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.

Sweet and spicy aroma, with hints of lemon. Pours a golden tan, with a large white head. Complex flavor - wheat, yeast, lemon, bananas, spices...the list goes on. Very refreshing, one of the best Hefeweizens I have had. Ayinger has yet to disappoint me!

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 bottled: this is a classic, refreshing, delicious....mmmm, mmm,mm!! weisse beer. this is what the germans do best and nobody can top them. i love this wheat nice and light with lots of flavor. hazy tan yellow with a nice white rocky head in a glass. lots of wheat and bread smell in the nose with a little tingle in the nares with a deep inhalation. banana, spices and lemon on the palate. way smooth and easy to drink. this is probably a little lighter then some typical weisse beers but the best for hot summer days to quench that complex thirst we all have....best of the lights.

Dorwart (2425) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2004
Huge snow white head of fine bubbles. Frothery and lasts a long time. Very plesant aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast and hay. Color is a slightly cloudy, pale gold. Flavor is light and crisp and very refreshing. More lemon flavor with a hint of spices. Not dominated but yeast which is very nice. Finish is clean and refreshing. A great summertime beer that is very eary drinking.

Hangover (1088) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Cloudy, light yellow pour, with a huge, lasting head. Very light aroma. Yeast, wheat, banana are evident. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. A bit heavy on the banana, but the vanilla adds a bit of complexity to this brew. Excellent, smooth finish. Extremely easy to drink. An excellent hefe.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 2013-04-01. Hazy dark yellow body with a nice white head. 3+ Sweetish yeasty wheat aroma, modest esters, fruit, banana. 7+ Flavour is similar sweet fruity wheat character, mild yeast and banana eaters. 7+ Average plus bodied palate suits it. 3+ A touch mild even for a weisse, but quite enjoyable. 7/3/7/3/15+ Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

Re-rate Unintentional re-rate, but I am glad I did. Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Slightly vigorous pour yields a massive white head on a hazy pastel golden yellow body. Yeasty, slightly citrusy bready aroma and a fair does of banana. I thought I god some bubble gum at first sniff but I couldn’t find it again. Sweet, with the slightest hint of wheaty tartness, very slight citrus in the flavour. Excellent mouth feel is full bodied with the occasional lighter moments. Finish is banana with an alcoholic follow up. Very nice. 8/4/7/4/17

Pre-Ratebeer Rating Fairly clear body. Bit of light clove in the aroma. Has notes of the usual wheat beer flavours of banana and yeast but not much of either. Light, not exceptional wheat beer. 6/3/5/2/13

Cloudy yellow. White head. Yeasty banana aroma. Light, grainy feel--could be livelier. Yeasty, grainy flavour of banana, peach, wheat & cream.

rajendra82 (975) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Poured out of a standard Hefeweizen sized 500 ml bottle. Aroma is very faintly banana. Looks decent with a cloudy pale golden body, but the head is a bit too small for the style. The head also dies out very quickly and little to no lace is observed later. Lively carbonation and light mouthfeel. Taste is light on the bananas and clove, and much more leaning towards lemon, orange peel, and pineapple. Very refreshing and crisp, but lacks the creaminess of some other hefeweizen beers I have tried.
