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.

Medium brown, clody appearance. Mild flavor and smooth finish. Nothing to exciting.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2003 Coudy deep amber color with a nice creamy head and good lacing. Citrusy aroma-oranges. It started sweet and soft on the tongue, and was fruity and slightly acidic, kind of thin. The finish was short and unremarkable. No bottling date that I could see.

MaBeer1972 (1507) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 30, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 Complete re-do: The Ayinger is a burnt ornage colored brew - lighter than most other Dunkelweizens. Aroma is nice sweet clove. Flavor is classic banana and clove with a sweet malt finish. Quite refreshing!

Medium brown, cloudy in appearance. Offwhite head, very large. Flavors of banana, clove, and citrus. A bit on the sour side. Watery mouthfeel.

freekyp (1692) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Cloudy dark brown with light brown, fluffy head. Bready nose. Suprisingly thin bodied. Flavor was even keeled throughout with no dips or climaxes. A nice subdued tartness leaves you wanting more.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2003
An amber color with a white frothy head. The aroma has some spice to it with clove, anise and bubblegum. A touch of sweetness as well. Theh flavor is of banana, fruity with clove...very full of good flavors. A very nice tickling carbonation. Overall a delicious German Wheat.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Straw-orange color, lively carbonation, and slight haze. Aroma of flowers, grass, lemon, and yeast. Some sourness with an orange/lemon flavor and slightly sweet. Seems to lack the complexity that some German Wheats can bring.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2003
A whole lot going on in the aroma here - think cinamon bread - warm with butter.. Yeasty and tangy but with an added sugary sweetness - a good quality dunkel. Only needs more palate.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 This Ayinger offering spills into my stemmed glass a rich, hazy copper colour and forms a billowy off-white head, tall and creamy. Strong yeast by-products dominate the aroma in the form of juicy bananas and sweet bubblegum. Behind that impression can be found woodsy, floral hops and a toasted malt accent. The flavour offers significantly more depth, bringing slightly tangy pecans and sweet, creamy apple butter together initially. At the finish is the soft presence of Prince of Whales tea with honey and softly sweet benne wafers. Pleasantly light notes of caramel appear in the aftertaste. Whereas the aroma is soft and sweet, the flavour brings in a building tanginess for balance. The body is suitably full for the style, not so thin as to feel lacking, nor so thick as to prevent refreshment. The creamy texture and fine, champagne-like carbonation aid in the imminent drinkability of this beer.
