3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow body, medium head (no "Alps", more like a snowy flatland if you insist on using geographical terms). Aroma has bread, banana and yeast. Sweet yeasty taste with more banana. I really don’t get "complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne". A standard German Hefeweizen but nothing really screams "Top 4" in the style.

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.

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