Other Information

The title of the oldest brewery in the world is in the hands of Weihenstephaner, founded in 1040 on the Weihenstephan hill north of Munich in Freising. The brewery has operated for almost 1000 years. Along with some of the world’s most knowledgeable brew masters, it has produced an excellent range of beers, all in accordance with the German Reinheisgebot which has helped it to secure numerous awards internationally for its products as well as being appreciated by connoisseurs in over 30 countries worldwide every day.
Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier weighs in at 5.4% and is a German wheat beer at the top of its class. The world’s oldest brewery certainly knows a thing or two about brewing a high quality beverage whatever the style. It appears a yellow/gold in colour with a fine poured white head. The haze, as is signature of a wheat beer, is present, and releases an aroma of cloves, banana and nutmeg coming from the malts used. The malt is once again evident in the taste, balanced by the fruit and spices that the hops bring to the table and it combines beautifully to produce a spectacular wheat beer that does exactly what it should. Refreshing and smooth, this beer can be paired with seafood or fish as well as cheese or Bavarian dishes. This is brewed to a tradition centuries old, but when the result is this good, why change?

  1. Stujago

    This is a very nice hefeweizen. It has a lovely golden orange colour snd the head was expanding foam. The flavours are very balanced without being strong. An easy drink with a slightly tart undertone.

  2. Aidan Turton

    This is my all time favourite wheat beer. It’s the oldest brewery in the world and it is still going strong today! Excellent taste, not too heavy and leaves you wanting the next bottle.

  3. Eric Akrill

    This is a beer I have drunk on many occasions and it never fails to impress. As you pour it, there develops a lovely thickish head which contains some spicy and fruity aromas. Then to sup it, and how refreshing it is, leaving a subtly deceptive but very enjoyable after taste. A definite repeat buy for me.

  4. Alastair_H

    Enjoyed this one, nice wheat beer. Enjoyed the taste and will have this one again.

  5. Robert Harkin

    This is a unique beer, a well balanced refreshing Weiss beer, 1 is never enough, just what you’d expect from the oldest brewery in the world.

  6. Pete Saunders

    Probably the best hefeweizen I’ve had to date. Gloriously decadent creamy head, distinctive banana and cloves and just a touch of lasting bitterness.

  7. Paul C

    I have just received my first order from Beers of Europe and I have not been disappointed.This was the first beer I tried.This weissbeer is golden brown and has a beautiful creamy head with sharp aroma of banana and especially cloves.smooth tasting all the way down I can see this becoming one of my favourite beers.

  8. James Baxter

    My favorite Weissbier it just tastes better than most other wheat bier’s and I lived in Germany for 15 years and have probably drank most wheat bier’s made in Bavaria there are few as good as this

  9. James K

    An extremely good Weissbier and probably my favourite. Goes down very well and would highly recommend.

  10. Luke Canning

    Nice enough wheat beer, but not something that I would have again after trying it for the first time.

  11. Kristin

    Not had a bad beer from Weihenstephaner and this one is a very drinkable weissbier: well balanced, refreshing, clean taste. Everything you want in a weissbier

  12. Andy P

    Absolutely love this one. Great example of a German wheat beer. Really refreshing and moreish!

  13. Simon Tomlinson

    Brilliant white frothy head stayed on a hazy, highly carbonated, vivid golden body. Wheat, lemon, banana & citrus aroma. Medium body, tangy, sharp & slightly cloying on the back. Yeast, wheat, banana & sweet orange tastes.

  14. Alastair Paterson

    An excellent weissbier.
    A bit fuller in body and flavour than, say, Erdinger or Paulaner, which are my staple weissen.

  15. Paul Boniface

    An absolutely superb wheat beer. A great flavour of fruit and spices are excellently balanced. Easy to drink and very refreshing. If you haven’t tried it, do so, you won’t be disappointed. I shall be ordering this again and again.

  16. Chris Meechan

    One of the very best hefeweizens on the market. Sweet banana and clove, lightly spiced with an almost bubblegum like finish.

  17. Kris

    Hands down one of the nicest weissbiers I have sampled – the right kind of depth where its complex yet still balanced.

  18. Matthew W

    Pours a hazy dark orange with small fairly tight white head, good retention.
    Aroma of creamy wheat, banana, clove, light spice. Very solid and inviting on the nose.
    Taste matches the aroma, very smooth with all the elements you want including that spice coming through at the end.
    Medium bodied and soft carbonation.
    Very good tasty beer.

  19. Gavin Harrison

    Another excellent beer from this very consistent brewery. A good rich amber colour and typically cloudy with a good head. Complex fruity, spicy and bready flavours make this one of the best wheat beers.

  20. Blinco

    I had never tried a wheatear before but tried a selection over the last couple of years and this is my favourite. I wasn’t keen on it at first but now it’s great .

  21. Liam Lewis

    A very drinkable wheat beer. Cloudy orange in colour and nice flavours of banana and clove. Pours with a good head with good retention. Would buy this again.
