Pours hazy golden yellow with moderate carbonation.. Head is thick and fluffy.

Smell is lemon wheat, banana and cloves. Nice yeastiness.

Taste is rich and fruity. Grainy malt adds pleasant sweetness and peppery yeast spices give the finish a welcome bite. Banana makes a stronger appearance as it warms.

Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Very nice.

A well crafted Hefe here. I rather enjoy the grainy brashness. I will pick this one up again.

One of the better hefe's I have had, it poured with a nice large foamy white head and left ample lace as I drank it. The taste was a little more malty and I detected a tad more hops than a normal hefe (maybe this is why I liked it so well). The mouthfeel was good you could almost feel the bubbles dancing on your tongue. A very good beer for us avcionados and also a good place for the novice to start...........CHEERS

Been hittin' all the classic hefe's on here lately.
12 oz bottle with a date of 12/08 on it. Hopefully this means bottled in December of 08? I'm not sure but that sounds about right.

A: The head on this beer is really quite nice, but that's almost standard for a great Hefe such as Paulaner. The brew pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a clean white head that dissipates into a cover over the beer.

S: Smells vaguely of lemon and clove with some other citrusy notes coming through. The banana that I'm so used to really doesn't show here all that much.

It tastes somewhat of banana as well as orange rind. This beer is incredibly smooth with a light-medium body and medium carbonation. Drinkability is spectacular but not necessarily a 5: I'd reserve that for more drinkable beers of the style such as the Weihenstephaner.

Nice! Poured a cloudy, rich otangish yellow color with a nice white head. Nose is full of of wheat, citrus and banana. Very good and tasty indeed. Nice finish on the end, little tart but sweet to. Mouthfeel is medium and good, not to heavy or light. Very tasty and better than I imgagined.

one of the classic wheat beers of the world this one is. it pours a nice bright almost orange shade of gold, cloudy, with a two inch white head that slowly fades. the nose is clove and banana in subtle amounts, malted wheat, and that characteristic hefe yeast. there is a lot of flavor in this, fruity and bready and summery, and lots of body for the style, which I like a lot. still plenty drinkable though, and a 6 pack seems to be about the right dose of this stuff. bubbly with some spice on the finish, very satisfying, and supremely refreshing when its cold. priced fairly and available everywhere, this is a quality product. one of my favorite regular imports.

Paulaner hefeweizen is consistently one of the best wheat beers you can find..
It is light and refreshing, and yet very flavorful which, despite what many macro-lagers strive for, is extremely rare. But this is not a lager this is a hefeweizen.. and so you can expect fruitiness and spice along with a refreshing crisp taste..
the appearance is light and cloudy.. maybe straw or very light orange.. beautiful full white head with very even small/medium bubbles.. the smell is very inviting.. light banana/clove maybe slight mango/papaya scent.. smells like juice or a smoothie of some kind.. the taste is crisp with a fruity clove aftertaste the lingers beautifully - hard to describe but so refreshing.. mouthfeel and drinkability are very good.. this is a great summer beer.. despite the fact that it does not taste very beer like to me..

Pours a golden colour with a thick creamy head that disappears pretty quickly. Minimal lacing to the glass. Smells sweet, fruity and wheaty. Tastes sweet and wheaty with a banana undertones. Low on the carbonation and very light and refreshing. Nice drop.

Poured this one into a weihenstephan 500ml wheat beer glass.

A- Pours a slightly cloudy mellow gold, with about 2 inches of bubbly white head that subsides quickly for a weizen. some lacing. looks good.

S- a touch of banana, some citrus and sweetness, a touch of clove, again pretty good.

T- much like the nose, banana, citrus and a touch of sweetness, some clove. nice.

M- some nice prickly carbonation straight up, nice weight for a hefe, on the lighter side of mid-bodied. length is alright.

O- a very good, very drinkable hefeweizen, lacks the complexity of the best, but is still very nice.
