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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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
