look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy orange in color with a full inch of head. A less careful pour could easily triple the head size I've found. Retention and lacing are robust.

Aromas of banana and orange on the nose, lots of wheat. Improving and expanding as the beer warms a bit, becoming slightly tart but not sour.

Taste follows the nose with banana and wheat. Finishing with more of the orange flavors. Nice body and mouth feel with a lingering sweet breadiness on the finish. Good drinkability.

Preferred over the draft version, seeming fresher and more lively.

Presentation: Poured from the classic, 500ml brown bottle into a weizen glass. The label is the standard Paulaner look, depicting a scene of "typical" German country side life with the Paulaner seal over head. It also looks like the beer may have been produced a year ago, if I am reading the date correctly. We'll see how the beer tastes.

Apearance: Pours with the usual big weizen head, 2-3 inches of foamy, white goodness. The beer itself is a nice apricot amber and cloudy.

Smell: Nice and spicy/fruity. Smells of bananam lemons, and bubblegum.

Taste: Old or not, this beer is still great. Nice carbonation bite. Slightly sweet, without being cloying. Mouthfulls of fruity esters. Noticeable wheat tang.

Mouthfeel: Average level of carbonation, perfect for this style. Nice body.

Drinkability: With the warm weather we have been having right now, drinking a hefe in January is not as wierd as it seems. The easy drinking, fruity style of this beer make it easy to pack a few away on a nice summer day (or winter day!)

12 oz bottle into a large weiss glass. Freshness labeling on the side. Cloudy and pale gold it delivers a generous head of a couple fingers. Good lacing and head retention and a very active carbonation visible throughout.

Smell is heavy on the lemon and wheat malt. Quite twangy and sharp. Light sweetness from the malt is backed up by gentle banana and yeast esters. Banana develops as it warms.

Taste is wheat malt upfront and lemony right after. Good fruitiness follows with light pear and heavier banana. Clean and light hops close it out with a slightly spicy clove and pepper kiss goodbye.

Mouthfeel is tingly and effervescent with a fine layer of carbonation on the mouth. Light medium in weight.

Drinkability is easy and good for sessioning in the summer.

I've had this one with a bit more flavor so I will review it again at some time and see if it holds up. I just remember more bang in the bottle. Freshness date indicates it was produced 03/08

Pours cloudy golden yellow - very active fizz, but develops a small head with no noticable lacing.

Very pleasing smell - bananas, citrus, yeast, bread. Its all in there.

The taste is classic hefe - citrusy with a lingering yeast taste. Some tartness. Little noticable hop taste. Less fizzy than anticipated in the mouth.

A very drinkable hefe - drinking mine a little out of season (not necessarily the ideal winter beer - can imagine having this after mowing the lawn.
