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.

This is the beer that turned me inot a beer geek. I do not care what others think, Ayinger is the best! I am also a hefeweizen fanatic, so I am a little biased.

It’s simply another fantastic hefe, characteristic hazy gold color, banana scent and citursy/banana flavor. Very enjoyable, and it’s great that it comes in a 25oz bottle!

Ayinger Brau-Weisse to me is the perfect German wheat, the aroma is fantastic. Bubble gum, banana, wheat very nice. Cloudy, light straw colored with great C02 and an easy drinker. Flavor cant be beat by any other German wheat in my opinion, bready and 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!!

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"...

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

very pale cloudy light yellow pour. hardly any head...but what is there is a nice white color. wonderful banana and citrus notes on the nose. Delicious. Banana and bread really come through this one and it is wonderful on the palate. nice smooth mouth feel.

I'm very impressed with this beer. The color is a little light, but the flavor makes up for that.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.1%) but there is no freshness date. Appearance: The body has an orange/yellow color with a cloudy haze and some visible carbonation. On top I got a thick and creamy off white head. It is long lasting and makes slick lace ring which slowly slide down the sides of the glass. Smell: The aroma has notes of sweet bubble gum and banana peel with just a light touch of wheat malt. Taste/Palate: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma foreshadowed. Tangy wheat meets the tongue first with a light clove banana yeast notes following. A touch of citrus and spicy/leafy hops leads into the finish which is crisp and fairly dry. The firm medium body has plenty of active carbonation give it a lively snappy texture. Notes: I love the texture and finish on this beer. Some German Hefeweizen beers get a little to slick on the palate but this one is crisp and feels alive with carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding Hefeweizen.

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.
