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.

Bottle. I’m not normally a wheat beer lover, but this is really good. Cloudy yellow body with a big white head of small bubbles. Aroma is light, and lemony with a bit of other fruit (peach?). Flavor is light, but complex with lemon, banana, and spice. Best hefeweizen I’ve had.

Lemon, banana, bubble gum, clovers, and dough. Very light hops. Refreshing. One of the best wheat beers I’ve had.

draft - Pours orangish-yellow with a moderate head. This beer smells great with lots of citrus and banana aromas. The flavor is of yeast and banana most prominently and a mild spicy note. It’s got a smooth feel with a medium body. The finish is clean and refreshing. This might be my favorite hefeweizen thus far.

I was over at a local liquor store and they were selling pints of this Ayinger for $1 a piece. I must say, Im very impressed with this weisse. Very aromatic, smells of banana and spice. Flavorful; tastes of banana, clove, bubble gum, yeast. Finishes fairly clean and leaves me wanting another gulp! I’m going to have to get more of this stuff. Bravo, Ayinger!

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2006
(bottle) Cloudy orange colour with a huge, slowly lacing foamy white head. Clean and balanced yeasty banana-fruitiness, wheat character and clovy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, well-bodied with a sparkling carbonation. Wheaty and fruity (banana, citrus) taste; fruity and moderately clove-spicy finish. A fine and not too heavy, well-rounded Hefeweizen with session qualities.

Tap at the Acadia Cafe. This tastes so much like Sprite to me it’s almost silly. Quite an enjoyable wheat, though - flavors of lemon, more light fruits, etc. Maybe i’ll compare that taste more to "champagne." That’s a bit more palatable i suppose.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Appealing pour of a large, white head on hazy yellow body. Sweet aroma of banana, pear, caramel, clove and grain. Very sweet flavor on top of banana, pear, bready malts and grassy hops. Lively carbonation from a thin to medium body results in a comfortable mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 Will definatley try again because I was unable to drink according to specifications, but this wasn’t my favorite wheat. A bit overly fruity and floral for me, tasted like green grapes and apples. A very nice wheat flavor, great mouthfeel, but just couldn’t really apprecciate the fruitiness. A nice beer, but not my favorite wheat.
