NIce malty moderate with some citrus to the nose. Huge head of frothy white micro bubbles. Amber in color. Very lacey legs on the side of a dimpled mug. Cloves and bananas nicely spiced hint of cinnamon and lemons. Medium body weight in the mouth. Watery and very welcomly refreshing. Very good wheat beer.

Recently drank one of these and a Spaten Franziskaner, comparing two Bavarian Hefe-Weiss beers. My wife preferred the Spaten, but I give the Paulaner a very slight edge -- it has a bit more "presence" in flavor and aroma.
I think I’ll have to test the pair all over again! [;-)

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy orange with nice bubbly white head. Aroma is cloves, bubblegum, yeast and banana. Taste is true to the aroma, quite sweet, some malts, dry, smooth with a sort of spicey finish. Moderately carbonated. Very good hefeweissbier.

Lightly cloudy pale yellow poured with a promising head but it faded. Some sweet banana flavor with a tiny bit of herbal stuff. Decent finish.

Hazy orange with a good, light yellow head. Nice lacework. Wheat, malt and citrus in the aroma. Rather dry. If you drink it a bit warm, hionts of cloves and banana becomes more evident. A good Hefeweizen.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 Too carbonated. But very enjoyable to drink, a quality hefe for the price, comparable to franziskaner.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 It’s good, a little "light" for my taste if talking about weize Beers. But while eating a pretzel isn’t any bad.

Wonderful and complex barage of flavor, lost of citrus and spice. if you let it warm a golden honey flavor starts to come through. nice beer.
