Purchased this sample in the can, while I was in Berlin in September of 2002. 0.5l can.
Pours a dark amber beer, unfiltered, cloudy and topped with a most gorgeous white foam head that can literally stand out of the glass; retains a wonderful sticking lace, too. Aroma is a bit earthy and yeasty with hints of lemon and coarse spices.
Silky smooth luscious mouthfeel; heavenly. Nice banana bread sweetness and flavour up-front, with a clove/herbal spice in the backbone. A refreshing carbonation pricks the palate. Faint bubble gum flavours grip the sides of the palate and dry out with flavours likened to chewing bubble gum for too long. Grain coarseness becomes more pronounced, with yeast flavours on the edges. Crisp, lemony hop bitterness helps to break things up and livens the palate. Malty sweetness pulls thru again, dissipating into the crisp, dry and grainy finish.
A true hefe-weissbier and incredibly fresh in the can. Good stuff ...

Presentation: 16 oz slender euro style brown bottle, freshness date is on the bottom right corner of the front label. The label depicts a scene of perhaps the era in Germany when Paulaner first started brewing.
Appearance: The head is extremely amazing, it foamed up real quick at first and seems to want to tower on top of the glass. Champagne like bubbles raced to the top while the rush of yeast clouded the deep orange copper toned brew. After a few minutes the white head dissipates slightly yet it leaves thick foamy rings of lace down the sides of the glass.
Smell: Fruity of lemon juice and rind, nutty yeast and a touch of clove give it plenty of depth. Hints of spicy pepper corn and a trace of medicinal phenols add to the character.
Taste: Impeccably smooth with a malty medium body, carbonation has dropped down to a moderate level after the active pouring. Sweet tart nectarines and mild banana come to mind from the fruitiness, very abundant malt flavour with suggestions raw honey and sweet rolls. Light prickly spiciness that intensifies the close the finish gets. Hops are passive a give a touch of bitterness at most.
Notes: Funny, on the website it say that their Hefe-Weizen should not be served with a lemon because the citric oils kill the head, this is true so if you dont care about good head and must add a lemon wedge to a perfectly great beer than please dont let us or even the brewers tell you otherwise. Remember the beer gods are watching you. Loss of carbonation after the pouring was this beers only draw back, I got over that real quick.

Sampled last night on 7/21/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "Cheers-Boston' handled glass stein.
Pours a hazy golden pour with a good 2- finger thick head that lasted a while. Left lots of lacing when sipped. Smells of wheat with sweet orange and spice. The taste was pretty much the same and on the sweet side. Very easy to drink and no bad aftertaste. Hefeweizens are all over the board and this one is one of the best!

Poured a nice deep golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Quite nice in appearance and very true to form. Scents of clove-like phenols, banana-like esters, hints of bubblegum and some doughy, bready wheat malt. A good aroma that is true to style, though not standout. Flavor begins with a nice sweet banana flavor with hints of clove and grainy malt balancing. In the middle light bubblegum flavors join the banana and clove and add depth. Finish is semi-sweet, with notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and grainy malt. Aftertaste is grainy wheat malt and clove. A good, though basic hefeweizen flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Quite pleasant and very true to style. Overall this is a good basic hefeweizen that hits the main notes of the style, though it doesn't do a great deal to standout. Still a nice beer and very refreshing in Summer.
