A classic, nice, and reliable Weissbier.

Presentation: 33 cl brown capped bottle. Classic and slightly old fashion label with a golden framed scene of a rural Bavarian biergarten with the Paulaner branding. Small note on the back notes exclusive Paulaner brewing, and adherence to the Reinheitsgebot. Shows best before date 08/12, and 5.5% Alc. by Vol. Served in a Weissbier glass.

A - Hazy deep gold pour, rich frothy head, good retention, surface memory and lacing. Pity about the small bottle, which does not quite pay homage to the full Weissbier glass…

S - Nice nose, wheaty and yeasty, with classic notes of banana, clove, caramel…

T - Extended in the mouth with a nice yeasty wheat sense, longer caramel over the banana, clove, and an emerging bubble-gum dash…

M - Medium body, medium to moderate carbonation with a nice creamy sense…

O - Nice and classic Hefe-Weizen, easy and pleasing flow.

Notes: Maybe this would deserve higher notes on a different serving, but the small six-pack with the 33cl bottles is pretty versatile and this one typically works nicely socially, so well worth keeping an eye out for it. One of those that I had taken from granted among my reviews and if BG hadn't reminded me of it, I may have not made a note about it. Gracias :)

I typically avoid wheat beers, but this one has a very nice flavor. Very drinkable with hints of citrus.

I thought this was very tasty, and a very smooth and extremely drinkable beer. Poured golden with creamy white head that it retained forever. Has a crisp citrusy flavor. One of the best Hefeweizens out there, this is a great beer. Aroma was very pleasing as was the mouthfeel.

Poured form a 500ml bottle

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow. Very impressive head, it seemed to want to climb out of the glass. Eventually, it dissipates to a layer of small bubbles.

S: A little bit of citrus/lemon, as well as some wheat and of course cloves. A little bit of banana, but not as strong as other hefeweizens.

T: The banana flavor is much more pronounced on the taste, the lemon flavor is more intense as well. The wheat and a yeasty flavor hit on the back end.

M/D: Medium bodied with good carbonation, very refreshing and easy to drink. A great example of a Hefeweizen.

11.2oz bottle poured into a Weizen glass.

A: Pale, cloudy golden color with a monstrously thick white head. Retains extremely well, leaving nice lacing all along the glass. The color is rather typical for its style, but what really sets the appearance over the edge is the glorious head that just seems unwavering.

S: Kind of lemony and citric. Undertones of banana, wheat, and clove. Very clean, very fresh.

T: Banana comes to mind instantly, with a spicy clove bite. Malty sweetness all throughout, with very light, almost non-existent hop bitterness. Finishes with a nice yeasty touch.

M: Very creamy, due to the massive head. Carbonation is a little overbearing at first, but it seems to settle as the beer sits in the glass for a few minutes.

O: An extremely good example of the style. While I still prefer the world-renowned Weihenstephaner Hefeweiss over this, I would definitely go back to this beer in a heartbeat on a warm day out with good friends. Give this one a shot if you have a chance to pick it up.

Living here in Germany - Definitely my one of my Hefe go-to's. I like how the clove overpowers the banana notes. Their Dunkle-weiss is also very nice.

Ive had this stuff on tap over at Old Chicago a couple weeks ago. Was pretty happy with how smooth it was, I mean when you think of most hefenweizer's all you think about it floating wheat/yeast.

I would say the appearance is great , Im a huge fan of gettin tanked and have a floater. The smell was someone average reminded me somewhat of a bluemoon smell but a bit differnt.

Now taste was the best part of the beer , I was slammin down a 20oz monster mug with some pizza and other foods ... mixed very well and did have the smooth, rich , and hefenweizer taste to it

As for both mouthfeel and drinkability would be very high, I could drink this stuff in the day time and still want more. Really is one of the smoother Hefe Weizen's out there. You fans gotta give this one a shot.

A- nice cloudy with a pleasing yellow color forms a lot of head upon pouring.

S- smells slightly of cloves and yeast, maybe a little bit of banana

T- this is a spicier tasting weizen, with the clove flavor coming out a lot stronger then the banana. A little bit of a yeast flavor, but for a weizen, i think its a pretty good flavor

M- I think this is the only thing on the beer i feel that could be improved, since it seems a little thin, not extremely, but a little.

D- i think this would be a lovely beer for a warm day, extremely refreshing. it would also pair really well with spicy food due to the spicy flavor the yeast gives out, i will buy this again, its a pretty decent hefeweizen

Pours orange/yellow, very hazy with serious foam and lacing. Lots of good chunks floating around, very carbonated. Smells very light, banana, floral, yeast, citrus. The taste follows the nose, very light citrus, banana, yeast tones. This is a great summer beer, not too heavy but loaded with flavor. Light to mild medium beer, good any time of year.

Pours cloudy golden yellow - very active fizz, but develops a small head with no noticable lacing.

Very pleasing smell - bananas, citrus, yeast, bread. Its all in there.

The taste is classic hefe - citrusy with a lingering yeast taste. Some tartness. Little noticable hop taste. Less fizzy than anticipated in the mouth.

A very drinkable hefe - drinking mine a little out of season (not necessarily the ideal winter beer - can imagine having this after mowing the lawn.

Appearance- golden amber color with tall clean white head and lots of clean lace.

Smell- Strong fragrant fruity and floral esters, definitely some banana, and a light yeasty spiciness

Taste- An extremely refreshing brew, full of light fruit flavors- some banana and maybe lemon, balanced yeasty spice, clean wheat and pale malt flavor, and a crisp dry, almost bready finish

Mouthfeel- light but satisfying, with nearly perfect carbonation.

Drinkability- Excellent and refreshing, a perfect beer to down outside as the weather warms in springtime, or on a hot summer day. I could have quite a few of these before feeling the need to slow down.
