Bottle courtesy of Chris & Dennis, thank you gentlemen. Hazy orange color with a fluffy white head that settles quickly to leave good lacing. Aroma of licorice, bubblegum and grapefruit. Flavor also has banana and decent malts. Great example of the style.

Pours cloudy tan with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very nice and balanced with sweet malt, cinnamon, gingerbread, cloves, grass, hay, wheat, caramel, and banana is nicely in the background. Tastes follows suit with Sweet bread dough malt, sweet potato, caramel, cloves, grass, ginger, and plenty of pungent (rather than fruity) yeast qualities. Finishes earthy and gentle, like a sweet sourdough bread. Not heavy, but not light, high carbonation without being irritating, and effortless to drink. As big and well-made as Aventinus, but with a lighter colored beer. Hell yes!!

Ayinger does an incredible job with this aromatic, sweet, bock. I agree with the last reviewer that it seems more weizen than bock but itís a wonderful winter ale that is smooth and doesntí show itís 7% strength. Excellent brew!

CJfromPhilly (139) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Pours from the 16.9 oz. bottle a cloudy, hazy yellow with a giant 2 1/2 finger head that stays for quite a while. Very active carbonation...tons and tons of bubbles rising in the murky haze. Aroma is of banana , lemon, and perhaps a little orange, with a hint of spice (coriander?) as well. 1st sip is an amazingly delicious blend of the banana and citrus, with a soft, sweet, almost candy-like undertone. The classic wheat malt crispness shines through. Mouthfeel is soft and full with a nice sparkle from the carbonation. Drinkability is almost TOO good for a beer with that packs a 7.1% abv punch. These would be such a treat on a hot summer day, although it hits the spot here in January, too. Overall, a very tasty and satisfying beer! Iíll be picking up more of this soon and letting some age for summertime!

Not really groundbreaking among weizenbocks but still a great German beer in its own right with that just right funky yeast flavor.

16.9 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy cantaloupe hue with a large off-white pillowy head with great retention. Aroma is nice and clovey, banana-ey (yeah, I said banana-ey). Taste is sweet and spicy; refreshing. Highly carbonated with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice weizen bock, a style thatís fast becoming one of my favorites.

falco242 (325) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2014 Delicious wheat aroma and full wheat flavor with citrus notes. Great aftertaste that leaves you wanting. Not dark for a bock but gives a nice full sweet caramel taste and is a great transition beer from winter to spring.

Idiosynkrasie (4824) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2012
330ml bottle. Hazy almost glowing yellow to orange with small creamy white head. Intense fruit aroma, apple, banana, a dry note, pepper and other spices. Taste has lots of fruit, apple, pear, banana, a hot spicy finish. Full body, soft and creamy. Top!

500ml bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a couldy brownish-orange with a one finger fluffy white head. Great head retention but really no lacing at all. Aroma is the usual banana and spice notes but there is an extra touch of citrus in there that I was not expecting. A touch of caramel in the nose helps mix things up a bit. The flavor has strong bubblegum and banana notes with some caramel lingering underneath. There are more subtle hints of spices in the way of coriander and some orange peel but i believe it is from the yeast. Alcohol is completely hidden and other than a fuller mouthfeel, there is no way to tell that this is stronger than a typical hefe. Overall, I really love this beer! There is a real richness from the aroma and flavor along with very well-hidden alcohol. One to work into the regular rotation.
