Pours a cloudy as hell peachy orange yellow brown with a stark white head that falls fairly quickly and leaves ok lacing.
Whoa! The nose is excellent. Huge banana and clove flavors right out of the gate with a sneaky underlying malt presence.
This is definitely a weizen heavy weizenbock, and a DAMN fine one at that. Gigantic bavarian bananatastic flavor is complemented by bubble gum and clove. There is a perfect amount of malt presence balancing it out. The finish is smooth and the bock end of the deal makes its presence known best here. Crisp and slightly dry on the aftertaste with huge lingering wheat yeast flavors.
Mouthfeel is exactly where it should be. Slightly high carbonation is accurate to style and the smooth viscosity hits home for the style as well.
Drinkability is nearly mindblowing as this one really drinks like a 5% slammer. Fantastic.
Overall a fantastic weizen bock. Again, this is on the wheat end of the spectrum for sure, but thats how i like em. An excellent beer that any wheat beer fan should never pass up. Will be going back to the store to stock up on these bad boys tomorrow. Great beer. Firmly in my top 5 for weizenbocks, without question.

This is my first Weizenbock but I decided if I was going to try one it had to be from the legendary brewers that are Ayinger. Almost everything they make is gold. But speaking of gold, that's almost the color of this beer. This beer has a beautiful golden yellow color, it is beautiful to look at. I poured my beer into a glass and made sure that beer was nice and cold.
I'm a big fan of Hefeweizen beers and from my understanding a Weizenbock is a variation of that core style, just a more flavorful and powerful (higher alcohol content) variation.
This beer is really enjoyable. What I get from this beer is a creamy smooth mouthfeel that has notes of yeast/bread, ripe bananas, bubblegum, and a hint of citrus. It has very similar notes to their Ur-Weisse beer but this beer is stronger. The alcohol is very well masked though. This beer is VERY filling. It is thick and creamy in your mouth and by the time it reaches the stomach it feels like that yeast just expands out. This is like a meal in a glass (just like their Ur-Weisse). Because of this you will end up sipping this beer, which is great because you just want to enjoy every sip!
There is NO BITTER taste. I'm one of those people who hates bitter (hoppy) beers. I just can't understand why people pretend to like those beers, haha. The human body has evolved to dislike bitter things, hence why we hardly eat anything that is bitter (fact). This beer is on the opposite spectrum of the beer world. This is a malty beer so have no fear people with tastebuds, this actually tastes pleasant! You don't have to pretend to like this, you just will. :)
