look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, bananas, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then a strong banana flavor comes in with a bit of sweetness. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.

500mL into a weizen glass. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow w/ a bright white head, lively carbonation.

Aroma is over-ripe bananas, clove, a little bubblegum.

Taste is sweet and fruity with more banana and clove. Some orange and lemon. No trace of alcohol.

Wheat malt makes for a soft mouthfeel. Carbonation gives it a sharp, almost prickly finish.

Overall I was expecting something a little darker and heaver, but this is so drinkable and smooth I'm not complaining.

I bought this last Friday at the bottle shop near my barber and I have been thinking about this all week while slogging through the work week. Let the weekend commence!

I initially had just over a finger of french vanilla-colored head, but it quickly fell to mere wisps. Color was a cloudy yellowish-orange. Nose had a fruitiness like Juicy Fruit gum and I was becoming intrigued. I do not remember the last time I drank a Weizenbock, but Ayinger is always a solid choice. Mouthfeel was medium and the fruity sweetness made for an easy drink. Too easy as I was through over half the glass before I realized it. At that rate, I will be as drunk as the goat who is toasting me from the label. The finish was sweet, but not cloying and as it warmed, I began to get some alcohol heat coming through. In fact, as it warmed, the mouthfeel became fuller, not creamy, but big and full on the tongue. Note to self (and others) - allow this to warm slightly before consuming.
