4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light pale cloud of whiteish yellow with a two finger high head off white tight pillowy cream, the very top much like a moonscape that settles as slowly as sand in an hour glass to a thin steady foam always present; lace is drippy. Smell has a strong sense of banana at first pour with the clove, but subsides as it sits it becomes more of a regular hefe aroma but still favorable of dullish lemon, yeasty must, and the banana and clove not so potent. Taste is mild and full of a soild hefe, good heft with a frothy bold wheat start that leads into the lemon citrus brigade, quite smooth, lightly sour, calming banana and musty yeast takes some grip as it pushes through into the finish with nice lingering clove. Feel starts easy and smooth and fills up quickly to a pretty solid fullness with a substantially lasting finish. This is one very nice hefe, quite enjoyable, refreshing and flavorful. Another one to keep around in the fridge during the summer; heck, any time will due.

A really awesome german wheat. Grainy golden pour with a huge head. The taste is very acidic and dry, slightly brut. Nice hop aroma retains itself throughout and even into the aftertaste. the mouthfeel is full and very very dry. Extremely tasty, and something I will look forward to trying again.

Great German wheat. Great mouthfeel, complex, dry. Very good, but I'll take the Belgan wheats over this one.

Citrusy and yeasty. A Solid wheat beer. Not Ayinger's best, but good nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2004 [on tap] Deep golden and hazy, with a tall and persistent head. Aroma is strongly yeasty, moderately citric and hoppy. There's a good malt texture here, but the beer doesn't get too sweet for this. Dry and slightly sour. Low to medium body. Moderately bitter finish. [re-rate, bottled:] The bottled version is equally great; crisp and full of taste. Better than Weihenstephaner. I'm slightly raising my rating.

This beer was quite spritzy with a light quenching acidity to it. There was some fruitiness and it was appropriately hazy.

Great lemon-yellow color with a lots of bubbles and head. The aroma is sweet and light with bold wheat scents and vanilla. The flavor is lighter, and maybe even a little watery. The finish is very smooth. Excellent beer!

Hazy golden blond with a strong pillowy white head. Lovely yeasty and malty nose. Great stuff! Some spice and citrus hiding in the background as well. Wonderful taste! Refreshing blend of spices, citrus fruit, and yeast. Finishes very smooth. Highly recommneded!

Yeasty, malty aroma on a pale amber beer. Citrusy, yeasty flavor, and all around a pretty good wheat beer.

Quite good it is not a stand out weiss beer but it is not a bad one either. The rating is high as I love this style of beer so even its middling offers are better to me then most. Smooth and quite nice.
