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 heartily into a 0.5l Weizen glass. Nice deep golden color that was accentuated by the frothy and long lasting head. Smell was as expected for a quality German Weizen -- bananas, cloves, but with a further hint of fruitiness that was fully manifested upon tasting. The taste was truly exceptional with the flavors being more developed. I especially enjoyed the almost cola like flavors that the beer imparts. The creamy mouthfeel and well balanced carbonation only furthered the beer drinking experience. This is no ordinary Weizen. Definitely superior to Ayinger's Bräu-Weisse if you prefer a more complex beer.

this poured a slightly hazy deep amber/almond with a nice creamy head and lacing. nose was spicy, roasty, nutty, and toffee-ish. aromas carried through in the well-balanced flavor. minimal hop presence in this one. sessionable, and another nice offering from ayinger.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
egg white head, nice full cloudy formation. Retention is almost acceptable. very hazy, brown/apricot color. Can't see through the haze. Looks like apple cider. No lacing.

Nose:
crackers, bannana, red apple, yeasty.

Taste:
wow, great mouthfeel. Soft on the palate with a twinkle of carbonation at the end. Again, bannana up front which subsides to some apple cider. Not malty or hoppy, just thick fruit. It finishes very well. It gets thin and watery just at the end which is nice to your taste buds.

Notes:
Overall, I am very pleased with this beer. It has nice head/nose/taste, not overly expensive, and not too hard to find. A great introduction to dunkel:)
