Weizen tasting - results

The overall winner of the day was Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, with an overall rating of 4.05, which equates to A- (excellent) on the Beeradvocate rating scale.  Runner up was Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse, with 4.00 (B+ very good).

Scott's top 5 were (scores out of 5):
Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier 3.90  (equal 1st)
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse         3.90  (equal 1st)
Schneider Aventinus                  3.85
Schofferhofer Hefeweizen          3.50
Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier           3.50

Michael's top 5 were:
Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier 4.20
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse         4.10
Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier           3.80
Erdinger Weissbier                    3.50
Schofferhofer Hefeweizen          3.45

As expected, the Germans took all the top spots. The two Australian offerings did not perform very well along style lines. One of them performs better on tap, the other drinks well but seems to be more of an Aussie pub ale than a creamy, clove & banana hefeweiss.
