It doesn't get more traditional than this. The Weihenstephaner Brewery was founded in 725 in a monastery in Bavaria, making it one of the oldest breweries in the world. Who else would you trust to make a classic unfiltered wheat beer? While many American Hefeweizens are known for their light, refreshing qualities, German versions like the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier stand out for its complexities. The honey-hued beer smells like bananas and clove, and delivers those flavors with a smooth creaminess that ends with a spice spike. This is the kind of supremely balanced beer that pairs well with barbecues, mixing gracefully with flavorful foods or holding its own against a veggie burger.
