i had no idea these guys did a wheated octoberfest. so glad they do, its amazingly tasty, and a wonderful contrast to all the marzel lagers going right now. this one is pale hazy straw colored with a lovely inch and a half of white head that tries but cant hang on. the nose is sweet from the wheat, uncovered by the yeast like i expected it to be, quite delicate for its 6% abv, and rather robustly grain forward. there is an apple nose too, and it comes through in the taste, especially in the finish. almost like cider meets wheat beer. the yeast is interesting, with some fruitiness but super dry at the end. the wheat adds a lot to this traditional style, really ramping it up to something that feels both distinct and historic. the germans still do some clever stuff, and they probably deserve a little more credit among american beer geeks for beers like this one. its really tasty, richer in feel but still dry and airy from the carbonation. it just feels like fall. far better than the regular paulaner oktoberfest, although i like that one too.

I love this beer. I bought a sixer earlier this week and followed up with a 12-pack shortly thereafter. Felt totally strange carrying the cardboard 12-pack around, but once the beer was busted out of it, all was right.

Pours clarified blonde with short, finely bubbled head. Nice looking lager. Biscuit and booze on the nose, with light spice and a hint of pineapple. Malty and sweet. Flavor is like liquid bread...with alcohol. Buttery apple and pear fruit and bread fades into only slightly astringent bitterness at the back of the tongue, really faint coconut aftertaste. Nice medium light mouthfeel. This beer executes on all levels.

I've had a lot of Paulaner, but this is surely one of their standouts.
