look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Cloudy dark brown body with some off white carbonation bubbles floating towards the top. This beer had excellent head retention so much so it was hard to notice the lace. It looked amazing.

Smell: It did not have much of an aroma at all. Some grain, caramel and maybe a bit of clove but you really had to dig deep to get it.

Taste: Mild at first but then you get some caramel banana flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is an easy to drink beer. The body would be on the lighter side of medium.

Overall: It was great very refreshing and went well with some curry wurst.

Dear Mom, I had a Paulaner Dunkelweizen today. Its the 5th Wheat Beer that I've had in two days. I am OD'ing on the banana clove thing mom - I can't feel it no more. The beer looked like rust coloured gravy with coagulated whipped egg on top. I didn't wanna do it mom but I had no other choice. It smelled totally generic for the style. Also of spoilt dough wafting with spent yeast. Tasted just like the other four I'd had. Sweet - sour, fizzy, caramelite - not bad mom but just that I wanted it no more. I like Paulaner beers mom, but it was the right thing at the wrong time. I'm sorry mom, but I will wean off wheat for a while and come back again. Come back and do justice to Paulaner Hefe Dunkel.

S-Caramel,wheat.

T- Light, smooth, slightly malty and refreshing.

M-Medium body, low carbonation.

O-Very easy to drink,but must admit,it hit's you in the head very fast. Neverless,you could drink it all day.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Brown-orange, huge head.

Smell: Clove, sweetness.

Taste: Very wheaty, a little spice and yeast/clove flavors come through on later tastes.

Drinkability: OK, kind of generic tasting. Not a lot of interesting flavors going on.

After many lagers here in China, a grocery store had some more interesting beers. Paulaner Dunkel Weiss was kind of a disappointment though. I like their Hefe and was hoping for a yeasty flavored treat, but the yeast flavors took a back seat to the wheat in this beer. Still pretty decent but I probably won't have in a bottle again (maybe on tap!).

Bottle from a grocery store in Warsaw. From notes.

A - Poured a brown colour. Kinda like lake water? Cloudy with good head retention and ok lacing. One finger khaki head to start.

S - kinda weak to be honest. Yeasty and some sweet malt.

T - Sweet dark malt finish prefaced by a wheat, lemon, and yeast combo. Nice with the darker, slightly richer malt profile.

M - Medium carbonation and a light to medium body with a sweetish finish.

O/D - I could have a few but it was nothing overly special. Interesting dunkelweisse.

Pours dark orange with effervescent white head that soon fades to thin patchy layer, almost no lacing. Aroma is ripe bananas, bread and bits of alcohol.

Taste is similar to aroma, bready malt, bananas and weak citrus. Medium/full body with moderate carbonation, more of it could be desired.

Overall, although it provided some refreshment, this beer seemed a bit boring and disappointing to some extent.

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.
