3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl bottle, shared by pivnizub, with greetings to Jonas !) Cloudy, orange colour with a fluffy, persistent, slightly off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet malty, wheaty and chalky aroma with light fruity notes (citrus, banana) and restrained clovy notes. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a velvety mouthfeel. Wheat-malty, moderately fruity (banana) taste; medium-sweet, slightly clove-spicy finish with a well-integrated, warming alcoholic and refreshing slightly sour-fruity (citrus) notes. Pleasant and balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Hazy dark orange colour, small white head. Wheat and fruits in aroma. Wheat, yeast and fruits in flavour. Hides the alcohol well, though it gives the beer a slightly "warmer" touch than normal weizens do.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@Amsterdam, Helsinki, 7.1% ABV) Opaque yellow-orange color with a smallish, creamy head. Very fruity, but not very bananaish, slightly sweet aroma. Extremely fruity, lightly yeasty flavor with warming, but not intrusive alcohol. Not very complex, but balanced. Medium-bodied, balanced palate with soft carbonation. Well-hidden ABV, refreshing and not too sweet. A very enojyable, balanced and full enough weizenbock. The alcohol feels warming and adds to the enjoyment, instead of ruining it. Well done!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow colored, strongly hazy appearance. Medium sized lasting white head. Strong banana in aroma with mild alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is dominated by strong banana and sweetness, aftertaste has mild alcohol notes and wheat comes up. Medium carbonation. Too sweet for my taste, still quite refreshing weizen.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy hefeweizen -outlook: orange, creamy white head. Strong sweet banana aroma. Flavor also has lots of wheat: banana esters, sweetness - even sticky sugary sweetness. Finish is crisp and lemony. Very "normal" hefeweizen to be a bpck, just thicker and sweeter. Extremely drinkable as Ayinger always.
