This unfiltered classic hefeweizen poured a deep gold straw yellow with a huge white head that didn’t take on the cloudy opaque texture until I poured the sediment from the bottom of the bottle. I left about a quarter of the beer, swirled it around to activate the sediment and continued to pour it into this wonderful looking hefeweizen. The aroma was much fruitier than most of the traditional hefe’s with the signature spice but the bubblegum & banana notes were missing. Not to fear, the first sip brought the banana notes to the forefront, but with more of a fruity balance along with the spiciness. The smooth and creamy mouthfeel delivered this Hefe masterpiece to my palate where the wonderful flavors danced on my tongue. Very light yet full flavored the Ayinger is another excellent hefeweizen and right up there with the Weihenstephaner.

Re-reviewing this beer after over a year without seeing it. Purchased 500 ml bottle from LCBO for $3.95.served a little colder than I'd like into glassware.

Appearance - slow, gentle pour still yields nearly two and a half fingers of dense yet little fluffy head. Remarkable lacing left on the sides of the glass. Hazy and rich golden yellow pour. Lots of bubbles. Good head retention too. Really attractive looking.

Smell - banana and clove with a doughy base are the primary aromas. There's a bit of pepper in there too before the banana and especially the bread overwhelm. Aromatic without being over-saturated.

Taste - starts of light with some wheat flavours, the transitions to a rich banana taste before finishing spicy with clove and pepper.

Mouthfeel - very well carbonated, yet incredibly light body that beckons for more. Smooth as hell too.

Overall - a world class brew that in my mind stands up against any of the German hefeweizens and more than holds its own. Remarkably light bodied even compared with others in the style, as the only other I've tried that can match Ayinger in this respect is Weihenstephaner. A perfect beer to consume on a hot sunny Canada day. Cheers!
