look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured chilled in shaker pint glass

A: cloudy amber color; good head and good carbonation
S: very yeasty, Belgian-like; compelled me to return for repeat sniffs, a longer time than normal
T: salty, sprite-like beer; baking soda dominates in the absence of hops; hints of cardamom

Overall, not that impressed; the brewery's other offerings I've found to be better fare.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 1666060514. AROMA: wheat profile with vanilla and clove notes with a slight banana aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: deep gold color and hazy. large white head with good retention. TASTE: sweet wheat background with a complementary vanilla character. odd undescribable flavor. persistent medium-low bitterness and a medium-dry finish. PALATE: medium-light body and high carbonation. OVERALL: altough it has a nice aroma, there is an odd flavour present. but it is still a good weizen.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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!!!"

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

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.
