3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

On tap at Ayingers Speis und Trank . Pours a paler brown than other dunkelweizen I’ve had; cloudy caramel rather than dark brown, though still a thick head. The aroma manages to penetrate the head, and there’s malts and a little banana there. Taste up front is banana, with a little chocolate and bread. Finish is spiced dried fruit.

Aroma: malty and grassy; Appearance: hazy amber pour with white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: fairly rich and malty with banana undertones; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: better than a hefeweizen but still a tad banana-y. Would probably not seek out again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beerdock, Nantwich. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of vanilla, bready malts, banana, clove, some caramel, slight spice and subtle orange. Taste of bready malts, vanilla, banana, spice, some caramel, slight clove, a little wheat and subtle orange zest. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, bready, spicy bitterness in the finish. Not dark and roasty enough to be a dunkelweizen, but as a Weissbier it’s gorgeous. A lovely sweet, vanilla bread aroma followed by a rich, traditional Weissbier flavour with a hint of spice and citrus. Lovely.

bottle. Brown with one finger head. Medium body. Banana and dark fruit. Light cocoa. Very smooth and pleasant. There’s something very German about this, which isn’t surprising -- just a dumb observation.

On tap at the Ayingers Wirtshaus in Munich. Color is dark orange with a creamy head. Aroma is yeasty, wheat malt, and a twist of something dank - in the direction of moldy basement. Taste is bread, banana, apple, and spice. Body is medium to full. Finish is crisp and a touch sweet. Good stuff.
