4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with creamy, medium-sized head. Beer itself is hazy, slightly reddish yellow. Aroma is very sweet and fruity. Banas and plums are clearly present. Als some coriander and yeastiness and some alcoholic tones in the finish. Flavor is just sweet just enought but not overtly. There is also some sour yeast and a hint of sharp spiciness. Palate is well rounded, smooth and almost perfectly carbonated. Medium bodied. Alcohol is warming in the finish. Super easy to drink for such a strong beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 33cl bottle. Hazy opaque yellow, big foaming pale head. Banana ice-cream nose, spritzy wheat, little clove, very smooth, actually reminds me of Lammin sahti. Sweeeet wheaty flavor, banana, herbs, little creamy vanilla and alcohol. A tad too sugary sweet even. Almost full bodied, strong carbonation. Good, but not exceptional.

Very beautiful orange beer with big white head. Aroma is pleasant: Wheats, yeasts, bananas, some bitterness and even some lemon. Flavour is also nice and it is similar than aroma: wheat, yeast, some sweet banana, but not anymore bitterness. Quite full-bodied to drink and same time nicely slippery and smooth. Ayinger Weizen-Bock is great, more bootilicious than normal hefe that is still lightly wheatish and nice to drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow with a soapy white head. Strong, wheaty aroma with some banana. Mild flavor with almost more banana than wheat. Still it’s a very good, easily drinkable weizen.
