This was pretty tasty, i really think it has a banana aftertaste to it that is so good, way better on draft though than botlle, but still a tasty treat.

A very good hefeweizen. What it should taste like. Cloudy-golden in appearance, fruity aroma and flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Awesome murky, yellow / brown color. Had an herbacious citrucy taste. Not much carbonation. It was very refreshing and flavorful. Would definitely buy this again.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 Summery, flavoursome German hefeweizen. Poured a bottle-conditioned hazy orange-amber colour, with a thick, lasting head. Herbal character to the sourish aroma - cloves - plus bananas and bubble gum. Sweet, thin-bodied and malty with a light, dry finish. Spices, bananas and honey are the dominant flavours. Wonderfully gentle but bursting with flavour. An exceptional hefeweizen. (Bottle)

Very drinkable and attractive beer. Not a lot of substance to it. More sweetness than anything. Considerable head that departed eventually. Really no negatives to it. Nice beer.

Bottle. Hazy but not cloudy in pour. Dense meringue looking white head. Slightly sharp and minerally with banana and a hint of clove with a little cardboard. Thin and watery in body. Fast finish with a bit of lingering banana flavor. Not my favorite hefe. That said, the draught version is worlds better. Look at the extreme difference in ratings. Even with German engineering, Paulaner can’t give us the Hefe that we would like to have. Try Live Oak.

nice floral nose, lime and banana maybe also. Really refreshing, nice body considering the style, nice moutfeel with the taste buds having a little bit of a fiesta

i could have sworn i had rated this. one of my standard goto hefe’s when i need a hefe. this one is bottle. pours cloudy orange tinted tan with a towering white foamy head. aroma of sweet banana bread and pepper. taste is sweet pear and banana tangy yeast flavor that mixes with the clove/pepper in the finish. very thick mouthfeel that leaves a a lot to chew on when it is gone. a good beer all the way around
