Very smooth and balanced. Banana, spicy, rich and complex. No bitter aftertaste. The creamy mouthfeel is partially due to above average carbonation. Definitely worth a taste and a go to brew.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Cloudy golden yellow with a nice initial head and decent lacing. Great clove, nutmeg, and banana smell and taste. Sweet and a bit citrusy. Loved it!

just an exceptional brew.
Hides the abv quite well.
pours a dirty yellow. taste has that typical belgian weisse stuff going on, but with an exponent next to each characteristic. Booms with clove flavors, and orange/lemon notes. Tons of gnarly yeast cake at the bottom. Unfiltered, unabashed greatness. This is a real beer right here. Mouthfeel is chewy, and the aftertaste lingers for what seems like forever. THere's the typical, almost Paulaner-Hefe powdered sugar thang with a lime twist going-on too. SUch a flavorful and wonderful offering. Top 5 beer for me personally.

Pours a very hazy dirty straw color with well over a finger of head. The nose has notes of wheat, funk and cloves. The flavor follows the nose.

The flavors are not as deep and malty as other examples of this style.

L - golden yellow body with thick lingering head
S - banana, citrus, sweet honey notes, biscuity
T - similar to the smell. Banana, citrusy, sweet fruity and bready. Nice maltyness
F - smooth beer with slight carbonation that completes the beer perfectly. Light coat on the palate.
O - I really enjoyed this beer. From the pour to the finish. Really good beer. Looks pretty, taste great and easy sinking. I could drink a lot of these

Picked up a 500 ml bottle from Glendale BevMo in late May for $4.49. No bottling date visible.

Beer poured golden with a nice white head on the initial pour.

Nose is sweet with some citrus and biscuits.

Taste is light citrus and bread balanced nicely once again by the noble hop family.

Mouthfeel is full and very smooth, probably my favorite part of the beer as this is very satisfying.

Overall another awesome Ayinger brew, definitely pick one up if you enjoy lagers!

This beer just looks awesome... beautiful golden colour, and hazy thick, almost chewable. Taste is not overly sweet or overly spiced, just right, really nice.

16 oz. bottle poured into a tall Weihenstephaner Weizen. Dark, murky orange with two fingers of fluffy white head. Visible carbonation and a small amount of sediment. Classic German wheat beer look.

Banana, clove, and spicy yeast on the nose. A bit of alcohol as it warms.

The taste largely follows, with banana, pepper, and orange. Mild bitterness on the backend. Maybe not quite as smooth as Vitus or Aventinus.

Mouthfeel is medium. Creamy but carbonated.

An exemplary German beer, and a top 5 weizenbock.

L: Orange-white brew with a thin white head. Not too shabby in the looks depo.

S: Smells like wort while you're brewing, just pure sweetness and malt. I like it

T: Fantastic. Sweet malt nose, fades into a creamy and spicy ride before rolling into bitterness in the back of the mouth. I literally made an "okay" hand gesture to myself after taking a drink. Superb drinking.

F: Maybe could be thicker, but it's bubbly and delicious so who cares =)

O: Buy this bad boy. I was lucky enough to have found it on sale, so I have no idea what it goes for, but I really like it. It's got that german spiciness to it and the flavors surrounding that are very sweet and non-intrusive. Very very drinkable, like all day drinkable. Cheers to the folks at Ayinger, I love it.
