Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a weizen glass.

The beer pours a pale straw color with a pure white, foamy head. The head is not quite as dense as some Weiss beers. It leaves some spotty lacing down the glass.

The aroma is wonderful; cloves and banana, a hint of hops and malt below. very nice.

The taste? Wonderful. Spice and ripe banana right up front a tiny little bit of hop bite that follows. It finishes with a spicy dryness that is very refreshing.

The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

Overall, an excellent and beautifully crafted beer that goes down way too easy and is very crisp and refreshing and loaded with flavor.

12 oz. bottle poured into a chalice.

Appearance - Much hazier than the 1984 version, which is kinda obvious since this one isn't filtered. Orange body. Small white head that settles to a thin collar.

Smell - A little citrusy this time, which was missing from the other version. Lots of wheat. A bit of banana and clove.

Taste - Very light citrus up front. Right into wheat and cracker malt. Doesn't have that wheat intensity in the finish. Instead, bubble gum in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Feels heavier and a little more sluggish to drink. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Quite similar to the 1984 version. Slight differences make this one a bit better.

I believe this is the same beer as Schell's Hefeweizen that they have brewed for the last decade plus. Just reviewing it to compare with the rest of the 30th anniversary Weiss beers. Oddly enough it is the best of the bunch.

Pours a cloudy golden color with two fingers of head that slowly settled to a thick cap. Heavy lacing is left down the glass.

A lot of cloves and bananas in the aroma. Wheat comes through as well and has a slight twang.

Great weizen yeast ester flavors. The cloves and banana notes work nicely with the wheat malt. Has a slightly sweet flavor with a peppery finish.

Light and effervescent body.

Easy drinking and refreshing hefe. A truly class example of the style.

Best by 09/27/14:

Poured into weizen glass:

Pours clouded yellow with a white head that slowly collapses, leaving trailing lace.

The smell is of banana, clove and some citrus.

The taste is of banana/clove with citrus and light floral notes. Wheat tang comes through in the refreshing finish.

Smooth and crisp, this is a very nice example of a traditional Hefeweizen!

Nice sweet shot of banana and then clove. Soft wheat background. A touch of tart.
Full white dense head. Cloudy yellow body as it should be.
Tartness more prominent in drink and it blends into a lemon type of flavor and a drying astringency. Leaves me ready for the next drink. Still holding the clove esp., some banana
Big soft feel from wheat and bubbles and even with that quite smooth.
No need to buy German hefe's when this is around.

12oz bottle with a date and a code and a blurb. From the sampler.

Look is an amber bottle, smell is slight citrus and creamy wheat. Taste has hints of orange and bumblegum, over whole cream and wheaties. Crisp, light, soft, kinda metallic, medium carbonation.

Tasted side by side with the '84 version. The '14 is much closer to the ideal with the flavor notes we've come to expect. Do the "swirl" to pick up the best part.

White head. Hazy straw yellow. Active carbonation.

Flavor profile: bananas, cloves, yeast, bubblegum, wheat, spices, fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with a nice carbonation level. Lighter bodied.

Overall, solid hefe as always. Easy to drink and true to the style.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, huge head.

Smell: Banana, clove.

Taste: Nice sweet banana, some lemon, then back to sweet, cake-like finish.

Overall: Beer #4 in the Schell weiss mixer. The 2014 weiss is an excellent beer and the best beer of the bunch. Excellent balance of sweetness and lemon, very drinkable. The 4 different beers all smelled quite similar and had similar tastes, especially the dampf and 1984. The weizenbock was a little strange due to the hopping, but the 2014 is an excellent example of a hefeweizen.
