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. Poured a huge white head that lasted longer than a pornographic sex act. Huge aroma of citrus and tropical fruit...even notes of cheeries, slightly sour. Perfect champagne gold color. Taste is fruits and honey, lingers smooth and long. Somewhat weaker taste than that perfect aroma. Late tingle on the palate of spice, but very subtle. Almost perfect hefe, just lacks a bit of yeastiness for my taste.

Very nice hefeweizen. Pours a hazy golden color with an inch-thick white head. Aroma of bananas, maybe a touch of clove. Flavor is classic hefeweizen, yeasty, malty, thick on the palate ... very tasty brew.

Gorbalev (2927) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
Bottle shared with jercraigs. Cloudy dark yellow colour, with big fluffy white head. Very strong aroma of banana with a little something sweet in it (kind of like a banana split) - very appealing. Crisp, yet full bodies, this beer has flavour to no end - totally consumes your tastebuds with a perfectly balanced blend of banana, malt, and bitterness. Slightly yeasty as well. Very enjoyable.

Eructoblaster (3033) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
Bottle - 500ml. Nice hazy blond body with huge foamy head. Good yeasty aroma with spicy and floral notes. Taste is dominated by yeast. There is also some fruity (citrus, banana) notes. Decent finish. Another very nice Hefeweizen...

Hazy yellow color with small but steady head. Average weizen banana nose. Crisp, medium-bodied palate. Not very sweet but not bitter either, lots of wheat flavors. Another well-made Ayinger.

Pours an invitingly hazy (nearly opaque) golden color with abundant carbonation and a huge foamy white head. Aroma is mostly wheat with hints of hops, yeast, banana, and lemon. Flavor is perfect. Honestly, this is my favorite wheat beer. Starts off with a mouthfull of wheat malt, grainy with flavors of banana, lemon, cerial, and hops. Finishes dry with a slight pepery aftertaste. This is a great example of the style. Overall, highly recomended as a perfect introduction to wheat beer.

shrubber85 (7644) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle. Banana, peach aroma. Light yellow color with light cloudiness. Moderate malt flavor with light clove and banana. High carbonation. A bit light but overall an enjoyable Weizen especially given I bought it in the states/

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 What a great Hefeweizen. The aroma is dominated by lime and malt. Too much wine in the taste and the palate, but good anyway. It took a second shot at this beer to really rate it. The yeast is wonderful in this beer. Good but nothing like the Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen in my opinion.

Ahhhhhh wheat beer and hot hot food. I had this one with cuban black beans and rice, what a combination!!! The cumin-vinegar-cayenne flavors were a perfect opposite to the sweet wheatness of the Hefe -Weizen. The pearly yellow cloudiness is consistent thru the beer. The carbonation is perfect, the aroma of the wheat is just right. This could possibly be my pale wheat beer nirvana.

Pours light yellow with a huge white head. Excellent lacing as the head remains throughout. Aroma of wheat and a hop nose. Wheat and yeast flavor. Palate is mild. A most drinkable brew.
