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 pour this one carefully, and am rewarded with 2 fingers of off-white head over a caramel colored body. The body is translucent and shows some seriously good looking stuff floating around in it. The head dies to a half finger rather quickly, then retains this for a while. It makes a mild attempt at lacing.

Caramel and grain are the main aromas I get. A little yeast and dark fruit compliment. Further exploration brings out grassy hops.

Grainy with a yeast overture. Caramelized brown sugar adds a really nice sweetness to the mix. Grassy finish with a decent spiced blend on the end.

This brew is medium bodied, and smoooth. It goes down nice and refreshing with no residue left behind.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into an 8 ounce sampler. A moderate pour causes the head to froth over. The head is frothy and effervescent, with a light tan color. The beer is a pale amber.

Lots of light fruit in the nose and flavor, with just a touch of hop bitterness. Apple/pear, banana and pungent yeast flavors are readily detectable, but not overpowering. A spicy sweet aftertaste lingers, and is accentuated by the burps. A very easy drinking and unique beer.

I paid only about 3.50 for the bottle, which I consider a bargain, based on its overall quality.

No date that I could find.

A: Pours a hazy, almost dirty looking amber. Tall frothy white head. Good head retention but basically zero lacing.

S: Smells like a typical hefe. Loaded with wheat and bananas. A little bit of spiciness too, cloves I assume. Maybe a hint of grass?

T: Heavy on the wheat and light on the grass. Lots of banana and cloves. Pretty much what you'd expect from the aroma.

M: Medium bodied, soft and smooth.

O: Very nice dunkelweizen. Tastes like a slightly heavier and breadier hefe, which I'm guessing is probably exactly what it is. Very easy drinking.
