Recent bottle. Pours big head on lighter yellow body. Aroma is pure bannana, good thick mouthfeel, and bannana in the taste. More like a hefeweizen. Drinkability was good. I was looking for more of an edge and complexity I love so much in weizenbocks. This was full, just the bannana overode the taste department.

Pours a murky honey gold with a 2 inch foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy chunks of lace slowly slide down the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, yeast, spices, and some pepper-like aromas. There is a slight fruity note that I am getting more as the beer warms as well. Taste is quite sweet and is of wheat, banana, yeast, and some very nice spice flavors in the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a lightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is very drinkable and very tasty.

4.47/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Gorgeous honey gold with bright lemon peel borders and very few yeasties on the initial pour. The pillowy crown is somewhere between pearl and beige, lasts for a spell, and does a fine job with glass decoration.

It looks and smells like this will be one of those weizenbocks that is primarily pale malted. That's a very good thing because it allows the yeast esters to dominate, as they should. The nose is chock full of tangy wheat, fresh banana and spicy clove. What a wonderful aroma!

Weizen-Bock may not have the complexity of the world's best weizenbocks, but it's damn good beer all the same. On second thought, maybe some of the darker malts might have been better. As is, the yeast has been given the spotlight... and it does not disappoint.

The bottom end is held down by tangy untoasted wheat. Top notes include luscious fruit and a perfectly complementary spiciness. Pink bubblegum makes an appearance as well. The (hefeweizen) banan-o-meter score is a lofty 3.0/4.0. Maybe even 3.5/4.0. What a fantastic yeast strain. This really is beautifully crafted beer.

The mouthfeel didn't seem special at first, but it does now that I've turned my attention to it. It's lightly creamy (becoming more so with warming) and has a perfect amount of bubbles. A light tongue sizzle doesn't cross over the line... and the banana burps are some kind of enjoyable.

Brauerei Aying is one of my very favorite German breweries. That's largely due to the excellent Brau Weisse, but Ur-Weisse, Oktober Fest-Marzen and Jahrhundert Bier are very good in their own right. Weizen-Bock is an outstanding weizenbock if you like 'em pale malted and bananarific.

4.15/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy, bright orange color with a big white head that eventually settles down a finger's worth.

S: Lots of sweetness and fruitiness on the nose, which are quite pleasant. Sweet malt and wheat with some ripe apples, pears, and citrus. A touch of spicy esters as well.

T: Moderately sweet with the same clean malt and wheat character. Sweet oranges, apples, and pears are there again as well. The clove spice character is present, but somewhat subdued.

M: The body is medium with a full and rolling carbonation that fills the mouth.

D: Not a problem at all to drink the half liter bottle of this one. Maybe not quite as good as some of the other weizenbocks I've had, but still quite quaffable.

3.6/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy light amber with a Germanic weizen head; nice stickage and lacing

Smell: Honey-sprinkled banana and clove; a bit boozy

Taste: Banana bread drizzled with honey and a building clove character in the middle; increasingly malty, after the swallow, with a lingering sense of the banana in the finish; underneath is a faint tartness that builds throughout though the overall effect is very sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a somewhat prickly carbonation

Overall: Another nice beer from Ayinger and while the malty bock character is appropriate to this example, it is not my favorite element in the world of weizens

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A complex wheat that really showcases the characterful wheat flavors and aromas.

This Weizenbock begins with a hazy golden color with bleach white foamstance that doesn't rise like most wheat beers do but the staying power is great. Light lacing at best.

Strong fruity aromas of banannas, appricots, lemons and other tropical fruits. Spicy with clove leading the way, followed by white pepper, bubblegum, and light smoke.

Flavors are every bit as varying and intense as in aroma. Heavy emphasis on bananna, clove, bubblegum, and a meaty-smokey taste that comes in deep in the taste. Wheat and barley malts give a rich bready taste and softens the onslaught of fruit and spice.

Sweet and rounded up front, feeling full from the higher carbonation. Remains sweet going into the finish and aftertaste, leaving a lot of malt on the tongue and mouth.

Quite good but you got to like characterful and sweet wheat beers to thoroughly enjoy this beer. Where hops are absent, the complexity and balance comes from the intense spicy phenols and frutiy esters.... and that odd meaty taste.

Served in a Russian River Sound Czech pilsner glass.

Pours a very cloudy light golden color with a dense white head that sticks around for a bit. Some spotty lacing on the sides of the glass and a thick collar throughout. The nose is filled with clove, alcohol, and a strong bready presence. The flavor scales back on the bread and picks up more clove along with a bit of banana. Booze there as well. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Pretty good, though nothing I'd go out of my way for again; nowhere near Celebrator.

A: The beer poured golden yellow in color into a weizen glass with a two finger high head. It has a high amount of carbonation and good head retention properties.
S: There are some aromas of fruits and sweetness in the nose; bananas really stand out in particular and cloves and wheat are also evident.
T: Like the smell, the taste also has a moderate amount of sweetness with lots of banana flavors and notes of other fruits, cloves and wheat.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and very smooth with a high amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is quite refreshing and the alcohol content is completely hidden from both the smell and taste.

16.9 ounce bottle - $3.29 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very cloudy, darkened yellow-orange body with a tall, swiftly growing, whitish head that simply lasts and lasts.

Smell: The nose is largely wheat and yeast driven, with it's sweetish, tangy scents and notes citrus, spicy, and bananas.

Taste: Sweet, tangy malted wheat with jolting tastes of honey candy and spiced cookies followed by a bright, acidic 'pop' of lemon citrus. Smooth banana tones. Very slight hop character and bitterness. Slight carbonic bite from all that carbonation present. Sweetish honey-wheat flavor on the effervescent finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Highly carbonated, which keeps the proceedings very easily drinkable and even downright refreshing.

Drinkability: That lively, engaging effervescence lends a remarkable keen ease to the overall drinkability, making for a fine, enjoyable, wheaty brew.

You know I didnt even know Ayinger made a weizenbock,man was I in in the dark.Poured a mix of tea and lemonade with a large blooming crown atop that settled very slowly into a creamy-like mass.A mix of green apple and lemon stands out most in the nose,light yeasty spice and sweet alcohol shows thru as well.Lightly medicinal and clove spice hit the palate melding into lemon pith and sweetish alcohol,although the alcohol is not obtrusive.Honestly I would have never imagined the abv of this beer,its not light as far as feel goes,it just goes down easily.A nice beer from a very tradional brewery.

Served in an Ayinger weizen glass.

Pours a cloudy pale golden straw topped by more than enough bright white foamy head that left surprisingly little lacing behind. The smell holds notes of banana, clove, wheat, sugar cane, and toasted rice. The taste generally follows, those clovey banana notes up front, followed by a rush of wheat and a vague sense of non-cloying sweetness, ending with some coriander and a yeasty funk that melds nicely with the wheaty flavors. The body is medium at best, with perfect carbonation and a very smooth texture. Overall, a tasty and highly drinkable brew.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle - cool to see the Ayinger goat mascot resplendent in the Bavarian snow, much like my own half-year long wintery climate.

This beer pours a fairly cloudy pale golden yellow colour, with tons of billowy and finely foamy white head, which leaves a low wall of seaside berm lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of rather sweet, grainy wheat malt, banana bubblegum, clove/coriander spice, spiked orange juice, peppery yeast, and a surprisingly forward alcohol astringency - boozy banana bread! The taste is strong apple and banana fruit esters, a touch of orange citrus, semi-sweet wheat malt, spicy yeast, yeasty clove, and a bit of warming alcohol, certainly more well-behaved than in the nose.

The carbonation is moderate, but with a huge airy, but still innocuous frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, mostly smooth, and somewhat creamy. It finishes slightly sweet, the wheatiness persisting, along with some lingering yeast and booze.

A nice, pretty warm and wheaty, fruity and yeasty German ale. Not nearly as strong-seeming as the labeled ABV would indicate, which suggests a certain set of capable integration skills, if not any more overall complexity than what I am able to describe here.

Ayinger Weizen-Bock.

Hazy yellow, prodigious snowy white head, big, but quick to crumble.

Banana and citrus aroma, light, fresh and airy. Alert and lively, much more like a hefe weizen than a weizenbock, though.

Smooth, but keenly textured, just enough grit to tickle the palate. Extraordinary smoothness and drinkability. Great tastin', too.

A Little disappointed I didn't get quite the flavor I look forward to in a dark wheat doppelbock. This here's a blonde wheat bock, and tastes more like a regular hefe weizen, with a bit more body. Tasty, though, undeniably tasty.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Picked this up at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a weizen glass.

A - Even when carefully poured I still managed to get a billowing four fingers of creamy white foam that eventually dissipates to a half-finger cap, but fails to leave much lacing. Slightly hazed golden straw body with a few bubbles racing upwards - it's the lightest weizenbock I've ever had, and I'd be hard-pressed to distinguish it from a regular hefe.

S - My initial impression is a ton of banana and cloves - probably too much clove for my liking. There's some other fruity esters and bubblegum sweetness, and some sharp wheat character. Matches the style perfectly I suppose - it's a stronger (bock-strength) hefeweizen.

T - Taste is mostly fruity esters, with hints of peach, orange, and banana, along with bubblegum sweetness. The finish is tangy yeast and light wheat flavors. Minimal aftertaste, and well-hidden ABV. Thankfully the clove element is more restrained here.

M - Carbonation is surprisingly soft considering the beers appearance, and the body is a nice medium density that suits the higher ABV. Still it's quite refreshing and suggest an ABV closer to 5%, as there is minimal heat.

D - The 500ml serving size is no problem with this one. If you're looking for something a little more substantial that your typical hefe, this is the way to go. Probably the best example I've had of this style.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, bananas, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then a strong banana flavor comes in with a bit of sweetness. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured into a large Spaten weizen-shaped glass with a handle. Murky orange with a fluffy cap resting on the surface, at least a 3 finger head. Pouring the yeast in gives it a soupy weizenbock opacity. Clove in the nose, with the standard Ayinger hefe yeast. A little phenolic with a trace of banana. Flavor is lightly sweet and bready, more clove spice than banana in this one. Leaning more towards hefe than a supercharged weizenbock like Aventinus. Still it's very clean and refreshing. Overall i'd try it again, it's a nice Fall beer.

Pours an effervescent & semi-hazy straw color with +3 fingers of cream colored head. Minimal head retention & lacing

S: Cloves, juicy fruit & breadyness

T: Follows the nose, clove really grabs hold of this up front. Green banana, more cloves & band aids as this warms along with honey malt & some passion fruit & some lemon, plus a touch of persimmons, plus breadyness. Finishes with much cloves, grainy bread & green bananas

MF: Medium bodied with low carbonation

D: Very nice drinkability, the ABV is very well hidden. Another great beer from Ayinger, loved the label as well. One of the best W-bocks I've had, if not the best

The beer pours a cloudy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is awesome! It has a really nice pale and wheat malt scent along with an outstanding hefe yeast aroma. The banana/clove character is well pronounced. The taste is good. It has a solid malt flavor that 's extremely dry with a nice fruity yeast finish. The yeast character really makes this beer. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a very good weizenbock. I've been a fan of Ayinger beers before, but this one is outstanding.

Poured from a bottle into an imperial pilsner glass. Beer is orange and hazy and really aggressively carbonated. Forms a big head of medium white bubbles that leaves some lacing on the glass. There are yeast dregs in this bottle that ended up entirely in the second half of the beer. Both halves tasted approximately the same.

Aroma is a little weak, mild fruits, some graininess.

Beer is fruity and mildly bitter. Finishes wet and has a medium to light feel in the mouth. Lots of carbonation on the palate and some nice flavors throughout. I would drink this beer again in a minute. Very enjoyable, high drinkability and good mouthfeel.

Pours a cloudy dark straw color with a white head. The main aroma is bready malts and German yeast but you also get some banana and clove. The flavor is heavy on the banana and clove but the bready malts are still there. Thinner mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I had read reviews stating this was basically a souped-up hefeweizen and those reviews were correct. Whatever it is, it is very good.

A - Poured out a cloudy, golden yellow color with a huge, three-finger, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It left soapy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of wheat, banana, clove and touches of caramel malt.

T - It tasted of sweet wheat with fruity flavors, mostly banana. There was a nice yeasty presence with a light caramel maltiness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and bubbly on the tongue. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

D - This is a true German weizenbock because it is more weizen than bock. It is very delicious and a bargain at less than $5.

A solid pour nets me a fluffy, four-finger thick head in my 25cl tulip glass that is a pale tan color. The beer is a murky looking gold / amber color that shows a deeply hazed, bright orange / straw color when held up to the light. I wasn't expecting a Helles Weizen Bock, but I am quite happy to see one. As I am pouring this characteristic aromas of clove and banana are quite noticeable. A more focused inspection of the nose yields lots of banana backed by spicy clove notes in the finish as well as a touch of white pepper. Underneath are aromas of grassy grain, a rustic grain character that reminds me of fresh crushed wheat, perhaps a touch of fruity apple notes as well. This has a nice, characteristic aroma that I am definitely digging.

Somewhat dry tasting, at least I was expecting more sweetness in a Bock version, though there is a hint of complex wheat sweetness that is a suggestion towards the finish. There is a nice bite to the finish that is a combination of spicy yeast character, hop bitterness and a carbonic bite. This has a really nice grain flavor to it, chewy, rustic, a bit hay-like and lightly tart in its wheat character. Soft flavors of banana, and perhaps even some sweet / tart green apple are noticeable here. This has a nice lush texture to it, chewy, almost toothsome at times; I have had normal strength Hefes with this texture, but this is a bit chewy compared to most normal strength versions. This beer is so drinkable though, my first pour of this disappears way faster than I was expecting it to.

This is a very tasty beer; it really hides its strength quite well, which is certainly dangerous in a 7.1% beer. I really like how vibrant the traditional Hefeweizen character is here; it definitely seems like the character volume has been turned up a bit, which is really then only, subtle, sign that this is not a traditional strength Hefewiezen. Very tasty and one that I am definitely enjoying, this must be an absolutely killer beer when it is fresh.

Thanks to Wasatch for this one!

Poured into Ayinger weizen glass:

Pours hazed/clouded golden yellow with a massive head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of strong sweetened bananas with clove and pepper. Robust, banana and spicy.

The taste is very banana-y - reminiscent of banana chip candy. Clove and black pepper add a drying spiciness to the sweet-ish finish. A touch of alcohol warmth shows through that is welcomed in the cold of winter.

A classic, for sure! A HW on steroids...very banana-ish with nice spicing. Drinks very well even with alcohol touch, that adds a nice pepper note. A strong HW (thus weizen bock) that is dreamy!

Appearance is great one of those billowing beer heads from the commercials this brew is ready for it's close up, big bubbled sturdy carbonation much like a hefe. I love most of Ayinger's products and so far this one is no different call it love at first sight if you must. Slightly clouded with yeast sediment, bright golden body with an effervescent billowing egg shell white head. Lacing is intricate as all hell lines my glass sip by sip, great stuff. Toward the end of my pour I literally had to smack the bottom of the bottle against the edge of my table to let the sediment loose to pour it.

Aroma strong banana clove typical of hefe with some yeast nuttiness as well. Alcohol is evident but so are all of the esters that make this yeast strain famous. A bit of lemon zest and herbal hops are evident but really masked by the esters and alcohol notes.

Flavor wise this stuff is great big booze ridden hefezeweizen, goes down smooth with some banana, apple, clove and nutty yeast edges. Most hefe's are so delicate that it's hard to describe it all this one smacks you in the face with the esters and booze in a good way.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied flow, goes down smooth. A bit cloying in the same breath but the big bodied hefe is such a welcomed surprise that I'm cool with it. If you don't like a good hefeweizen you're not going to like this.

Drinkability is great another fine creation from Ayinger strong like the horned goat and smooth like the winter snow. I'm down for another and more if you can find this brew.
