Pours cloudy dark amber with a moderate head. Huge pleasant aroma of banana, pear, cloves and peaches. Taste is sweet, fruity and delicious, similar to the Ayinger Ur-Weisse multiplied by 2. Thankfully all of the Ayinger beers are easy to find in the area for which I am extremely grateful. For me they are the gold standard of Bavarian beers although I have never travelled abroad. I have consumed several cases of the weizenbock and ur-weisse and have never been disappointed, regardless of what I am eating, drinking or feeling. They are truly miraculous in this respect, always enjoyable.

One of the most sensational beers I have ever tried. I certainly do have a fondness for heffeweizens, tripels, etc so I am making that my disclaimer here before my review. I could literally drink this beer forever and not get tired of it. Smells like delicious wheat, banana, hint of clove and citrus, all perfectly balanced. Nice solid 2 finger head that dissipates within 2 minutes. very nice white head with a hint of yellow around the edges. Tastes delicious, full thick wheaty taste, with lots of banana and smooth as a baby's bottom. clean and crisp from start to finish, no hint of alcohol, no burn or heat emanating at any point during a sip. Enough complexity to keep me coming back, and as my amateur palate develops, I will continue to drink this beer to continue to explore all of its mystique and beauty.

You know those things you experience that make you feel glad to be alive? Things so damned good that you feel a little guilty by just enjoying them? For me, the Ayinger Weizen-Bock is one of those things - both a simple pleasure and a profound experience, simultaneously.

A- Cloudy yellow-amber, with a touch of pearlescent olive. The huge, shaving cream white foam settles a bit, but never really quits. Lots of lace.

S- The aroma of this beer is spectacular. Irresistable. Totally seductive. Big clove and nutmeg phenols. Rich fruity soft-banana esters. Lavish honeyed puffed wheat. Classic hefe yeast on overdrive, afterburners, and turbo boost.

T- HUGE, round, full, opulent flavors of soft banana, clove, nutmeg, honey-puffed wheat, yeasty dough, and bubble gumballs carpet bomb the palate with pleasure. The long, lingering sweet finish is like that after enjoying a piece of perfect banana bread.

M, D- Feel is rich, on the full side of medium, but PERFECTLY balanced, and the CO2 ideally livens the maltiness. Far too drinkable for what it is, evidence of expert brewing craftsmanship.

This Ayinger Weizen-Bock is a masterful creation.

I absolutely adore Vitus, but Ayinger's Weizen-Bock, dare I say, is somehow more drinkable, and thus offers a bit more pleasure.

Take a look at the label art, and notice our friend the German billy goat (Bock) has a pair. Quite appropriate, since this Ayinger Weizen-Bock definitely has a pair too.

Purchased a bottle this from Total Wine in Delaware. Another miracle-beer out of Aying. Pours a golden, cloudy haze with the perfect head for a wheat beer.
Smell is sweet.
Taste is bananas & cloves, very smooth and not too sharp. Possibly vanilla too. Very sweet.
Mouthfeel is heavy and just right.
Excellent purchase.

Golden color, very cloudy. Lots of carbonation rising up. Thick marshmellow like head. Leaves a awesome lacing behind.

Aroma is very assertive. Lots of spice, cloves, banana, bready wheat.

Bursting with tons of flavor. Bready, cloves, banana, bubble gum, orange spice, peppery, caramel. Crisp smooth finish. Full bodied, milk shake texture, soft carbonation.
