A very quaffable beer. Pours out to a slightly dark, golden color with the usual cloudiness from this style. Light clove taste is nice and not overdone. No banana ester taste, which I appreciated.

This is one of the beers that got me over my dislike of beer and I thank Paulaner for that. Light flavor and less bitterness than most beers. I haven't had enough German Wheats to be able to judge it against it's style, though. Good beer.

The gorgeous, billowy, extremely thick and creamy head covers an attractive hazy orange bubbly brew. (It was so appetizing I sipped on the head before getting to the beer itself.) The typical complex yeasty notes of banana, a touch of clove and bubblegum are quite inviting and seem a bit more subdued than other German hefeweizens available. The ultra smooth mouthfeel from the copious wheat protein sets the base for peppery and fruity flavors and a very pleasant residual sweetness. Although certainly non a dominant component in this brew, the hop bitterness just manages to assert itself enough to balance the malt sweetness and add complexity. This is a superbly balanced and flavorful hefeweizen. It should serve as a model as to why microbreweries should stop compromising their integrity when they brew "American hefeweizen" and brew something with real character.

The body is a cloudy, foggy, off white in color/ maybe golden, w/ a decent head. Aroma has a good citrus scent followed by more citrus in the flavor with clove & banana. The finish is crisp & refreshing.

very nice, smooth banana and wheat flavour, this would be a perfect thirst quencher on a hot day, very, very nice stuff.

As I edit this review, I can't help but notice how much more I appreciate this brew on tap. When poured into the correct glass, you can see the cloudy, yeast-infused liquid with a beautiful white head. Creamy and delcious, the smell of this beer is incredible. A strong yeast aroma, combined with a bannana and clove like essence are almost overpowering. Nice yeasty flavor imparts quickly on your mouth, stunning your taste buds. That rich yeast flavor gives it that sour like flavor only found in Hefe's. The texture is a little prickly on your toungue. You you often can't go wrong with a German Weizen and this one is solid, especially on tap.

Very traditional - mellow with moderate yeast character. Smooth and low key.
