Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider Weisse weizen glass.

Pours a hazy golden/orange colour with a very lively head.

Smells very yeasty and quite fresh.

Tastes very fresh as well. Quite prominent wheat flavour with a bitter and spicy hop kick.

Overall a really great beer, a perfect example of the style.

Pours a pale amber in the chalice. Nicely sudsy with a thin foamy ring, along with fine, persistent bubbles in the mouth. Aroma of apples and bread.

This brew has the nicest watery body with the creamy carbonation I admire in the best German beers. The classic wheat esters but in a lighter, more fragrant style. All the flavors are quite elegant. Starts out with that slight malty sweetness and edges into a pleasant fruitiness-- more pear than banana. Some spicy notes, but not the common overload of clove.

Really a great example of the classic German style. It travels well in the approximately 12 oz bottle.

Decided on this one for Thanksgiving dinner. Straight pour from bottle into weizen glass. Great looking unfiltered hefe with a monster 3 finger pillow head that sticks around for a long time. Smell is true to the style with banana and clove notes. Perhaps a bit of spice and bread. Taste is very crisp and bread forward. Nice hints of fruits and a touch of spice. Minimal hop distraction. Pick up a biscuit/bread hint as well. A nice earthy wheat to close out the tongue. Very easy to drink. Feel is decent. Adequate carbonation and a bit of silk on the tongue. A little watery and dry, but not too thin. Overall- I really like this hefe. Great balance and combination of the true hefe characteristics. Ayinger is a solid outfit and I have enjoyed their beers. This is perhaps their best effort. Great brew to go with Thanksgiving and will be getting more of these soon. A must try-

Drinking alone tonight. My fiance is in Jersey, so it's sushi/steak night. Decided to start with something light to go with the sushi rolls.

This one pours a cloudy gold with a nice foamy head. Eventually settles down with a thin film. Looks good. Smells nice - banana, wheat. Taste - has a solid amount of carbonation which creates a crisp bite, more than other hefes I've tried. Flavorful as hell - banana, clove with a "wheaty" aftertaste. A faint touch of bitterness.

This one gets high marks all around. Refreshing, especially after a week filled with tough financial decisions. Will have again.
