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.

2004 bottle. Golden-hay appearance, very cloudy, though settling out to a straw yellow, with some moderate haziness and a huge, foamy, yellow flecked white head. Aggressive bubbles. Nose is restrained and only has lightly dry bananas, dry bubble gum esters, hay, light corn flour and lovely hops. I’m not getting much fruit that they claim is in the nose. Flavor is initially sweet and malty, with almost a stickiness to it. It lightens up a good deal, with bananas and light clove drying out the malt, as dry, countryside-hops provide a pleasant and restrained bitterness. Yeast is quite restrained, though apparent, with a dry champagne-like chewiness, bits of dough and light corn-bread. Medium-full body for the style and just wonderfully well done. Now if I could only get in to that Celebrator. . .

This beer explodes with flavor. Very full mouthfeel that caresses the palate with a prickly fizz. The taste is tart, fruity (apple-banana), earthy, spicy and semi-sweet. A good complex mix of flavors that comes on strong with its effervescence and settles nicely to finish smooth and gentle on the palate. Leaves the best of its flavors in its wake – fruity sweet aftertaste. [$2.79/500ml]

What a fine beer! A classic unfiltered heffe in many respects. Nice head, beautiful golden-honey colored, cloudy, and plenty of character in this one. There is just so much going on here and all of it is good. I love wheat beers and this is as good as they get.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2005
Nice looks, this one is cloudy and golden proposing a large white head, foamy and mostly lasting. Heavily wheaty aroma, almost oaty. Typical though mellow banana, lemon and milder cloves phenol aspects. Rather sweet fruity profile (honeymelon bubblegum). Bananas are a bit more prominent in mouth, pairing the bready yeast nicely. Mouthfeel is clean, fresh, creamy and proposing a fine bubbled carbonation. Straightforward weizen, not quite a flavorful as I expected, though ayinger’s typicall flawless execution is there. Thanks Clark.

WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2005
Decent aroma, but not as strong as other hefeweizens. Ditto for the flavor. Appearance is lovely, but the head dissipates too quickly. I could drink this all night, as it’s quite good, but not worth the premium price. I paid $2.99 for a bit more than a pint. Harpoon, Brooklyn, and Boulevard are probably a better bang for your buck.

ecbeerguy (86) - East Chicago, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2005
This beer lacks the sour smell prevalent in so many hefe-weizens. It pours with a real nice head, and the liquid is very cloudy. The taste is great.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2005
Aroma of fermented yeast. Had a good head to start with but flatened out. So the carbination wasn’t there in my glass. Dry spice flaove that made it a little heavy on the palate. May have to get another one due to the facts on the commercial description I didn’t pour this one properly.

5ooml bottle, wiezen glass...pour carefully! crazy racing carbonation, nice frothy head. Smells of bananas, lemons, with a faint allusion to sweet basil...Light and refreshing with its somewhat tart/acidic finish(although I don’t feel it is pronouncedly acidic)...it doesn’t offer me much in the way of pondering flavor, but this isn’t a beer to think about. Its certainly dry and bubbly, this is one to just gulp down. I’m not somebody who drinks wheat beers of any form very often, but I can see this coming in handy on a humid Nebraska summer day...

White head, cloudy orangeish body. A sweet and sour aroma. The taste start slightly sweet and ends kind of acidic. The acidic taste dimishes though when the beer gets warmer. I’d try it again.
