So it's a tie between Paulaner and Ayinger for me. And as the Major implied the quality varies in the bottle across the board.

Right now I'm drinking Pedernales "Classic Hefe-weizen" from Fredricksburg and Boulevard "Unfiltered Wheat"

Schniklefritz (Urban Chestnut Brewing), Weinhenstephaner, Paulaner, and Franziskaner.

Urban Cheatnut also makes a great Bavarian Lager called "Zwikel."  Nice to have a craft brewer make solid German beer styles as year-around offerings.  I can't get UCBC beer in KC so I always make sure to stop by the beer store any time I'm in STL.

I know it's not exactly to style, but my favorite is Schneider Brooklyn Hopfenweisse and my second favorite is the Brooklyn Schneider Hopfenweisse.
