COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Ayinger Ur-Weisse is an old-fashioned wheat with some fine roasted malt to give it more color and flavor than golden hefe- weisse. It has an immense crown of lovely foam held proudly above a robe of translucent amber. On the palate, malt and yeast predominate, with a delicious balance of fruit and bread-like yeast. The taste is complex, with suggestions of soft fruit, apple, and, in the finish, perhaps, even cloves.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Orange with a metallic hue and massive head that initially cascades like a waterfall but soon settles into a strong and still top. This is smooth and sweet with primarily banana tones. Nice.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Pale white-ish appearance, excellent carbonation and head formation. Malty, yeasty, woody aroma with decent amount of peppery spice. Sweet, soft palate, cloves, apples, light touch of banana bread and some bitterness in the finish.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2004
Most of my hefe experience comes from Widmer, so here goes. This had a bigger body, but more diminished citrus notes. Taste was slightly acidic. Well done but not amazing. Maybe a good session beer, I liked it.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 (Re-rate Oct 2, 2004) Very muddy, dark orange color, large, big-bubbled head that diminishes quickly. Quite pleasant and strong, yeasty and malty banana aroma with some slightly roasted rye bread. The flavor is more sour-acidic than sweet, quite fruity, very yeasty and somewhat warming. Slightly sour and tingly apple juice aftertaste. Medium to full-bodied, but still slightly thin palate with slightly fizzy-foamy carbonation. A nice, balanced, dryish dunkelweizen, that suits the winter season better than summer.

DatFlycat (12) - Los Gatos, California, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Delicious. Thick, woodsy taste with the dominant tone being that of clove (peculiar, in my experience, but pleasant). Fizzy and sweet, a good brew.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Pours orange-brown, with a creamy off-white ring of foam. Sweet banana aroma. Nice banana, and yes, apple in the flavor in addition to tangy flavors. A nice change of pace for the new year.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Bottle pours a hazy brown orange with a nice head. The aroma is yeasty, and not much else. The flavor is yeasty and bread like in the finish with a bit of lingering fruit. The palate is somewhat nice for the flavor. Overall, I prefer the Ayinger Brau Weisse.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 On tap. Orange/brown cloudy with nice large head. Smells yeasty/malty. Sweet malt and yeast flavor. Slight hint of sweet fruit and cloves. Banana really comes out asis warms. Good stuff.

jsquire (3759) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Cloudy orange out of the bottle with a sweet, burnt caramel nose. Dark fruit sweetness with raisen, prune and apricot. Full bodied caramel sweetness with subtle hints of a weizen banana clove spiciness, but mostly sweet.
