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.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Cloudy light blond color; giant head. Strong spicy aroma, with some citrus fruits notes. Quite good malt, residual sweetness, good wheat character, spicy. Undoubtly one of the best weizen on the market.

heemer77 (5154) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Fairly light colored with lots of bubbles that are not felt in the mouth. Strong lemony aroma and taste. Overrides a lot of the beer. Light and refreshing with a little banana.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a thick frothy white head. Refreshing citrus taste that would be great on a warm summer day.

Wonderful pale yellow, orange cloudy color. Poured a nice fluffy head. Very nice and citrusy. It had a nice light, smooth mouthfeel and it was very refreshing.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Initial observation was that this beer very pale colored, unfiltered, almost milky. Nice head that never quit. The most striking thing about this beer was its potent aroma. Fruity, apples, a lot of esters. The nose didn't reflect on the taste at all. The flavor was very dry, the champagne description hit right on the spot. Very bubbly and effervescent mouthfeel.

shaeffbser (70) - Vail, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Nice frothy head that lasts with a golden cloudy body. Wheat and yasty nose with sweet under tones. Sweet wheat taste hints of lemon and aftertaste is a little yeasty. Light palate that is crisp.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2004
Draft at Ayinger Brauhaus - A somewhat overcarbonated, very typical German hefe. Fruity aroma with generous amounts of banana flavor. Great head retention.

Beautiful. Great flowery nose with a ton of zesty yeast to balance it out. Nice hazy off yellow color with a constant stream of tight little bubbles flowing to the underside of a rocky, thick, brilliant white head. Snappy tart flavors jump all over your tounge immediately and turn dry and lemony finish. Nice yeasty finish to cap it all off. Just leaves me wanting more.

Wonderful aromas and tastes of bread, yeast, spices; a well-balanced thirst quencher.
