Ah, Paulaner Hefeweizen. Apparently this is a polarizing beer, because the reviewers here seem to love it or aren't impressed. It's my favorite Hefe, so I guess I'm a little biased.
A-Thick, foamy head with lacing as it fades. Color is an opaque golden orange.
S- Smells of banana, clove and lemon. Nice spicy aroma is present.
T- Tastes of banana, clove, coriander, lemon, and dare I say a little pineapple. Finishes very clean with honeyed wheaty notes.
M- Overall, pretty good mouthfeel, but does have a slight graininess to it. Still quite solid.
D- Terrific drinkability. The only German Hefe I've found that can match it is Weihenstephaner.
So there you have it. Some may disagree, but I believe this to be as good as any Hefe you can find. Mmm, I'm gonna have to pick up a case next time at Total Wine. Great summer beer.

A cloudy but vibrant orange body supports a soft, thick off-white head. Great retention, decent lacing, and tons of carbonation. Exactly what you'd expect from a beer of the style.
Again, exactly what you should expect from a hefe. Potent banana and bubble gum aroma with a pleasant hay and sweet malt backing.
Heavy wheat and damp hay hit right up front with the staple flavors of the style, banana and bubble gum. Light Belgian yeast. Light coriander and pepper spice it up.
Nice and light! Refreshing, light body and plenty of carbonation. Clean finish is a bit on the sweet side.
A pretty solid hefe, but nothing here makes it stand out. A good summer beer, sure to please.

3.49/5 rDev -13.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Served from a 16.9 oz. bottle,
Pours a semi-cloudy copper orange with an impressive of white head. Foam settles down after a minute to a thin white coating.
Aroma a bit more restrained than I would prefer, but pleasant nonetheless. Malty wheat notes predominate, with faint banana notes in background.
Taste also dominated by typical malt wheat flavors, with ripe banana moving into the foreground. Some tartness comes through as well.
Nicely carbonated, but a bit thin in terms of mouthfeel.
Paulaner might not be the best representative of its style available, but it's still a solid and well appreciated effort.
