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!

Appearance: A bit cloudy, golden. Light, reddish orange.
Smell: Light bread and honey.
Taste: Light bread and honey. Banana.
Mouthfeel: Quite carbonated.

This is a good brew. The taste and smell compliment each other. It's a warm, bready, honey taste. Not terribly exciting, but very enjoyable. I would drink this again.

Cloudy, golden apple cider appearance with a nice white, single finger head that dissipates quickly. Spicy apple aroma but subdued. Nicely balanced, malt forward taste with a bit of dry bite towards the end.. faint hops. Medium-high carbonation. A nice experience for my first Dunkel. I will have to try more!

Poured from a 1 liter bottle. This beer has a nice one finger head that lingers on for quite some time. The color of this beer is a really nice, slightly reddish amber color. It is not fully opaque, but when held up to the light really nicely shows off its great burnt-auburn haze.

The typical banana nose is here, but it is fairly subdued. More dominant is an almost spiciness, perhaps nutmeg or some other warmth-inspiring ester. It is quite lovely, very complex and inviting.

This thing has some serious mouthfeel! I almost want to chew it. The taste is very yeasty, but in a smooth way. The carbonation gives the end of the taste an almost peppery quality.

Definitely a beer I will be buying again, especially considering the pricepoint. I have not had too many Dunkelweizens, but this is a very good beer.
