Had this at the tattenbau several times in Munich. Poured from a 500ml bottle properly swirled into an augustiner weissbier glass each time.

This is my perfect hefeweizen. Only the look gets points taken off because it was just a bit to clear and the head receded a little faster than normally found on other wheat beers. Really nice hazy orange yellow color with a nice foamy head. Great lacing down the glass tracks each swig. The aromas were unbelievable clean and focused. Easily the best smelling hefeweizen I have experienced. There was a great light banana and bubblegum flavor that was similar to it's aroma. Fresh cut lemons and some thyme came through also. Mouthfeel was spot on the the style for me. Also had a nice crisp finish despite it's juicy flavors. Drinkability was perfect, and again, what a shame you can't get this in the states.

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.

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!
