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.

This is decent; looked good from the pour, with a bronze murkiness, large head and very wheaty aroma. There was something however, that didn’t taste right to me, perhaps just too sweet, perhaps too much apple. The Brau-Weisse is far superior.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Nose: LOTS of bubblegum with small hints of banana, no cloves to speak of. Pour is a cloudy red-brown with disappating off-white fluffy head. Hints of chocolate, wheat, plummy malt, and banana in the flavor, with a sticky lip-smacking finish. Somehow manages to be cloying and bland at the same time. Okay, but the helles-weisse is better.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - APR 22, 2004
Very big foamy head, copper coloration. Apple and white wine in the aroma and taste. Best Hefe I have had.

TChrome (1417) - Bedford, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2004
Fine appearing brew. Lightly cloudy copper color with massive off white head that is retained. Aroma is wonderful and akin to Celebrator, nicely malty and nutty with a bit of toffee. Flavor is delicious. Wheat flavor, some light banana, bit of apple juice a dash of spice and a clean dry finish. Man am I glad spring is here. I am love the Hefe's.

Aurelius (4108) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
This is an interesting brew. It distinctly smells like fried plantain -- banana and char smoke. Hazy, muddy beer with some green tones. Very cool cap redeems the appearance rating. Sweet, a bit smoky, like watery brown sugar light body, residual sweetness. Can't taste the alcohol. Some phenols in the finish. I fear that I could drink a lot of this in short order. Has gentle homebrew qualities.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
A Hefe done right. Murky, dark golden appearance with a decent sized head and lacing. Aroma of bubble gum and yeast. Crisp muted citrus flavor with some bubble gum notes and a velvety mouthfeel make this a winner. 5.8% alcohol hidden extremely well.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2004
Great big light tan head which lasts for a while. Decent carbonation. Grassy/compost aroma with a touch of spices. Color is a slightly cloudy medium orange. Flavor is a little vinegary (sp). Crisp and fruity but with a sour vinegar kick. Slight bitterness in the finish and pretty clean and smooth. A decent wheat with a kick.

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2004 Bottled (from weizen class)
Hazy brown/orange color. Big foamy white head. Typical hefeweizen banana aroma mixed with hints of smoke. Banana taste is also there but roasted malt dominates the palate. More crisp than sweet. Fresh but thin. (7/4/6/3/12 3.2)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 12/2004)
Hazy nut brown, rocky brown head. Sweet grilled banana aroma. Refreshing with citron and a hint of apple flavor. Well-done Ayinger. (6/4/6/4/14 3.4)
