Having had this directly after Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel, the former was much better in my opinion. I did not find the Ayinger to have the balanced dark wheat presence like the Weinhenstephaner did.

Pours a slightly amber beer and it's thick and opaque. Oft-white lacing which carries down the glass. Cloves, banana, and tangy burnt orange on the nose. Moderate to rich, full body. Very similar to a straight hefe with a slight orange/cinnamon/and faint chocolate notes. None overwhelming. Finishes with a slightly sweet with a fruity, oft-lemon taste. Another top notch, high quality brew from Ayinger. Tough to find a better German beer from any other brewer.

Appearance- Very dark caramel color with about one inch of head produced.

Aroma- Very sweet aroma consisting mainly of banana and a little spice from the yeast.

Taste- Similar to the nose with banana dominating the flavor along with sweet caramel malt, a little clove spice from the yeast, and very little presence of hops at all.

Feel- Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, and a dry finish with a little lingering malt.

Overall- Pretty good dunkleweizen but not something I'm completely in love with. It hits on all the characteristics you'd expect from a dunkleweizen, but its a just a bit too sweet for me to love it. Definitely would try this again, but having a better balance from the hops to cut down on the sweetness would bump this up a notch for me.

Ayinger Ur-Weisse pours cloudy gold with a persistent 2” pillowy foam collar. It has a little banana and clove on the nose and a banana bread flavor spiced with light clove and lightly sweetened with light kettle sugars. Medium full body and above average carbonation.
