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.

Pours cloudy with a good thick head. Has a great aroma that screams drink me. Awesome flavor with a hint of bananas. Quite possibly the best Hefe out there.

banana and citrus on the nose with a hint of alcohol. white foamy head barely hangs on. Cloudy amber pour. Absolutely delicious. bread, banana and spice notes. No alcohol taste to speak of. (It is only 5.8). Smooth mouth feel. great fruity notes linger on the palate.

Beauty of a pour as expected from the Bavarian masters. Hazy copper-gold beer adorned with a super creamy, thick, white head. (This went into a Guinness glass out of necessity; wish I had a weizen glass.) Aroma is so delicate and delicious: a perfect blend of banana, bubblegum, and yeast. Outstanding refreshment factor: palate is dead-on balanced. Bubblegum flavor comes through delectably. A bit of lingering spice on the finish. This is one of the beers that got me super fired up for my trip to Germany last year; finally getting to the official review and Iím remembering why. I love Ayinger: probably my favorite German beer. Must visit the brewery next trip.

Re-rate: 6-28-02 I love all of the Ayinger beers and this is no exception. Iím not a big dunkel weisse fan, but I found this dunkel to be the best tasting dunkel by far.

Pours brown with almost no head. Smells of clove, figs, mace, nutmeg. Tastes of allspice, bananas, apple, and peppery. Masterful beer with a thick nearly perfect mouthfeel and a sweet finish.

Ur-weisse has a gorgeous hazy copper color with a huge abundant off white head. It has an attractive aroma of banana, sweet malts and spice. The aroma leads you to a full body of caramel malts rapped around fruity yeast and light spices that finishes slowly. This is a very flavorful dunkelweizen and one of my favorite summertime treats.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 500 ml bottle in Germany picked up at Wasanas. Dark golden color with an off white head.Taste is very spicy. Aroma was top banana even for a Hefe. A superior Hefe, one of my top favorites.

Another great bier coming from Deutschland. A tall blonde fräulein that you just can't pass if you have the chance. Very rich and powerful flavor! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ayinger is the quintessential German Dunkel. The color is brownish-amber with a creamy-tan head. The rich wheat malt provides aromas and flavors of bread, banana, bubble gum, apple, and subtle cloves. Simple but delicous. Donít expect to keep glass of this around for very long.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2010 Complete re-do: The Ayinger is a burnt ornage colored brew - lighter than most other Dunkelweizens. Aroma is nice sweet clove. Flavor is classic banana and clove with a sweet malt finish. Quite refreshing!
