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.

Ungstrup (30970) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 22, 2004
An unclear orange beer with a fine white collapsing head. The aroma is of wheat and bananas. The flavor is sweet wheaty and fresh with notes of chewing gum. A very nice hefeweizen. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for bringing this to Denmark.

madsberg (10888) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2004
Bottled: Light yellow coloured. White head. Spices, yeast, banana aroma. All the wellknown hefecharacteristics, but just not strong enough for my likings. Same goes with the flavour. Yeast, wheat, spices etc. are all there, but a little too watery. Dies quickly on the palate.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 19, 2004

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 17, 2004
Sweet and spicy aroma, with hints of lemon. Pours a golden tan, with a large white head. Complex flavor - wheat, yeast, lemon, bananas, spices...the list goes on. Very refreshing, one of the best Hefeweizens I have had. Ayinger has yet to disappoint me!

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 bottled: this is a classic, refreshing, delicious....mmmm, mmm,mm!! weisse beer. this is what the germans do best and nobody can top them. i love this wheat nice and light with lots of flavor. hazy tan yellow with a nice white rocky head in a glass. lots of wheat and bread smell in the nose with a little tingle in the nares with a deep inhalation. banana, spices and lemon on the palate. way smooth and easy to drink. this is probably a little lighter then some typical weisse beers but the best for hot summer days to quench that complex thirst we all have....best of the lights.

Dorwart (2457) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2004
Huge snow white head of fine bubbles. Frothery and lasts a long time. Very plesant aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast and hay. Color is a slightly cloudy, pale gold. Flavor is light and crisp and very refreshing. More lemon flavor with a hint of spices. Not dominated but yeast which is very nice. Finish is clean and refreshing. A great summertime beer that is very eary drinking.

Hangover (1094) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Cloudy, light yellow pour, with a huge, lasting head. Very light aroma. Yeast, wheat, banana are evident. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. A bit heavy on the banana, but the vanilla adds a bit of complexity to this brew. Excellent, smooth finish. Extremely easy to drink. An excellent hefe.
