Ayinger Urweisse Authentic Bavarian Dark Weizen

This is a classic, quintessential dunkel. It pours a stunning amber-caramel color, with a thick, off-white head that shows good retention and leaves soft lacing behind. Initial scents of banana bread dough, baking spice and roasted malt emanate from the glass and continue through to the full-bodied palate. The mouthfeel is creamy and dense, silky in texture, with attractive flavors of toasted bread, yeasty spice, clove, caramel, brown sugar and just a touch of citrus peel. Despite the richness of the palate, the finish is clean and refreshing, supported by fine yet ample carbonation and just a hint of bitterness on the back. Merchant du Vin. Lauren Buzzeo
