Other Information

In the 14th century, Augustiner was home to the largest religious building in Munich, the Hallenkirche. Much like many other monasteries, Augustiner brewed on site to provide money for the monks, so that they could maintain their lifestyle. It fell into the hands of the Wagner family in the 19th century, who helped to modernise the brewery and secured its first Oktoberfest appearance circa 1867. It has taken massive strides over the past couple of centuries to become one of the most prolific of German breweries and its great reputation and even better beers ensure it will still be moving forward for years to come.
Focusing on its weissbier in particular, it is quite strong for a generic wheat at 5.4% and appears amber coloured in appearance, with the usual hazy texture from the yeast. Its white foam releases the fruity aroma with apricot and banana leading the way, with spices, bread, citrus and honey all stemming from the exquisite use of the top quality hops and malts. The palate explores these flavours enticingly with a smooth and creamy taste to it before it gives way to a bitter finish, making it very drinkable indeed. It picks up several of its flavours from its careful maturity where it is stored in the brewery cellar vaults and then carefully cultivated to then end up in bottle fermentation.

  1. Stujago

    A very nice hefeweizen. Very balanced flavours which aren’t particularly pronounced but it goes down very pleasurably. The head expanded very quickly indeed. Quality stuff.

  2. Matthew Stephens

    I have tried many weissbiers and enjoy visiting the big Augustiner in Munich as well as the smaller ones in the centre. This beer is the first one off the train (as the station is so close) and is always great!

  3. Richard Martin

    This is a really good performer of a Hefeweizen. Great colour and head; bit of fizz, but not too much. Slightly lighter in taste than a Paulaner. Smooth drinking and after-taste with a balanced sweetness

  4. Richard Isherwood

    This is a very tasty weissbier. A banana aroma and slight fruity taste. Pours orange/amber with a thick head that lasts. a solid beer once again from Augustiner.

  5. Charlie Johnson

    I love my hefeweizen beers and have tried many over the years, Augustiner is up there, very wheaty and full of flavour, not too gassy and easy drinker.

  6. Eric Akrill

    On first pouring, this wheat beer doesn’t have a big citrus-like aroma like some others do but its colour, certainly on the lighter side, and head, quite an immediate froth which soon dies down, is pleasant on the eye. It tastes quite wheaty (which, off course, it should) and has a surprising, almost nutty flavour. There is a very mild after taste which doesn’t taste too strong, even though it’s a 5.4% beer. I would definitely buy it again. It is actually quite amazing how all these wheat beers can differ in so many ways.

  7. Gavin Harrison

    A surprisingly golden colour and clarity for a wheat beer although a sediment forms in the bottle and this causes cloudiness in the last pour. A slight sweetness on first taste giving way to more typical wheat flavours. A classic wheat beer but enough difference to set it aside from many and make it an interesting drink.

  8. Kristin

    Appearance is very clear almost like a kristall. Easy drinking, refreshing, clean taste

  9. JL

    Best brewery in Bavaria, if not the world. Light, slightly sweeter profile, great carbonation all the way through and you can taste the brewery – in a good way! Start here as a benchmark if you are new to Hefe

  10. Andy P

    A great wheat beer, but falls just short of the absolute best of this type. Well worth buying and really enjoyable.

  11. Jacqueline

    A high quality Hefeweizen. Balanced flavours, good carbonation and a very pleasing aroma. Not a million miles away from Weihenstephaner.

  12. Karl Rogers

    Much more wheat beers that are better at a cheaper price

  13. Paul C

    A decent quality Hefeweizen.
    Well balanced, smooth with good carbonation.
    Traditional flavours and aromas leave a pleasantly bitter aftertaste.
    Not top if it’s class but really enjoyable.

  14. Mark Woodward

    Somewhat lacking in flavour and body.

  15. Luke Manley

    Easy drinking Hefeweizen. Quite light.

  16. JG

    Fantastic. One of my new favs. A solid 5/5 (if you like wheat beers / Hefeweizens). Recommended to me by a local while at Oktoberfest.

    Fun fact: Augustiner is one of Munich’s oldest independent breweries. Established in 1328.
