3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Fancy Grocery, NYC. Huge, creamy, off-white head that lasts forever. Muddy brown color and undying carbonated fizziness. Loads of fruit aromas: bananna, pear, pineapple, along with a light hop perfume. Cola, pepper, bread, and a slight solvent smell there too. Very complex and intriguing. Flavor a little dissapointing in comparison: caramel predominates, especially once the extreme fizziness dies down a bit. Very long, dry, bitter finish with a yeasty bite. Chewy, chalky palate. I’m a big fan of Ayinger’s beers, but this one was a bit of a let down. Could have been an old bottle.

Slightly cloudy dark orange pour with medium head. Aroma is very yeasty, as well as malty, some spice notes team up with a mild fruitiness making for a solid nose. Flavor is spice, banana, yeast, doughy. Goes down nice, making for quite a pleasent experience.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A tall, fine head forms in the glass and the aroma suggests a well-crafted wheat. The yeast flavor is surprisingly light for a German wheat (maybe this is obvious since it is not a hefeweizen) and there is a high bubbling quality to the taste. All in all, this is a good wheat beer that lacks a little bit in depth as it leans more toward smoothness.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2005 Bottle. Pours golden orange/amber. Lots of carbonation, a large head results. Malty, yeasty aroma. Some fruits as well. Flavor is rich with yeasty, fruity, malt sweetness, spicy notes, subtle sourness, and an ever so slight roasty finish. Tasty brew.
