3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The second half of the bottle poured an opaque mocha brown, with a small creamy head. Flavor had a bite of lemon and a somewhat gritty palate due to the sediment in the bottle. I will be buying this again.

Murky brown with a white head;Smells like cold mashed potatoes with a trace coffee. "Prickly" carbonation mixes with a faint roasty-ness combined with typical german weissbier flavors, all most no finish. OK and just O-K.

Pours a light yellow hazy brown with a large, pearly white head. Light yeasty aroma, with wheat and hay. A bit chewy, flavours have some orange rind, good malt and is very moist on the palatte. Clean finish if not the most interesting, it is extremely solid, enjoyable and drinkable.

Hazy brown with a big tan head that went away quickly. Lots of spices in the smell and taste along with some wheat and malt. Aftertaste was of slightly sour fruit. Quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Nice amber-brown appearance. Very smooth. Not a lot of ’bite’ to it. Refreshing taste with a slightly sour-fruit finish.....
next try was sweeter, and had a little more bite. A sweet, refreshing caramel taste.

Thick foamy head dissipates quickly. Five minutes later I was left with one of the most unpleasant looking murky brown substances ever put in a beer glass. It looked like dirty dishwater. Luckily the taste is still fine. Highly carbonated, malty, wheat taste with undertones of fruity sweetness.

Big, foamy head. Beautiful unfiltered deep amber appearance. Malted, spicy aroma. Smooth on the palate - wheat, fruit, spices, yeast. So good!

A slight malty smell. The color of this beer was a light reddish brown and the head pale beige. The head faded quickly and left little lacing. The taste was light and crisp with just a hint of spices. The dominant flavors were that of barely toasted wheat bread and fruit, perhaps apricots or peaches. Not an outstanding beer, but smooth and very drinkable.

This brewed poured a medium-large white head with small-medium bubbles. There was very little lacing on the sides of my glass. Carbonation was observed rising to the top. It had a fruity aroma to it and it was a bit on the watery side. I did not notice any bitterness or aftertaste with this brew; however, I was disappointed with this brew as I expected it to be better since it is brewed by Ayinger.
