Pours comparatively slightly hazy dark amber beer with 2-finger off-white head, leaving some laces.
Smell - more pepper and clove, less banana.
Taste follows the smell, don't wait for round aftertaste, it leans to spiciness.
More rough than expected and not so classic weissbier, but still teasing.

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.

I really like Augustiner, but the Weissbier option is a weak showing compared to most other Bavarian wheat beers. For a wheat beer the flavor was a bit hollow. I've only tried one, so I might have had a bad taste.

My personnal favorite "Weiss" beer. Can't wait to go back to münich to take another one... Unfortunately, this beer is not available outside germany I think.
