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.

Nice rich yeasty banana flavors, with hints of baking spices. Yet another superb brew from Ayinger.

This beer was smooth, tasty and went well with my steak. loved that it was easy to pronounce a German beer for once. Would want to see this beer more.

This beer is everything a Hefeweizen should be. Pours a hazy pale gold. Aroma is incredibly fruity, spicy, pleasing. Flavor is similar, balanced with lots of fruit, citrus, wheat and spice. Very smooth, easy drinking. My favorite in the style.

On Tap at Drafting Room (Exton, PA) Served in a pint glass. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Beautiful Hefe aroma with the expected banana, clove and wheat. Very crisp. Refreshing yeast and citrus balanced out with a bit of clove. Has always been one of my favorite hefes.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a large bubbly white head. Aroma of banana, clove, hintos of citrus, bready, grainy malts...overall a great Hefe aroma. Flavor of Hefe yeast with clove spiciness up front, citrus and banana along with it. Crisp, carbonated yet not thin like some in the style. One of the best I have had.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2007
cloudy hazy staw color, with a good two inches of pure white creamy foam. Slight lacing after the head dies back to a quarter inch or less. Good banana in the aroma. Nice sweetness and some tart lemon in the upfront flavor. Then the lemon fades completely and the sweetness turns to wheat and breadiness. Some underlying clove. A bit of spicy hops right at the end of the flavor. It finishes thin and a bit watery

mansquito (6320) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
I don’t know if I was drinking the same beer as all of you, because this beer simply failed to impress me at all. It looks great, with a nice, big, long-lasting head and a cloudy light honey colour. But alas, I found the taste watery. It simply didn’t have as much flavour as other wheat beers that I had. What I did taste was all the good stuff, but not quite enough of it.

3.6
jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Pours beautiful golden with small off-white head that lasts. Nose is creamy and citrus. In the flavor I get candied pear/apple, tangerine, and milky caramel, well balanced. I detected a LOT of ETOH in the middle to the end. Aftertaste is mildly bitter and flavorful. Good.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow with a good sized head. Fine carbonation with a fruity and yeasty aroma. Banana and some citrus in the taste. Slightly sour aftertaste. Nicely balanced. One of the best hefeweizens I’ve had.
