Golden coloured, hazy beer poured into a wheat beer glass with hints of cloves, banana, with a touch of citrus and coriander. Smooth, wheat taste. The hints of banana and cloves are upfront, with a smooth semi-sweet aftertaste.

Every Ayinger beer I've tried has impressed me. I find myself torn between naming them or Weihenstephaner as my favorite brewery. I enjoyed the simple, summery taste of this beer. While it is unfiltered, it is still light tasting and doesn't weigh me down. Great beer for a summer evening!

Pours a fizzy bubbly airy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly with decent lacing, hazy golden wheat colored beer.

Nose is like a pure Bavarian hefe, good version too, lots of wheat, light airy juicy malt, hint of typical spices like coriander and very light clove, bit of orange citrus, fairly effervescent.

Taste is light feeling, wheat a plenty, little watery malt although it's meant to be lighter, fluffy effervescent wheat and malt, juicy too. Typical hefe flavors, light spices coriander and clove like, with a little bitterness from the spices, and the citrus almost orange juice like, and some fruitiness like a lager. Finish is sticky and not as dry as I thought it would be, lingering wheat and citrus as well as spices.

Mouth is lighter bodied, fluffy and lots of carb.

Overall mixed, it has its moments as a great hefe but other moments it's not as good as I would have expected. I feel this would be much better fresh in Germany or on draft.

The beer has an orange-golden appearance, with a huge, well-retained head. The aroma, as expected, brings cloves and bananas (the last very well pronounced).

The medium, hazy body emanates bananas, and is very refreshing. The hops are discrete, and the sip goes smoothly, with a fast aftertaste. In the aftertaste, we are reminded of the very discrete hop presence in this brew.
