3.08/5 rDev -22.8%
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.

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.

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!!!"

3.8/5 rDev -4.8%
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.

Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with lots of tight white head. Nose has a light malt base with a strong fruity ester of lemon and faint candied sugar. Hops are grassy and herbal behind. Taste is similar, a hint thin in the back. Less malt body, tangy yeast and fruity esters. Lemony, light farmhouse note with some grassy hops in the finish. Lighter body with softer carbonation and a smooth palate.

A- Hearty yellow color, a bit cloudy, but on the less cloudy side of the spectrum for most wheat beers, long lasting head even with gentle pour. Poured, swirled, and finished pouring as is custom
S- Fairly spicy, picking up strong clove and spice, more burnt banana bread than actual banana in the background
T- Gentle nose, smoky clove in the middle, a little more clove/spice in the end with a hint of banana bread
M- Pleasant enough, very round and lingering finish
O- Quality brew, nothing really outstanding or overwhelming, but it is a pleasant drink with no real negative attributes. Would certainly drink again but I typically pursue beers with a bit more personality
