BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG / Brauerei Aying
Germany
ayinger-bier.de

Style: Dunkelweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

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!

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: [3.75] Beer is a brownish copper color. It forms a whopping 3+ fingers of head. The head is tight white bubbles that dissipate slowly and leave a think marshmallow fluff of lacing on the glass. The bottle lists the ABV (5.8%). There is no visible date code.

S: [2.50] Herbaceous, pungent banana.

T: [2.25] Follows the nose. More banana

M: [3.50] Not over carbonated. Mediumish feel.

O: [2.50] It has the banana-tastic yeast flavor (that I don't like). This beer is not for me. It highlights one of the flavors I dislike the most in beer. I will pass on this going forward.

From notes taken 03/12/16:

Before sediment is added, very dull and clear copper with golden hues. Light-colored for a Dunkel. After swirling around the last bit in bottle to stir up sediment and adding to glass, incredibly opaque in bulb, still somewhat clear and swirly in the “stem,” with clumps of fines resting at the bottom. Fizzy, but fairly well-retaining, uniform, off-white head. Semi-tart banana, bread, light band-aid, and syrupy sweet aromas. About the same to the palate up front, only some booze and yeast spiciness, and mild funk, cloves and peppercorns toward the back. Medium-bodied, dense but gentle effervescence, and smooth.

pours a very hazy orange color into a typical pint. Very little head and no lacing. Immediately smells like bananas. Initial taste is definitely bananas too and pleasant aftertaste. Definitely a little thicker brew too. Overall I really enjoy this brew and hope to enjoy more in the near future.

Head dissipated fairly quickly, some lacing (draft beer). Nice cloudy appearance, good feel in the mouth. A little expensive but worth it. I will drink it again .
