Had this awesome beer many times, but just getting around to reviewing it.

A brown brew with a billowy tan head that peaks above the rim and dies quickly with little evidence of it's existence.

Aroma is rich with prominent notes of banana, clove and beer bread.

Mostly creamy with prolific notes of spice and banana along with some grass and tangerine in the end.

Something about a great Hefe in the winter seems so transgressive and perfect.

500 ml bottle was poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow brown color with slight vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bananas, cloves, hefe yeast, wheat, sweetness.

Taste: Grainy banana bread with slight bitterness and twang in the rear. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, refreshing, medium bodied, filling, tasty,

Overall: Leave it up to the Germans to make a solid dunkelweizen. They seem to do it the best. Another solid brew from this brewery.

Poured from a 500 mL bottle.

Dark amber / light brown in color with a large, pillowy off-white head.  Great aroma of banana, cloves, and ripe fruits.  Sweet flavor with the yeast very prominent, but in great balance with the malt and hops.  Medium-bodied with a great mix of fruit and spice.  Rich and refreshing.

I had this side by side with Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel and preferred the Ayinger, which is saying a lot.  A top representation of the style for sure.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a semi-hazy dark amber color with two fingers' worth of fizzy light tan head that retains well before slowly popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind and there are chunks of sediment suspended in the body.

S- Rich yeast brings notes of banana and clove set against a wheat backdrop.

T- Lots of bubble gum as the yeast takes hold with the spices coming in to round things out with some zing. So smooth and tasty, I keep going back for more and more sips. The wheat malt provides some bready notes and there's just a tinge of oxidation.

M- The medium-high carbonation makes this one kind of spritzy. Body leans toward the fuller side.

O- Supremely drinkable and packed with flavor. One of my favorite wheat beers for sure.
