Pous a cloudy, hazy, dirty/rusty water yellow/orange. When I was younger I lived in a 4plex where the water came out of the tap that same color the first 3-4 minutes... ewww. Not so good when it's your water, but kind of interesting when it's your beer. The light sort of hits the middle and reflects back out. Tall fluffy cream colored head, minimal lacing. Aroma is bannana bread, and not much else. flavor is sourdough bread & bannanas, with some clove spicyness in the background, and a lemony citrus finish. Some bannana also noted in the finish. crisp and refreshing.

Classic hefeweizen look: pale yellow color, impressively tall head, cloudy translucent body with an inner glow. Aroma has the banana nut muffin quality with the yeasty and bready notes predominant. It is typical of the style, but is not as strong as most others. Taste is again dominated by the yeast with sour dough, clove, citrus fruits, and bananas shining through. Typical German hefeweizen mouthfeel, but is a bit more yeasty.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 Comes in the long neck brown 330ml Euro crown top bottle. Had freshness date. The pour was a delightful cloudy orange-amber with plenty of effervescence and a great puffy white Meringue of a head that pushed out of the glass then settled down to a clinging lace after a few quaffs. Odors of citrus peel clove and nutty yeast undertones. Starts with a blast of prickly carbonated citrus hop tastes then smoothes back on the palate with a creamy balance of nutty yeasts sweet malt and tart hop...then the finish is tart citrus with a wonderful subtle banana-bread aftertaste punctuated with a lingering metallic hop effect Very light and refreshing with a bright citrusy mouth feel...a wonderful summer beer....probably one of the better commercially avalable import hefeweizens. Rerated 6/2/04...After sampling a number of german Hefeweizens I return to Paulaner for a session....it is probably the smoothest and mellow-bodied of the imports available widely in Canada.

Overall I liked this beer, rich banana aroma capped by a dynamite taste; what more could you want? Only drawback is the color which seemed to be a little odd for a hefeweizen.

A pretty standard German weisse. A bit yeasty and fruity. Well balanced.

Banana is the one word which comes to mind. This is a most excellent Hefeweizen

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - MAR 20, 2004
aromas of clove, bananaand yasty bread aromas. hazy golden color with a substantial head. sour orange and creamy wheat flavors a slight nuttiness perhaps apples like fujis. dryish finish. quite refreshing. doesnt have a tremendous complexity, but is easy to drink without to much thought.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Looks, smells, and tastes like a hefeweizen. Banana and clove aromas. Cloudy golden color, big frothy head. Fruity, slightly tart flavor. A little more wheat flavor and a little more bitterness than other German examples. Smooth mouthfeel. Good example of the style.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Bottle. Dusty, clovy aroma. Hazy golden colour, big creamy white head. Nice soft mouthfeel. Flavour has a hint of clove, slightly watery. Aftertaste is very mild.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Cloudy yellow, white head. Tall weizen glaas, tap. Banana phenolic typical aroma. But I am not a big banana fan. Malty beer with a nice lingering malt profile. Banana and clove flavors mixed in nicely. Quaffable.
