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.

TBone (12321) - 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)

A real smacker. I mean that in a good way - smack, smack, like it's tasty, you know. It is a fine competitor with the Ayinger Brau-Weisse. It's funny how Ayinger, one of the best breweries in the world, seems to compete with itself. This pours a beautiful orangish-amber colour. The taste is crisp and yeasty, refreshing and complicated, simple and intriguing. Truly a fine brew.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Pours darker than any weisse I've had so far. Head dissipates quickly, but enough remains to be attractive. Strong malt aroma with some wheat evident. Interesting taste. Strong malt/wheat taste up front. Some bananna, bread, yeast maybe pear come at me the strongest before the finish. Finish is clean. A surpsingly complex weiss. Damn near as good as weihenstephaner in my opinion.

Ayinger equals perfection. This beer has the perfect aroma for a dunkel weisse, absolutely perfect. Pours a wonderfully vibrant shade of reddish brown. Good sized head that grows with consecutive pours, very nice. Great mouthfeel as well, which kind of surprised me considering Ayinger's other selections which seem to have a bit of a bite to them. Great beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2004
This is just how I expect a German wheat to taste. This is definitely not one to disappoint on the palate. Taste is crisp and clean with a lingering sour bite on the tongue. Just the right flavor of roasted malts with a bit of tangy nuttiness, fresh bread aroma and a solid malt backbone make this very complete.

SpringsLicker (3108) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Good classic HefeWeizen beer. Hazy deep yellow color and a stiff head. The aromas were a little subdued, but these beers don't age well, so I suspect a fresher sample would score higher. The banana/ wheat aroma is there, but very slight from what I would expect. Refreshing and somewhat filling. A good Summer beer.

GermanBrews76 (678) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 3, 2004
reddiosh opaque, rusty brown. Huge, thick white head. Ester qualities emerge immediately and prevalently. Citrucy and light for an Ur. MAlty and rich. a very lively palate brings on some toasty malt character and subdued fruitiness and hop presence. somewhat noticeable alcohol on finish brings out the phenolitic quality. Light and refreshing with a solid alcohol punch, I think its a good summer ur-weisse.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2004
Hazy light amber color, brown hue; fine perlage, giant head. Aroma mixed of spices, wheat, vanilla, paper, banana and light apples. Good mouthfeel, some sweetness, later is spicy and lightly fruity (banana). Not a strong character, but quite drinkable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2011 I am fond of this beer but tend to gravitate towards their Brau Weiss more. +++ Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle. The beer pours tan color - very opaque. Has a large tan head that slowly dissipates. There is a mild sour-sweet aroma. The taste is sweetish with a heavy wheat flavor. There is a bready, wheat taste that lingers on the palate. A very nice Dunkelweizen.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Hazy dark brown color with a large white head with large bubbles and sticky lacing. The aroma has a wonderfully caramelly sweet malt body with a light hop balance. Notes of fig & pear with the banana/clove german hefe esters. The flavor is creamy with lots of apples and yeast notes. This is a tasty hefe with some solid flavors, just seems a little dumbed down than what was intended though.
