Definite banana aroma. Appearance and head are wonderful. Nice.............. JohnDo2000 (99) - Metairie, Louisiana, USA - JUN 2, 2002
I tasted this beer in the states and in England. Thought it was much better in England. The initial taste was sour in the states, but the aftertaste (the best quality of this particular beer in my opinion) was about the same in the states as it was in Europe. Very expensive too over here, so I'd only buy it again if I were in Europe.
The taste is a little sweet and sour. Could stand to have a bit more head. Definately not my favorite wheat. Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2002

tasting this beside a franziskaner hefe, letting the monks slug it out in a gastronomic sense: the spaten guy on the label seems more affable-- the paulaner monk looks like he could use a rolaids or something. anyway, this one is more clear than the franz, with just a squeeze more orange in color. fluffy head. more clarity means (evidently) less yeast floating around, so the paulaner retains more of a malt presence, and therefore i like it better. has a green apple aroma and a distant, sweet sauerkraut aroma (tho to admit that i can hear an ompah band in there too will likely demolish my remaining credibility). a balanced flavor, some clove; it wins the taste test over the sharper more lemony spaten. those kooky germans drink this for breakfast, i'll have to try that sometime...

A truly great hefeweissen. A near perfect appearance with a soft, well-balanced head and a nice golden body. Tastes like a hefeweissen should which on the other hand amounts to a not so distinguished characted. All in all, Paulaner sets the standard for Hefes..

I found this to be an average Hefe. I seem to prefer the American HEfe's, but this on was not bad. It think I may try again later due to all the remarks about bad bottles... Bov (13354) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 21, 2002
cloudy orange colour, fine head with a nice lace, banana aroma, floral, very sweet, creamy, heavy, long dry crony and banana finish - bit disgusting at the end Ole (14) - Bröndby, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2002
En dejlig øl. Dejlig frisk. Men prøv også Paulaner Märzen.
A fresh and good beer. One of the best Weissbier. Rutzicka (102) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 19, 2002
It has a nice foam and a beautiful golden-orange colour. It is fresh and pleasant.
