COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AUGUSTUS 8 Die Riegele Brauer lieben ihre Heimatstadt. So ist das Augustus 8 eine Hommage an Kaiser Augustus, den Gründer der Stadt ‚Augusta Vindelicorum‘, ein einzigartiges fruchtiges Aromenspiel mit 8 % Alkohol. Wenn sie die bernsteinfarbige Flüssigkeit im Rotweinglas in ihren Händen halten, denken sie versonnen an die große Geschichte Augsburgs und an die lange Geschichte ihrer Brauerei. Tun Sie es ihnen nach! Uses a different yeast than the Augustus Weizendoppelbock

jonas (9913) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2019 Bottle. Cloudy orange amber, golden foam. Granny perfume and bubblegum aroma. Medium full body, boozy sweet caramel, flambeed banana, light citrus, candy, bubblegum, allspice and smoke retronasal. Bit too sweet for my taste.

Bov (14954) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2018 from Bier-Bienne - cloudy copper-orange beer with a moderate beige foam left; aroma of caramel and candied apples/banana; fairly sweet, medium-bodied, low carbonation; the finish fails a bit short showing lot of residual sugars and more bananas - not terrible

Jow (4638) - Winter Garden, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2018
Bottle at home. Lighter orange amber pour not the prettiest. Nos eus banana and cloves. Tastes much the same also caramel, red fruit, brown sugar. Lighter bodied not too sweet. Dedicated to my long time drinking buddy Noodles who’s been sitting next to me on couch for last 15yrs, R.I.P. old friend.

b3shine (10125) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 14, 2018
Draft to taster at Pies & Pints. Looks good for the style; a cloudy caramelish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells yeasty with a nice balance of plum and clove. Tastes like it smells, but more clovey, and with raisin in place of the plum. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Solid, but smells better and more balanced than it tastes.

Weizenbock, certes, mais qui est aussi un weizen doppelbock, tel que défini par le brasseur, et il a raison puisqu'on affiche pas moins de 8 % abv au compteur, ce qui pour l'Allemagne est bien une " double " ration … mais en 33 cl !! (ce que l'on vous a donné d'une main, on vous le reprend de l'autre …). Couleur curieuse ambre bronze, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, très vives. Mousse beige, à fins flocons, tendance soyeuse, stable à 2 mm. Nez un peu curieux sur un ensemble épicé/herbeux, avec une pointe d'alcool de noisette. 1ère bouche veloutée, avec malt cara, herbes, pointe de poire. Arrière-bouche beaucoup plus détaillée sur une liqueur de coing. 2ème avec une tendance à la liquorisation. Arrière-bouche qui donne des nuances riches, mais peu harmonieuses. 3ème avec des herbes qui reviennent, assez mal placées. Arrière-bouche sans personnalité véridique. Longueur qui ne peut sortir de cet guet-apens … Jambes fines, denses, mais courtes. Levure un peu vineuse, belle ligne. Alcool bien mais très inefficace sur la longueur, il regarde si Auguste fait bien partie des Césars, mais cela ne nous arrange pas !! Finale dissipée. CONCLUSION : bière curieuse, pas mauvaise certes, mais peu adéquate au style proposé, et à l'harmonie faible … Son nom, quant à lui, est galvaudé !! (6/3/4/3/11)

faroeviking (12223) - Bjór í heilum!, FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 10, 2018
Botella. Deep amber dark brown colour, clear like with some floaties. Medium off-white nice head, good lacing. Sweet aroma of well toasted malt and caramel. with dark fruits, some wheat and spice along with alcohol and bit fruit Good palate. Flavour is on the sweet side alright with well toasted malts, toasted caramel, dark fruits, alcohol, yeast, bit wheat and some fruit. Bitter finish, sweet indeed, malty and caramellic spiced.

DrNosha (3799) - Wuerttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2018
0,33lFlasche. Schmutzig trübes dunkel gelbes Bier, feiner Schaum. Bananenduft. Antrunk eher dünn. Etwas Banane.

3.8
alex_leit (7317) - Minsk, BELARUS - JUL 3, 2018
Bottle. Honey-amber color, cloudy, good yellowish foam. Aroma: a very banana flavor with milk, esters and cloves, a little white port and acetone. Taste: sweet, toffee, raisins, caramelized banana and dried banana, plum wine, a little sherry and sweet spices, good one.

3.5
bubblehouse (1781) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2018 Can't remember much about this. Judging by the score I must have liked it pretty well.
