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 ...

4/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
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.

I would say that is the best beer in the world. The taste is perfect, the smell is perfect...
You can buy this beer in the US too. I am pretty sure.. it is a global-player. Drink it cold! I got one in Beverly Hills (Bar Nineteen 12). It is a dream!
