COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew Leichte Bräu -Weisse with the same high quality malt and hops as we use in Ayinger Bräu Weiss, just less of them. Our goal is to brew a beer with the delicious fruity wheat beer taste and low alcohol.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
On tap (5.2%): Aromas of yeast, banana and spice. These flavors followed into a medium-bodied beer that was well-balanced with a bit of dryness to it.

Maria (10130) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2008
Dark golden, hazy with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of wheat, clove and banana. The flavour is surprisingly powerful considering the low ABV, and IMO just as nice as many stronger wheat beers. It has sweetness and notes of wheat, clove, banana and the finish has a slightly dry citrus.

Ernest (6161) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Bottle, Ayinger pub, Munich. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (bread), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of banana and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Nothing special, but not bad for a light weissbier.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 26, 2007
This beer pours a cloudy orange color with a medium head to it. It has a nice aroma of floral sencts and hops. as you drink it there is an initial bitterness with some tang on the back of your palate. It is very appealing and a ncie dinner beer.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottle. Hazy hefe, quite darkish yellow color. Not very flavorful and a bit watery. More on the hoppy spicy side than sweet. Ok. Re-rate: Much better on second tasting, almost on par with some regular hefes. Thick yeasty mouthfeel and surprisingly strong flavor for a leichte.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 0,5l bottle at the Brauereigasthof, Aying 17 Jun 07. Dark golden coloured. Unclear. Hardly any aroma. Unvaried metallic flavor.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2007
500ml bottle. Hazy amber body with a thin foamy head. Smell of green apples and cloves. A sharp, but short-lived taste of tart fruits followed by wheaty dryness. Rather thin palate and watery impression (Brauereigasthof, Aying 17.06.2007).

Ritterkreuz (179) - Seneca Falls, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Tried this one at a pub in Rochester NY, and I got to say, I was not disappointed at all. Poured a nice cloudy, copper/yellow color with a white head. immediately I was struck by the banana bread-like smell and taste, though it was not as strong as some other hefeweizen’s I’ve tried. i see it’s listed as 3.2 ABV but the one I had was 5.2 ABV, must be cause I got it in the states.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2007
As expected, a little watery when compared to their other brews. However, for 3.2 ABV this is a very nice beer. Feels like it would go down well on a hot summer day. Bit fruity aroma, rather crisp. Flavor certainly lacks any real nature, but follows the aroma quite well. No real finish and feels very light.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2007
Bottle from freezer - oops, the head is huge! Probably because of me. Hazy orange colour, surprising. Looks like mead. Nice honey aroma, a bit spring in it as well. Quite nice, very refreshing bear at least when enjoyed this cold. I wouldn’t say it’s watery. A bit short finish though.
