Ayinger Urweisse

From the Brewery: 001 002

“‘The union of wheaty freshness and dark malt often produces a fullness of taste and complexity’, explains the world-famous English beer commentator Michael Jackson.
This also applies to the Ayinger Ur-Weisse, which is a strong amber-colored, yeast cloudy wheat beer. The beer is strong with the first taste and malty in aroma. The top-fermented, yeasty taste sensation is unmistakable. This beer is rich in sparkle and has just a touch of a special bitter quality. The fruity, malty mild aroma will have you won over immediately!” 5.8% ABV

The Pour: 003

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into my nonic (I know…I need a proper wheat beer glass). The color is hazy brownish-orange. The head is nearly white and foamy, settling quickly. Little lacing is left on the glass.

The Nose: 004

Sweet smelling, with some dark fruit malts, nutmeg/banana spice, and bready yeast.

The Mouth: 005

Medium-thick bodied, very rich mouthfeel going down, finishing with some bitter harshness. The flavor begins pretty well in line with the nose, and finishes dry. The aftertaste transforms into a slightly salty, bread/cracker grain quality.

Final Thoughts: 006

Another good one from Ayinger. Much like their Celebrator, the flavors offered in this brew are very well-rounded and come together skillfully. The sweet-to-salty transformation on the palate is very enjoyable. Not being very experienced with wheat beers, I have little to compare to in the style. That being said, I found the flavor profile to be quite to my liking. 8/10

    i recently tried the Ayinger Bräu Weisse. This was definitely one of the best hefeweizens I’ve had and it was only about $4. If you like this style, I would recommend checking it out. You can read my review at http://headoverbeers.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/ayinger/ if you’re interested.
