*Reviewed on 24.04.2005

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…

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!
