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.

(o,5 ltr Bottle) Cloudy, straw body with a thin white head. There are some great Ayingers out there but this isn't one of them - this is average at best. Yes, bananas et al but not of the true complexity I am accustom from this brewery...

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 Very hazy yellow-straw pour with a tall, creamy, white head. Big nose of bananas and cloves. Light pepper in the background. Rich bready aromatics along with honey and vanilla. Sweet bread and bananas on the tongue; spicy and peppery towards the finish ending with a drying herbal aftertaste and a touch of vanilla. Creamy but dry body with champagne carbonation. Not quite as spectacular as I remember, but still very good and refreshing. Overall score went from 17 to 15. 50cl bottle, bbe 10.08.

Hazy yellow in color with a fizzy, frothy white head. Extremely carbonated. Smells of moderate malt (sweet bread) light hops (flowers, lemons) and light yeast (dough). Also a hint of bananas. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, and lightly bitter throughout with an average finish. Med-light watery feel. Very refreshing brew and one of the tastier wheats I’ve had. Less overpowering bananas than Hoegaarden.

Everytime i see an Ayinger i can only think of,what a shame it is to tear that bottle cap off.It is by far the most artfull bottle cap i have encountered yet from any beer.Anyway here we go Cloudy straw color,small white head that faded quite quickly leaving a slight lacing on the sides.Malty sweet aroma with a mild yeastiness and a strong lemon grass smell.Mild to light medium spice as well.Sweet taste with a mild malt presence,mildly spice and very fruity with the fruit being in the lemon grass arena,with maybe some hints of banana,fairly strong carbonation,the after taste is mildly hoppy but definatley has a decent lemon tone to it with a little spice coming through at the tail end.A very nice brew thanks to Wawood for this one as well.

Lt gold color. Large head. Aroma is malty and fruity. A light bodied Hefe-Weizen. Malts are fruity, banana, cloves and peaches. Smooth and creamy. A really nice mouthfeel, the rest of the beer is kind of ordinary. Light and refreshing, but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Draught: The beer pours a hazy, golden color. Fairly decent head. The aroma is somewhat fruity: definitely citrus and mainly lemon. Fairly decent body. Good wheat taste, with some citrus taste also. VERY GOOD!

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Cloudy yellow body, a fair amount of carbonation with a lot of frothy lace. Lemony yeast aroma. The flavor is lemon and wheat blended well with the somewhat sweet malt. The taste is light and the finish dry. Im not a huge fan of wheats but the light flavor of this one is very good.

Lemony spicy aroma with a pale straw yeasty appearance. Effervescence lifts the bitterness and soft wheat body smack into yer pallete.

Pale standard German wheat beer appearance, with a slightly citric bitter aroma. Bitter and slightly orange juice flavour. Overall a very pleasant beer.
