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.

Ernest (6258) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially large, creamy/frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana/gum/marshmallow, hint of pepper. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Quite the banana-candy bomb...can’t say it’s unpleasant, but more malt and hop presence would help a lot, as would stronger pepper or clove phenols. In the mouth it’s quite sweet...not enough tartness to clean things up. It’s a "rich" example I suppose but it’s too sweet and banana-heavy to be a winner.

Hazy ot quite copper. Suspended yeast particles throughout with nice head. Nose of bananas, spices and maybe apple. Soft, lively and almost creamy in the mouth. Flavors of cloves,spice,apples, and yeast. Maybe a tad too sweet? Pretty good and quite quaffable.

beerstop (173) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - FEB 18, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 Nice cloudy copperish brown appearance. Snow white head that stayed around for the duration. Body a little less that medium with high carbonation. A little light on the palate. Fruity, spicy flavor with hint of clove. Very drinkable and enjoyable beer. Almost as good as Aventinus.

I wasn’t terribly fond of the nose and taste of fermented apple juice, espically not with a wheat beer. Way too carbonated.

nose of apple, and spices, color is medium brown, cloudy, sweet flavor, sweet finish of spices, I enjoyed this beer, although I’m not very familiar with this style.

The first thing I noticed after the pour was the great head that stayed with the beer for a while. It was very clear for a wheat, which was unexpected. The aroma was very fruity as was the flavor with a very dry finish. It had a lot of body in the flavor, but the carbonation overpowered it in my opinion. It was a good beer, but I have had better. By the way, I drank this while putting up our family Christmas tree this year, so an early Merry Christmas to you all. (Yeah, I had some SN Celebration Ale too...mmmmmm)

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 29, 2001
Sort of like a combination bock-weiss beer, and sort of successful. Nice balance of malt and hops, but somewhat undermined by a serious carbonation issue. This ain’t 7up, guys! Smooth it out!

A nice darker weiss. lot of natural fruit flavors and aromas. strikes a very good malt/wheat balance.

Decent head and faint barley-wine-like aroma. Layered when poured. Quite dark for this style, almost green. Too much malt but generally respectable; your call.
