There's plenty of clove in the aroma along with some yeasty sourness and an earthy undertone; a touch of banana sweetness is also present. The body is a hazy, dull brown with orange-ish highlights and an off-white head. The flavor is initially characterized by a sour, yeasty bite; there is also a good deal of clove-like spiciness and banana-like sweetness. The sourness persists but softens over time and adds to the kick from the clove and carbonation. Some grainy malt is present but subdued. The body is in the mid-range with lively, creamy carbonation and a good bite; the finish is a bit dry with a slight mineral texture.

I have yet to try a noticeably malty dunkelweizen, and Paulaner does not break that trend. In my experience though, when a brewery offers both a weizen and a dunkelweizen, the latter tends to be smoother and rounder. With that in mind, Paulaner's is quite enjoyable. The yeasty tartness is rather prominent but backed up well enough by the other elements not to ruin the experience.
