Long have I been looking for Ayinger's Oktoberfest offering! I love their wheat bears and I couldn't imagine that their marzen would be any less astounding. Often, when I finally get my hands on a beer that I've been coveting for so long, the result is disappointment, disillusionment, and despair. Reality rarely lives up to the expectations that build in the mind as it yearns for something. Not so, this time!

Possibly the best Oktoberfest I've yet had. Easily ranks with my top two or three examples. This is one that I will seek out more aggressively next fest season.

October 21, 2014

16.9 oz bottle, weizen glass

A – Pure gold, with just a touch of amber highlights. Bubbly white head, about an inch, tons of bubbles rising to the top long after the pour. This beer LOOKS like the month of October.

S – Warm, slightly browned bread, fresh from a stone oven. Light toffee. Some notes of citrus in the background, but very clean.

T – Again, warm, fresh bread, a touch of caramel and light lemon, perhaps orange. A very clean profile, nothing hiding in the background. It is what it is.

M – Juicy, malty, some very mild bitterness makes itself known, but not in excess. Moderately dry finish, though there is some slight residual sweetness in the aftertaste.

O – A very good, flavorful, refreshing beer, made for drinking a lot of it outdoors on a cool, sunny autumn day. No flash, just substance. Can’t go wrong.
