Pours an extremely hazy light gold body with a bright white head of extremely fine bubbles that leaves an delicate lacing behind. Aromas are sweet and fruity (mostly banana-like), with yeasty aromas of rising bread dough. Its flavors are consistent with the nose (except with a tiny bit of lemon peel) and with the profiles of its major German competitors, but with a sweeter finish. Its silky smooth texture is delightful.

Got a glass of this at Cloverleaf Tavern.

A: Pours a cloudy, straw-yellow body with a small, white head with poor retention, but with some lacing along the sides of the glass.

S: A sweet, malt smell with some citrus and olive undertones.

T: A strong, banana ester taste with a velvety, lemon and olive aftertaste. Hint of sweet malts are evident as well.

M: A light anf refreshing beer that proves to be representative of a Hefeweizen. While slightly watery, it still held true to style, in my opinion.

D: A good combination of mouthfeel and taste makes this a drinkable beer, overall. Mouthfeel seemed a little thin, but the drinkability of the beer seemed good nonetheless.

A- A very pale yellow, cloudy with some sediment even with a good swirl.

S- Light, fruity and a faint hint of clove.

T- I am partial to Hefe's but this one is among the best. Sweet banana is the strongest flavor. Slight clove taste in the finish.

D- Highly drinkable. I would like to have this regularly but the cost prohibits that. A nice treat once in a while. Really nice on hot summer day

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

A- Pours with a big white head on a crystal clear yellow/golden body.
S- Big clove and bananas, nice helping of wheat and some spices from the hops. Some other lighter fruits like a hint of orange, lemon, peach, and pineapple.
T- Some light bubble gum, banana, cloves, wheat, hints of yeast, a balance of spices with a lingering bitterness to it.
M- Medium body with a high carbonation.
D-It is a very refreshing and good hefeweizen. I would pick this one up again without a question.

A hazy tea-yellow with a huge cloud of whiteness floating atop. The head dissipated rather quick, though. Excellent carbonation and smells like bananas, lemons, and...pureed baby fruit. heh.

The flavor is stellar and presents itself in proper hefeweizen form. Wonderful flavors of banana, fruit, clove-like spice, and wheat. Faint hops provide a slight bitter ending...very lemonade like finish, tart and sweet. The carbonation adds a tingle and fizz. Nice.

Another quality hefeweizen that I would definately recommend.

Poured into a Weizen glass. Pours a golden semi clear color. Nice white head lasted the whole time. Ok lacing.

Aroma is slightly clovy. Bit more banana in this one. Kinda wheaty and a bit of hay.

Taste is the same. Nice and wheaty. Little bit of clove and nice banana in the finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing. Medium carb.

Overall a decent hefe. Would have again.

The aroma is a model of what a German Hefe should be. It has bananas, spice, incense, sour fruit, and wheat. The appearance is a hazy gold with a large head. The flavor is malty and fruity with an emphasis on bananas and citrus. There are also robust bitter and sour elements as well. The palate is typical of the style. The aftertaste is bread like and a little sweet but fairly dry for a Hefe.

Ayinger Brau- Weisse Hefe-Weizen pours out a fluffy,
long-lasting head over a cloudy gold brew. Carbonation
is steady, and the nose is yeast and wheat. The flavor is
bisquity with citrus notes. The mouthfeel is light, crisp, and
refreshing, and there is a slight citrus aftertaste. If you want
a really good hefe- weizen, this is the one. All the elements
that make it good are there- the flavors are subtle yet distinct.
If you're somebody who likes hops in their beer you might be
disappointed (this style has none)- but it makes for a nice change
of pace if you've been exploring hoppy beers for a while.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, beer is a slightly cloudy, golden-yellow color with a huge, bubbly head. Lots of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass. Wheat malt and clove are apparent in the nose, slightly metallic smell. The taste also has a slight metallic tinge, aside from that, the wheat is balanced well with a moderate amount of bittering hops. The banana and clove taste that generally come with a Hefe are not very apparent in this brew. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with creamy carbonation. This is a decently drinkable beer, but the taste seems off the mark.

A - Classic hefeweizen haziness, permeated by appetizing spice-brown colours.

S - Smells wondrous: yeast, refreshing wheat and a dab of citrus.

T - Very clean flavours. Crisp and refreshing. In a different league from the last hefeweizen I had - Sierra Nevada Kellerweis.

M - Beautifully balanced. Just the right level of carbonation.

O - One of the finest hefeweizen’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking; it’s right up there with Schneider Weisse Tap 7 and Weihenstephaner.

I purchased this tonight at Downtown Wine & Spirits along with a few other bottles. I chilled this in the fridge and served it in my UFO Weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden with a thick creamy white head that collapses to a thin quarter-inch layer.

Smell: Very yeasty with notes of bubble-gum, banana, clove and citrus. There are also grainy and spicy aromas.

Taste: Sweet upfront, with spicy cloves in the center and a citric and grainy finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, moderate carbonation with a crisp finish.

Drinkability: Very refreshing, especially given the current weather.

Overall: This is a good beer, but not my favorite Hefe.
