Poured with a large white head, Cloudy dark copper body. Lots of bubbles in my hefe glass. Aroma of lemons, cloves and some bread. The taste is bananas, peaches and watermelon. The background has a touch of cloves. The finish is a little sweet. This is a nice solid and subtle beer. I am glad to see that Ayinger is even in one of my local grocery stores.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2004 Aroma is pleasing - Clove, peach, bready .... Appearance is amber/copper with a nice sustained head ... Flavor gets off to a good start with hints of clove, peach and pepper, but then the beer collapses into a disappointing watery finish. Good but not great.

Bottle. Complex aroma - hints of peach, clove and cinnamon. Medium tan slightly cloudy with moderate head. Clove flavor up front with banana and orange toward the finish. A good beer but closer to a Hefe.

This beer reinforces my love of the wheat style. Well-balanced and slightly fruity, this one is sure to satisfy. Even better with a lemon floatin’ in the glass.

Amber color with tall thin off-white head. Nice over-ripe banana aroma. Just the right amount of malt. Ayinger always gets it right.
