I just finished reading all 160+ reviews. Because I just finished my second bottle of this "natural wheat" hefe. I too was expecting more of this beer. After the buildup, it was a major disappointment. Yes, everyone else raved about it. Yes, I am comitting sacrilege by saying something negative. But I must point out that FOR ME, it was not a satisfying experience. For a hefeweizen, the bitterness, and the lack of drinkability was amazing. Definitely not smoooth. I keep reading about how it tasted like: Lemon. Banana. Clove. Bubblegum (?) Bread. Orange. Wheat. Grass-like. Pepper. Malt. Acerbic. Phenols. Yeast.

Everyone kept saying "drink this beer if you want to know what a hefe is SUPPOSED to taste like."

WHY has no one mentioned that IT TASTES LIKE SOMEONE ADDED A FEW DROPS OF TURPENTINE?! I distinctly taste pine! Is that normal for a Hefe? Sorry, guys! but this beer is nasty.

Give something a head and it comes alive. Give it a body and it's an animal of sorts. Give it a name and it's an historical fact. Give it fungus and sweetness and it becomes a hefe-weizen. This beer and its cohorts are just not for me. Sweet malty bread in a bottle may be European for purity and beer but to me it's the last stage before candy goes stale and cannot be consumed for enjoyment. Enjoyment to me is a confidence of similar likes. There is no need to force it together for an expected end, it'll just happen. This isn't happening for me on any level.

This is my first review of a wheat ale and I learned that this style is not for me. I found the taste to have lots of spice and lemon zest but throw together in a kinda unpleasant way. The appearance was good, decent foamy head and the beer itself a nice copper color. I think i can appreciate this brew, it seemed really complex and well done, just not what im looking for in a brew.

Served on draught into a 33cl Paulaner glass in France. Price was 3.50 euro.

A: Pours a two finger head of soft delicate cream, good thickness, and great retention. Colour is a hazy orange.

Sm: Orange and lemon peel. A mild strength aroma.

T: Orange and lemon peel ester hops with a curtailing nasty finish. Muted and bland for the style. Simple and poorly built, but balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Far too wet. Not really complementary of the flavours.

Dr: Easy to drink, but lacking flavour. A high price by French standards.

12 oz brown bottle with best by date

a - golden, cloudy, foamy head. lots of visible yeast! bottom of glass is crystal clear and the middle is all cloudy yeast. very interesting!

s - noticable wheat with a hint of lemon and other spices. tiny bit of yeast on nose.

t - not enough wheat! some yeast. this is actually fairly watery.

m - light bodied with a very weak finish.

notes: this has to be a bad bottle. that or paulaner just isn't nearly as good as everyone here says it is.

Apricot color, nose a little stale corn but where we feel the yellow fruit (especially bananas) which somehow tries to point the tip of his nose, but without much success. The taste is slightly sweet with a slight bitterness with an additional finish virtually nonexistent.
