3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a hazy orange-golden body leaving a small off-white head. There’s a touch of alcohol in the aroma, but most of all there’s sweetness, caramel and banana. Also some cloves. It has a sweet flavor with banana, some citrus and cloves and a nice bitterness. Sure on the fruity and sweet side. Medium to full body, effervescent, with a nice warming feeling. Sweetness, banana, cloves and bitterness in the finish. A lovely beer, well suited for an hour by the fire. (080829)

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass like a normal hefeweizen. Yeasty and fruity aroma. Tastes modest fruity, strong yeasty without being too dry. Another great brew from Ayinger!

in the bottle thanks to hurrisnow. pours an opaque candlewax gold with a huge head. big ester aroma. overripe bananas and cloves. this tastes like banana pudding. there’s an incredible thickness to this beer. the mouth is just perfect. it has a cake of esters with a mildly drying finish. the sweetness is ripe banana sweet. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted quite like this in beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Loads of esters in the aroma - bananas, cloves and perhaps apricot.
Not really that Bock-like. A bit on the dry side and rather light in colour, so its more like a weizen, just a little bit stronger.
