Bottle. Poured a murky amber with a medium sized white creamy head that had excellent lacing. The aroma was heavy of bread malts with a meaty doughy yeast scent and hints of citrus. It tasted very yeasty with notes of citrus at first and finished with a nice malty yeast flavor with a nice note of citrus and left the flavor lingering for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and very creamy in texture and had a soft carbination. Overall an exquisit representation of this style, very nice with a slice of lemon.

Pours fizzy in a hazy yellow. Has a wheat and lemon aroma. Taste is sweet with citrus (lemons and lime) and heavy wheat. A smooth flavor and refreshing aftertaste.

On tap at Brews Brothers. Lemon sweet aroma. Color of straw and honey. First thing I taste is banana. Then I can get the nice honey and lemon taste. Like a nice tea. Not usually into this style, but this is pretty good. Maybe its the American version of it I don’t like.

One of the first beers I fell in love with. A great creamy head with notes of flowers and lemon and vanilla and the beer itself is so smooth with a hint of citrus and tons of bready wheatiness. Just a damn fine example of a damn fine style.

Fruity aroma, lots of spice. Cloudy banana pour. Good head and retention. More full bodied than most in the class. Drinkable and tasty.

Draft at Moriartys. Cloudy amber pour. Large fizzy head. Not my style of beer at all. Yet, I appreciate that here meets admirably the style of a proper Hefeweizen in the proper German tradition. Bready, citrusy and yeasty. Lemon zested Challah bread. Light tangerine marmalade. Dry finish. Aroma I’d a bit ascetic. Ultimately maybe a lemon shortbread with an eggy vanilla meringue top. Nicely complex.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small long lasting white head and little lace. Aroma is bready wheat, coriander, banana, and light citrus. Flavour is bready wheat, mildly spicy(coriander I believe, faint banana, and some citrus. Great example of a German hefe!

Another high quality beer from Ayinger. Not at all foamy. Amateur, not aristocrat appearance. Very good and smooth taste. Fruity and yeast. Brewed with love. If you feel unsure what to have tonight, choose this, doesn’t let you down.
