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.

At first you understand that champagne sparkle and lemon on taste and palate. and the flowers. Later the vanilla comes more dominate and enjoyable. Also at first you get that tang of orange/citris before the banana <<< This combination plays on the mind throughout the drink while the vanilla comes thru. I could not get the head I wanted out of this bottle but once I do I will update this rating. Lighter oily texture than I’d imagine.

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

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.

Pours a clear blond, and I was expecting cloudy, with a finger of dense white head. Wheat malt, fruits, banana, nice yeasts smells. Wonderful taste wheat, banana, fruits, a little vanilla, yeast. Really good beer. Best enjoyed with your children sleeping over at grandma’s house.

A little metallic. All the required flavors for an on model hefe. Quite good. Perhaps too simple.

Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, lemon, wheat, vanilla, cloves, yeast. Taste has similar notes - dry sweet with light hoppy bitterness in finish. Thin to medium body and fizzy carbonation. Nice wheat beer, highly drinkable.

At the nose I get citrus and a hint of vanilla. It smells very vibrant and cheerful if that makes any sense. I think that’s usually the aroma of cloves. Pours a very hazy gold with a long-lasting head and bubbles that seem to never stop streaming upward, a la champagne. Up front , the taste isn’t too far from some form of pink bubble gum, but as it moves into palate that changes to banana, the main characteristic of this aftertaste. This is a top of its class hefeweizen without a doubt. It seems like all Ayinger products are at the top of their genre. One of the aspirations of my life is to drink at least one of these days every single day.
