Paulaner Munich (München)
Hefeweizen, Natural Wheat
I love how the website, being German made, asks if you are over 16 to enter the website! In America the drinking age is 21! Check out the animated beer garden including the friars drinking at a table, with intermittent laughter and sounds of the outdoors, including a fly landing on the table…wanting to drown in your beer. It’s like a virtual vacation!
Wheat beers, especially the German ones have a tendency to remind me of the Belgian style ales, which showcase intense herbs (coriander), sometimes floral, like a potpourri—but here’s the thing I’ve noticed about hefeweizen: add the lemon and the floral flavor is gone and the taste takes another turn, bringing out the lemon and citrus tones of the brew. I’m not a regular German wheat beer consumer, but this experience in the tasting gave me appreciation for flavor. Another thing I really loved about this beer was the great artwork of the label on the bottle—check out the awesome garden party with the country folk, enjoying a beautiful day with beer stein in hand held high!
