3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color with small but steady head. Average weizen banana nose. Crisp, medium-bodied palate. Not very sweet but not bitter either, lots of wheat flavors. Another well-made Ayinger.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours an invitingly hazy (nearly opaque) golden color with abundant carbonation and a huge foamy white head. Aroma is mostly wheat with hints of hops, yeast, banana, and lemon. Flavor is perfect. Honestly, this is my favorite wheat beer. Starts off with a mouthfull of wheat malt, grainy with flavors of banana, lemon, cerial, and hops. Finishes dry with a slight pepery aftertaste. This is a great example of the style. Overall, highly recomended as a perfect introduction to wheat beer.

Bottle. Banana, peach aroma. Light yellow color with light cloudiness. Moderate malt flavor with light clove and banana. High carbonation. A bit light but overall an enjoyable Weizen especially given I bought it in the states/

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 What a great Hefeweizen. The aroma is dominated by lime and malt. Too much wine in the taste and the palate, but good anyway. It took a second shot at this beer to really rate it. The yeast is wonderful in this beer. Good but nothing like the Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen in my opinion.

Ahhhhhh wheat beer and hot hot food.
I had this one with cuban black beans and rice, what a combination!!! The cumin-vinegar-cayenne flavors were a perfect opposite to the sweet wheatness of the Hefe -Weizen. The pearly yellow cloudiness is consistent thru the beer. The carbonation is perfect, the aroma of the wheat is just right. This could possibly be my pale wheat beer nirvana.

Pours light yellow with a huge white head. Excellent lacing as the head remains throughout. Aroma of wheat and a hop nose. Wheat and yeast flavor. Palate is mild. A most drinkable brew.

from the bottle. poured a cloudy staw color with a white head. aroma sour, lemony, floral, fruity, yeast, hints of pepper. flavor,grapefruit with sugar on it, other citrus flavores, some bananas, wheat, with a hint of lemon. I am not a big fan of this style of beer but this one might be my turning pointe, this was very refreshing and easy to drink.

A hazy pale gold that sits beneath a huge white long lasting head.A spicy and grainy aroma with a touch of vanilla.The flavor repeats that vanilla with moderate banana .this is my first Hefe-Weisse and will not be my last. I can’t wait to try some other versions.
