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!

Augustiner Bräu Weissbier
bottle @ Augustiner am Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin, DE
,5L for €3,90 at noon on Christmas day 2013

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!
