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.

Took a bit to find my Weizen but it was worth it, what an appealing looking beery. Hazy golden yellow with a very noisy frothy head. Really strong citrus, cinnamon and chive in the nose. Very mellow with a complex pallet. Waves of taste. Very well balanced. Now this is what a Hefeweizen should taste like. Refreshing, wet and easy to drink. Not nearly as spicy as the nose would indicate. Really smooth. Citrus, a touch of chives and a hint of Banana. Wishing I had bought more than one of this. Fantastic.

nice new bottles too - but it’s what’s inside that counts : creamy "average" top German Weisse. My fav since short (used to Maisel & Weihenstephaner). This one fits right in at the top of the German - Bavarian knowledge of beer brewing. 100%. And i’m belgian, so "i should know"...

Straw, hazy color, with a pillowy head. Fruit and grain in the smell. Hints of banana, clove, and bubble gum in the taste. Medium body. Very refreshing!

Beautiful color and nose and is a very refreshing and tasty Hefe. Banana and clove like no other. The brewery is outstanding and all their beers are top quality. No wonder they are the highest rated Bavarian brewery in the world!!

500ml bottle. Pours hazy good with a large soapy white head. Citrus aroma, white bread. Tastes of ripe banana. Soft at the beginning and a crisp swallow. Wonderfully refreshing. Clean finish.

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l, courtesy of CanCrusher. Cloudy pale golden color with large creamy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, banana, yeast and herbs. Taste starts with moderate sweet grainy malt, following is refreshing citric acidity with spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Very drinkable, one of the best hefeweizens...

Excellent beer. I have seen this in stores and have never gotten it and today was like "I like beer, I like heffeweizen..why am I not trying this" Best choice of the day. Pours hazy as Los Angeles and right off the bat we have banana, and other soft fruits followed by a pleasant sweetness. Beautiful pillowy head. Taste is unreal. Blast of banana, fruit, and a spiciness that follows. Tastes wonderful. Excellent beer, can’t go wrong this one. Prost!

Dorée avec une grande mousse blanche. L’arôme du blé, banane, levure et du pain fraîche. Le goût resemble l’arôme, avec une finition sec et carbonation moyenne. Très bonne.

Smells nice. Light and fruity. Greasy cloudy appearance. A very nice citrus flavor and quite wheaty for my taste yet it’s still excellent. Easy to drink.

Appearance: this beer pours with a huge head that takes a while to settle down, even when it's settled it's very dense, the beer is a hazy gold color, perhaps a hint darker than the average hefe Aroma: banana, bread, yeast, lemon, tang, spicy, smells really good Taste: banana, bread, lemon, the faintest hint of hops on the finish if you really concentrate, Palate: tons of froth, soft carbonation to me despite what the bottle says, leaves mouth a bit dry, minimal aftertaste Overall: this is an amazing hefeweizen, delicious, very aromatic, and looks good in the glass, pleasantly surprised ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I always get excited about opening up a Ayinger beer. Cloudy lemon-honey color pour with a frothy white head. Good looking beer. Aroma is banana pudding, clove, slightly floral, hints of citrus. Peppery and slightly sour on the front, followed strongly by banana, sugar cookie, and clove. Delicious. This beer is not going to last long. Makes me wish I would have bought more. Definitely one of the best if not the best Hefe Weizen I’ve tried.
