Poured from a pint bottle into a weizen glass in late 2013.
A: Large, fluffy head. Beautiful caramel color.
S: Banana, wheat.
T: Banana, wheat, some caramel and banana bread crust sweetness. Delicious.
M: Creamy smooth.
O: I loved this one. The banana flavor was not overwhelming, but nicely balanced. It had a bit more malt flavor than a regular hef. This is my favorite dunkel. ordybill (1805) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015

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. iamqueensblvd (247) - , Iowa, USA - OCT 19, 2009
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. cmc619 (501) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2011
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 I’m 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. I’m not a big dunkel weisse fan, but I found this dunkel to be the best tasting dunkel by far. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 2, 2005
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. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2008
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.
