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!

Poured from a bottle into an Erdinger weissbier glass. The pour is a dank, dingy orange with a massive head that doesn't last as long as it should. On the nose I get lots of spicy phenols and fruity esters as well as some tart lemon notes as well.

The beer has a light-medium body and a wonderfully refreshing flavor. No real hop character found. It is sweet and bready up front, like fresh toast with honey. Then, it gets slightly fruity towards the back of the palate as flavors of lemon, tea, and peppery clove flavors come in. There is a faint tartness on the finish. All this is supported by a nice level of carbonation. Even though the bloom dies off prematurely, the beer doesn't feel dead on the palate.

Overall, a delicious beer with a flavor nicely balanced between fruity, bready, and tart. I think it's a really great example of a dark weizen. It's hard to find flaws with the true German examples of this style. They're just so tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink I honestly don't know why I even bother reviewing them.

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.
