At first pour i wonder where they get the sense to put Bock in the name, this is rather a pale golden color, with a great pearlesent head, a very attractive beer, but not the brownish body i was expecting when i pryed off the cap. very attractive looking non the less. Spices and Banana, Yeasty, estery and light fruit such as pears red apples. Yeast is pretty forefront considering the style, but i offer the disclaimer i did pour in the yeast Hefe style half way through this review, i'm not one to shy away from a good helping of yeast if its around. medium carbination in a medium light body, with a semi dry finish. this one is great and refreshing chilled right now as im sitting in my 80f room. very drinkable. this is one i would enjoy keeping stocked as a refreshing summer beer. very good.

500 ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.
A - As cloudy as can be, this lighter weizenbock appears more like a dirty apricot than a darker dunkel-type weiss beer. It's creamy and tight off-white head towers over the cloudy beer for some time before slowly dropping to a thick skim of foam that leaves small fingers of lace.
S - Heavy clove and white pepper yeast-driven spice esters waft from the nose and blanket the smooth ripe banana notes that peek through. This weizenbock's malty base gives the beer a bready feel just like a doppelbock despite it's lighter color. Paired with the banana, the malty base gives the beer a spicy banana bread-like aroma that's quite inviting!
T - Profoundly bready, this beer's maltiness coats the tongue with a light dribble of sweet caramel, warm, gooey banana bread - banana derived from the bold yeast esters - and slightly buttery finish. Like the aroma, clove spice cannot be missed, lingering through all the beer's other complexities.
M - Ayinger's Weizenbock has the perfect mouthfeel for a beer of this style; rich and malty with a big body and slight lingering sweetness but balanced expertly by incredibly soft, creamy wheat, bright carbonation, and complimentary spice on the finish. Über smooth!
O - Though shockingly lighter than most weizenbock beers, Ayinger Weizenbock features all the same characteristics and blends them fabulously! Spice forward, this beer has yeast incorporated through every aspect of it from the aroma and flavor to finish. Creamy smooth, it's like fresh, moist banana bread, without any nuts, filling the stomach providing sustenance.
