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

Serving Type: 2 11.2 oz. bottles poured in to a weizen glass.

Appearance (4.5): Un-filtered, hazy and slight carbonation. Nice head retention.

Smell (4.5): Floral, with banana.

Taste (4.5): Wonderful.

Mouthfeel (4.5): Creamy, slight carbonation feel.

Overall (4.5): I am loving Ayinger beers in general, I feel like they put a lot of work in to the "cleanliness" and quality of their beers. Their brau-weisse is no exception. I want to give it some fives but I feel like I don't know enough about hefeweizens or beer in general, or have enough experience to give that.

tall .5 L pour. massive, billowy, beautiful head. god bless those germans! hazy (understatement), thick, sediment-filled, thick, golden pour.
smell is very rich, very floral. used to be my favorite style but just got too rich for me. also a reason why i'm coming back to germany from the belgiums...
taste is also very rich and floral. too rich for my liking lately, but this is still a superior (commercial) company which produces excellent quality brews.
mouthfeel is thick also. there is carbonation in there, but it is hidden due to the thick sediment.
overall, excellent. head thins, but remains creamy. the beer is filling and satisfying, like a meal. i can see the heartiness being very satisfying, especially when the season cools as it is now, but i'm still wanting that abv before i get TOO filled up. i guess i'm just a lush. forgive me.

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

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of yeast, spices, bananas, wheat and some breadiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a yeast, spices (mainly cloves), banana, beady notes and wheat malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Refreshing and flavorful.
