500mL bottle. Pours a very cloudy orange, highy carbonated, white foamy head. Huge aroma of clove and banana, lots of wheat malt. Very sweet flavor, rich wheat, clove, and a bit of banana puree. Heavy bodied, rich and flavorful. Overall, it finishes with a forward charge of bold hefeweizen character. Lots of hefe... its and Imperial German Hefe. Awesome and rich.

Bottle from Bottle Barn. Pours hazy orange gold with a foamy, 4-finger white head. Very nice banana aroma, backed by a little clove. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is wheat, followed by clove, and then banana, finishing different banana impact. Really good stuff. It’s very tasty. Banana in the long haul.

500ml bottle. Cloudy golden-tan color, lighter than I would’ve expected. Big foamy off-white head. Some wheat and banana is the aroma. The mouthfeel of this beer is awesome. Smooth, sweet malt tones. Well-defined hefe-yeast banana-clove flavor. Creamy and thick, with some light pungency underneath. Wow, this beer is excellent. World class German beer.

Wow a delicious weizenbock by a brewery I would expect it from. Aroma was big and full. Very thick banana aroma witha hint of clove and some yeast. Pour was a nice murky orange with a one finger white head. Taste was full of flavor...strong banana and clove with a nice yeasty character. Thick mouthfeel and strong carbonation. Man, if you like German beers you can’t go wrong with Ayinger.

Poured the same color as a regular Hefe with a frothy head. Good added malt flavours and a ton of yummy yeast at the bottom of the bottle.

Pretty solid Weizen bock. Aroma is loaded with bananas, vanilla and clove. Flavor is similar, with some hints of citrus and yeast. Alcohol is warming with a smooth mouthfeel. The vanilla was a good addition.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium size head that recedes quickly. Aroma of clove, banana, wheat, bread. Mouthfeel is more carbonated than I would have guessed. Reminds me more of a strong hefeweizen than a weizen bock.
