Unlike Steve, I'm not a big Weisse drinker. However, after trying this, I could definitely become one. Granted, it looks like a urine sample from someone with a bladder infection, but if you can get past that, it tastes pretty damn good.

By German standards, this is merely OK, but by American standards for hefeweizen, this is simply awesome. Good out of the bottle or a weizen glass, this comes as close to the Germans as you can get without actually having a fat monk on the bottle. It has the yeast aroma, the nice malty taste, that banana background, it's just all around good. I even liked how the added the -er on the end of the name, to mimic the German brands (Paulaner, Franziskaner, etc).
