This is probably my favorite beer. It packs a lot of flavor and goes well with any non spicy dish. It comes at a price though as each bottle with burn you for 5 bucks. caribou43 (1029) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - MAR 28, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 C’est une de mes bières favorites. Elle a un petit goût de banane qui n’est pas écoeurant. Je trouve que la sensation en bouche est grandiose. De plus, on peut la boire tranquillement à Münich au restaurant Ayinger, plus au moins en face de la HB. On ressent le froment et elle a un goût fruité et crémeuse. Elle a une texture jaune-or et troublée. Elle est dans l’ensemble bien équilibrée, douce. duroni2 (5) - - JUN 24, 2015 does not count
This is good enough to pull me away from Erdinger, not to mention Hacker and Paulaner. Summer could be as hazy as the color of this beauty. mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2007
0.5L on draft at Ayinger’s Speis und Trank during 2007 Oktoberfest in Munich
When you’re tired of the tents and fairgrounds of Oktoberfest and want to sit and savor some of the greatest liquids on God’s green Earth, walk through the Marienplatz and head to Speis und Trank. This beer was 0.5L of heaven in a glass. Truly a memorable dark wheat offering from one of the best brewers you’ll find (in my humble opinion, obviously). Wonderful clove aromas augment a beautiful malt flavor that just seduces the front of your taste buds. I believe that this beer went into a wooden barrel less than 24 hours before I drank it. The freshness was that apparent. This is a near-perfect brew, one that did not disappoint my lofty expectations for Ayinger. On par for this style in quality as is Ayinger’s Celebrator for the doppelbock style. Damn fine. iamqueensblvd (247) - , Iowa, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Great spicy banana bread nose with a good frothy white head. Pale dark yellow/light orange pour. Very crisp and clean. banana taste immediately with a nice bread flavored finish lingering on the palate.

Great bananas, clove, bubblegum and rich and buttery finish - its almost creamy it is so smooth. Weather this is your style or not, you can’t complain about how well it just absolutely nails it. Cristobal37 (1143) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 3, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Beautiful hazy orange with tons of bubbles flying up. Floral spicy aroma. Light creamy mouthfeel. Silky wheat and a faint spiciness plus classic banana. It goes down crazy smooth considering it?s more than 7%, but all in all it?s not very bold. Aside from the alcohol content the only "bock" thing about it is its slightly sugary sweetness. Otherwise it?s a nice weizen higher in alcohol. Kickass. cattaneopapa (392) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
500ml bottle from LCBO. 8,5% alc/vol. Pours a hazy deep golden colour with one finger of lasting white head. Aroma of yeast, peaches. Complex taste with fruity notes, banana, yeast, and has a rich full- bodies sweet malty finish. Creamy palate. Lively carbonation. High alcohol content is concealed well. mcg80 (5) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2010 does not count
I really love that taste of this beer, it has everything that is great about a hefeweizen with a hint of tartness in the aroma and taste to give it a unique character. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Mmmmm...I am really looking forward to saying something about this beer. Mmmmm...sigh, here goes.
I poured this into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a nice light hazy golden yellow to medium orange color, a perfect cloudiness all the way through. There was a nice two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and a half. There was a nice amount of semi - thick lacing trying to stick to the sides of the glass but they slide for the most part.
The smell, hmmm...where do I start. Sigh, uh...just a pretty much close to perfect banana/yeasty breadiness with just a tad of slight clove and I think even just a nice little vanilla as well.
The taste was once again extremely emphasized by all of the previously mentioned flavors and allowing a super nice sweet sticky blend to allocate itself onto the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation seems to be appropriately styled and lends a hand to letting a nice creaminess to run along my mouth and tongue.
Overall, hot damn! Where in the hell did this come from. Not only is this a stellar beer for it’s style but it’s also a stand out to me. I can’t wait to have this again.
