Poured from a 500mL bottle into my Ayinger weizen glass. No freshness date.
Liquid pours an extremely hazy pale old gold with a voluminous seashell head with superior lacing.
The nose yields mild yeast (maybe), faint esters, and a touch of diacetyl melding with the wheat (like buttered bread). Lacking banana, clove, or other characteristic notes...
On the palate, there is malt (pilsner?), citrus, wheat thins, a little sourness, with a brisk tart finish. Good balance of flavors, though they never quite coalesce properly. Some elements bring to mind a banal domestic hefeweizen, or even a German lager - again this lacks most of the flavors you would expect in the style.
Medium-light bodied softly blooming with effervesence.
Very easy drinking, and it goes down rapidly; on the other hand, this is partly because there is not much to savor.
Worth drinking, though not worth seeking out.
