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.

Pours out to a cloudy gold in the glass. Aroma is that of banana and yeast. Taste is that of banana, cloves and nutmeg. A very nice hefe. Highly drinkable.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2002
Another good German wheat beer. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow color with a big, lingering white head. Leaves good lacing down the sides of the glass. Nice yeasty, fruity, wheat aroma. Medium bodied with a perfect amount of malty sweetness balanced with spiciness. Very smooth and delicious, one of the best wheat beers.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Light golden color with a typical tall slightly off white head. Light banana, clove and vanilla aromas. Fruity and dry all in one. In the top five in my hefe list.

Very nice wheat. Tremendously cloudy with a light head and citrus smells. Sour yeast dominates more citrus flavors and a nice grassy taste.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2002
Delicate head with sweet ethereal aroma of cloves. Very light hazy, golden color. Light body. Good mouthfeel. Fruity wheat taste. Sweet finish. I have mentioned this yet in my ratings of other Ayinger beers, but I like the bottle cap artwork.

BeyaMC (47) - Tirschenreuth, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2002
Perfect for the Bavarian Tradition of "Frühschoppen". Goes well together with Weisswurst and Brezn. Fresh and inspiring

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Big white head. Pale in complexion. Light fruit aromas. Complex, bananas, vanilla, dry and acidic, light to medium bodied, light dry hop finish, lingering fruitiness. Decent and definately quaffable, I feel its a classic weiss.
