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.

Bottle, 330mL: Pours hazy yellow, weak white head. Aroma of citrus, wheat, and yeast. Very satisfying sour/sweet flavor with just the right refreshing mouthfeel. An excellent wheat. Marvelous.

This was my second experience with Ayinger, and I am rapidly becoming a fan! Wheaty and sweet, with a very smooth finish. I found this to be a very refreshing Hefeweisen, and I am certain to pick it up again.

This is the best Hefeweizen I’ve had. Very well put together. Solid citrus notes that aren’t overpowering. Not watered down, either. As stated in the description, ’it is a benchmark for this style of beer’. That says it all.

Cloudy straw color. Very creamy and thick white foam. Smells of cloves and bananas. The taste is sweet and "wheat-ey" lol. Good beer.

This is a new favorite of mine. The perfect balance of bitter and sweet. Very smooth and easy to drink, yet a complex palate of bananas and malted wheat with a dry finish. This has become my favorite hefe-weizen.

Bottle. Cloudy lemon color with a nice big white head. Aroma is full of wheat and yeast, hints of lemon as well. Flavor is wheat, lemon, vanilla, and yeast. A pretty decent beer.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bottle. A hazy medium blonde beer. with a huge, frothy, fully lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of banana, pear, bubblegum, lemon, hint of spices. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, average lenght finish with light to moderate bitterness. I firstly had this one in Aying back in 2006, and since then it’s always been consistent. Excellent aroma, very fruity and a bit spicy (but somehow more peppery than clovey this time). Really enjoyable.

The commercial description is generally accurate (although the champagne comparison is a tad ambitious). A very pleasant lightweight wheat beer with a distinct lemony finish. 500 ML bottle acquired at Milwaukee’s Discount Liquor for $2.69.
