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.

Complex fruity-spicy aroma. No thick creamy head as advertised, however. Decent taste, but not my favorite hefe.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2003
A cloudy, pale yellow color with a thick creamy head. Some lacing. After reading the description, honey describes the color of the body perfectly.
Very spicy and yeasty aroma with a nice wheat-lemon undertone.
Delicate flavors. Wheat, lemon, pepper, and yeast. A slight fruit taste at the end. Very balanced yet subdued beer.
Carbonated like champagne and smooth. This is a beer that helps you in consuming it!

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 Nice carbonated feed to the head in this banana colored wheat beer. Beautiful aroma of fresh banana breeze. but the flavor was blase--a light mixture of banana and wheat--slightly bland, and a dissapointment. Re-rated: Golden wheat decent head. Nice whiff of yeast, banana, clove, and wheat. A good standard for the style. Body could use more effervescence. Overall 13-14.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2003
A fairly standard hazy yellow and large white head start off this brew. A nice nose, with strong yeast/wheat elements and some spice, as well. Flavor is pretty mild, and it's a pretty nice, easy drinking wheat. It does lack real depth of character, but it's still a good brew for a hot summer's day.

Had from bottle on July 7th, 2003 - Day 7 of Blake's Beer Month™
The beer poured with a hazy yellow/gold color with a nice thick head - the beer is extremely carbonated, but still an easy drink. The aroma is of malts and spices and the German Wheat beer doesn't disappoint in the flavor department. The malts are evident with a slight bit o' hops and a good citrusy (lemon) flavor. An enjoyable beer - easy to drink - nice for a hot day like today.

CapFlu (4522) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2003
(o,5 ltr Bottle) Cloudy, straw body with a thin white head. There are some great Ayingers out there but this isn't one of them - this is average at best. Yes, bananas et al but not of the true complexity I am accustom from this brewery...

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 Very hazy yellow-straw pour with a tall, creamy, white head. Big nose of bananas and cloves. Light pepper in the background. Rich bready aromatics along with honey and vanilla. Sweet bread and bananas on the tongue; spicy and peppery towards the finish ending with a drying herbal aftertaste and a touch of vanilla. Creamy but dry body with champagne carbonation. Not quite as spectacular as I remember, but still very good and refreshing. Overall score went from 17 to 15. 50cl bottle, bbe 10.08.

Hazy yellow in color with a fizzy, frothy white head. Extremely carbonated. Smells of moderate malt (sweet bread) light hops (flowers, lemons) and light yeast (dough). Also a hint of bananas. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, and lightly bitter throughout with an average finish. Med-light watery feel. Very refreshing brew and one of the tastier wheats I’ve had. Less overpowering bananas than Hoegaarden.

Everytime i see an Ayinger i can only think of,what a shame it is to tear that bottle cap off.It is by far the most artfull bottle cap i have encountered yet from any beer.Anyway here we go Cloudy straw color,small white head that faded quite quickly leaving a slight lacing on the sides.Malty sweet aroma with a mild yeastiness and a strong lemon grass smell.Mild to light medium spice as well.Sweet taste with a mild malt presence,mildly spice and very fruity with the fruit being in the lemon grass arena,with maybe some hints of banana,fairly strong carbonation,the after taste is mildly hoppy but definatley has a decent lemon tone to it with a little spice coming through at the tail end.A very nice brew thanks to Wawood for this one as well.
