5.1% ABV
Brauerei Aying, Franz Insel Kammer KG, Aying, Germany
16.9 oz bottleServed in St. Bernardus chalice glass
No date on bottle
Reviewed on 1/25/13

This hefeweizen pours an effervescent hazy gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.  Nice lacing.

Smell consists of wheat, yeast, banana, hops, malt, bread, slight spice, citrus.

Taste consists of wheat, hops, banana, citrus, mild clove, bread, biscuit, malt, slight yeast.

Mouthfeel is smooth, dry on the back end, and with a good strand of earthiness.

Overall, this is a tasty hefeweizen with a nice profile of flavors and a good overall mellowness.  Comes across quite fresh and the flavor are almost perfectly integrated.  As far as this style goes, it ranks well with Weihenstephaner.  Super easy to drink.

Score: 94
