Ayinger Ur-Weisse

BAVARIAN DUNKEL WHEAT BEER
Ayinger Ur-Weisse


Dunkel, or “dark,” is a reference to both a beer’s color and the color of the malts used to make them. A specialty of the Bavarian region, Dunkelweizen combines pale wheat malt with darker barley malt for color and flavor. Ayinger’s Ur-Weisse exemplifies the style’s platonic ideal — smooth, rich and complex, without being the least bit heavy. Cloudy with bready-tasting yeast sediment, the beer showcases a brilliant russet-gold hue under a fluffy white head. Lush fruity flavors result from a unique strain of ale yeast, marking the beer with aromas of caramelized bananas, plums and cloves.

Price: $3.50 (16 oz.)
