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. WABeerFiend (413) - - JAN 22, 2015
Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass on 01.14.15.
A: Banana, lemon, orange, and sweet clove.
A: 2 finger head that recedes to a thin fluff. The body is a hazy dark orange yeast cloud at the top, with a less hazy bottom of light orange.
T: Lemon and orange dominate. Banana, dark wheat bread, a (Noble?) hop edge on the back end, and sweet cloves are subtle.
P: Fluffy smooth. Medium mouthfeel.
O: This is incredibly balanced all around. It’s not the best weizenbock in my opinion, but it’s still excellent. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Amazing beer. Has strong Belgian qualities--mouthfeel and fruity essences. Very definitely on the sweet side without being cloying. Absolutely delicious. drpimento (3669) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
A tad pale for a weizenbock, but who cares. The flavor’s divine. Appearance has a colossal thick billowy cream colored head. Aroma’s traditional Bavarian hefeweizen with clove banana malt. Flavor’s like nose, plus with the bock a touch more sweet. Still enough tang to make it so drinkable. These guys have it together. MetalNHopHead (2014) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 15, 2016
If the grey, gloomy weather is any indicator, winter is already on the way. Thankfully there’s some cold-weather appropriate wheat beer from Ayinger to ease the transition into that season. This Weizen Bock pours cloudy gold with a pure white head. Grainy and mildly fruity aroma. Cereal grain, apple, and banana. Smooth, creamy feel and finish. For something straight out of Aying, this is about as authentic as you could hope for. Damn easy to drink, too.

Mindenféle trópusi ízvilág rejtőzik ebben a palackban. Selymes, zamatos, fűszeres. Ha pókerezésnél fel akarsz vágni valamivel, a barátaid előtt, vigyél egy ilyet. UrbanCaveman (193) - Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Standard bottle, poured into a weizen glass at ~40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a deep honey gold, so cloudy one can barely make out the shadows of their fingers on the other side of the glass, and forms a pale just-off-white head which dies away rather quickly. Lacing is fairly pedestrian.
Smell: Not unlike a wheat field near a mixed orchard of banana and pear trees bursting with ripeness, with bush-sized clumps of coriander and clove dotting the landscape.
Taste: Starting cold, this is heavy with coriander, intensely orange and citric, with supporting buttresses of banana and bubblegum flavors. As it warms, the coriander recedes to being one of several small towers, alongside the banana and bubblegum, with notes of clove and faint pear. It still strikes me as almost more wit-like than hefe-like.
Mouthfeel: Light, lively, bubbly, and refreshing.
Overall: A darned good beer, if not quite up to the standard of their Brau Weisse for me. This feels less like a concentrated weissbier and more like a blend of one with a wit, but that’s hardly a bad thing in my book! KPBrew (1) - - JUL 18, 2015 does not count
Substantial aroma. Wheat and banana that is good with heavier meals. Nice head retention. drmet (979) - GERMANY - JAN 14, 2016

Bright gold opaque pour, bubbly body and head - probably the nicest-looking weizen I’ve found. Lovely sugary and banana bread nose - notes of candied cherry, gingerbread, lemon. Taste is brown-sugar sweet, ripe banana, cherry, lemon. Spicy finish. Could use a bit more grain or hop to counteract the sweetness - but still excellent. Palate is velvety and luxurious. Overall - holy crap!
