This style is my favorite and for me, Ayinger Ur-weisse is the standard which all other dunkelweizen beers are compared to. The caramel rich, fruity aroma and taste is refreshing, precisely balanced and always delicious. Recently at a Total Wine Belgian Beer Class a participant commented that this beer as his favorite "Belgian Beer". The young instructor of the class immediately corrected him "that is a Bavarian Beer, but is is excellent". A pity that more American craft beers do not attempt to imitate Bavarian beers like Ayinger. My only wish is that Ayinger keg beer would be available in the US.

Look is lsightly hazy golden orange, frothy off-white head. Smell is banana, clove, wheat, chalky vanilla, and a hard to place sweet smell that perfectly melds with the banana. Slightly roasted banana, caramel, light clove and floral notes. Wheaty, dry, and soft.

Fantastic tasting at a reasonable price.

Bottled served in a weizen glass

A - Pale amber with 1 finger white head with good retention and nice lacing

S - clove, banana, wheat

T - nice notes that follow the nose, very wheaty beer with good fruit, clove, spice to compliment the bready body

M - Light bodied, moderate carbonation

O - A good complex summer beer, or great with a beef entree.

I paid $2.89 for this and I already know I practically stole it. Poured into a snifter (Didn't feel like bringing out the Weizen glass).

I would like to note that this cap is absolutely beautiful. A nice road between a few buildings and some sort of tower (matching the label). World class precision for sure!

A - A light amber that looks almost as a polluted gold. A nice sized pale head sits atop the body. Poor retention and lacing.

S - Cloves, banana and bubblegum explode on my nose. I can also detect some wheat which adds some character. Just another great nose from Ayinger.

T - Wow this is a fantastic beer! Lots of soft flavors that coat the palette and refrain from overwhelming. Follows the nose perfectly with incredible smoothness. Rich fruits, ample spice and wheat blend for a fantastic experience. Bravo!

M - Big carbonation adds to the drinkability here. Super smooth with soft pleasures coating the palette.

O - I feel as if I have committed a crime buying this beer at such a price. I can say without doubt that I will be revisiting this on a regular basis.

Only 3.00 for 500ml of this world class beer!

Dark amber just below the off white head (four fingers at pour, slow reduction). Light amber at the bottom. Cloudy in appearance, mild carbonation.

Smells: Citrus and banana

Taste: Banana, bready malt, orange, and booze

Mouthfeel: perfect!

Overall, I'm having this beer again. This is a brilliant product from a brilliant brewery!!
