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.

Murky pale yellow color with a massive white head. The aroma and flavor were typical clove/banana/ bready tones. Nice average wheat beer.

I was not impressed by this beer. The taste was pretty bold but the aftertaste was rather foul. The aroma mimicked the aftertaste. There's a decent amount of flavor when you first taste it but once that foul taste kicks in it ruins it.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2003
Sweet and wheaty aroma. Slightly bitter with touch of citrus rind. Light cloudy amber beer. Huge frothy white lacing head. Medium heavy carbonation and light body. Light and refreshing in taste. Wheaty with light citrus notes. Bubblegum and alcohol. Clean sweet finish and after. This is a nice wheat, though less substance in body compared to Paulaner, Franziskaner, etc. Quite good.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 27, 2003
(Bottle). Cloudy light golden colour, large head. Typical hefe aroma (which is good), cloves, flowers and some citrus. Light bodied, typical hefe flavour but there's just too little of it, thin mouthfeel. Finish / aftertaste is definitely too thin / weak. The Ur-Weisse is a better choice.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2003
This is a really nice Weizen. It has a beautiful golden cloudy body and a snow-white head on top. Nice wheat malt flavor and one of my favorite overall Weiss/Weizens. I am constantly impressed by the abundance of great beers coming from Germany and especially the Weizens. This one ranks with Paulaner and Schneider. You won't be dissapointed.

As strong as I tried to be there is no way to ignore the comments of my beer drinking companion that kept repeatedly saying "this is good. This is SO good. This is good". While may not be ALL THAT, it is indeed good and in possession of those Bavarian weiss traits - clove, banana esthers. Also helped that somehow it seemed fresh. Big thumbs up.

Nice wheat beer. Fruity, banana, and vanilla flavor. Finishes dry, clean and crisp.

SOLID wheat beer, very good, refreshing wheat. Very impressed, but still prefer Paulaner.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Cloudy yellow wheat beer with lacy white head. Thin in the mouth, light, and spicy. Little fruit or banana in this wheat beer; rather, it has the characteristic spiciness, with lots of pepper and clove.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2003 I had my first Ayinger this evening; it was exceptionally good. It contained a good deal of sediment in the bottle, which made for a cloudy straw color when poured. Fairly strong wheat aroma and taste.---Rerate 6/20/03--- I have picked up upon a creamy, oily palate, as well as a banana, and vanilla aroma. Quite nice overall, this is one of the better wheat beers that I have indulged in thus far.
