One of the best beers in the world...

Weihenstephan Hefe-weissbier
This is certainly one of the best beers in the world. It weighs in at a super sessionable 5.4% abv. This beer is gorgeous. It pours orangish yellow with a marshmallow head that takes forever to dissipate down to about one inch. It smells amazing--dominant cloves with a sweet lemony aroma with touches of coriander and banana. This beer is the standard for all hefe-weizens. It is incredibly smooth and thirst quenching...each sip invites another. Cloves, lemon, black pepper, and doughy wheat bread flavors. The smooth mouthfeel and slight hop and spice bite at the end are a great combination. Slightly dryish lemon and wheat cracker finish. I could drink one of these every day. I am so glad that I added it to my Beer Necessities in 2011. Ein, Zwei, Drei, G'Suffa!
