I bought this bottled beer often from the BevMo chain throughout southern California. One of the early hefes in my experience, purchased using the rating system at the store. Luckily, it turned out to be one of the best beers i've ever had, and one that I will be an advocate of for the rest of my life. A beautiful white head on this fruity hefe that produces some of the most pleasant citric notes of any beer I know. The mouthfeel on this brew is also amazingly round and filling for a hefe. Instead of losing its head and going down a bit watery like some others, this Paulaner keeps its form and hits all areas of the palate with its relatively thick body. Definitely try this if you haven't as a wonderful introduction to hefes!

3.45/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Good hazy and golden appearance, pristine white head on top, 1" in depth. Nice bready lemony aroma, nothing spectacular, spot on for style really.

Taste, white winter wheat type flavors, soft, bready, a little bit of spice flavor that I could do without, clove lite, plenty of banana and a bit of metallic sourness. Mouthfeel ok, the beer frankly gets a little tiresome, yeah its a pretty traditional interpretation of the style, but it just doesn't excite me, so if you're a wheat or hefe fanatic, don't let my review persuade you to one side of the aisle over another. I found this beer to be decent, slightly expensive, and for maximum interest, to drink less than 8oz of it at a time, anything more, and the novelty fades, the experience became more humdrum.

The Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier is a German wheat beer brewed with 60% wheat and 40% malt.

It has a crisp light taste, fruity aroma (hint of citrus) and a very clean finish. This coupled with higher carbonation than some other hefe-weizen beers makes the Paulaner a refreshing choice. This brew has a wonderfully light orange colour that is uniform throughout, with no visible sediment on the pour and a stable head. It has a slightly metallic taste characteristic of a lager, but the taste does not linger. It tends to be thin in texture. The Paulaner would be excellent to drink on a hot summer's day, rather than as a featured winter seasonal beer in an upscale restaurant. The texture, taste, and complexity this beer presents to the palate is less enveloping than higher alcohol content, darker hefe-weizen beer. In that sense, it is "low maintenance" and "easy drinking".

The Paulaner has less of a hoppy taste than say, Hacker-pschorr Hefe Weisse, but is highly palatable and easy to enjoy. Overall, as a fan of hefe-weizen beer, I think this specimen represents a solid staple in the beer fridge.

I wrote this review as I drank the beer. Thanks for reading!

This is one of my favorite beers. It's a great starter and a great finisher. I have found this one all over the place so it should be easy enough to find for anyone that has never been able to try it.

I'm not the best at rating so I'll just say that it's a cloudy golden, crisp beer that tastes great on the palate. Please try this if you haven't.

This is my first ever beer review and I'm not quite au fait with the techno babble just yet, so apologies for that, but I know how to enjoy the stuff and my thoughts should have some worth.

A: A massive head of foam. The beer itself is a cloudy golden colour.

S: Sniffing from the bottle I'm getting banana.

T: Poured into a Pilsner glass. First sip very underwhelming. No impact at all. Nice but very muted flavour. Not bitter enough by half, even for a Weissbier. Gets better after a few sips although banana is the only really discernible flavour, and maybe cloves too.

O: Twenty minutes on from finishing the bottle and I have no aftertaste whatsoever. It's hard to believe 330ml of beer just washed over my tongue. Still a nice beer but I feel the flavours are muted to a fault.
