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.

bigcat03 (238) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - MAY 1, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle from John’s Grocery - Lots of citrus taste; backtaste was a little spicey and wheaty; not heavy at all and goes down very easy; a very good hefe!

RE-RATE: 1pt .9oz bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into weizen - Pours cloudy orange gold with a 2 finger sudsy white head; Plenty of wheat, banana, malt, floral hops, and a very slight hint of lemon to the nose; Banana, lemon, a little coriander, and yeast (which adds to the taste in a very positive way) on the initial taste; Spices (coriander mostly), very mellow lemon, bread backtaste; A fairly full palate; Not watery and not heavy, just right for a weizen; Refreshing carbonation that makes it smooth to go down for the most part; Revisiting now that I have a good system in place and have acquired a bit of a taste for different kinds of beer! Not what I remember. Much more complex. Definitely a good one and my favorite hefe that I can easily get my hands on. A standard that everyone should put their lips to.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2006
Hazy honey coloured beer with a tremendous head that took several pauses during the pour so as not to spill. Once it settled, it formed chunky peaks and shapes before slowly fading. BIG aromas of banana, vanilla, wheat. Very smooth mouthfeel, with classic flavours of banana, citrus, and sweet spices with a wheaty-yeasty backbone. Silky finish. One of the best wheats I’ve had.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2006
Bottle 500ml sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy golden with a large monsterous white head. Aroma of Bananas, citrus, wheat, and sweetness. Flavor is smooth, citrus, banana, wheat, mild carbonation, and spices. Body is a little thin. But a very good Hefeweizen.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head with lots of bubbles coming to the top. Aromas of banana, lemons and clove. Very carbonated. Lots of yeast and very mild flavors as compared to the aroma. More of the same bananas, cloves and wheat. Carbonated and thin mouthfeel. Average.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2006
Bottle. Pours a yellow gold with a slight haze. Decent head that leaves a fine lacing behind. Citrus and banana on the nose, but those flavors are mild upon tasting. Maybe a little bit thin and not as creamy as I had hoped. Not a very robust hefeweizen, but the trademark flavors are present. A good hefeweizen, but I was expecting better.

JorisPPattyn (8915) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Pale gold with a greenish shine; good whitish head. Cloves, some banana and faint citrus - AND wheat, very obvious. Sweetish-fruity taste, and a peppery, spicey finish. Well-bodied, but a bit fizzy. A bit basic Weizen, I’d expect better from them.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Cloudy yellow to gold depending on the width of the wheat-beer glass. Big foamy lasting head. Lots of carbonation. Wheat and zesty lemon aroma. Banana and light honey flavour. Lemon finish. Zesty body with a bit of chewiness. Refreshing.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2006
Big banana and bubblegum aroma, nice bready wheat as well. Cloudy pale yellow, huge white head, took a while to pour. Sweet flavor, banana, bubblegum, vanilla, bread. Medium body, high carbonation. This is a great example of the style that leans towards the banana/bubblegum end of the style (as opposed to those that favor clove/spiciness). I could drink a lot of this.

thegreenrooster (3722) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2006
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is is kind of weak but i do get some wheat and yeast. Flavor is pure lemon zest with a touch of corriander. This is just and average hefe and the Ayinger dunkel has more of a flavor proflie.
