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.

I would agree that this a benchmark for the style. Nice yeast and citrus aroma. Lemon and honey color with creamy foam, also cloudy. Great taste of spice, banana, yeast and citrus. Earthy with grains. Nice weight to the palate with even finish. Well balanced and great option if you’re in the mood for any Hefeweizen.

* Old rating, 0,5l crown-top-bottle, 2006. Leckeres, mild-weiches Bier. Hefige Banane, Nelken, nicht zu süß. Leckerer, intensiv hefiger mild-weicher Nachgeschmack. Tolle Hefe-note mit mild-weicher Banane bleibt lange auf der Zunge! Toll!

Pours a cloudy gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of biscuit, honey, and some spices and floral notes. The flavor is bread and homey up front with a slightly spicy backbone and semi dry finish over a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
