I had this on tap at the Augustiner Grossgaststatte beer hall on the Marienplatz in Munich. Not only that, but it was for breakfast with weisswurst (white sausage). Aah, the little things.

The beer was dark straw color, very hazy, with a thick frothy foam. The aroma was near perfect for the style, bananas and cloves all the way. The flavor was very good at first, but a bit of buttery aftertaste made me pause. Maybe that's intentional, as this is truely an authentic and fresh weisse bier. The mouthfeel was thick and coating, absolutely a stunning breakfast.

Light aroma of apricots and banana. Tall, dense, off-white head leaves some nice strands of lace. Hazy, glowing tequila sunrise colored beer. The flavor is just missing. A touch of citrus flavor and a hint of banana on my breath afterwards are all the flavor there is. The most dominant flavor is the carbonic acid. I didn't think it was possible to make a bad Hefe Weizen, but this one has me thinking otherwise.

A - Orangish-brown and very cloudy with a huge rocky head.

S - spice dominates with clove and just a hint of coriander.

T - This flavor is all about the clove. It follows all the way through with a slightly bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied and a bit tingly from the carbonation. Overall the mouthfeel contributes very, very well to making this a refreshing beer.

D - Up there with some of the better Weissbiers to come out of the area. I will drink this one again.

i'm not entirely sure why some of their beers were only available in bottle when the brewery is next door

it's not weienstephan, but there's no beating the original

this brew is entirely opaque with an orangish caramel color and a bone-colored head sitting up top. spicy aroma mostly coming from clove and coriander, while the spices dominate the flavor, leaving banana in the dust. it's fairly bitter, actually

it feels both spritzy and medium-bodied at the same time

BB 01-06. Nice head that's lasting well and a amberbrown and very foggy beer. Nose is good wheatcaracter with sourness and lots of banana yeastester. Caramellic touch also completes the nose that's overal fresh and clean. As is taste that's dry but with caramellic sweethint, good sourness, lots of wheatmalt and only low bitterness in aftertaste. Good& high carbonisation makes together with the taste a fine mouthfeel and is overal very balanced. Yes this is a great beer to enjoy on a hot and warm day and will refresh you all the way.

Pours a hazy golden-brownish base with a huge fluffy white head, very impressive head retention and lacing with ever gulp… near perfect! Classic smell for a Hefe, but this one is loaded with wheat, the malts really come out to play in this beer.
The taste is great for a Hefe, but the wheat and malt combo comes off way too strong, even here in Bavaria. The aftertaste was the first thing I noticed as being a little odd, sorry that I can't explain it - however the beer is a winner in terms of smoothness. Sure it's a little heavy since it's a Hefe, but this is one you can drink throughout the night and be very content. Big ups!

Final Thought: Augstinier has the best beer in Muinch, maybe of the best in the world…

Pours a nice solid, deep, cloudy, orange color. Looks powerful and majestic. The head is enormous and white. The smell is as rich as the appearance. Juicy and spicy. Orange peel and other citrus fruits. Beautiful. If they made a perfume that smelled like this it would drive beer loving men crazy. The taste is juicy and refreshing (the way a hefe should be). The aftertaste is slightly spicy, but a nice pleasant spicy. The mouthfeel is very good. Medium-bodied. The only thing i can find wrong with it is that it is a little too much carbonation, which is probably hiding some of this beer's great flavor. Overall, this is very good beer. One of the best hefes I've had. This is the second beer I've had from Augustiner Brua, and they have both been excellent. I do believe it to be one of the most overlooked breweries in Germany.

Amber-orange colour. Classic weizenbier foam.
The smell is typical: banana and cloves. Even orange, and light spices.
The taste it isn't so typical, like the colour... It's more "dark" and winding. Wheat, yeast, but even a light note of caramel. And a litlle astringency in the finish.
Medium body, good drinkability. Quite good weizen.

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.

Pours a tan coloured and opaque liquid, a normal to south german weissbiers. The smell hints hops alongside a reduced amount of wheat. The taste is exactly that: a certainly bitter but full flavour with a good amount of wheat. Its not a bad beer but may get heavier than usual when drinking one too many.

A superb Hefe had at Augustiner Grossgaststatte Bierhalle. Rich, light amber color. Huge rocky off-white head. Clove, herbal and banana aroma and flavor. Tastes like the wheat grain bill is more substanial than other Weissbiers. Can't beat the freshness of the local Munich beers.
