4.33/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Serving: Bottle into pint glass
Served: 23 March 2014

Appearance: Light, hazy yellow with some golden/orange tints around the edges. Soft white head that dissipates due to the alcohol content. Leaves some bubbles on the side. No lacing.

Smell: Banana, white wine, pear.

Taste: Banana and some slight spice. Alcohol present at times, but not always. Suspended yeast add depth of flavor. Semi-sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Soft and smooth.

Overall: If there is such a thing as an imperial hefeweizen, this is it. All the notes of a traditional hefeweizen are emphasized and made bigger in this brew. In traditional weizenbock fashion, this beer sneaks up on you. Since it tastes so simple- much like what you would find in a hefeweizen, but a bit sweeter- it lulls you into a false sense of security. Only after this point do you start feeling the alcohol a bit. Fantastic beer. Very, very different from Aventinus, another popular weizenbock. Looking forward to comparing it to Weihenstephaner Vitus soon.

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. :)
