Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a hazy orange in color with a full inch of head. A less careful pour could easily triple the head size I've found. Retention and lacing are robust.

Aromas of banana and orange on the nose, lots of wheat. Improving and expanding as the beer warms a bit, becoming slightly tart but not sour.

Taste follows the nose with banana and wheat. Finishing with more of the orange flavors. Nice body and mouth feel with a lingering sweet breadiness on the finish. Good drinkability.

Preferred over the draft version, seeming fresher and more lively.

Presentation: Poured from the classic, 500ml brown bottle into a weizen glass. The label is the standard Paulaner look, depicting a scene of "typical" German country side life with the Paulaner seal over head. It also looks like the beer may have been produced a year ago, if I am reading the date correctly. We'll see how the beer tastes.

Apearance: Pours with the usual big weizen head, 2-3 inches of foamy, white goodness. The beer itself is a nice apricot amber and cloudy.

Smell: Nice and spicy/fruity. Smells of bananam lemons, and bubblegum.

Taste: Old or not, this beer is still great. Nice carbonation bite. Slightly sweet, without being cloying. Mouthfulls of fruity esters. Noticeable wheat tang.

Mouthfeel: Average level of carbonation, perfect for this style. Nice body.

Drinkability: With the warm weather we have been having right now, drinking a hefe in January is not as wierd as it seems. The easy drinking, fruity style of this beer make it easy to pack a few away on a nice summer day (or winter day!)

12 oz bottle into a large weiss glass. Freshness labeling on the side. Cloudy and pale gold it delivers a generous head of a couple fingers. Good lacing and head retention and a very active carbonation visible throughout.

Smell is heavy on the lemon and wheat malt. Quite twangy and sharp. Light sweetness from the malt is backed up by gentle banana and yeast esters. Banana develops as it warms.

Taste is wheat malt upfront and lemony right after. Good fruitiness follows with light pear and heavier banana. Clean and light hops close it out with a slightly spicy clove and pepper kiss goodbye.

Mouthfeel is tingly and effervescent with a fine layer of carbonation on the mouth. Light medium in weight.

Drinkability is easy and good for sessioning in the summer.

I've had this one with a bit more flavor so I will review it again at some time and see if it holds up. I just remember more bang in the bottle. Freshness date indicates it was produced 03/08

A - Pours hazy orange-gold color.
S - Smells of bananas, cloves, citrus, and yeast.
T - Bread w/ yeast, banana, cloves, and then orange/lemon and yeast.
M - Medium light body with crisp finish.
D - Great drinking beer for the warmer weather.

I really like this Hefe and it is certainly above most others.
