500ml on can. Present from beer rater Catweazle (thanks!) Yellow golden with a nice white head mostly lasting. Hazy body. Aroma of sweet grain and citrus. Sparkling. Light bodied mouthfeel, but well balanced flavour with the sweetness of banana and the acidic of lemon. A touch of malt in a rather short ending.

Great wheatbeer. Colour is pale yellow with a smoky feel. Aroma is very much wheat and a lot of banana from the yeast. Taste is sweet to begin with then enhances to a dynamic mix of berries, hops and banana flavours. Very highly carbonated as well.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s, "Produced on 09/05." Had a rather wretched Ekstra hefe last night, luckily I had this along to help clear the palate. I a tall wheat glass, pours a somewhat creamy orange color under an inch-thick head. Big banana and clove smell at first, then undercurrents of bubblegum and lemon. This carries through in the taste, with additional notes of coriander and vanilla. Definitely a summer beer; I stored this at 45°, and on a chilly spring evening, it feels way too cold. Softened water for a slightly buttery finish. Hews straight to the style, with no excessive malt of hop characteristics.

Pours slightly hazy and orange-yellow with a thin head, leaves a little lacing. The pleasant aroma is of yeasty malts and citrus. The flavor is sweet and fruity, and the finish is light and refreshing. This is a respectable, if uncomplicated, hefeweizen, great when you want something light.

Unclear golden, white head that leaves a little laces; Quite simple malty, buttery nose, some freshness of clove and citrus; Great carbonation in a balanced body to the acidy side; Very soft, quite long, but watery finish, again with clove.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Sparkling, hazy orange beer with yeast-clouds drifting in it. Nice, medium, off-white head. Lots of banana-esters when poured, but they calm down after a while, and yeast and cloves finds their places. A bit thin mouthfeel with flavors of banana, lemon, cloves and some yeast. The finish has some metallic notes, as well as spices. Best enjoyed in a Bavarian Bier-garten on a hot summer day. (060324)

Hefeweizen is my favorite style of beer. This beer met & exceeded all my expectations. i had it w/ some traditional German rye & sunflower seed buttered bread (www.pema.de ;sold under ’Bavarian’ name in U.S.); and the combination was heaven. smooth, tasty, & savory. there will always be a spot in my fridge for paulaner.

Bottle: Yellow orange cloudy colour, aroma is fruity and heavy on wheat. Taste is typical hefe with notes of banana, bread dough and vanilla. Lack a bit of character for the style; I don’t understand the commercial description.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 One of my favorite wheat beers! Golden orange color with a light golden head. The body looks dirty and murky, and it has a sweet grain smell to it. The palate creamy and smooth. I always have a six pack in my fridge... it goes with preety much everything.
