Hazy orange color with a large frothy off-white head. Sweet banana and malt aroma. Sweet banana flavor with a wheat edge. Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 2, 2006
.5L bottle. Poured a tannish/brown color with a large head and lots of carbonation up the sides. This was a little lighter in color than I was expecting for a dunkel though. Aroma was weak, but had hints of some spice and some fruity esters. Flavor was also rather weak. Mainly yeast and cloves, but there was something offensive about it that I just couldnt put my finger on. I may pick up another bottle of this if I see it again, because I’m guessing that the bottle I was drinking wasn’t anywhere near being fresh. TheLeadDog (101) - Kent, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Poured with a cloudy with a huge head that took a long time to go down. Flavors to me of bubblegum and spice. Nice malt and hops back up a slight sweetness. A good beer with steak. rayg1 (597) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Pours a murky orange with a rediculously huge head, perhaps i was to eager and poured too quickly. In fact so huge i had to let this one settle. Aroma is of fruit and spice that i could not put my finger on. Then I nailed it after the first sip bananas spice and citrius all come out in one very interesting and easy drinking. This was my first Ayinger beer and I’m excited to get my hands on more. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2006
500 ml bottle - Pours a cloudy amber with a thin head and a very good aroma of yeast and citrus. The flavor matches the aroma with moderate malt sweetness as well. Unfortunately the body is too thin. I found watery. Definitely let this one warm up some. It was much too bland and watery right out of the fridge, but was notably improved later on. The beer goes down easy and doesn’t linger. It’s fairly good, but thus far I prefer the other three Ayinger beers that I’ve tried.

Pours a murky brownish with orange hue. Nice fluffy head which dies down. Has a roasty, sweet malt scent with yeast. Flavor is crisp suggestions of citrus and yeast as well as a pleasant roastiness. The roasted grains excentuate the flavor of the weizen beer, yet it is still incredibly drinkable. Tingles the palate. porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 20, 2006
(500 ml bottle from <!-- A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/portland/ target=blank -->Downeast Beverage Co.<!-- /A -->) Cloudy light grayish amber with very tall soft off-white head that pulls away pretty quickly. Aroma of grapefruit, banana and wheat malt. Mouthfeel pretty soft, kind of tingly esp. in finish. Flavor is a citrusy tang blended with wheat maltiness, some banana as well. A little citrusy bite at end. cowboy7096 (64) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2006
