetness are reflected in the flavour. Malty and yeasty, an almost imperceptible hop bitterness and a dry finish provide a refreshing contrast that is perfect for the style. You’d want to drink this beer all day.
Almost a thousand years ago the Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan was the monastery brewery of the Benedictine monks. Then, the Royal Bavarian State Brewery, it is now operating as a state directed enterprise under the control of the Bavarian Government. As the oldest still existing brewery in the world it stands upon the Weihenstephan hill, surrounded by the comparatively very young Weihenstephan science center of the Technical University of Munich. And so, a unique tradition and brewing culture developed over the centuries. Today, Korbinian’s heirs use the most modern technology, but they never forget their own history and their own high standards. This allows them to brew a variety of beers of the highest possible quality.
