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.

From Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with long lasting head. You really can smell the banana and floral aroma in this one. The banana flavor is real evident as well. Body was medium thick just the way I like it. Not my favorite but never the less damn good.

Hazy yellow, good head that lasts. Flavor is pretty good, fruity, banana, clove, all the expected stuff, little bit of yeast. Has a real nice texture to the mouthfeel. Kind of refreshing. Really good brew that I’ll have again.

Bottle pours cloudy golden with a nice white head that stays pretty well. Good aroma of bannana, clove, and a touch of lemon. Flavor is yeast, bannana, clove, a little lemon and maybe some bubblegum there too. Palate is light airy and quite drinkable. Good, crisp and refreshing.. Nice Hefe here..

Bottle. I’m not normally a wheat beer lover, but this is really good. Cloudy yellow body with a big white head of small bubbles. Aroma is light, and lemony with a bit of other fruit (peach?). Flavor is light, but complex with lemon, banana, and spice. Best hefeweizen I’ve had.

Lemon, banana, bubble gum, clovers, and dough. Very light hops. Refreshing. One of the best wheat beers I’ve had.

draft - Pours orangish-yellow with a moderate head. This beer smells great with lots of citrus and banana aromas. The flavor is of yeast and banana most prominently and a mild spicy note. It’s got a smooth feel with a medium body. The finish is clean and refreshing. This might be my favorite hefeweizen thus far.

I was over at a local liquor store and they were selling pints of this Ayinger for $1 a piece. I must say, Im very impressed with this weisse. Very aromatic, smells of banana and spice. Flavorful; tastes of banana, clove, bubble gum, yeast. Finishes fairly clean and leaves me wanting another gulp! I’m going to have to get more of this stuff. Bravo, Ayinger!

MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2006
(bottle) Cloudy orange colour with a huge, slowly lacing foamy white head. Clean and balanced yeasty banana-fruitiness, wheat character and clovy notes. Moderately sweet flavour, well-bodied with a sparkling carbonation. Wheaty and fruity (banana, citrus) taste; fruity and moderately clove-spicy finish. A fine and not too heavy, well-rounded Hefeweizen with session qualities.

Tap at the Acadia Cafe. This tastes so much like Sprite to me it’s almost silly. Quite an enjoyable wheat, though - flavors of lemon, more light fruits, etc. Maybe i’ll compare that taste more to "champagne." That’s a bit more palatable i suppose.
