Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
First brewed in 1984, Schell’s Hefeweizen is made with a blend of wheat malt and barley malts. We use an authentic wheat beer yeast culture, which gives the beer a fruity ale character dominated by a citrus-like tartness. Refreshingly light character with a higher than normal carbonation level. Straw-colored and cloudy from the unfiltered yeast left in suspension. Notes of banana and clove with a slight bready malt flavor.

Poured on-tap into weizen glass.
A: Pours a hazed yellow hue with thin white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Soft banana, clove, and wheat notes.
T: Banana, clove, and soft wheat. A smidge stronger than the aroma promised.
M: Light body. Smooth and creamy. Soft feel.
D: A solid and very consistent brew. A nice example of style.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a whipped egg white head that is adequate but not quite up to the German standard; a few strand of lace cling to the side of the glass

Smell: Banana bread with a strong clove and pepper aspect

Taste: Banana bread up front - nothing surprising here; but in the middle there is an explosion of clove, vanilla and pepper spice that continues into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but not quite creamy enough; moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Been looking to try this one for a while now and the persistence has finally paid off; the spice kick on this beer is non-traditional but a great American angle on the style

Thanks, copslovebeer, for the opportunity

Picked up a 12er of this with a BB date of 092913, enjoyed a couple bottles of this, time for a review.

A-Poured into a tall pilsener glass this beer explodes into a white fluffy heady beast with big time staying power and lacing. Light golden in color, slightly hazy with suspended yeast with lots of small bubbles.

S-Estery banana aroma is strongest with a weak phenolic clove character. Plenty of bready, grainy wheat aroma. Very nice.

T-The taste is more balanced between the banana and clove character with a fairly strong bready wheat taste. A weak bitter hoppy finish.

M-Medium bodied with a soft taste. The carbonation is restrained. Slight creaminess with a bit of a lingering finish.

O-A solid hefe. Nice characteristic appearance and flavor with a nice balance of flavors. Would like a cleaner finish but an enjoyable brew.
