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.

Damn Ayinger makes it right. Huge flavor, huge aroma, yeasty yet smooth. Give me more.

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.

Tried the beer, botle is nothing special, taste is above average, aroma is not so strong

Super cloudy dark golden yellow color. Arguably the cloudiest beer I’ve ever seen. Everything inside seems to just stand still. The aroma is not like a typical hefe: yeast softness; dark, pungent fruits; an herbal spiciness, not unlike cloves. Orange zest with a prickly spice. Hint of green apple and red apple skins too. The flavor is mashed plums, cinnamon on apple sauce. Bread dough. A definite basement funk to the flavor. Touch of apricot, but not the cloying, sugary kind I hate in beers. Feels juicy and slick on the palate. This is a crowd-pleaser: lots of darkish flavors, but nothing burnt. Lots of sweetish flavors, but nothing saccharine. Beautifully balanced for a very cold autumn evening.

50cl, finally got time to review this. Pours an abundant off white dense head, amber to brown deep cloudy colour, golden reflex. Very nice bready, caramel, crystal malts, very light toasted, fruity esters and yeasty multigrain smell; and wow, that’s complex. Tastes malts at their best, nice fruit/dried fruits, caramel, apple, yeasty, sweet spiced finish; right medium sweetness never overdone, light tartness. (a strüdel in a glass...).Medium to full creamy body, almost lively carbonation but softer than most hefeweizen. Between the top wheat beers and one of my favs, probably the best Ayinger

Very hazy brown color with great wet foam. Ripe bananas, spices, maybe cinnamon. It has that little special something in the aroma. Taste is not as interesting, but very solid. The banana blends in perfectly with the yeasts. The kick which the Bräuweisse has in the finish is not there, but the finish is very pleasant. Refreshing and smooth. Super Dunkelweizen.

Opaque dark orange, off-white lasting lacing foam head. Citrus aroma, although not dominant, cold climate fruits tones also. Light citrus again in taste, fruits again, some bread, a warm taste. (Velp 201411)

This was an enjoyable beer. Pours an amber color with a thick white head. The nose is sweet and can smell the malt. On the palate it's just what is described, hints of fruit and spice. Overall a good beer with complex flavor.

Birra biondo ocra. Due dita di schiuma consistenza panna, duratura e splendida. Aromi di pesche e albicocche, oltre che di miele d’acacia. Sapore di albicocche, fragole ed un po’ di burro mielato. Retrogusto all’albicocca, mentre il finale è secco e maltoso. Buona birra

"this is about as good as it gets. i’ve had this style where it tasted heavily spiced, and harsh. this one is far from that. nice aroma, great head, body, full flavored."

Very malty white beer. Sweet aroma and a small banana aftertaste. Very different lingering aftertaste.
