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.

Cloudy gold pour nice head that sticks around as a thin lace. Aroma is citrusy and spicy. Nice palate, not to thin with enough carbonation to tingle the tongue. Nice tart finish.

caesar (4721) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2003 After having tasted all those delicious German wheats, this Ayinger fit in nicely. Delicious aroma of the fine hefe, thirst-quenching palate.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 20, 2002
Pale and foggy, downright beautiful creamy and long-lasting head. I seven-minute poured it as best I could and was very happy with the results. Oh, onto the beer. Floral bouquet, extremely crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, nice banana-clove things going on. Also hints of citrus, maybe pears. Clean finish. One of the more complex and flavorful hefes I’ve ever had.

Lots of fruit in this beer with bannana being the predominate flavor. Hint of vanilla and heavy carbonation.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2003 Light, murky yellow brew with a huge, rocky/creamy white head. Mostly lasting with virtually no lacing. The aroma is yeasty and spicy with notes of bread, citrus fruit, banana, allspice and dried apricot. The flavor is lightly malty, lightly yeasty and very well-balanced. A bit thin and flavorless overall, but there are nice notes of citrus fruit and clove. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, clean, dry finish with a hint of damp straw to close things out. Good Summer brew, but I expected more from the master race!

Very nice but a bit too carbonated. A little light for the style but very refreshing.

wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2002
UPDATED: APR 29, 2003 This is one of my favorite beers. It is very smooth with little after-taste. (some guys may not like that) It tastes like carmel, malt, and champagne with a rich, creamy, thick head that looks and tastes very unique. If you like German wheat beers that are creamy and sweet you must sample this beer. I still prefer Ayinger's Ur-weisse beer over this one

rauchbier (3560) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2002
Hazy lemon gold, excellent rocky head with lots of lace. Sweet banana and clove aromas that carry through into the mouth with a lemon citrus hint and a sweet chalky finish and yeasty burps. Almost as good as weihenstephan, and thats damn good.

Nice cloudy yellow, dry refreshing yeast flavor.
