A very good tasty creamy-like beer. W/O a doubt one of Germany's finest breweries. Have been to Munich and tasted a Paulaner first-hand and must say the bottles I brought home are even better and tastier than their tap version.

Very smooth and mild tasting which only gets better as one consumes. I believe I paid 1 euro for this 1/2 pint beer.

Pours a dark cloudy amber colour into the glass, with alot of foam like all weissbier. It has a mild smell of yeast and malt, maybe some hint of citrus. The taste is the same as the smell. You can also feel a little bitterness in the after taste. A good beer but not as good as the naturtrüb.

Fresh, smooth, not very complex, just roast and chocolate malt aroma and chocolate malttaste. Medium satisfying mouthfeel, great after Sushi with wasabi and ginger. Pure brown, lace. Dry aftertaste. Some malt, banana and citrus, bit of yeast. Well carbonated. Thanks Mark for bringing back from germany.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this in Carrefour; I was there to look for the Leffe Brune
and ended up purchasing a Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel and KristallKlar weizens beers.
I tried this beer in my 50cl Schneider Weiss weizen glass; the Dunkel Weizen pours out a dark
shade of brown with a typical big white weizen head with average retention. Spices including
cloves and a slight wheat maltiness forms the smell emanating from the opening of the weizen
glass; the spicey smell reminds me very vaguely of the Hoegaarden Witbier smell. The taste
was quite a party for the mouth; for the first time I finally understood the banana taste that
German hefe-weizen drinkers preach of! Perhaps my pellates have matured over time or maybe this
beer is strong on the weizen taste. In addition to the banana taste was the spices and the
wheat malts and very subtle yeastiness; very nice. The body of this beer is slightly off medium
body like any other weizens and there is a light yet apt amount of carbonation giving it a
good mouthfeel; this dunkel weizen is very smooth to drink as well. The after taste was mainly
wheat malts and a slight banana like taste which was again a pleasant experience. All of a
sudden, I am getting curious about the weizenbock style of brewing; I believe an apt mix of the
hefe-weizen and bock brewing style would become my favourite style for German weizens; we'll
see. I am looking forward to try the Aventinus.

Pours hazy brown with a large, lasting head. Nose shows lots of doughy wheat, caramelised bananas and spicy phenols. Similar flavours, mainly doughy wheat with soft toasty malt also joining in. Quite light, very easy to drink. Carbonation is moderately high, which suits the flavours well.
