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.

Rune (9661) - 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 (1577) - 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.

taunusmies (337) - FINLAND - MAR 21, 2007
Pours hazy and deep golden colour. Huge white head. Strong wheaty and earthy aroma. Mouthfeel is light and sharp, a bit watery. Wheaty taste with hops.

animal8788 (32) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Light yellow with lots of fluffy white head. Cloudy. Strong wheat and hop aroma. Tastes wheaty and spicy. Then the taste changes to pumpkin and cinnamon, and kind of a light sweet aftertaste. Good mouthfeel, pretty thick for a wheat beer, but not too meaty for the style.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 8, 2006
Cloudy orange beer with a big, white and persistent head. Wheaty aroma with some fruity notes. The falavours are dominated by wheat, but there are are the typical fruity notes of the style, with an unexpected herbal flavour. esdpecially in the finish, that is not very good. The body is thin. Not best best from this good brewery, but a decent beer, especially if you consider that is a light beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
Hazy deep golden colour with a large dense white head. Malty, fruity aroma with a light floral note. Malty, sweet fruity flavor with a light dry and floral finish.

Ungstrup (31419) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is primarily fruity, but also with light notes of banana, caramel, and brewmash. The flavor is light wheat, and the mouthfeel very smooth, leading to a light acidic wheaty end. Boring - but for a low alcohol I guess OK.
