Ayinger

Brauweisse

Pale color, hazy; with a huge rocky head. Inviting and perhaps a bit tart in palate, this is “brut” beer with a delicious, smooth body from a grist bill of about 60% wheat. Flavor and aroma show the characteristic Ayinger elegance and perfect balance. Finishes with a subtle spicy, fruity note from a traditional Bavarian weissebier yeast strain – some tasters find they are reminded of cloves or ripe banana.
