Bottle. Pour was dark golden with a frothy head. Aroma was of wheat, some sweet malt, Light orange, Clove, and slight banana. Body was medium to light with well blended flavors making this a real easy beer to drink. You canít really go wrong very often with Ayinger.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky yellow-orange-brown body, the color of dehydrated urine with protein and blood. Thin, recharging off-white head. Tangy, estery, dusty nose, with hay, lemon, clove, and banana. Sharp, tangy body, with wet hay, lemon, banana, pear and apple juice, and clove, estery and almost sour, with a dusty, spicy, earthy finish. Too much mineraly yeast (this does not pertain as much to the aroma), but still quite good.

Bottle from Samís in Durham. I love the goat. Pours dark murkey golden with huge soft white head. Much lighter than expected. Nose of bananas and wheat and esters and sweet caramel. Fairly grainy. Similar taste, though a tad metallic. Still quite good. A bit over-carbonated.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 3/12/2010. This weizen bock pours a slightly hazy orange gold color from a 50cl bottle. Large sized quickly diminishing white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty and fruity, slightly sweet. A medium bodied weizen bock. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. Some banana and clove a hint of orange, The hops are slightly spicy. Very soft and full carbonation. Hides the alcohol well. Very nice beer. Iím not sure if itís the hat or the beer the goat is holding in his hoof, but a very cool label. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden/orange, fluffy/billowy head, fades to film. Aroma is dominated by yeasty dough and clove, hints of banana. Banana shows up much more in the flavor, creates a nice balance with the spicy clove, still very doughy. Mouthfeel is near perfect, carbonation falls apart a tad, still gets a five though. Canít believe this is 7%. Very nice overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Spicy, sweet, malty aroma, featuring copious amounts of clove and banana esters along with lighter degrees of citrus, dough, wheat grain and caramel. Cloudy medium-dark golden color, head is fine and lasting. Flavor profile is a pleasant combination of honeyish, sugary malt sweetness, lemon peel, clove and bubblegum with a mildly tart, gently bitter and spicy undercurrent. Finish sees a touch of dryness creeping in to help offset the abundantly sweet malts. Highly effervescence, almost fizzy palate, the tartness lending a nicely refreshing quality. Body is medium. An enjoyable rendition.
