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 a really nice style I must say. Poured a light brown with a thick white head. Very good head retention. Aroma had cloves, malts, banana, wheat and some caramel. Taste had roasted banana, wheat citrus and tea. Very strong tart banana aftertaste. Nice Dunkelweizen.

Brown, with brown head. Bananas in the flavour. Malty fruity finish. Nice Dunkelweizen. Quite complex and blanced well.

A full bodied hefeweizen. Dark brown with a very large cream colored head. Powerful wheat aroma. Wheat, citrus, banana, and herbs in the flavor. Good.

DocLock (8529) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Bottle from Peace St. Market, Raleigh, NC. Dark straw pour, with combined aromas and tastes of caramel malt, toffee, banana, cloves, and hops. More fruit as it finishes. Nicely done, and another winner from Ayinger.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Multi-colored fall leaves with a large and lasting head of white foam. Lovely caramel and toffee aromas with hints of bubble gum, clove, banana, apple, spruce, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is very rich, unlike most other Dunkelweizens I’ve tasted. Peanut butter and chocolate, with hints of peppers, which leads into a finish full of bubble gum, banana, fruit and other various yeast attributes. A very good beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a fluffy orangy white head. Minimal lacing.
Aroma is big on cooked bananas, a little wheat, some spice.
Flavor is fruity with a spicy backbone, a little bread.

bbrock81 (312) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Aroma of herbs and spices, with some citrus, soft fruitiness, and a musty yeast elemnt. Appearance is an almost clear medium amber, the color of unpolished copper. The flavor echoes the aroma, but the fruitiness comes ahead of the spice this time, and the wheat and malt take predominance. The palate is wonderfully full and thick, with carbonation that starts out a little heavy but pulls back to a nice medium fairly quickly. This is a very complex beer, one that is not meant for mindlessly drinking but for taking your time and appreciating the interplay of flavors. A very nice beer.

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2005
17 oz. bottle into weizen glass, Crescent Moon Ale House, Omaha NE. Hazy but mostly clear brownish yellow orange; sizable fluffy off-white head that is mostly lasting with a thick, sliding lacing on the side of the glass. Lots of visible carbonation cascading up the glass. Ruby tones to the color in the light. Smells of sweat, orange peel, lemon zest, spices, bread and yeast. Same wheaty malt and creamy dark malt flavors as Aventinus with some orange and mango acidity. Somewhat biting carbonation at first, mellows after a while. Musty malt backbone gives great body, which is accented by barely noticable European hops with no bittering influence. Finish is malty and nicely acidic. This almost tastes "warm" and ciderish due to the spicy flavors: nutmeg, cinnamon, corriander, black peppercorn. Sour apple flavors lurk underneath everything as well. Wonderfully complex flavor; perfect crisp yet medium to full bodied mouthfeel. I liked it a lot.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle: Brownish golden, not as cloudy as the Brau, mediocre pillowy off-white head, quickly settles, decent lacing, light carbonation.   Bready, wheaty, cloves, soft banana, but no citrus unlike its cousin.   Remains bready on the tongue, wheaty, but also has a smokey/charred wood quality to it.   Very clean, fairly big bodied with a well rounded mouthfeel.   The breadiness and clove aspect linger well beyond the finish.   Tasty, but not as tasty as the Brau!
