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.

Nice looks, this one is cloudy and golden proposing a large white head, foamy and mostly lasting. Heavily wheaty aroma, almost oaty. Typical though mellow banana, lemon and milder cloves phenol aspects. Rather sweet fruity profile (honeymelon bubblegum). Bananas are a bit more prominent in mouth, pairing the bready yeast nicely. Mouthfeel is clean, fresh, creamy and proposing a fine bubbled carbonation. Straightforward weizen, not quite a flavorful as I expected, though ayinger’s typicall flawless execution is there. Thanks Clark.

Decent aroma, but not as strong as other hefeweizens. Ditto for the flavor. Appearance is lovely, but the head dissipates too quickly. I could drink this all night, as it’s quite good, but not worth the premium price. I paid $2.99 for a bit more than a pint. Harpoon, Brooklyn, and Boulevard are probably a better bang for your buck.

This beer lacks the sour smell prevalent in so many hefe-weizens. It pours with a real nice head, and the liquid is very cloudy. The taste is great.

Aroma of fermented yeast. Had a good head to start with but flatened out. So the carbination wasn’t there in my glass. Dry spice flaove that made it a little heavy on the palate. May have to get another one due to the facts on the commercial deScription I didn’t pour this one properly.

5ooml bottle, wiezen glass...pour carefully! crazy racing carbonation, nice frothy head. Smells of bananas, lemons, with a faint allusion to sweet basil...Light and refreshing with its somewhat tart/acidic finish(although I don’t feel it is pronouncedly acidic)...it doesn’t offer me much in the way of pondering flavor, but this isn’t a beer to think about. Its certainly dry and bubbly, this is one to just gulp down. I’m not somebody who drinks wheat beers of any form very often, but I can see this coming in handy on a humid Nebraska summer day...

White head, cloudy orangeish body. A sweet and sour aroma. The taste start slightly sweet and ends kind of acidic. The acidic taste dimishes though when the beer gets warmer. I’d try it again.

jasonp (1565) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2005
Cloudy yellow/orange with a thick white head. Great aroma of clove, banana and yeast. Flavor has notes of banana, lemon/citrus, clove, coriander, spices, wheat and yeast. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Great head retention. Nice beer but I would have preferred it a touch sweeter.

Great beer, and nice example of the style. It really did not seperate itself from other wheat beers, though. Nice light citrus taste. I’d drink it again.

Padron4KM (782) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2005
500ml bottle, no date code.
Pours out like a hazy yellow sunset, light orangy yellow at the top of the glass, fading to pale straw towards the bottom.
Head is large, thick, creamy and long lasting. As it slowly fades it leaves a a thick pattern of lacing.
Aroma is banana pudding with a vanilla wafer crust, a touch of pepper.
creamy smooth doughy mouthfeel.
Flavor is spicy first, (pepper and clove,) then a touch lemony sweet in the middle, banana and pepper on the finish.
It was a warm day today and this was the perfect refresher.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2005
Pretty decent hefe with all the characteristics I would expect. Nice hazy yellow body. Little disappointing in the taste and aroma though. While the cloves and citrus and bannana were coming through, I found this hefe watery and very low in taste. Still good, but I expected a little more from this brewery.
