50cl bottle poured into Weihenstephan Weissbier glass.

BBE May 2012

A- Cloudy blonde body with a 4 finger creamy head sitting on top, excellent retention, medium lacing. Lively beading

S- Typical banana/bubblegum, a suggestion of a biscuity graininess.

T- Lots of banana and hint of clove which i didnt get in the nose. Hint of grainy sweetness toward the semi dry crisp finish.

M- High carbonation, medium body/mouthfeel

D- Expected it to be lifeless considering age but it held up well. Excellent sessionable summer biergarten stuff! Off to Munich for Oktoberfest so will stop in at Ayinger am Platzl and re-review a fresh version.

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

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with some moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy white heads that has very good retention and very slowly reduces to finger tall cap in the center of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bananas with a lighter presence of clove - smells like what I would expect for the style.

T: Like the smell, the flavor of this beer is also dominated by the flavor of banana and the lighter presence of clove. The beer is sweeter than I expected with the wheat flavors coming through in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.

O: Extremely easy to drink, refreshing, and sessionable - one of the easiest beers to drink and pairs nicely with food. I could easily have many of these in a session and would enjoy them all.

Bottle from the LCBO, 500ml into a weizen glass.

Unfiltered yellow, with an almost greenish tinge to it. Good retention and lace. Nose has banana, wheat, some herbal hopping qualities. A tad sweet and drying. Taste has more banana, wheat, gentle hopping leaving a light bitterness and slightly drying light body. Full flavoured, and very easy drinking. I'd put this behind Weihenstephaner, but I'd stock this regularly if I could.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a hazy golden straw color with a four finger fizzy head that dissipates in 20 seconds without leaving any lacing behind. Medium-light body and carbonation levels.

Smells of banana, medium amounts of clove and vanilla, and a touch of yeasty bread. Tastes of the same elements but also contains a little garnish of fruity esters and earthy hop tone on the back end of the sip. Keeps semi-dry throughout, in fact, a touch drier overall than most other hefes I've had.

My only complaint is the lack of head formation, unusually tragic for a wheat beer.

Cool looking German style bottle into flute

Look is a very cloudy golden yellow with a small fizzy head that fades very quickly. smell is yeast, clove, wheat, and banana in that order. Taste is bright and crispy banana, clove, apple. Fell is crisp and light, high amount of carbonation

This would be excellent on a hot summer's day.
