Pours a hazy pale golden color, topped with a hefty white foamy head. Aroma of wheat, lots of fruits and some soury notes. Taste is sweet and wheaty, also a bit fruity. Not bad at all.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
500 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 45 degrees F.
A: Pours a beautifully cloudy deep straw gold, and forms a spectacularly frothy head of tight white bubbles. The head alone leaves lacing down the glass as it recedes, and so too the beer itself, in sheets of tightly-entwined froth that slowly split apart to slip down the sides of the glass in small patches. Columns of tiny bubbles can be seen erupting continuously from the bottom of the glass, only to vanish about half an inch into their ascent, obscured by the cloudiness.
S: A rich bouquet of wheat, fruit, and spice greets the nose from the glass. Banana, apple, pear, and honeydew melon skip along arm-in-arm, amidst softly, faintly bready wheat, while clove and coriander cavort alongside.
T: Bliss. So much fruitiness, packed into a single beer without overdoing the intensity or going over the top. No one flavor leaps out, but instead, all seem to hit and subtly dance and shift about in unison. All the fruits from the aroma are present, all rolling through the backdrop of silky wheat to precisely the same degree, with exactly the right amount of spice from the clove and coriander notes. A hint of a citrus tinge rounds out the flavor profile. Delightful.
M: Light, airy, and lively, this hefe sparkles across the palate and tongue, yet manages to avoid having the carbonation sharpness appear in the taste.
O: This is, to me, the perfect hefeweizen, and quite possibly the perfect beer - flavorful yet subtle, complex yet approachable, refreshing and intriguing, able to be drunk quickly or sipped and savored. I have no idea how Ayinger works this sorcery, but I am eminently pleased they do.

33cl beer. Hazy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Banana, yeast, spices and bread in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced with some fruity notes coming out of the bitterness. Overall, a very good weisse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
cloudy yellow-white with thin, coarse, and fast-fading white head. Aroma is a tart yeast, wheaty flavor, light spice, bit of cloves. I would have thought it was a great but subtle Belgian blonde aroma had I not known better. bit of semi-sweet apple cider. Body is a little oily-to-watery, with light, fat carbonation. little burn. Flavor is a bit tart and lemony grain, with hints of banana bread underneath. A very pleasant Weiss, not over carbonated (Hoegarden :( )nor overly banana (like some American attempts.) Yum!
