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.

Wheat, yeast and citrus aroma. Cloudy peach colour, huge creamy head. Great wheat flavour, good bitterness. Nice mouthfeel, lots of carbonation. Very good.

A nice dunkelweisse. Typical bananas, cloves, and spice. Good balance and very smooth. Ayinger does a good job, and this is one of my favorite dunkels.

Okay, this beer has a nice light amber color to it and slight aroma. The head is a medium tan, but it didnít hold, but I donít know how long it had been on the shelf. Interesting flavor with a slight tang to it.

I must say that I am surprised that ratings arenít higher for this. I thought it was a phenominal wheat, possibly the best Iíve had. The bread of the earth taste hits the tongue and subtle hops and cloves gives it a beautiful finish. A better malt character gives this beer a greater roundness that most wheats just donít have. This is not my favorite style but I was very impressed by this beer.

Pours an off-amber with a decent head and some yeast floaties, not quite as dunkel as Iíd like. Nose is great--bananas and spice cake. Flavor is a bit disappointing though: some of the banana/spiciness comes through, but itís overridden by a tart sweetness.

This was my first ídarkí wheat beer. I was pretty impressed at the flavor it had. Amber in color. Signature wheaty aromas (banana fruity). Large head white head. I usually like my wheat beers colder than other beers, but this one was very nice as it warmed. The flavors became more complex. The beer tasted like a typical wheat beer some caramel/chocolately tones. Good carbonation. I was fairly satisfied with this beer.

A dark and solid wheat dunkel from Ayinger. Iíd call this beer middle-of-the-pack for a German dark wheat. I found the entire Ayinger line-up at a beer store in Brooklyn and am a very happy man.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2002
Clear amber color, the head beige, large, frothy, lace in sheets to coat the glass. Nose?, malt, yeast, earthy and aromatic, front? sweet, top?, medium, finish? dry, lightly acidic, touch of hops, moderate to light carbonation, all in all a very drinkable beer.

Thick white head which dissipated quickly. Aroma of spicy bananas. Spicy flavor which turns to a fruity, almost candylike, finish. Not at all what I expected.
