3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks Eric!) Pours a hazy light gold color with a medium sized white head that sticks around. Aroma is quite nice, with some honey-nut cheerios, vanilla, dried banana chips, and an ample amount of must that does intrude on the rest of the scents. There’s a bit of spice, but it’s subdued in comparison to most American hefes. Taste is pretty good, albeit light, with dried banana chips, faint vanilla right before the finish, bread dough, and a crisp minerally and grainy finish. Mouthfeel is light, slightly creamy, and the carbonation is lively. Overall this isn’t a beer that hits you over the head with taste, but I really enjoyed the subtle flavors since every component I would expect in a hefe was present. I wish this were available in the States, as I would drink a lot of this in the summer. Thanks again Eric!

Anaranjada ligeramente turbia, tres dedos de espuma. Ligero aroma entre naranja y platano, con algo de clavo. Cuerpo ligero. Carbonatación perfecta. Gusto muy agradable, menos frutal y dulce que otras, más pan. Muy buena hefe. Extra bebible.

500ml Bottle from Augustiner am Gendarenmarkt, Berlin (€3.90):
Strong wheat aroma, some spice & cloves as well. Fresh notes with some bubblegum followed by citrus. Fairly strong on the nose & lively too.
Cloudy amber with golden tinges & 3cm fluffy head that holds well.
A good combination of wheat & cloves followed by citrus & some bubblegum. An odd touch of spice but the beer seems fresh with some orange & banana flavours here too.
Very smooth with a lively body & strong carbonation. Some sweetness dotted about the place, mainly from the banana in the taste & no bitterness.
Very enjoyable & remarkably easy to drink, refreshing too. Another excellent beer from Augustiner & one that I’d likely pick up again although only Edelstoff & their Lagerbier Hell are easily available in the UK it seems.

Dark blond, small head. Aroma is less fruity than some other hefe wiesses, it’s more pilsner-like. INbetween a pilsner and a weizen. A little bit fruit int the taste, aftertaste could last longer, nice but not my favourite.

Poors cloudy orange with white head.
Aroma banana, yeast, malts.
Taste weak, little sweat, little bitter.
Mouth-feel thin, bit creamy.
Weak weissbeer, it’s ok but taste is little to weak.

A truly average wheat here -- beautiful darkish (for a hefe) color gives it a nice look in the glass. Full-on wheated nose with a bit of alcohol (?). Taste is too thick for me, nearly syrupy -- simply a bit of a letdown after the glass.

The last of the retro Augustiner tasting. My notes tell me it is my second favourite wheat beer, no.1 at this time was Maisel’s hefeweise.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml Weizen glass enjoyed @ Augustiner restaurant @ Munich Oktoberfest 2012.
A: Pours a dark orange color. A bit cloudy but definitely filtered Weissbier. Huge creamy and viscous head is formed leaving many small chunks of foam in the glass
S: Great banana esters in the nose. Spicy in the Weiss style, with notes of cloves, honey, wheat, bread and finally the yeasts. No hops so far...
T: Sweet upfront with notes of honey, sweet malts, some caramel malts. Banana bread, cloves, wheat and yeasts. In overall, a sweet beer. Smooth. No noticeable hops bitterness
M: Very smooth mouth sensation, a light to medium creamy body and low retention. Sweet bread aftertaste
O: Excellent drinkability. Good example of an authentic German Weissbier
