Ayinger Ur-Weisse (DE) - Dunkelweizen - 5.8% - 4.4/5
On tap at Ayinger Braustuberl, Aying, august 2014. (also bottled, right now)
Dark orange to hazelnut color, obviously cloudy, enormous white head, magnificent. Not dark as other dunklers.
Quite perfumed, not excessively though.
Intense weizen aroma (wheat), sugary malts, fuity and spicy. Banana, peach, yellow fruits with hints of lemon. Doughy yeast, yet not too invading. Alcohol reminded me of whiteboard marker, thus bottled i didn’t find this. Some grassy hops comes to say hello thru the finish.
Articulated fruity taste, sweetish, slightly sour, full bodied, long finish with an amaretto/almond thing, very tasty. Proper carbonation, dusty to creamy texture, very fluffy. Excellent. WOW, the finish is just superb, sticky, ultra-umami.
Also bottled after 5 months doesn’t lose its freshness. Probably this is THE dunkelweizen, either not really dunkel, it’s a powered up weizen, simple, classic, elegant. A whoppy 4.4 for a classic non-experimental beer? Well, yes. Pick your bags, go to Aying on a nice summer day, sit at their stube and have one of this. You won’t be in need for any Double IPA, Quadrupel or whathever. Just enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber body under a one finger foamy white head that had decent retention. The nose is slightly fruity and estery with a fair amount of yeastiness. A light hint of bubble gum, and a hint of light toasted malt. The flavor is pretty classic, some lightly roasted malt, nice yeastiness, some fruity esters, and seemingly a hint of alcohol on the late finish. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering finish. Pretty classic example of the style, enjoyable.
