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!

Dring the pour i couldn't help noticing how massively carbd this beer is.
A handsome looking brew with a hazy amber body and a surprizing small beige white head.
The aroma is more along the lines of barley malts and not the wheat we expext in a good weisse. Some evidence of yeasty ester giving a sutle smell.
I must agree with others in that this is balanced more towards barley malts. Wheat malts that characterize most weisse is quite lean. I also say that this baby is quite sweet. A tart sweetness. Cloves weave in and out of the sweetness.
Drinks soft and sweet despite all the carbonation.
A good beer I much enjoyed.

A: Rich in tannin color, it pours a luxurious two-finger head in my tulip glass, which does dissipate quickly. Lacing is non-existent.

S: Hints of ether, light cumin, and bready malt come to me. Noticeable banana and yeast are quite apparent, too. This is what a Dunkel should always smell like.

T: Bananas Foster, herbal spice, clove, and extra-sweet caramel--this is a knock-out. There's a reason this beer was instrumental in helping to begin my love for good beer.

M: Rich, low-hanging acidity that leaves a bready aftertaste makes this a smooth finish.

O: I've always loved this beer, and nothing has changed. It's a beautiful and affordable experience for the beer newbie and aficionado alike.
