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.

Mellow, collected aroma of banana esters, spices, clove, wheat, and the slightest hint of anise and other aromatic herbs. The taste is sweeter than the aroma, with a finish that covers the spectrum of banana notes, in addition to orange and wheat. It is gentle and delicious. Lovely Hefeweizen.

Pours a deep golden crystal color. Head is white and starts off at 1.5 fingers then fades to a 1/4 film that stays. Aroma is a nice even citrus and clove with vanilla and banana hints. Some maltiness and dough linger on the scent as well. A nice tart citrus with balanced clove/banana on the front but nothing too intense (which is a good thing) and finishes with a nice lightly bitter but clove vanilla taste and leaves the mouth dry but not too dry. Wheat hints throughout with enough carbonation to make it fizzy but good. This is how a Weizen beer is supposed to be and Ayinger is a master of the craft. It can be during a hot day or a cold night and I could drink this forever.

Haven’t really had a lot of this kind of beer, but i really liked it. It has murky golden colour and average white head. Slight sour taste that is really pleasant, kind of hints on banana. Pleasant citrusy finish.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow body, medium head (no "Alps", more like a snowy flatland if you insist on using geographical terms). Aroma has bread, banana and yeast. Sweet yeasty taste with more banana. I really don’t get "complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne". A standard German Hefeweizen but nothing really screams "Top 4" in the style.

500ml bottle for local bottle shop in Unterhaching. Very nice weissbier. Pale in colour and full of flavour. Definitely one to try.

Bottle in a little bar in Bellano. Very tastefull, well balanced and refreshing beer. I was very thirsty, so...I’ll have to drink it again to rate it better

In my opinion, both as a beer taster and casual drinker, for 30 odd years, THIS is what beer is supposed to be! Sweet cereal, floral, grass, citrus, bubblegum, vanilla, creme soda...awesome

BeerViking (2309) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Now labelled as Bräuweisse since Ayinger’s rebrand, this pours a hazy yellow with a fine white head and aromas of spicy bread and banana, plus a hint of vanilla. On the palate is an interesting combination of banana bread and a light lemon and spice note.

500ml bottle. Cloudy light orange color. Medium size, thick creamy white head, stays. Looks nice. Banana, citrus, sweetish aroma. Sourish, wheat, grainy, touch of sugars in taste. Mellow taste. Soft carbonation.
