This is my favorite beer of all time. Somehow I like this better than the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. Cloudy with a smell of yeast, bananas, and cloves. Not overly carbonated and very smooth feel.

The beer poured a hazed golden colour with a creamy snow white head that lingered. The aroma was light banana, spice, wheat and a wisp of citrus. The flavour is slightly sweet, and nicely balanced with the yeast notes and the wheat notes in harmony.

Look: Foam attack! The beer is so foamy it threatens to overrun your glass. The body is cloudy yellow, like lighter apple juice.

Smell: Yeasty, slightly sweet and spicy.

Taste: Subtle sweet bread falls into wheat mash. Almost no bitterness to be seen.

Mouthfeel: Thick and foamy.

Overall: Delicious and easy to drink. Just be careful of a mess.

If you want to try a really tasty hefeweizen that packs a bold fruity taste alongside some bold clove notes your not going to find it here folks. This is just another average watered down tasting hefeweizen. Im quite the fan of the Ayinger Oktoberfest, but there hefeweizen needs some more work. C (75-79)

L- Pours a hazy honey yellow hue topped by a 1/2 foamy white cap. Fair retention with light lacing.

S- Lemon peel and cloves, backed up with light wheat malt.

T- Wheat malt, a touch of cloves, with a very nice citrus tang. Incredibly refreshing!

F- Medium body with moderate carbonation

O- I consider myself to be fairly well travelled in the land of German Hefeweizens, but this brew was really something special. Instead of the typical banana phenols you usually get with a Hefe, here you get slapped with a citrus tang that is incredibly refreshing. Two thumbs up from this guy! Definitely will be picking up a lot more of this stuff in the future.

Trying to work my way through all the typical german offerings of wheat beers. Ayinger ticked the box!

Very light straw yellow color with a hint of haze. Nice foamy head yielded from a very conservative pour into my BA Founding Subscriber Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Smells of light citrus zest, clove, hint of wheat malt.

Taste is a good mix of lightly tangy wheat malt, with clove phenolics typical of the style.

Medium light body. Beer feels slightly under carbonated for the style.

Over all this is a solid german wheat beer. Certainly better than most american interpretations of the style. Body, carbonation feel a little light for the style. Color and haziness seems to be too clear for the style too. Not a bad beer by any means, but not towards the top of what's available.

March 10th, 2015 - I have another Ayinger up to bat tonight, and based on the quality of the Urweisse I'm very excited to give the Brauweisse a try. From bottle to glass, it gives a thick lapping sort of sound, and fills the glass with a thick, soupy brew, and a sizeable head on top. The aroma is nice and spritzy, with lemon and lime, and enough carbonation to tickle the nostrils on every swoop into the brew's atmosphere. The palate is also light and fuzzy, with more of a lemon sheen and a short aftertaste - something like a shandy. Refreshing, but not so sweet as a shandy, this could rival other options as an after dinner treat.
