500ml bottle served into a mug/stein hybrid glass in Berlin, Germany. Reviewed from notes taken in June, 2011.

A: Six finger head of nice cream and thickness, darkened white colour, and good retention. Lovely orange-copper colour.

Sm: Orange citrus ester hops. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Hoppy fruit orange citrus esters ride atop a pleasant wheat body. Nicely complex for the style; it's usually more simple. Built well for the style. Standard ester choices. It'd be nice overall, but it's almost watery.

Mf: A bit stale, or at least old. Doesn't match the taste. Very awkward to the point of ruining the beer. Smooth and wet enough, but a bit bland. Could certainly be improved.

Dr: Fairly priced, average quality, and almost a bit watery. Try it, but don't expect too much. The mouthfeel needs serious work.

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.

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!

A - Hazy brownish body with a huge sticky white head that lasts forever. Tremendous lacing all over the glass.

S - Big and yeasty with a great clove sharpness. A bit of biscuity malt and bready wheat.

T&M - So much clove in this beer. What a great mix of clove, wheat, malt, and powdery yeast. Moderate carbonation makes this a little dry but nice and smooth. A touch sweet in the end.

D - I could drink a bunch of these. Goes down so easily and has a wonderful taste. One of my new favorite hefeweizens. Why didn't I bring any home from Munich?
