A: caramel gold with light haze though that's probably my fault for laying it sideways and putting it in the freezer for a bit (3/3)
S: most certainly a wheat beer with some apple and pepper to balance the gluten (9/12)
T: again solidly wheaty but there's a sweet malt that balances the spicy wheat (16/20)
M: very bubbly and the odd astringency that I usually associate with things like fruits and juice that have started to ferment (4/5)
O: a solid wheat beer but doesn't hold a candle to weihenstephaner I will try it again since I'm somewhat concerned about shelf turnover where I bought this. (7/10)

My first wheat beer. Brilliant even from a can. Many different levels, but, very easy to drink. My only complaint is that I only had one to drink.

I typically avoid wheat beers, but this one has a very nice flavor. Very drinkable with hints of citrus.

Review: Can of Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier Naturtrüb 5.5%ABV Paulaner’s have made good beer for close to 400 years, so it was with great excitement that I had a chance to sample a Oktoberfest special and the brewery’s biggest selling product. German beer is always a winner so lets see how I got on………… The smell was of a very very strong sweet aroma, but lovely on the nose. The aroma is mostly wheat and earthy with some light citrus notes. Going by the smell, its already off to a great start, lovely stuff. This is a beer that means business. On pour I got a very large frothy white head that took a little while to settle, with a dark cloudy golden colour of a beer appearing. There was very good lacing with some carbonation. When the head finally settled down, I started on the important business of the tasting. The taste was not as overly strong as I had expected, it was extremely smooth and clean to drink, subtle flavours, with a lovely feel to it. To be honest I didnt find too much going on with the taste, as the flavours were particularly soft on the palate, with a mild wheat and yeast taste. There was a very faint but nice citrus hop aftertaste, This has to be one of the most drinkable beers I have had in a long time, was very easy to drink and enjoyable in the process. Such a shame I only bought a few cans! Can see why this beer is so popular in the beer halls of Munich, as I’d imagine you could down these all day long. This is really a top beer. Strongly recommended. Prost!

I really like this one. Pours a cloudy and lovely golden color. A thin head dissipates into a thin lace, with a prominent looking spritzy carbonation. Aroma is sweet and citric. I can smell more malt than wheat. Taste is malty sweet, citric with slight hops. Feel is slightly creamy, light bodied but filling. A solid and quality Hefeweizen.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Draft @ Paulaner Am Dom. AROMA: Wheat and yeast aroma with some vanilla notes. APPEARANCE: golden colour and hazy. large white head with poor retention. TASTE: wheat malt flavour with some vanilla and faint banana notes. low bitterness and a semi-sweet finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a slight above average weizen with good aromas and flavours.

the best wheat beer I've ever had.
but you need to care about the temperature and preservation of the beer
since the taste of beer is easily affected by the factors.
don't forget twirl the bottle for the last time when you pour it.
it will give extra flavour to the beer.

Poured from the bottle into a Weizen Glass


Not a ton of nose here...little bit of lemon, wheat malt, and some musty yeast. Pours a dark, hazy gold with tons of small bubbles rushing to a white, robust, 2-finger head. Head stays intact all the way down the glass sand leaves behind substantial splotches of lacing. Nice, soft on the palette wheat malt body with hints of yeast, toffee and lemon zest. Enough spicy hop present to balance everything out and keep this beer interesting. Smooth, somewhat sweat finish of wheat malt and toffee. Creamy, and on the lighter side of medium bodied, the mouthfeel of this is about perfect.

Quite refreshing after a short bike ride, but still has enough substance to certainly feel like a legitimate craft beer. A straight-ahead, artfully crafted hefeweizen done right that I could easily see myself buying again.

T^- Taste - hint of burnt popcorn at the front. Mellow full bodied yeast and wheat grain. Hints of toffee and caramel. Very drinkable soft on the palate.

O^ Odor - Sweet and subtle not much going on. i have slight congestion not bad but i wish i could bring more then that to the observation. I can smell the yeast not heavy but subtle again as its posed to its style.

M^ Manifestation- I'd say its overwhelming good. Its easily an everyday drinker subtle at the front and the back but brings a nice full round body to the party. i wouldn't say its a mouthful buts its precisely what you'd want it to be.

Lighter citrus notes with a fuller body than most in this range.

Nice hefe-weissbier. I drank this one a day after Franziskaner - a nice thing to do if you wanna compare similar beers.
It has a dark ocher color, a bit transparent, and a nice foam, really persistant and that makes a respectfull lace.
Taste and smell are malty, full of wheat tones, with some banana, cloves and other spices.
Body is big and carbonation is at good level.
A brief comparation to Franziskaner shows that their are quite similar in the appearance but Franziskaner is more complex in the taste and has a higher level of carbonation.

Pours a cloudy, hazy, golden color with a head that hangs around a bit.

Smells like a hefe. Banana, cloves, a little caramel sweetness.

I've had this beer a lot and it's always great, taste follows the nose pretty closely.

Great hefe. Well worth trying.

It poured a deep hazy golden hue with a full and fluffy head that I have come to expect from my Hefe’s. The aroma held cloves and the signature banana bubblegum notes. The taste followed the nose with more of the signature banana and bubblegum but the taste leaned more to the clove spicy side. The Paulaner Hefe-Weizen had a creamy body and mouthfeel that makes the Hefeweizens an enjoyable beer for me. While the flavor was a bit thinner than some I have had recently it still hit all the right Hefe notes and was a solid representation of the style. Of course it was light and easy to drink which makes it perfect for the summer Texas heat.

Cloudy orange gold pour with a one-finger white head. Nice yeast and spice aroma. Taste follows the nose with a really nice clove flavor upfront. Can also taste flavors of yeast, wheat, banana and a touch of lemon. Finishes dry with a nice lingering clove flavor.

12oz bottle served in a hefeweizen glass 9/1/2014.

A- Hazy, darker golden body with tons of carbonation emanating from within. Four finger white head, dense and thick with good retention. It eventually drops into a thick film and collar that doesn't go away for a while. Lots of rings of lacing. As far as I'm concerned, this is a classic hefeweizen appearance. [4.25]

S- Banana, clove, bubblegum, wheat, pale malt. Classic hefeweizen, strong nose. [4.25]

F- Wheat, freshly baked bread, bananas, cloves. A bit of noble hops round things out at the end. Not as much bubblegum as in the nose. Very flavourful, yet not terribly bitter. [4.25]

M- Medium-lighter body, plenty of carbonation. Not bitter, slightly dry and very refreshing. [4.25]

O- Very good example of a Bavarian hefeweizen, harkens back to my time living in Munich. Recommended especially if you find it fresh. [4.25]

Final score: 4.25

A: Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint medium yellow highlights. The beer has a four finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to medium to large sized finger thick cap surrounded by a very thick film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of banana + clove from the yeast as well as some lighter notes of wheat and hints of bubble gum. The aroma intensifies as the beer warms.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat malts along with some lighter flavors of bready malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of banana and a light presence of clove from the yeast contribution. Minimal amounts of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and sessionable - reminds me of my many visits to Bavaria over the years, where much of this was consumed. Very enjoyable and a very good example of the style.
