Im not diggin the taste . This beer was on a room temp shelf a the local LS. The bottle date was 3/09. Kinda, well alot nutty to me. Can taste a little spice. That about all. Any body have any input to add. IS it just me or is it bad????? Im into my 2nd bottle. Ive had alot of diff beers but this my be a dud.

I dig that beer. Hefe's have an incredibly short shelf life though. Some argue you can't get a fresh hefe unless it's domestic. 3/09 sounds pretty f'ing old for that style of beer. I was drinking off a Paulaner keg the other night at the local ale house. Really good. Actually it's basically a world class example of the style.

However I still prefer Weihenstephaner, , Scheider Weisse, Ayinger or Hacker-Pschorr probably in that order.

In fact Weihenstephaner Korbinian, Dunkelweiss, and Schenider Aventinus are probably 3 of my favorite beers in the world.

Ok, I was thinking it was kinda old too . Its not bad but I too think 7 months at room temps may be pushing it. Im actually waiting for my dunkel and hefe shipment from northern to come in, possibly this week end then I can make a fresh batch.

Those are all good too, but my top three would be Bamberger Weiss (not exported), Julius Echter and Tucher...

Nice, is that because you've been to Germany 99? My wife has family in Erzgeberg Germany. Its in the eastern mountain range. They are known for Nutcrackers and Herbal Schnapps, not like the stuff here in the States. I think we may be going soon to visit. Need at least 2 weeks to browse

Yes. I lived in Augsburg for 4 years (1975-1979) and outside of Bamberg for 5 years (1999-2004).

I've also vacationed there from the States/business trip about 4 times between 1980 and 1994...

I went over on a business trip for 2 weeks in the summer of 2006, my last time there.


Are you from Vineland? I'm from Camden.

Paulaner is one of my favorite commercially brewed Hefes. I thought it has a spicy clove taste to it, something that is true to hefes. I could probably drink 3 or 18 of them at any given time

Well, I actually left Camden way back in the 60s. Lived in So Philly until '67 then back to Woodlyn/Collingswood before moving to Atlantic City in 1969.

Came out to IL in '87...NC in '97-'99 then Germany til '04. Retiring in January '10.

Excuse the sarcasm, but I guess your like an elder around here. Im new here, but made a few friends that deeply like to help out alot. Im grateful.
