Really dig one of Munich's finest Breweries, but this one is a first for me.
Poured into my Andechs Weizen glass, Augustiner is beautiful to behold. Light banana-golden hay color, light brown hints around the edges, medium carbonation. This brew is capped by a simply spectacular head that is textbook Hefe. Thick, creamy, foamy slowly settling into to lacy pock-marked perfection.
On to aromatics, rich on the banana-clove, orange, sweet candied citrus, a touch of hay-like mustiness, nice Hefe tartness, light peppery esters add into the mix. This gives Weihenstephan run for it's money.
First sip--Sweet, creamy-like banana, apple, bread, orange,pepper, musty, yeast adding a nice twist of spice. This brew begins sweet, creamy, thick and full, ends a bit sweet as well but a light peppery zip and a full blast of clove and perfect carbonation really add a whole level of complexity. This Hefe is quickly becoming one of the best I've had, as I search through the mental files for comparasion. It is surprisingly warming in both the throat and stomach with subsequent sips for a relatively low ABV, the peppery-citrus finish is really a fantastic high point for this brew.
Mouthfeel is perfection. Creamy, sweet, yet tart and biting in one mouthful. What begins as sweet banana-cream ends with clove-pepper orange tartness and spice. The carbonation is perfect. Not too biting at first, yet plays a background role, accenting the flavor at the finish. This beer i light, fresh and tart and full and robust all in one. Milky creamy-and biting? I really can't go on enough about the balance at work here.
It is a shame this is such a rarity, as I believe I had discovered one of the world's great Hefe's. My score reflects my satisfaction and impression of a truly fantastic beer after seemingly no end to the monotony I find sometimes in German brew. Seek this out and drink it! (1,881 characters)

Interesting weissbier. So much peppery, more than many others, but a bit unbalanced in that, maybe lacking a characteristic fruity notes. Overall a pretty decent beer. (167 characters)

Clove and banana, like any good German Wheat should have, tart, with a dry-ish finish, also got a bit of vanilla or something, pretty nice, easy to drink, nothing over the top. Definitely not one of my favoured German whaets but very drinkable anyway, pretty nice stuff. (270 characters)

Typical Bavarian weissbier appearance: orange-amber in color beneath a massive head of rocky bright white foam. Cloudy with yeast. The aroma is typical as well, although I guess you can't say that because there are so many variations... I think of this as being much like Spaten's Franziskaner, clean with a balance of banana and clove over sweetish golden malt. It's perhaps slightly fruity with softly sweet apple, and a delicate hint of citrus - there are no odd-phenolics like burnt plastic or "band-aid", and there's no particularly noticeable tartness other than the citrus edge. The malt is full, and dare I suggest, it has a slightly caramelish edge to it. Medium bodied and gently bristling to the tongue with a bright carbonation. Moderate bitterness, yet dry in the finish. I can't say it's "one of the better ones", but I can say it's one of my favorites! (998 characters)
