500ml bottle into a weizen glass.

Pours a couldy brownish-orange with a one finger fluffy white head. Great head retention but really no lacing at all.

Aroma is the usual banana and spice notes but there is an extra touch of citrus in there that I was not expecting. A touch of caramel in the nose helps mix things up a bit.

The flavor has strong bubblegum and banana notes with some caramel lingering underneath. There are more subtle hints of spices in the way of coriander and some orange peel but i believe it is from the yeast. Alcohol is completely hidden and other than a fuller mouthfeel, there is no way to tell that this is stronger than a typical hefe.

Overall, I really love this beer! There is a real richness from the aroma and flavor along with very well-hidden alcohol. One to work into the regular rotation.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a large foamy head. Aroma of bananas, fruity sweetness, spice and yeast. Taste follows with banana, clove, fruity sweetness and spices. Mild bitterness and the finish is a bit sticky. medium body, smooth and flavorful. A well balanced beer with no hint of the 7.1% ABV. Enjoyable beer from a quality German brewery.

Pours a little cloudy yellow with rockin white head. Smells of bubblegum with supportive banana and a touch of clove. Tastes of sweet cotton candy with doughy wheat undertones. Mostly sweet tasting with medium fullness. Pairs excellent with a Weeping Radish brat, homemade sauerkraut and some self-made potatoe fries from a skillet. Easily drinkable and great treat for the colder temps. Floral hop aroma. Alcohol seems mostly nonexistent. Perfect liquid candy treat.

Kinda makes me think of a German saison. The character of the sweetness very much reminds me of Belgian sugars. There's a lot of very ripe pear flavor going on in here, as well as some golden delicious apple and green grape. The hop character is just enough to keep things interesting and slightly tangy.
Ayinger's doppelbock gets the lion's share of the attention from this brewery but this stuff is easily as good for its style. I would think that this one would be an even better crowd pleaser. This is one of those beers that, when confronted with someone who says "I don't like beer" I would have him/her try. Well balanced and easy to drink, I'd have to have a pretty specific beer craving in order to not want to drink this beer.
