3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

* 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.

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)

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
