Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
“The union of wheaty freshness and dark malt often produces a fullness of taste and complexity”, explains the world-famous English beer commentator Michael Jackson.

This also applies to the Ayinger Urweisse, which is a strong amber-colored, yeast cloudy wheat beer. The beer is strong with the first taste and malty in aroma. The top-fermented, yeasty taste sensation is unmistakable. This beer is rich in sparkle and has just a touch of a special bitter quality. The fruity, malty mild aroma will have you won you over immediately!

i enjoyed this dunkel weizen very much. Poured a hazy copper with a thin white head. Aromas of roasted malts, clove, banana and apple. Tastes much the same except the apple is more pronounced. Medium body, light carbination. I could drink this with some apple pie. Ya that sounds good.

500mL bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Pours a cloudy orangish-brown with two fingers of white head with good retention and some lacing. The pleasant aroma, while not very strong, is of bananas, cloves, yeast, and some bready wheat. Taste is much like the aroma with bananas and cloves dominant over the wheat backbone and pleasant yeast flavors. The bananas are dominant at first but then give way to cloves in the finish. Good mouthfeel with a light-medium body and moderate carbonation as evidenced by the creamy head. Overall this is a very good brew with balanced flavors and at 5.8% ABV I'd say this just fits into my definition of a good session beer.

This was an above average dunkel-weizen, or dark wheat beer. It poured a dark orange/amber colour with an ample head and good lacing. It had aromas of bananas, cloves, and spices. The taste was very wheaty, spicy, and fruity. A nice blend, indeed. The mouthfeel was ultra-creamy and the drinkability was top-notch. One of the better dunkels out there if you ask this BA!
Cheers!,
F.

Impressive creamy head on a muddy red-brown, slightly orange liquid. Thick and smooth lacing.

Very sweet, fruity banana smell

Tart cherries, apples, banana and hint of spice. Smooth wheat finish with plenty of fruit punch to round it out.

Strong carbonation, light to medium body, refreshing and crisp...

Solid dunkel and quite tasty. Refreshing and uplifting, somewhat filling and good with sausage.

Poured into a Erdinger Weisse glass a cloudy light brown color with a big white head, that quickly became a nice white lacing with excellent retention. Nose revealed some banana, clove and apple. Flavors detected include baked bread, juicy fruits and powdered sugar. The body of this beer is relatively light, and prickly on the tongue. This is a very easy Dunkel Weizen to drink. Not my favorite for the style, but still damn good, and worth a try.Rosemary crackers with goat's milk Brie was a nice pairing for this one. Cheers.

Pours a hazy amber with a huge white head that slowly dissipates to a very thin lace. Aromas are banana and clove, with a hint of butterscotch. Flavors are banana bread, spice, citrus and muted caramel with a bready, citrus finish. Rather high carbonation with a light and peppery mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice wheat beer. Delicious.
