COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

Filling aroma of wheat, banana, yeast, vanilla. Pours a very pale, cloudy yellow with a bit of yeast on the bottom and a thick, foamy head. Taste is peppery, with banana, wheat, a touch of sweetness and no bitterness. Delicious!

A nice thick head with a nice, spice/clove smell with a hint of bananna. It was a very crisp beer, with wonderful flavor.

Bottle. Unclear yellowish with large dense head. Straight forward hefewizen; sweet, bananas, cloves, full - a meal in itself. Very easy drinking.

Crystal clear through the golden beer. Thick and fluffy head created that sticks around for some time. Aroma has a hint of spice with a huge smell of banana, bubblegum and yeast. The flavor is more light than the aroma had made me believe but still a nice serving of banana and yeast to be found. Has a little bit of spice and zest in the aftertaste which makes this brau weisse different than the other Ayinger i had. Again, another lassic example of the style from Ayinger.

Pouring gently from bottle elicits a profuse, frothy white head that is mostly lasting. Appropriately cloudy yellow and highly effervescent. Aroma was of slightly green bananas. Nice and light on the tounge, a little tart like sourdough bread. Has a clean tart finish, not especially hoppy. Would recommend!

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2005
This pors a cloudy and effervencent golden ellow with a sizeable and firm, rocky head. Careful while pouring! The aroma is yeasty with clove and some lemon, mixing with subtle malt and hops. The flavor lives up to the promise with well integrated lemony, fruity flavors, with hints of banana nd clove followed by a pleasantly dry finish. Not bone dry, but well balanced with a short, fruity finish. An excellent example of the style.

DerWeg (1551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2005
Richer than some of its brethren, with expressive clove and citrus bouquet luring into moderate banana/fruit aroma and decent sweetness and body.

European Bottle Pour - Large white head atop a lovely bright amber body.. cloudy like a good weizen is *grin*. Head lasts for a good while..several swigs. Aroma - light banana, flowery with a few spices thrown in. Taste - More distinct banana and spices dominate the initial sweetness. Dries on the finish with a slight bitterness. Light body... closer to a Kristalweizen in that respect... not quite so heavy. Very tasty. Nicely done!
