Had this on-tap at Melton's App and Tap in Atlanta.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a one-finger white head. The head dissipates into a thin pancake on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of bananas with good amounts of bubblegum and slight hints of clove.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Banana and bubblegum flavors up front carry through until the crisp ending where clove flavors hit and linger for a bit.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with active carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had no problem finishing a glass and could have a few of these on a warm day.

Overall this is a solid Hefe, but it's not on par with Weihenstephaner or the other heavy hitters. Still, it's well worth a shot when others aren't available.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer was poured into a weizen glass at 49° from a 12 ounce bottle with a produced on date on the label. The usual full carbonated head resulted in the 0.5l glass with the pour swirl pour method. There was little lacing on this cloudy hazy golden brew.

There were notes of clove and banana in the aroma. Slightly yeasty and fruity would be additional terms to describe the bouquet.

This was a very smooth tasting beer with the above mentioned aromas coming through clearly.

The beer was well balanced with a bit of acidity which quickly faded.

This beer was light and refreshing and very easy to enjoy. The natural wheat version proved to be a natural.

Appearance- golden amber color w/lots of beautiful fluffy snow white head.

Smell- Banana was the first thing I sniffed. Followed by yeast, malts, and more citrus.

Taste- Was pretty surprised by this. I wasn't expecting much but it was tasty. Great after taste.

Mouthfeel- Refreshing with perfect carbonation balance.

Drinkability- I would have again!

Poured from a bottle into a tall Weizen glass (lemon slice added after first tasting notes).

Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow with big fluffy head that retained nicely and left sticky lacing behind.

Smell: Sweet and yeasty with scents of bubblegum, cloves and citrus. Whiffs of wheat as well.

Taste: Tastes pretty much like it smells. Deliciously sweet and yeasty with banana, bubblegum and clove flavors. Paulaner Hefe's have a unique taste that always satisfies.

Mouthfeel: Light, creamy, slippery on the tongue. Just the right amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: This is one of my standard go-to Hefe-Weizens when I can get it. I have drank many over the years after discovering it in Germany back in the 80's. A fine example of tasty German Hefe's. I have done, and will continue to do, many sessions with this beer, since it is readily available in most stores and is one of the best (in my opinion).

Picked up a single from a friend.

Man, this beer drinks like candy without being cloyingly sweet. It's no wonder the 5L mini kegs always seem to disappear so fast at parties. The aroma reminds me of light frosting with banana and a hint of clove. The flavor follows the same line with the addition of mellow bready malts as a backbone. The balance here, with the sweet malts, yeast character, and mild hops is fantastic. It drinks smooth, almost like iced tea. This is a great session beer, just don't let it put you on the floor.
