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.

ayinger hasn’t let me down yet. this is pretty much a typical hefeweizen in every way, but it’s got more flavor than franzikaner and weihest.... whatever it’s called, so i like this more.

bierkoning (12038) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle from MoritzF. Thanks! Flowers, citrus and grape juice packed in the aroma. Clove, banana, flowers and citrusfruit in the flavor. Well made hefeweizen, both with drinkability and character.

this beer was excellent. Nice ’spring fresh’ taste - crisp and spicy at the same time. This is a perfect example of it’s style

Bottle, at Delirium Cafe. Golden, unclear, large white head. Moderate malty (coriander, citrus, heavy fruity), light hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet, light acidic/bitter. Light to medium body, low carbonated (almost flat). Really big!

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Bottle: Cloudy yellow, white head. Some bananas, bready, some cinamin possibly. Flavor was similar, really bright on the palate, a little chewy, and a nice dry finish. Very good beer.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Almost clear golden colour. Wonderfully estery nose that brings a thick fruitiness, plus a little phenolic metal profile. Big flavour with loads of fruitiness in the sesters and also phenols. Low on Co2. Long flavour. This is hefeweizen!

luvcasks (178) - USA - MAY 7, 2006
Aroma: So many layers... Yeast, grain, spices and fruity banana and some citrus Appearance: Cloudy and a lovely straw yellow pours with a huge foamed milk like head which settles with lovely lacing down the glass Flavor: Sweet wheat, with a slight sour and caramel notes, spicy and finishing with oh so there... banana and lemony flavor Palate: Light bodied spritzy so that it dances on the tongue... fleeting thru sweet, spicy and slightly sour flavors leaving a lasting dry spicy and fruity finish Overall: WOW! This is fantastic.... what all hefe-weizen’s want to be. Dont decide you dont like the hefe-weizen till you try this... well then again you cannot go back I would like to try it on tap closer to the source and see how much better it could be. The bottle I tried seemed to have seen effects of some heat...

pivnizub (9973) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle: Hazy, yellow-orangey coloured, mid-sized fluffy white head, rather quickly diminishing; sweetish fruity nose: lemons, bananas, a bit grainy with a tinge of yeast; quite sweet flavour with a little sourish touch, fizzy but soft mouthfeel, medium bodied; short, fruity, a bit caramelly, a bit sourish finish. Quite well rounded, chewy Weizen.......

HumbertHumbert (77) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Pours with a rapidly dissipating head and a meak, slightly fruity aroma. Flavor dominated by clove with some mild fruitiness and a watery mouthfeel of a bottle left open too long before pouring. Light and maybe refreshing, but with little tartness to cleanse the palate.

bigcat03 (252) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - MAY 1, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Bottle from John’s Grocery - Lots of citrus taste; backtaste was a little spicey and wheaty; not heavy at all and goes down very easy; a very good hefe!

RE-RATE: 1pt .9oz bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into weizen - Pours cloudy orange gold with a 2 finger sudsy white head; Plenty of wheat, banana, malt, floral hops, and a very slight hint of lemon to the nose; Banana, lemon, a little coriander, and yeast (which adds to the taste in a very positive way) on the initial taste; Spices (coriander mostly), very mellow lemon, bread backtaste; A fairly full palate; Not watery and not heavy, just right for a weizen; Refreshing carbonation that makes it smooth to go down for the most part; Revisiting now that I have a good system in place and have acquired a bit of a taste for different kinds of beer! Not what I remember. Much more complex. Definitely a good one and my favorite hefe that I can easily get my hands on. A standard that everyone should put their lips to.
