Ayinger Weizen-Bock (Germany)
This incredible winter seasonal Beer is a pale (Helles) style Weizen-Bock. This Weisse-Bier is a stronger version of their classic Braü Weisse designed to fortify the Beer lover in the cold winter months. The Weizen-Bock sub-style of is a relatively rare Weizen and Beer drinkers should be aware that this packs a bigger punch (7.1% abv) than their classic Brauweisse. Sip it slow – it's delicious.
Ayinger has been producing incomparable Beers for more than 130 years. The brewery sits in the small, 1,200 year-old village of Aying just 25 kilometers to the southeast of Munich. This is a taste of Bavaria in the glass.
Deep, golden color with a dense haze and generous white head that lasts for the entire Beer. The nose reveals classic hefe-weizen notes with a dense fruit and spice driven core, fresh baked bread, and accents of tropical fruit. The palate echoes the nose delivering richness with ideal balance, vibrancy, and length. Notes of citrus, clove, ginger, and toasted grain mingle seamlessly. This is a big Beer but it is also perfectly balanced and amazingly refreshing considering its weight.
How to Serve
Serve chilled, but not too cold, in a classic Bavarian Weizen glass. Skip the fruit. Enjoy with smoked cheese and sausages.
