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.

Poured out of a 16.9 oz bottle into my Ayinger logo weizen glass. This beer pours a cloudy dark golden color, with an off-white fluffy head that is initially well over an inch thick when poured. Settles to a good solid 1/2 inch of foam sitting on top of the glass that eventually setles to 1/4 inch. Pretty good lacing Fairly potent aromas of bready malt, banana, and clove are all certainly present. The taste pretty much follows suit to what the aromas are, sweet bready malt with hints of caramel, followed by banana and spicy clove. Perhaps a hint of toffee on the back end of the tongue. They really nailed the flavor profile for what a beer of this style is supposed to have! Has a nice crisp, smooth, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Easy to drink in the way a beer like this should be. Excellent!

a: This was a murky, muddy wheat color. It poured with a medium sized, fizzy head that faded with very little lace.

s: Beautiful hefe aromas of bananas, cloves, and bubblegum complimented by a hint of toffee.

t: Mirrors the smell, only a bit better. A wonderful hefe accented by some toffee and hints of cocoa.

m: Big and chewy.

o: Awesome example of a style I don't get enough of.
