Hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma was wheat, spice, fruit. Fairly good body with light carbonation. Flavor was very wheaty, yeasty, and spicy.

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.

Cloudy yellow wheat beer. Sour wheat and corn and banana and honey-like malt/yeast combo, and brown sugar grains.. Sharp coriander and cloves, better with some juice or slice of citrus. Thin creamy mouthfeel. Lightly acidic. Mild carbonation. Malt and banana aftertaste.

This bottle had yeasty gook all over it. Literally all over it. I popped it and there was sediment all inside the rim of the bottle. So awesomely gross. So Awesomely gross. Pours with a Giant head, to big for my glass beer everywhere. I feel so german right now. Flavor is good but leaves a good bit to be desired. Very obscure in the nose and on the tongue. The only thing that comes to mind is the color grey, this is because nothing is too distinct. Malt has a lovely presence but it is obscured by the yeast. I either got a crappy bottle or this beer could be better. Its certainly not bad, but could benefit from some clarity.

I have to admit to not being a big fan of the style, but I actually found this one pretty interesting. Looks great in the glass and has a little less of the sweet flavor that I generally find off-putting in the style.

Super cloudy orange/brown color, fizzy off white head, great aroma like tart cider, very carbonated, creamy mouthfeel, banana, dull hop bitters, very refreshing on the first hot day of summer, just like caribou rides.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Malty aroma with some apples and some other "weird" aroma that I must say I’m not real fond of. Pours a very hazy orange with a medium head but not a lot of retention. Very malty taste with very sweet finish. Definite banana and some cloves. A lot of apple flavor in the finsh increases the sweetness of this beer. A nice beer, but that odd aroma will drop the rating slightly, and not indicate how much I actually like this beer.
