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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Wow. Very Nice beer. Great bananna taste. Dominated by citrus. If this beer was a little bit stronger it would have been a perfect five

I had this with Christmas dinner, and was impressed with the color, malt/hop/spice taste and champaign like dryness. Highly recommended.

Whoever came up with "American Style Hefe" after having one of those should be bitch-slapped. They ruined a beautiful thing. I finally get a chance to use my glass from the Spring Beer & Wine Fest (Portland, OR)! Pours a beeauuutiful whiteish yellow with a huge head that lasts the entire glass even while leaving behind a thick lace. Smells strongly of clove or some other fragrant spice. Even the scent is refreshing. Tastes of sweat spice with a hint of florals. It's very complex but I really can't pick out much else specifically. Mouthfeel is foamy yet crisp and clean. Drinkability is pretty good, but I gotta be honest and say that I couldn't have too many of these. It's almost over-carbonated and a tad too sweet to have more than a few. Very tasty, and my first experience with this brewery. At only $2 a 500ml bottle, I'm heading back to try the others.

Golden hazy color with a huge frothy white head. Bountiful nose of fruits, spices and yeasty-cloves, lovely. Banana character really shines through. The taste is creamy and refrshing. Finishes on a high note, fruity and smooth. Don't tarnish this beer by putting a lemon wedge in it. That lemon will just hide the flavors and aroma that come together. It's time to rate a classic.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Pale yellow color with lines of very fine bubbles rising to the surface. Spectacular white rocky head. Very strong aroma of fresh but spicy banana and orange. Complex flavor of wheat, spicy clove and malt. Very delicate palate at the start which comes on stronger and more noticably towards the finish.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Hazy golden color with a good creamy head and a fruity aroma, apples, oranges, a bit bready. Medium bodied and tangy with tasty wheat and citrus flavors. Spicy clove and ginger notes rounded this one out and the finish was short and on the sweet side. Another quality brew from Ayinger.

spicy aroma; pale yellow with a long-lasting head; some spiciness in the flavor, but it tastes watered-down
