So much wheat and yeast reminds me of smell of bread rising as a kid. Cloudy unfiltered yellow with nice head. Traditionally a summer beer but I like it year round not too cold just cool, you have to shake in all the wheat and yeast that settled to th bottom of the bottle to get the most flavor.

Format: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a traditional German macro label.

Appearance: the colour of this beer is a soft straw yellow with constant but fine carbonation. A large white head pops up to three fingers before dropping back to a thick half-finger. Drops away a bit too quickly for my liking.

Aroma: the traditional banana and cloves with some kind of harsh wheat and yeast aromas. Still quite pleasant.

Taste: again the bananas and cloves with the wheats coming through more soft and subtle. Very drinkable.

Aftertaste: the wheat and yeast last the distance and produce a bit of bitterness on the finish.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a moderate carbonation. Decent.

Overall: a nice sessional German wheat beer. Definitely worth it for AU$67 a case of 24. I'll have it again.

Hefeweisen from Paulaner Bräuhaus, my first import wheat brew. Poured from the longneck bottle into a pint glass, adhering to the "spin'n'smack" technique to get all of the yeast in with the rest of the contents. Its got very nice lacing lacing, a two finger thick head, and a hazy golden body.

Smells like traditional banana, clove, and bubblegum. Just a little though, you've really got to inhale it to get a full understanding.

Tastes like bubblegum and clove. Just enough to surround your tongue as it goes down. Not a whole lot of banana-like elements in this category. This is a very refreshing brew.

Quite a smooth mouthfeel. Very clean and crisp. Very nice job here!

Overall an outstanding 4 is given to Hefeweisen from Paulaner Bräuhaus. I'm very glad I got to experience a true German summer Hefeweisen. This style is certianly going to resonate with me and I'll miss it dearly during the off-season. So drink up, cheers!!!
