My absolute favorite beer. Pours beautifully. Looks citrusy. When you swallow you taste banana, when you exhale you taste the bread. Just an impressive brew.

The absolute most perfect beer I think I'll ever come across. It's complete on all sides of the beer making the experience entirely satisfying.

Poured from bottle into a weizen glass. It pour a very light yellow color and turns to a burnt orange color as it settles. There's a couple inches of head on it, but settled to about half an inch. It's been poured for 20 minutes and the carbonation is still extremely heavy. It's extremely cloudy and fluffy in apparence.

The smell is like none other. It's distinct in the best of ways. Banana hits you rights in the nostrils with just the tiniest bit of funk. You can smell the cloudiness in the beer right off the bat. It smells fresh, but dense.

The feel of the beer captures the smell and look exactly. It's smooth in your mouth, full bodied, but not weighing you down.

The taste is blissful. Banana is the initial taste, then settles into a nice spice. I get a slight note of white grape. It's the best.

If you haven't tried this beer m, do it. It changes your life.

The foam was almost white, smooth, foamy, non-lacey and stuck around till the end. The smell had a dominate wheat aroma. The Color was a gorgeous bright honey. The taste - excellent - dominate wheat pils taste with hints of a fruity undertone, yet kind of creamy. Mouthfeel - beautifull goin' down. Drinkability - smooth and complex like most other German beers. I recomment it!

This is the beer I judge all others by. As a hefeweizen purist, this is not only my favorite beer without question, but it also represents the best of the breed.

Serving type - Bottle
Preferred consumption type - Ayinger Hefe Glass
Appearance - Golden Blond Beauty, Small White Bubbly Head
Aroma - Fresh Bannana, Mild Spice
Flavor - More Fresh Bannana, mild spice, finishing with more of a Bannana Bread or ripe Bannana Flavor
Texture - light Bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation to allow the flavor to dance across the palate with a silky / near creamy finish.

This is the beer to savor everyday. Remember, Life is Short - Drink Good Beer!
