3.84/5 rDev -3.8%
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.

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.

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.
