Enjoyed cellar temperature in my weizen glass.

A pint pour produces a huge three-finger white cloud of a head over a very cloudy honey-orange. Beautiful.

This has one of those aromas that just makes me swoon. An absolutely fragrant mix of bananas, vanilla, peaches, lemon zest, nutmeg, cloves, the tiniest hint of haughty cinnamon, and rich, sweet white bread dough.

The flavor fulfills the aroma's tease excellently, presenting a harmonized balance of the sweet and tart fruits, with the banana, lemon, and yeasty bread coming to a climax in the finish. And as the finish dries, the spices from the aroma are just able to be detected as well. Bliss.

Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium to full. A direct relationship which works well.

To me, this hefeweizen is unmatched in its style.

Appearance: Hazy, dark straw/amber color. Long lasting head typical of a wheat beer.

Aroma: Lots and lots of wheat! A tiny bit of clean citrus.

Taste & Mouthfeel: The flavor profile here is very much centered around the wheat, as it’s a very full wheat flavor even for the style, and not much else gets through. There is a touch of banana flavor, but it’s like a green banana or banana Runts candy.

Final Word: This is a well done representation of the Hefeweizen style with the typical wheat/banana aromas and flavors, but it focuses a bit more on a fuller wheat flavor than most Hefeweizens do. This gives it a richer, longer lasting flavor that is still very appropriate for warm weather imbibing. This is a summer beer for those of us that want something refreshing, but with a bit more flavor than some typical warm weather offerings. A great Hefeweizen!

Poured into a standard weizen glass--got a moderate head on it, though it fades very quickly for a weizen. Good aroma, fairly fruity, with strong phenols that are almost bandaidy. The taste is highly fruity, and not very tart compared to my favorite examples. The phenols make a spicy addition. Body is not nearly as carbonated as many other examples, which explains fall of the foam. All the right notes are there, but it just doesn't do much for me. I'm a big fan of weizens but I've never been fond of any of the Schneider ones, despite their good reputation.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 16.9 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Nice gold, mildly hazy. Forms a half-finger of white fluffy head and moderate level of visible carbonation.

S: Wheat and pilsner malts, mild spices and a grassy, vegetal hoppiness.

T: Husky wheat, pilsner and cracker malts, earthy spices and clove, and a mild grassy and citrus hop bitterness. Finishes with spice and graininess. It develops more banana/fruity yeast esters as it warms throughout the drink.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: Fairly enjoyable. It wouldn't ever be a go to beer for me personally, but well-made and a good example of a slightly different take on a classic style.

Not too familiar with the hefe style so I figured it's about time to get my ass in gear. Poured from the bottle into a big friggin tulip glass. Very attractive pour: honey-colored beer and lots of bubbling head. The head dissipated somewhat quickly, and there's a bit of lacing to show for it.

Smell is nothing special: bread, coriander, maybe some clove. Citrus? (I'm Ron Burgundy?)

Taste is solid, but nothing overwhelming. Flavor reminds me of Belgian white ales. And the mouthfeel is nothing to write home about. Pretty standard.

Overall, this is pretty dern drinkable. I'm glad I tried it, but I won't be rushing back to the store to stock my fridge whilst exclaiming, "Oh, sweet nectar of life!!!"
