Today I invite you to the last post in the mini-series devoted to beers from the brewery Augustiner. At the end I left a Hefeweizen named Augustiner Weissbier.
Several previous entries I devoted to the approximation of Munich’s oldest brewery, which is Augustiner.
I wrote about the history of the brewery and I shared experiences from tasting some of their products.
Today, the last of the beers, that I bought some time ago. This beer is Hefeweizen named Augustiner Weissbier.
I promise myself after it the most experience, because I really like this style, or rather, I am not a lover of Helles, although I admit that their pilsner named Pils I will remembered very warmly.
About weizens I have already written more than once, even on the occasion of tasting Franziskaner, or Erdinger, so without further ado I turn straight to the point.
Name: AUGUSTINER WEISSBIER (Hefeweizen, alc. 5,4% ABV)
|Amber colour with an orange tinge.
Foam white, initially quite high.
Quickly appear larger bubbles and foam descends, leaving only the surface remnants.
When pouring the beer is initially clear
– After adding the last portion of the bottle, together with yeast sediment, beer becomes cloudy, of course.
Visible quite high saturation.
|The aroma of typical Hefeweizen.
Clear bananas and cloves – bananas I felt at the moment of opening the bottle.
In the background is a hint of citrus, orange.
It is a little vanilla, a little chalky aroma.
|The relatively delicate malty sweetness – wheat with yeast accent.
It is seasoned with a pinch of cloves.
There are bananas, but somewhere deep inside – they mix with a hint of vanilla.
There is also light acidity.
Beer is a sweet and dry, but bitterness is minimal, slightly herbal.
It is more pronounced only at the finish, but it shows up only for a moment and soon disappears.
Then remains malty-cloves aftertaste.
Augustiner Weissbier is a typical and tasty hefeweizen.
There are all typical features of this style.
There are cloves and bananas. There is wheat sweetness with yeast accent. There is also a delicate citrusy acidity and a touch of vanilla. Almost no bitterness, only in the finish shows for a moment leaving the malty-clove remembrance.
Generally, this is a very laid hefeweizen, the flavours are subdued and harmonized.
For lovers of German weizen – an obligatory position.
For this post, I am finishing for now a series of reviews of beers from the brewery Augustiner. For now – because I would like in future return to tasting a certain liquor from that brewery. I am thinking of their prized doppelbock Maximator. When I can buy this beer, for sure immediately I show it here.
For now another picture of today Weissbier and see you in the next post.
