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.

I do see and taste the look and feel of a champagne with this beer. This was an excellent hefe with a lot of flavor, great carbonation and an abundant amount of sizzle. One of my favorites that I can drink for a long time.

Maverick34 (3184) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
Draft at Ayinger Speis & Trank. Pours cloudy palish yellow. Aroma is fruit and sugary, tastes is sweet w/some spice. Pretty good weiss though not my favorite Ayinger.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle Poured a cloudy golden body with nice size head that stayed. Aroma is of sweet citrus with a slight yeast lingering in there. Flavor was sweet with citrus tones and a yeasty aftertaste. Very good Hefe, very smooth and balanced.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2007
Smallish shiny white head. Hazy opaque orange body. Spicy citric banana aroma, somewhat tart, with faint milky rubbery notes. Very harmonic. Taste is citric fruity wheat. Lots of carbonation in the mouth. Dry, spicy grapefruit aftertaste. Very nice and clearly a well-made weizen. (0.5l bottle.)

garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2007
From a 500 ml bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" in Cincinnati, Ohio - This one pours a golden brew with a long lasting hite head of foam and a distinctly bananas-clove-straw aroma.Tastewise, YES, THIS IS THE REAL STUFF! A true German hefe, and a damn good one!

glennmastrange (2823) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2016 Bottle. Aroma has light notes of straw, moderate notes of grass and lemon (no I didn’t add any), barnyard for the yeast and a bright corriander overtone. The massive rocky head was pure white and fully lasting, and the excellent lacing reminded me of melting snow on a slate roof. the golden color added to the spring-time feeling of this beer. Flavor was slightly tart with a bitter finish. It has a medium body with a creamy texture, lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass, cloudy golden with a big white head. Aroma was of yeast, cloves and banana. The taste was subtle with hints of cloves, citrus and banana and a bready nose. This is a well done wheat beer along the lines of Weihenstephaner. I still prefer the heavier clove taste of Paulaner, but if that is not your thing this is a very fine beer.
