Weiss/Wit/Wheat Week-Paulaner Hefe-Weizen

Wheat!  It's everywhere!

Paulaner is a tasty weissbier that hails from Munich, Germany.  Sold in 330mL bottles, it measures 5.5% alcohol, pours a cloudy yellow colour, and features loads of carbonation.
Paulaner is topped by a lively white head and has tons of lace.  There is a bready aroma coupled with faint notes of orange peel.  Similarly, the taste is doughy and features lots of citrus notes.  There is a medium mouthfeel and loads of fizziness.  The back-end is incredibly sweet...perhaps a little too sweet.

Paulaner is pretty much the prototypical wheat beer.  It has the colour, the cloudiness and the orange peel aroma that I have come to expect.  Weissbiers aren't my favourite style, but Paulaner's merits are hard to deny.  It looks nice, smells great and has an interesting flavour.  The only drawback is the too sweet aftertaste.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.

Also, it has this ridiculously wholesome Alpine scene on the bottle:
