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.

Enjoyed from a 16.9oz bottle in a hefeweizen glass. The beer pours a just slightly hazy deep yellow, with a moderate to high white head. The aroma shows characters of banana, and a slightly husky grain note. The palate shows that same husky, tannin-like grain note up front, before some nice banana. Carbonation is assertive, but not a distraction. The beer seems to have held up really well, given the long and unintended aging time. The finish is quite dry, nicely fruity, and again carries a slightly grainy note. Overall, it would be wonderful to try this beer in its homeland, but an enjoyable drinking experience, just the same.

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 (3439) - 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!

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
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)

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.
