look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a weissen glass. The color is a hazy golden color, lots of bubbles streaming up into a thin white head that dissipated quickly.

The aroma is strong on citrus on first smell... lemon and a little orange come through. Smells like some hops in there too... very nice.

The taste is mostly the same... citrus flavors up front with some hops at the end, fantastic beer, cool and refreshing, I like it a lot. There is a good bit of carbonation and a thin mouthfeel but that doesn't take away from the brew at all. I've only have a few beers from Aying and so far they are all top notch... and this might be the most drinkable sessionable of them all.

Small, perfect white head. Foggy, golden body.

Definite banana smell.

Taste is a little mellow for my preferences. Has a slight alcohol taste, and not a lot of complexity.

Creamy mouthfeel. The beer gains body in your mouth. Nice carbonation.

Very easy to drink. Enjoyable, but perhaps an overrated hefe.

This is a decent beer- one of the better hefe weisses I can remember having. Appearance shows some head with a bit of lacing for the first half of the glass. Smell and taste are similar, sweet malt and spice is all I get. Mouthfeel is medium in body. Drinkability is good.

A- Pours a cloudy golden hue with a somewhat frothy white head that dissipates quickly leaving little to no lacing.

S- Sweet smell of banana and darker fruits hits the nose. Quite a potent smell.

T- Start off with a strong malty taste and finishes very clean leaving a banana taste.

M- Very crisp and refreshing. Slight reminants stick around for a while.

D- Very drinkable. Excellent on a warm summer day.

Pours a nice cloudy pale yellow, with a less than average head for a hefe.

Aroma was fresh and clean, notes of banana. Had a very organic note as well, something between spring runoff and freshly cut grass.

Taste is true to the style, if just a bit light. Nice crisp wheat, yeast, lemon rind, and a mild banana-nut flavor. not too much in the way of cloves on this one. A very subtle sourness in the finish. I think this could improve with a little more sweetness and a good layer of yeast in the bottle.

This is a nice and respectable brew for hot days, or paired with flavorful food.

Poured into a weizenglas the beers color was healthy gold. Nicly saturated with yeast and properly murky. A nice white head was building, justices expected.
Smell announced fruity taste and mild hops.
Tasting the beer you had fruit like lemon, citrus and maybe a little banana and orange up front , bread and grain in the middle, nicely balanced with hops at the end.
Being born and raised in Bavaria , of course I am used to better Hefeweizen. But this is a good example of it. Very drinkable with very refreshing mouthfeel.

Absolutely delicious. Pours like a dream a cloudy yellow with a billowing white head. Smells of bubblegum and bannana with touches of the spicy clove. The taste is a pure phenol delight with slight blossom of citrus in the finish. Substance of body with but still enjoyable light. Drinkable is not even the word.

Really impressive opaque honey yellow color. Dense persistent head. Yeast and fruits in the smell. The taste is also fruity, with lemon, and some hints of bananas. A pleasing sweetness. Wheat and yeasts clearly perceptible The mouthfeel is very enjoyable, the taste of hops is reduced and gives the beer a high drinkability. A very good beer in my opinion.
