UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 Beautiful cloudy orange with a huge foamy off-white head. Spicy nose and fruity taste ... pretty much what I expected from this wheat beer after I saw the color. And it looked just the way it was supposed to. Mouth was a little thin, but then this is pretty low alcohol stuff and packing great taste. // rerated 9 May 2005 at this beer is nolhing to celebrate. Not enough of anything ... mouth, nose, complexity. A pretty straight forward, pretty simple wheat, without much spice or sweetness or any of the things that make a wheat special. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Cloudy orange with floating yeast and a foamy white head. Smells like spices and cloves, very pleasant. Tastes: malt, banana, clove, spices. The malt is great in this offering. Another rock solid from Ayinger. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Poured hazy amber orange...not what I expected...smelled malty, clove, banana...tasted very malty and thick...finished spicy...a great beer but not what I expected of a dunkel... booyaatribe (450) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Nice. A bold wheaty brew that is also quite refreshing. A great brewery that really knows how to do its wheat beers. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Bottle. Cloudy yellowish in color with a nice fluffy white head. Banana and clove. Malty. Spicey. Even carbonation. Enjoyable.

Fruity, lemony, banana, and spicey nose; underwhelming flavor with not much charactor; some banana, pear, clove, and bread notes. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2004
A brew that really doesn’t look too much like a dunkelweizen (has more of an orange/amber color to it), and it lacks that caramel flavors, but it is still a good wheat beer. This one is a bit on the sweet side, with some banana and pear flavors to it, and a little bit of spiciness. Very easy to drink, and overall quite enjoyable.

1/2 l bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, nice white head. Not as dark as one would want or expect. Malty aroma, clove and a touch of banana. Smooth malty flavor, clove and banana. Nice even carbonation. Well made brew, not quite a dunkelweizen, but a decent weizen none-the-less. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Pours amber-gold, cloudy, with an off-white diminishing head. Scent of apple, yeast, apricot, and an odd plant flavor. Taste is the same with the addition of yeast and wheat that comes through better as the beer warms. Oily mouthfeel, not unpleasant, that ends with the strange plant aftertaste. Good beer but the sum is less than the parts. y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - JUL 13, 2004
aroma strong but not attracting. smells of bitter amber, sap and musty boots. flavor is slightly sweet. rich silky mouthfeel. sampled on tap at ayinger speis & trank in munchen.
