I like a LOT of different styles of beer; in fact, I don't really think I've found one that I actually dislike, although some of these over-hopped IPAs are a little much for me. But for many reasons, I think that the hefeweizen is probably my favourite, including many of its variants.

Here is an excellent series on brewing hefeweizens; it's written quite well, and includes plenty of fodder for both the "mad-scientist" brewers as well as the "monk"' brewers.

Much of the science in there is over my head - but, the concepts are easy enough to discern, and the author translates the science into something fairly easy to understand throughout the series.

I'm very happy with my current hefeweizen recipe, but there's a lot of food for thought here, and in future brews, I will probably try to incorporate some of this knowledge into the process.

Here are two more articles, to add to the knowledge base:

http://byo.com/body/item/2265-german-hefeweizen-style-profile

http://braumagazin.de/article/brewing-bavarian-weissbier-all-you-ever-wanted-to-know/

I found the second article to be especially helpful; once again, the science goes a little over my head, but the explanations of the science are very easy to understand, even after being translated from the original German.
