Pure white creamy head over a pale yellow, cloudy brew. It had a faint fruity aroma that followed up in the taste. My glass had a cloud of something in suspension just under the head. The flavor was crisp, clean and refreshing. Lightly hopped.

Slight hazy gold color with arom of hopcit and honey. Tastes creamy malty, with hopcit, honey, and slight apricot in the finish. Solid palate and good complexity. At this point in my life, I place Ayinger up there in the top 25 brewers of all time.....bar none.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lemony-wheat color, golden and hazy with a small white head that reduced quickly to a scummy film. Aroma of ketchup to start: lemony-tomato. Some malts follow, and doughy yeast. Buttery mouthfeel with a sour citrus flavor leading to sweet malts to finish. Gave me a headache. Twice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2007 Aroma is malty, bready, with an undertone of fresh hops. The appearance is a bright, clear yellow. The flavor is just as the description says: fresh clean malt, bready and earthy, and a little citrus in the finish. An exceptionally crisp lager. The palate is full, and the carbonation is as well, but it is not injected carbonation, it’s natural, tiny bubbles of CO2 that help the flavor fill your entire mouth. This is a delicious lager that would make an awesone everyday beer, the adjective "clean" being a perfect summation.

Crystal clear bright gold. Nice white head. Aroma of bread, cookies and fallen leaves. Crisp malty beer like a restrained pilsener. A bit of wet wood in the taste. Foamy on the tongue.

This is my first beer from this catagory ... and I think its ok... but I feel like there is a cardboard aroma and taste.
This beer in particular was almost overpoweringly apple/pear flavored/scented. IUt pours a nice straw gold color and with a pretty large, but breif head.
