Classic banana and clove nose, with a bit of lemon and sour milk, which may be attributed more to a dirty glass than the beer. Cloudy golden, thick firm lasting head, abundant streams of carbonation, some lacing. Flavor is of fresh underripe bananas. My experience with weizen beers is that they tend to taste more like overripe bananas, which makes this a little unusual. Not nearly as much clove on the palate as on the nose. Mouthfeel is harsh with too much carbonation. Alcohol is completely imperceptible. Tasty and somewhat unique, but not exceptional.

Bottled. Lots of banana and yeast in the aroma. Beautiful hazy orange colour. Taste is quite sweet full of yeasty banana. Nice full body and soft mouthfeel. ABV does itís job here but stays hidden. A good, very well balanced, strong weizen.

mbgrayson (622) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Pours a cloudy orangish color, with a white head. Pleasant enough to drink, notes of several types of unidentifiable fruit. Not my style, but it is still not too bad. However, I will go for something else next time.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2010
At first glimpse, this appears lighter than the typical Weizenbock. This brew is light peach in color and poured an overly luxurious cream head that filled 2/3 the glass. The invigorating presence of yeast and wheat swell the bouquet that has a complex medley of restrained phenols, including clove, banana, vanilla, and touches of uric acid. On the palate, this demonstrates a full bodied 1-2 of wheatiness and yeastiness with the complex presence of phenols again demonstrating moderations. Zesty flavors with mild clove and banana that increases at the sweet yeasty malt finish. Well balanced, full-bodied weizenbock, that is definitely strong, but artfully crafted.

Bottle - Why have I not tried more Ayinger? Every time I drink their beer, Iím blown away! This one pours a hazy yellow with a big, white head. Smells just like Dubble Bubble, with wheat and light spice. Yum. The taste is smooth, with lemony wheat, sweet but not overpowering. Itís real velvety in the mouth, with silky bubbles and a nice medium body.

Slipstream (2229) - USA - JAN 23, 2010
A rich, sweet, wheaty bock flavor. I tasted apple, prune, grape, and floral tones. Another very good brew from Ayinger! Now why cant big American brewers be as good? Maybe it is that old reihensgebot (or whatever).

Hazy peach pour with a vivacious white froth that lingers quite nice. The aroma is simply flabbergasting: massive banana, clove, spice, fruity dough (angelfood cake), toast, biscuit, and caramel. The flavor is spot on- massively bready with huge notes of lemon-orange citrus, nectar fruits, banana, clove, and a pleasant dry smacking characteristic which is presumably from the abv. The palate is medium bodied with the perfect effervescence- pillowy and caressing. The finish is semi dry, and wholly clean.

Hazy peach colored pour with a nice two finger white frothy head. Aroma is pretty excellent; banana, clove, dough, cinnamon, nutmeg, and angel food cake are all fully and boldly represented. Flavor absolutely hits the spot, particularly after a good workout. Great bread and grain character, not in the bad way that those traits are often -- tastes like a beautifully homemade loaf. On top of that are beautiful citrus and tropical fruit notes, along with the aforementioned spices. Palate is full and flavorful, but still immensely drinkable -- Iím having trouble not just throwing this down my gullet. This is an awesome weizen bock, and one of the better German beers Iíve had. This and Celebrator are now my two favorites from Ayinger.

Bottle courtesy of Chris & Dennis, thank you gentlemen. Hazy orange color with a fluffy white head that settles quickly to leave good lacing. Aroma of licorice, bubblegum and grapefruit. Flavor also has banana and decent malts. Great example of the style.
