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.

Very cloudy orange appearance with classic Weizen foam. Lots of yeasts, of course with the expected banana/cloves. A bit of citrus freshness as well. Taste is very interesting, fruity, and with a floral/spicy kick in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Great stuff, and something different.

Bottle. Typical hefeweizen pour. Golden, hazy with a big fluffy head. Aroma is spicy, clove, banana, lemon. The taste is wonderful. Clove, fruity but the kicker are the hints of floral that put it over the top. Another great beer from Ayinger.

A brilliant weizenbeer. Beautifully balanced beer. A bit more citrus fruitiness to it when you compare it to the Weihenstephaner who has more of a banana fruitiness. Looks like a weizen, pours like a weizen, smells like a weizen and taste like a great weizen. Really refrehing.

Opaque golden yellow with decent lasting lacing white foam head. Aroma is citrus with vanilla tones, nice spicy. Good soft toned citrus taste, again vanilla taste. A very good Weisse. (Velp 201411)

Bottle. Pours golden, cloudy, small head. Taste is very standard hefeweizen, similar to Maisel Weiss or Paulaner Hefeweizen - not that that’s a bad thing! Strong citrus notes, slightly sweet, no bitterness.

Hazy yellow beer with a big white foam. Lots of citrus aromas with a hint of banana. Fresh carbonation. Good balance in flavors. Some sweetness and sour lemon. A really good weisse.

Another from the list of most ratings and available to me. Nice light fruit, lemon flavors and aromas. Hay flavors running throughout. Wheaty toasty grain. Banana little bit of spice.

Lemon is strong with this one. I mean, there is the typical banana / clove one would expect, but then it is different with some citrus. Here is what Superspak says " 500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours super cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2-3 finger dense off white head with great retention that redueces to a thick cap that lingers. Some spotty lacing on the glass, with plenty of carbonation streaming up as expected. Aromas of huge banana, orange, pepper, clove, biscuit, grass, and herbal spiciness. Fanatastic and well balanced aromas, with good strength. Taste of lemon, banana, clove, pepper, orange, breadiness, wheat, grass, and herbal spiciness. Lingering notes of citrus, banana, clove, and spiciness on the finish for a bit. Great balance of flavors overall, with no cloying flavors as expected. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Incredibly smooth and drinkable; this will be in my summer fridge. Overall this is a fantastic, well balanced, and super drinkable hefeweizen; with some pretty big flavor. I would get this again, it is priced well. " He gave it a 4.3.

"this one’s definitely got the whole banana-clove thing going one. Refreshing and aromatic. You can taste the wheat. quite good for the style, but not "blow your socks off"."

Pours hazy golden with a nice head. Aroma is banana and clove. Flavor is perfect hefe, not too malty, nice bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
