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.

SOLID wheat beer, very good, refreshing wheat. Very impressed, but still prefer Paulaner.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Cloudy yellow wheat beer with lacy white head. Thin in the mouth, light, and spicy. Little fruit or banana in this wheat beer; rather, it has the characteristic spiciness, with lots of pepper and clove.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 I had my first Ayinger this evening; it was exceptionally good. It contained a good deal of sediment in the bottle, which made for a cloudy straw color when poured. Fairly strong wheat aroma and taste.---Rerate 6/20/03--- I have picked up upon a creamy, oily palate, as well as a banana, and vanilla aroma. Quite nice overall, this is one of the better wheat beers that I have indulged in thus far.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Gold and cloudy. Thick white head that stays until the end. Scent of grapefruit. Very strong taste of wheat with some citrus. Thick and full bodied.

Bottle. A hazy golden orange color with a foamy white head and lots of rising bubbles. A spicy vanilla and citrus aroma with a wheat vanilla flavor.

Light nose - not much there, cloudy khaki color, big bubble head. Nice hefe flavors with untertones of oranges and other citrusy things. Little vanilla too. No bitter at all. Creamy mouth feel, meaty and smooth. Maybe too sweet, but I don't care - I liked this.

YogiBeera (2448) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Oranges, lemon, vanilla and yeast nose. Cloudy orange color´, little head, liveley carbonation. Ripe banana taste, interesting, refreshing, but more like a juice. A bit to sweet for me.

Ron (2456) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2003
I had my bottle poured over a lemon wedge in a Weissbier glass and it was heaven. The lemon smell with the smooth texture or the beer my it a very pleasurable experience. Only now after reading the description I wished I saved some to drink without the lemon to enjoy all the beermakers efforts with this brew. Next time.

Frank (2772) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2003
This is certainly a high-quality german-style wheat. Refreshing, for sure. Nice golden color. Well balanced malt and hops. A bit of a champagne like quality complimented by fine streams of carbonation. Dry finish is too short and somehow feels a bit hollow. There's not much bad to say about this beer. Not the most exciting thing in the world but well executed.

Great semi-opaque colour, slightly orange, slightly yellow. Some lemony smell, also a noticable 'pear' smell. Definate wheaty characteristics on the smell and appearance. A good taste, but somewhat strong initially. The flavour subsides and you are left with a smooth wheaty taste. Not my favourite wheat, but not bad at all.
