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.

(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.

JK (4604) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Gold and cloudy. Thick white head that stays until the end. Scent of grapefruit. Very strong taste of wheat with some citrus. Thick and full bodied.

Bottle. A hazy golden orange color with a foamy white head and lots of rising bubbles. A spicy vanilla and citrus aroma with a wheat vanilla flavor.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - MAR 7, 2003
Light nose - not much there, cloudy khaki color, big bubble head. Nice hefe flavors with untertones of oranges and other citrusy things. Little vanilla too. No bitter at all. Creamy mouth feel, meaty and smooth. Maybe too sweet, but I don't care - I liked this.
