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.

Good body, good head, the hazy goldish color is terrific. This was a great beer and I would recommend it to everyone.

A hazy pale gold that sits beneath a huge white long lasting head.A spicy and grainy aroma with a touch of vanilla.The flavor repeats that vanilla with moderate banana .this is my first Hefe-Weisse and will not be my last. I can’t wait to try some other versions.

Had at Ayingers in Munich. A wonderful thirst quenching beer after a long walk all over the city of munich on a warm fall day. Great aroma, great flavor and it looks great too. Long lasting pure white head and moderate to strong carbonation. Smooth and delicate with a great aftertaste.

One of my favorite wheat beers. Lovely hazy yellow color is topped by a light fluffy head. I get the spicy banana hints, but the lemon seems lost on my taste buds. Very pleasant to drink.

Draught at Mono in Glasgow. Served a little cold for my taste, in correct glassware, but glasses frosted (hmph). Usual wheat yeast banana pear apple nose, good body, taste pleasant, masked somewhat by temperature and carbonation. I suspect this could be very good if less chilled.

Pours a hazy bronze with a lasting diminutive head. Very pleasant aroma of wheaty banana and spice. Taste is light and refreshing, simple and straightforward. Ayinger is tantamount to perfection.

Opaque, hazy gold color with a fluffy, white head. Crisp, sweet banana with a touch of clove, lightly tart wheat and a bit of lemon. The body is full and refreshing without being too thick for a summer day. The flavor is tasty and fairly balanced, if not overly complex or mesmerizing. A solid, drinkable hefeweizen.

Poured golden yellow with a fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma has a fruit and spice character. Initial taste has a definite spice character that is hard to describe--cinnamon, cloves, and other sweet aromatic spices come to mind. Underlying the spice is fruit such as banana. Body is fairly standard for a hefeweizen.
