BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[draught at the Augustiner Beerhall] Very hazy, orange color. Pours with the usual, typically-dense white foam. Aroma is lots of clove and banana, with a strong spice character. Flavors are tart wheat, more banana and clove. Very phenolic. Finishes fruity and slightly citric. Very good.

Classic munchen weizen, so hazy, fill bodied, but more smoked than banana taste. I like it!

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 [ BA Review @ 9/30/2012 ]

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
(Bottle, Berlin Tempel Airport, 27 July 2014) Hazy golden colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with bread, banana, canned peaches and some clove. Malty, wheaty taste with notes of bread, wheat-flour dough, banana, peaches and clove. Medium body, with a certain sweetness and low bitterness. Solid and true to the style, but hardly exciting. Quite enjoyable.

adamnowek (136) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 This is a very creamy weissbier. Just delicious on the tongue with a lot of complexity, too. Aroma is largely what you would expect from a weissbier and it looks a little water (but it isn’t, don’t worry).

Banana cake, creamy mouthfeel, peppery finish. Simple but solid wheat brew.

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.

Moravius (529) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Im Augustiner am Gendarmenmarkt, Berlin. - Dunkles Goldgelb, trüb, üppiger sahniger Schaum. - In der Nase Orange, Banane, Birne aber nicht besonders frisch - eher Kompott als frische Früchte. - Im Antrunk Bitterorange, Aprikose, herbe Frucht mit leicht bitterer Note. Prickelnd rezent, leicht kremig, vollmundig. Süßer Weizen, etwas Vanille. Im Abgang weißbiertypisch milde, schwach krautige und etwas dumpfe Bittere. - Wirkt etwas matt und schwerfällig, ohne die spritzig-fruchtige Leichtigkeit der besten Weizenbiere (Karg!). Trinkbar aber nicht herausragend.

Gusto deciso, aroma di banana persistente.. Consistenza in bocca decisamente non delicata, retrogusto dolciastro!
