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 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.

33cl beer. Hazy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Banana, yeast, spices and bread in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is well balanced with some fruity notes coming out of the bitterness. Overall, a very good weisse.

cloudy yellow-white with thin, coarse, and fast-fading white head. Aroma is a tart yeast, wheaty flavor, light spice, bit of cloves. I would have thought it was a great but subtle Belgian blonde aroma had I not known better. bit of semi-sweet apple cider. Body is a little oily-to-watery, with light, fat carbonation. little burn. Flavor is a bit tart and lemony grain, with hints of banana bread underneath. A very pleasant Weiss, not over carbonated (Hoegarden :( )nor overly banana (like some American attempts.) Yum!

Colour: straw gold with a rich white head. Nose: citrus, orange, vanilla, wheat (bread). Tingling carbon sensation. Quite rich. Flavours: Lemon, mandarin, banana. Rich, creamy and full of flavour. Finish: long, fruity, mellow and thirst-quenching. Verdict: amazing hefeweizen. One of the finest and most original today.

On tap at Ayinger bierstube, Aying. This weizen uses, as most of the bavarian breweries, the famous Weihenstephaner yeast. And it resembles my all-time favourite Weihenstephaner Weizen. Deep dark yellow to light orange color, hazed, big creamy white head looking like snowy mountains that does’t fade quickly and remains til the end. Weizen perfume on the nose. Classic aroma, very malty with what, orange, banana, vanilla and yeast. Taste is well balanced. Body is medium, soft, smooth, texture tends to be creamy and partly dusty. Finish is dry, very clean. This come closer to the HB one, which i like a lot too, would need to be ’darker’ and add in a bit more hops to pair with the weihenstephaner but still a rock solid and extremely pleasurable top-notch weissbier.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Aroma of bread combined with sweet and slight spicey notes. A good solid hefeweizen. The taste of banannas is not overpowering in this brew.

By far my favorite hefeweizen, and the one I know of the highest quality. Murky amber, it offers a clean taste while having the requisite complexity of the yeast. If there’s one hefe you have to have, for me, it’s this one.

Erzengel (3543) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2014
* 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!
