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.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - APR 19, 2002
Cloudy dark straw with some yeast chunks. Whipped cream white head. Heavy rushing carbonation. Aroma of zesty lemons, musty yeast and cloves. Crisp and tart with a luscious wheat flavor. Medium light body. Banana/clove flavors and a lemony zip. Head remains thick and sticky. Gets tarter and thinner as it sits. Less Weizen and more Wit like. Finishes thinner with a surge of light clove flavor. A refreshing but pricey Helles Hefe. Good choice if you just want one.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2002
Spicy and flavorful. A well-crafter wheat. A little thin with a bitter aftertase typical in a German wheat.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 2, 2002
Fairly dry for a wheat beer, although not the ’brut’ that the commercial description claims. Lingering spice, although, as Volgon says, too thin in the finish. Stick with the Ayinger Ur-Weisse if you crave wheat beer from Aying.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Very impressive. Solid bodied with an excellent light flavor. They know how to make a good german wheat beer over there at ayinger.

Large white fizzy head, acidic and slight banana nose. Mild fruity taste, that ends too thin.

I guess I just don’t like wheat beers.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2002
Deep golden color, hazy but not quite cloudy, good initial head that dissipates quickly, lasting carbonation. aroma is spice/banana. Flavor retains the spice and banana notes, and adds citrus, more tart than bitter. Very good overall for a wheat beer.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2002
Probably the best hefe I have had. The tartness gives it something more than Paulaner or Pyramid. Enormous head! Huge! Nice cloudy gold with yeast floating within. Went down smooth with lots of sweetness turning to tartness in the end. Good work Ayinger! You make good stuff.

I’m just beginning my exposure to wheats. My only previous experience, before my palate was ready, was Bell’s Oberon. I really disliked it. Then Aventinus, which I liked. Now, I can handle this, I think, and I think it is good.
