Ayinger Brau-Weisse and Brewing a Hefeweizen

We have been having fun around the brewery!  Style of the month at my local homebrew club was wheat and rye beers.  So why not brew a Hefeweizen?  After all it is hot as hell and Hefe's are great on a warm day!  So that is exactly what we did!

As my strick water was pre heating to attain my 152*F 60 minute mash, I decided to enjoy a beer and offer a review.  Ayinger Brau-Weisse which is one of the most authictic Hefeweizen's you can get.  This comes strait from Aying Germany thanks to Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer Brewery.

Got a bit excited on my pour!

The Hefeweizen pours smoothly into my pint glass, with about 3" of fluffy white head, due to my pouring to fast! [eerrr Rookie mistake, oh well]  The appearance of this ale is honey, slightly light copper in color, and hazy/cloudy.  The aroma is dominated by wonderful aromas of bananas and clove.  The flavor is smooth, the yeasty charactor compliments the banannas and clove perfectly.  The carbonation is crisp, and wonderful!  The finish has some slight spice, and leaves you wanting another sip!  This personifies authentic Hefeweizen.

If you are interested in what a truly refreshing, true to style, authentic wheat beer tastes like this one is for you!

Drink like a GERMAN!!! CHEERS!!!
