COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Delicious lemon and vanilla scented wheat beer with yeast. This is an aristocratic beer with a champagne sparkle and a beautifully sustained head. With the pale color of mountain honey and tart refreshing palate, it is a "brut" beer with the delicious, complex fruitiness of extra-dry champagne. Bottle conditioned and top fermented, it is a benchmark for this style of beer. The nose is fruity-spicy, herbaceous with lots of flowers, and fruit. With such a creamy head, you can build miniature mountains that resemble the Alps. Pour slowly, fill the special weissbier glass half full and swirl the bottle on the table to put the yeast in suspension.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.1%) but there is no freshness date. Appearance: The body has an orange/yellow color with a cloudy haze and some visible carbonation. On top I got a thick and creamy off white head. It is long lasting and makes slick lace ring which slowly slide down the sides of the glass. Smell: The aroma has notes of sweet bubble gum and banana peel with just a light touch of wheat malt. Taste/Palate: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma foreshadowed. Tangy wheat meets the tongue first with a light clove banana yeast notes following. A touch of citrus and spicy/leafy hops leads into the finish which is crisp and fairly dry. The firm medium body has plenty of active carbonation give it a lively snappy texture. Notes: I love the texture and finish on this beer. Some German Hefeweizen beers get a little to slick on the palate but this one is crisp and feels alive with carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding Hefeweizen.

RW80 (979) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Appearance: Yellow to orang cloudy with a big white fluffy head, leaving generous amount of lacing. Aroma: Lemon, wheat, banana and some sweet clove and yeast. Taste: moderate seeet with a mild bitterness with tastes like the aroma. Good carbonation,medium body. The trick is refinement here, typical German Weizen. Good Quality but a bit too German coloring between the lines.

Many thanks for this bottle to kevnic2008. Dobre smaczne i tresciwe pszeniczne piwo. Sporo osadu, w smaku bananowej nuty, nieco pszennego swiezego pieczywa. Piana spora trwala, Zapach intensywny. Kolor jaskrawo zoltawy ze sporym zmetnieniem.

villevav (263) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Ayinger Bräu-Weisse on vaaleaa suodattamatonta vehnäolutta ja väriltään vaalean kultaista ja sameaa. Hiivaisessa tuoksussa on hiivan lisäksi myös mietoa banaania ja aavistus vanijaista tuoksua. Suutuntumaltaan Bräu-Weisse on raikkaan hiilihappoinen, ja virkistävä hieman limonadimaisella tavalla. Maussa on hedelmäisyyttä, joka tuo ensimmäisenä mieleen sitruunan, sekä yleensä belgialaisille vehnäoluille tyypillistä mietoa mausteisuutta. Hedelmäinen jälkimaku on lyhyt ja miellyttävä. Bräu-Weisse on hiilihappoisena ja virkistävänä oluena mitä oivallisin patio-olut. Oman tyylinsä ehdotonta kärkeä.

pantumnuss (48) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Yellow hazy color with a nice white head. Full of bananas and fresh honey and citrus aromas. High carbonation. This is the way how a real german hefeweizen must taste. After heating you can smell out some gingerbread flavors combined with alcohol.
