3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/2 l bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, nice white head. Not as dark as one would want or expect. Malty aroma, clove and a touch of banana. Smooth malty flavor, clove and banana. Nice even carbonation. Well made brew, not quite a dunkelweizen, but a decent weizen none-the-less.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber-gold, cloudy, with an off-white diminishing head. Scent of apple, yeast, apricot, and an odd plant flavor. Taste is the same with the addition of yeast and wheat that comes through better as the beer warms. Oily mouthfeel, not unpleasant, that ends with the strange plant aftertaste. Good beer but the sum is less than the parts.

The colour isn’t the most attractive and the nose is rather simple banana bread, but the beer is pretty good. Good hit of bananas up front with bready undertones and texture. The finish is lightly spicy with a different fruitiness. The mouthfeel improves as the carbonation fades.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color with semi-large head that disappears immediately. Aroma is of heavy malt and wheat. Oddly enough, the taste does not confirm that. Slight malt flavor to match a healthy dose of wheat. Some fruit, maybe banana, as well. Fairly thin. Quite tasty!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
06.29.04 50cl bottle. Hazy, opaque, iced tea color. White head is medium/small and bubbly. Smells like banana bread, some milk chocolate notes. Bananas are all over flavor, too. Nutty. Very nice, slightly sour finishing acidity. Some fresh, grassy bite, mostly just deliciously malty. Very nice, as are most Ayinger beers.
