2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, yellowish golden with a surprisingly small head. Lacks the yeasty, fruity nose normal for the style. Some yeast in the flavour, but not very pronounced. Rather dry with only hints of sweetness and an absent bitterness. Surprisingly bland for Paulaner that usually guarantees higher quality. 191099

Bottle. Nice, refreshing mouthfeel without being too light. Light fruit, cloves, and a little hop finish all add upto a serviceable everyday-kind of hefe.

Smells like a hefe, looks like a hefe. Smooth going down. Doesn’t have a good bite to it. This will do if you want to have a great standby beer. Liked it a little to mellow for my hefe taste

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy gold with a big lacy ivory head. Smells of spicy cloves and light banana aroma.
Tastes of wheat malt and spices. Cloves and light pepper. Ripe banana and sweet flavors. Lightly fruity and lightly sour. A nice lightly spicy aftertaste. Really tasty. And smooth. And creamy. Very good beer. Maybe the best Hefe I’ve had.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2006 Pours light golden and hazy with a white frothy head. Aroma is banana, bubble gum, cotton candy and toasted malts. Taste is bready with a spicy yeast character that has trouble living up to the aroma. Notes of toasted malt, wheat, and cookie are also present. Tart and lightly acidic finish. Body is thin and highly carbonated. Quite enjoyable. Despite having tried hundreds of beers, this is still one of my favorites.
