Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Pint bottle brought back from Germany by Dave #4’s brother. Pours a highly carbonated cloudy orange with a one finger white head. The nose is wheat, spice and light esters. The taste is lemon zest, spice, dusty wheat and banana. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Decent.

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 (483) - 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!

Idiosynkrasie (3804) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average, frothy, off-white head. Wheaty, fruity, and yeasty aroma, hints of banana, clove, a touch of orange and lemon, slightly bready undertones with hints of baked banana. Taste is moderately sweet wheat malty, hints of banana, pear, a touch of orange, bitter hoppy overtones, prickling carbonation. Quite decent.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Moderate to heavy light bread, straw and grain for the malt, light herbs and medium dough for the hops and yeast, with clove and ripe banana in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Though a little bit pale and light in flavor this German Hefeweizen has plenty of complexity.

jamestulloch (1384) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle at El Dorado Wine Bar, Monterosso. Hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of orange, lime, green apple and yeast. Flavour of orange and white pepper. Faint mint note. Medium body with a frothy then slightly oily texture. Nice fizz. A juicy Hefeweizen.

massingasetta (242) - München, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
Die Färbung des Bieres ist stimmig und macht Lust auf den ersten Schluck. Geruch ist hefig und dominant. Schaumkrone ist auch nicht zu beanstanden. Grundsätzlich ist der Einstieg gut, aber es fehlt mir etwas an Pep. Ist dies ein besonderes Weizen? Nein - es ist alles vorhanden, aber ich bin bei Augustiner vielleicht überkritisch. Körper und Abgang sind einheitlich und eintöig gut. Fazit: Keiner sagt was schlechtes über dieses Bieraber es reicht einen auch nicht aus dem Hocker.
