Mindenféle trópusi ízvilág rejtőzik ebben a palackban. Selymes, zamatos, fűszeres. Ha pókerezésnél fel akarsz vágni valamivel, a barátaid előtt, vigyél egy ilyet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Orange, hazy body, with medium, creamy, white head. Pleasant, creamy aroma of banana cake, vanilla, bubblegum, orange, citrus, bread, clove and other spices. Taste with the same aromas, with some more grass notes, greatly balanced between a creamy sweetness, fruit, spice and malt notes. ABV not noticable. Mouthfeel is full, creamy, with a strong, refreshing carbonation and it finishes spicy and fruity. Simply delicious! My favourite Weizen single bock, quaffable, with pleasant, greatly balanced aromas and the distinct smoothness, many Ayinger beers are offering!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, apricot color, massive pillowy white head with ridiculous retention and lacing. Nose is clove, white pepper, malt, banana, slight metallic. Mouth is kinda watery, mild sweetness up front, then the cloves, banana and yeasty spice kick in, it dries out a bit, cue the biscuits and rounds out with a slightly creamy lemon and bread dough finish. Decent.

Wow is this good. Nice wheat/bock base. But I’m getting Banana in spades -- and it works, and it’s wonderful. Slightly sweet. Incredibly good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is malty with a pleasant banana clove aroma with hints of vanilla. Cloudy orange appearance with a thick white head. Flavor is bready with clove and banana notes in balance. Hop flavor is absent. Mouthfeel is medium full with moderate carbonation. Overall, it's a well balanced weizenbock. The clove and banana aroma and flavor doesn't overpower the beer and is perfectly balanced with the malt. Easy drinking considering its high abv.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big banana, orange peel, pear, apple, bubblegum, white grape, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester and balanced malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big banana, orange peel, pear, apple, bubblegum, wheat, bread, light honey, light clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apple, orange peel, bubblegum, wheat, bread, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome weizenbock. All around great complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast ester and balanced malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
