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.
