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.

Description of aroma is accurate, vanilla and citrus. Good flavor, just lacking a little bit, can’t put my finger on it. Overall very enjoyable, and quite sweet. Awesome bottlecaps.

Interesting foggy honey color with great head and lace. Citrusy/banana smell with a definite hint of flowers. I may tend to agree with the lemon and vanilla description. Rather thin and mild yet there is a complex maltiness that tickles the palate. I think this may be a bit overrated, as it seems a bit watered down for a good wheat, but it’s pleasantly refreshing....did I mention how cool the bottle caps are?

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 Frugal lemons and wheat ride refreshing effervescence…Admirable balance of banana esters and clove-y phenols...Excellent, refreshing weizen, from the bottle and on tap at the Ayinger Speis und Trank in Munich…

Aroma of produce fruit stand - very fresh. Just cloudy enough but not so that you can’t see the ever flowing bubbles. Smooth, clean refresing taste with a hint of citrus.

Didn’t get the big head on this one. Odd color, almost beige, cloudy. Nice refreshing grassy, flowery aroma. Tastes very clean with a touch of citrus-spice but mostly a very clean sweet-tart pure taste that is very refreshing w/o the overly spicy elements of some wheat beers. Great warm weather beer.

Cloudy gold pour nice head that sticks around as a thin lace. Aroma is citrusy and spicy. Nice palate, not to thin with enough carbonation to tingle the tongue. Nice tart finish.

caesar (5586) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2003 After having tasted all those delicious German wheats, this Ayinger fit in nicely. Delicious aroma of the fine hefe, thirst-quenching palate.

Pale and foggy, downright beautiful creamy and long-lasting head. I seven-minute poured it as best I could and was very happy with the results. Oh, onto the beer. Floral bouquet, extremely crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, nice banana-clove things going on. Also hints of citrus, maybe pears. Clean finish. One of the more complex and flavorful hefes I’ve ever had.
