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.

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

0.5L on draft at Ayingerís Speis und Trank during 2007 Oktoberfest in Munich
When youíre tired of the tents and fairgrounds of Oktoberfest and want to sit and savor some of the greatest liquids on Godís 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 youíll 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 Ayingerís Celebrator for the doppelbock style. Damn fine.

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.

.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!

500ml bottle. Cloudy golden-tan color, lighter than I wouldíve 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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a weizen glass.
Appearance: From the pour I got a tall three to four finger head of slow fading stiff foam over a cloudy flat tan/orange colored liquid. Lots of visible carbonation flows up to the head which also makes lots of slick lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: The nose is full of estery, fruity and bready yeast notes.
Taste/Palate: The flavor has loads of tasty wheat character. There is a semi-sweet mix of bread malt, tart wheat and hops with a twist of lemon and green banana peel. The finish leans more to the dry side with a very mild hop presence. Its palate feels lively and well carbonated with a firm medium body.
Notes: This is a lovely showcase of deep wheaty flavor.

125h rating for this beer - my 19th Weizenbock and easily my favorite. Bottle. Ooooh baby! Bottle itself hasnít 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 thereís 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.
