3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy peach amber briefly topped by a quarter inch of white foam. Minimal head retention, slim lacing. Mild sweet wheat and lots of clove in the aroma.
The malt flavor is a blend of an almost honeyed sweet malt and a dry tang wheat. Lots of clove flavor in there too, minimal ripe banana and yeast. The finish is quite dry, almost dusty, with some hop presence and a touch of citrus.
Light body, light carbonation. Fairly smooth. Good enough beer, and I really shouldn’t knock it, but I’d prefer a fresh brewpub hefe any day. Caveat: I am not a clove fan.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 Bottle. Pours a light orange color with a huge, foamy white head that leaves thick lace down the glass. Aroma of citrus, orange, grass, dry. Really great smell. Taste is creamy, fruity, smooth and sweet. Very refreshing. This is a great Hefe.

Nice Heffe. The right amount of carbonation and a nice fruity finish. Well done. I’ll come back to this one in the summer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok. Muddy golden, lively creamy head. Evident papery banana aroma. Sweetish with soft mouthfeel - perhaps a bit mellow. A fair amount of esters and a solid body makes for a pretty good standard weizen.

(Tap) Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma of citrus and banana, with light spice in the flavor. Mouthfeel a little light compared to some of the better examples of the style. A good hefeweizen, but not the best I have had.

Draft - Munich. Nothing like a Paulaner in a Paulaner Brew Pub. Banana and lemon aroma with a sweet but smooth finish.
