#500 on untappd! Cheers!

Body isnt as dark as I expected, but still just dark enough to be a Dunkel. Looks almost exactly like Schneider Weisse. Head isnt as fluffy as I want either.

Smell is more roasty malt than yeast esters. I do get a hint of banana and sweet clove. Lots of wheat twang as well.

Initially theres just sweet rich roasted wheat. Then comes in a chewy malty banana. Very full bodied and thick for the style. Hints of an estery booze as well. Sweet notes of caramel and toffee flash across the tongue every so often. It really meshes with the banana flavors well.

Although its full bodied, it finishes smooth and clean, like every German beer should.

50cl bottle poured into Weihenstephan Weissbier glass.

BBE May 2012

A- 3 finger creamy white head producing good lacing/retention. The body is a slightly darker shade of cloudy amber/orange classic hefeweizen colour. Reminds of Schneider weiss original.

S- Classic clove with a more fruity quality than expected. Along with the usual hint of banana, some apple and pear is noticeable.

T- Clove and banana up front, with this sweet juicy apple note coming through in the clean light finish.

M- Medium/light body and carbonation. Refreshing but not lifeless/weak bodied.

D- A very tasty weisse. I really liked the more complex fruity notes compared to the more mainstream examples. Retained a good refreshing mouthfeel. Would happily drink on a summers afternoon under the shade of an oak tree.

Ayinger Ur-Weisse has an extremely thick, pillowy, off-white head and cloudy, orange appearance with thin bubble streams. After swishing the bottom third of the bottle, there are numerous gray blobs, which settle at the bottom and a thick, gray, descending cloud. The aroma is of white wheat bread, some banana, and cloves. Taste is similar and one also gets a little bit of bitterness, but that’s minimal. Mouthfeel is medium, and Ayinger Ur-Weisse finishes fairly dry and quite refreshing. This is a good beer.

A: Hazy, unfiltered, honey gold color. Yields a two finger creamy white head. Excellent lacing; leaving sheets down the glass.

S: Wheat and bananas, one may say banana bread. Syrupy honey like sweetness fills the nose. A rich smelling weizen.

T: The expected banana and cloves with a touch of the honey sweetness that comes through the nose.

M: Medium mouthfeel with moderate to high carbonation. Great, easy drinkability.

O: A really good weizen. Great for the weizen style, but I expected something a bit darker being a dunkel. Not upset by any means though.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a golden orange color with a decent white head. Carbonation can be seen.

S: Wheat, cloves, yeast, and a hint of lemon.

T: Starts with wheat then goes into lemon and cloves. The lemon has a bit of tartness. The finish has a hint of grapefruit hops and faint bready malt.

M: Medium with a good amount of carbonation.

O: Nice lighter beer. Has everything you'd expect from a dunkel. Would be great for a fall or spring night.

Appearance - This beer is a beautiful orange-ish amber. It is very hazy and has a soft glow. Thousands of bubbles stream up from the bottom very quickly. There was about a finger and a half of head, tan in color with a very sudsy look. Tight little bubbles.

Smell - Has your classic wheat smell, very clovey and spicy banana. It smells very rich.

Taste - Wow. I like this better than any hef I've ever had. Very malty with a little tartness. A touch more grapefruit and hops on the front of the mouth, with a biscuit/bready finish.

Mouthfeel - excellent. Very sudsy and drier than expected. A bit soapy in texture.

Overall - While I'm not a huge hefeweizen fan, if I'm gonna drink a wheat beer, this is the one!

see you on the next one.
