poisoneddwarf (1676) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2011
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 that’s fast becoming one of my favorites.

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 (3587) - 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!

rangerred (891) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2013
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.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 25, 2008
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.

hirigalzkar (2229) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle. Golden color. Hazy. Nice white head. Nice aroma of wheat and fruit (orange). Add vanilla and spices to it. Tastes like an "imperial weissbier". Full bodied! Big taste! Hints of vanilla and lots of fruit makes it elegant. Bitterness from the alcohol appears in the aftertaste to complete this fantastic brew.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - NOV 10, 2009
500ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. Bottle conditioned. Poured a hazy gold with three fingers of white head. Lots of carbonation per style. Nice mix of clove and banana in the aroma. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Good and spicy with clove in the finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Very easy drinking for the ABV. Classic rendition of a Weizenbock.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2009
This beer is superb. Light banana and grain aroma. Rich mouthfeel, with a flavor that is rich yet ephemeral.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a very nice looking cloudy, dirty yellow with big white head. Aroma and flavor just loaded with wheat malt, banana, a little clove, orange and lemon grass, a little earthy. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, great shit!

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours a massive, frothy white head. Lasting. Unexpectedly light colored body - rich golden with abundant, pearly carbonation. Clear body becomes hazy with yeast. Aroma is big-time yeast, even from across the table. Vanilla and fruit (tropical) at first. Closer sniffs reveal big, bready wheat malt and tangy citrus zest from the yeast. Some requisite clove and a touch of bubble gum. Flavor has more of the big, rich wheat malt and some banana and spice. Light, warming alcohol. Less of the bubble gum, but bigger clove and hints of vanilla and cream. Medium body is smooth and creamy with lively carbonation. Big malt presence with just enough bitterness to balance and keep it from being overbearing. Alcohol comes through in the finish, but isn’t distracting. Lingering spice. Overall a super beer. The Ayinger doesn’t dethrone Aventinus for me, but it’s right up there.
