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.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2007
On draught, 7/2/07. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a decent fair lasting head. Previous kegs have always been a little more yellow with less cloudiness, not that I’m complaining. Nice citrus/clove aroma, nothing out of the ordinary. Flavor seems to be a little heavier on the banana than I remember. Either we’ve been getting older kegs up til this one or there has been a slight recipe/purveyor change at Ayinger. Again, not that I’m complaining, just noticing some subtle changes from the last keg to this one.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours opaque orange gold with white head. The aroma is mild banana, assertive yeastiness, faint orange zest, and some clove. The flavor is zest, white bread, light banana, and clove esters. Some spicy and herbal hops add a refreshing crispness. Zesty and tingly finish with soft malty aftertaste. I was craving a good German Hefe to counter the intense Tennessee summer, and this hit the spot.

rocbyter (2184) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Sampled at the 2nd anual Litchfield brew fest. Light apperance. Creamy wheat taste with a chewy palate.

Boutip (6628) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Plucier: Poured a cloudy and hazy yellow/whitish color ale with a bit foamy head with great retention and some dark lees at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma of pure wheat with some nice ester and floral notes. Taste is dominated by refreshing wheat notes with some medium banana and ester notes also noticeable. Nice body with some low filtration and adequate carbonation and a creamy texture. Very well done overall and quite enjoyable with the warm weather.

A wonderful wheat beer. I especially enjoy this beer after going to the brewery in Aying and seeing their facility. Nothing to complain about with this one.

tangentrider (144) - Alabama, USA - JUN 14, 2007
hazy golden-orange beer with one inch of white foam, banana aroma, spicy and yeasty with some fruit

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Scents of banana and wheat. A crisp, citrus? tingle lingers throughout the finish. A lighter bodied offering which proves to be a refreshing example of a German wheat beer.

ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Sampled at a friends, this is nothing to write home about. Pours gold with light disapating head. Bananas on the mouthfeel

peridot (17) - Alabama, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Very pleasant wheaty aroma with banana and lemon notes. It pours a cloudy straw colour with a decent white head. There’s a noticeable coriander flavour that makes me think of a wit, but the overal flavour doesn’t carry through what the aroma promises. Very smooth on the palate with medium carbonation.
