The color was an amber-orange. The head was full, creamy and extremely fluffly. The aroma had a sweet wheat smell. The flavor had hints of citris, srong wheat taste, with a bite to it. The palate was carbonated, and strong yeast. The finish was waxy with slight spice. emacgee (4698) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Pours a hazy amber, has some wonderful carbonation. The head is profuse, creamy white, and has a very velvety texture. The aroma was sweet, had some coriander, nutmeg, and lemongrass. The flavor tasted sour, citric, alcohol and a little bite. The palate was crisp with a slight bite and the finish was sharp and warm. thornecb (5995) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Pours a cloudy dark brown into a Weizen glass. Significant head recedes and leaves no lacing. Banana and clove notes. Apple and banana with a lasting clove finish. Tranquillity (2464) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2006
Brown banana colour, thick white head which lasts. Aroma of banana, butter and champagne. Taste of nuts, butter and cloves. Quite good. jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Pours cloudy, deep, brownish gold with a thick off-white head (that dissipates to a ~1/4 inch foam that lasts the duration of the drink). The aroma is very heavy with wheat. There is also some bready yeast, some sweet malts and honey, and traces of lemon or sweet orange zest and banana. The beer is yeasty and wheaty and very zippy with carbonation at first. It then reveals some fruit and malts - while maintaining a lot of bubbly zing tickling the surface of the tongue. The finish has more soft fruit, lots of wheat, some yeast, and some subtle hop bitterness. The finish is somewhat dry, wheaty, and yeasty, with a delicate touch of bitterness. Overall, the flavor seems disappointingly watery and has a peculiar funk that is hard to describe - it seems a clash between the darker, chewier flavors from roasted grains combined with the fruity weizen yeast flavors. It is interesting and not bad - but a letdown compared to other delicious beers from Ayinger that I’ve had...

Bottle. Hazy caramel color with a big beige head. Yeaty, wheat aroma. Caramel, yeast, wheat flavor. Lingering yeast and wheat. Medium bodied. MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 22, 2006
(bottle, traded with joss - thanks!) Cloudy, slightly murky orange hue with a huge, persistent light-beige foamy head. Dusty, moderately sweet and slightly sour-fruity aroma with light toasty notes and clovy spice. Sweet, slightly viscid initial wheat-malty taste, slightly toasted, banana-fruity; medium bodied with a pleasant carbonation; well-balanced, malty and moderately fruity finish with cinnamon and clovy spice. Aromatic and rounded Hefeweizen. Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Bottle. A hazy/cloudy pale to medium amber beer, with a large, frothy, fully lasting off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, hint of toasted nuts), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement), with notes of banana, cloves, hints of green apple and bubblegum. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, half-length finish, with light bitterness. It has some really nice aspects (fruity and powerful aroma, large and persistent head), its major deficiencies are in the mouthfeel department. Overall more than palatable.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2008 Aroma of banana, bubble gum, sour cherries. Color is between tan and dark tan - almost like dirty water. Thought it might be slightly darker for a dunkelweisse. The white head dissipated quickly. No lacing. Flavor is sweet with vanila, sugars, fruit - sweet to slightly sour. Apple to cherry. Smooth beer with a dry finish. cheap (5965) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 OK, I’ve been waiting for this for a while, cause I had to save up to purchase it. Got it today at 3 Sons, Wexford. Upon opening, the aroma’s clean and not too detectable but does have a hint of yest in the background. In my poor steeler stein, it pours almost like American wheat but more sophisticated. Beautifully delicious creamy taste with no insulting tones what so ever. Finish is just great! Perhaps the perfect beer except for the price.
