Excellent pour with a soft pillowy head and a rich looking wheat body. No looking through this glass. Nice fresh wheat scents with a minty banana nose. Smells outstanding! Light bodied, a bit thin, with a clove-like wheat-ness and a tingly orange peel backdrop. Slightly tart, however, I bought this at a grocery store and don't the date on this one. I do not like buying any wheat beer without a freshness date on it but ayingers' are great no matter.

This one does measure up with great hefeweizens out there, even though I generally prefer American versions because they are usually more fresh. This weizen is nothing to snub, however, as it is an enjoyable beer anytime of the season!

Almost looks like apricot nectar with a (relatively) thin head. The thin part of the head is the only problem here, though what there is lasts and lasts.

The aroma is bubblegum. Some banana backing it up but bubblegum is the predominant note and it's right out there.

The flavor tends more toward the banana side of things with the bubblegum backing it up. Some citric tartness as well and just a little bitterness to balance the scales. The downside is that it's a little on the watery side.

Light bodied with good carbonation lending a creamy mouthfeel.

Overall it's a very nice hefeweizen but I'd probably go for Weihenstephaner as it's both less expensive and easier to find (when Dancing Man isn't around.)
