This is probably my favorite beer. It packs a lot of flavor and goes well with any non spicy dish. It comes at a price though as each bottle with burn you for 5 bucks.

0.5L on draft at Ayinger’s Speis und Trank during 2007 Oktoberfest in Munich
When you’re tired of the tents and fairgrounds of Oktoberfest and want to sit and savor some of the greatest liquids on God’s green Earth, walk through the Marienplatz and head to Speis und Trank. This beer was 0.5L of heaven in a glass. Truly a memorable dark wheat offering from one of the best brewers you’ll find (in my humble opinion, obviously). Wonderful clove aromas augment a beautiful malt flavor that just seduces the front of your taste buds. I believe that this beer went into a wooden barrel less than 24 hours before I drank it. The freshness was that apparent. This is a near-perfect brew, one that did not disappoint my lofty expectations for Ayinger. On par for this style in quality as is Ayinger’s Celebrator for the doppelbock style. Damn fine.

Great spicy banana bread nose with a good frothy white head. Pale dark yellow/light orange pour. Very crisp and clean. banana taste immediately with a nice bread flavored finish lingering on the palate.

Great bananas, clove, bubblegum and rich and buttery finish - its almost creamy it is so smooth. Weather this is your style or not, you can’t complain about how well it just absolutely nails it.

I really love that taste of this beer, it has everything that is great about a hefeweizen with a hint of tartness in the aroma and taste to give it a unique character.

Mmmmm...I am really looking forward to saying something about this beer. Mmmmm...sigh, here goes.
I poured this into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a nice light hazy golden yellow to medium orange color, a perfect cloudiness all the way through. There was a nice two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and a half. There was a nice amount of semi - thick lacing trying to stick to the sides of the glass but they slide for the most part.
The smell, hmmm...where do I start. Sigh, uh...just a pretty much close to perfect banana/yeasty breadiness with just a tad of slight clove and I think even just a nice little vanilla as well.
The taste was once again extremely emphasized by all of the previously mentioned flavors and allowing a super nice sweet sticky blend to allocate itself onto the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation seems to be appropriately styled and lends a hand to letting a nice creaminess to run along my mouth and tongue.
Overall, hot damn! Where in the hell did this come from. Not only is this a stellar beer for it’s style but it’s also a stand out to me. I can’t wait to have this again.

Amazing beer. Has strong Belgian qualities--mouthfeel and fruity essences. Very definitely on the sweet side without being cloying. Absolutely delicious.

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.

125h rating for this beer - my 19th Weizenbock and easily my favorite. Bottle. Ooooh baby! Bottle itself hasn’t even been recycled yet. Nose is super malty, dry though, light brown sugar and light cloves. Light golden body (surprisingly so) with visibly strong carbonation. Head is a pillow, soft and densely bubbled. Medium body, soft and smooth. Taste of medium bananas, heavy bubblegum, seemingly a little candy sugar, indistinct berry. Malt profile is gentle on the whole but there’s a frisk side lurking under the surface. Aftertaste is dry and pure honey-malty goodness. Vanilla, cream, light meringue, light lemon zest. Light and refreshing, no muddy or grainy malt, absolutely no sign of the strongish alcohol. A pleasure to drink, and an extremely promising offering for a style that was leaking hope. Manna, poetry, gift of the ancient eagle, stolen by Odin and given to man to reward his faith.

.5L bottle. May have been served a little too cold. Poured a rich yellow with fluffy, loose, head and excellent retention. Typical weizen aroma. Full-bodied and very smooth. Sweet crisp lager taste with smooth weizen notes: this tastes like an excellent helles and an excellent weizen combined. Almost too sweet for me, but not quite. Excellent!
