Pours a very nice orange-gold colour with nice fluffy head and great lacing. The hop smell is huge in this one - even stronger than Mein Grünes. It also reminds me of Belgian yeast, although I doubt there is any in there. Great complex flavour, which is quite a departure from the normal hefeweizen if you ask me. Very dry mouthfeel, but oily at the same time. No idea how that is possible... Very nice beer overall.

Note: This is from the actual Schneider Weisse brewery in Kelheim.
A - Not a bad looking beer; small head with a cloudy, unfiltered burnt orange color. A decent amount of carbonation.
S - The bitter hops instantly strike, but it is eventually accented with scents more typical of your German Hefe, including citrus and clove. A really unique aroma which I haven't really encountered before, but it is extremely pleasant and inventive.
T - Complexity is apparent from the first sip; wheat and banana are the initially apparent, with a little clove, but as you near the middle the bitter hops give it a really strong kick, and then finishes with a brief hint of the higher alcohol content, floral accents, and a conspicuous yet charming sourness.. I've heard some refer to it as having a gin-aspect to it, which I can see.
M - The carbonation lightens the heavier consistency of the beer, medium bodied but on the heavier side. The bitter hops leave a sort of tingle behind every sip and the sourness lingers just a bit, which is quite a delightful ending.
O - A very complex beer that almost leaves you lost for words; the best way I can describe it would be the golden-child of a Hefe and IPA. Sweet yet sour, fruity yet bitter, this is a beer which should be experienced for those who love beers which bend boundaries. It is by far the most experimental German beer I've encountered and it does it well.

Golden honey colour with a great creamy noggin. The nose is surprisingly subdued, piney, orange zest, touch of burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is off the charts here equally creamy and crisp, full but refreshing. A touch oily which is always appreciated. Flavour is fully in the bitter citrus arena. Hops are evident but only mildly bitter. Perhaps late addition hops? Herbal and very citrusy like fresh squeezed bitter orange/bergamot. Delicious. Not crazy complex in that there aren't a million different flavours going on but what does come through comes through like a delicious laser beam of flavour.
Really delicious and refreshing. An excellent brew.

A perfect summer beer. Its a perfect balance between a weissen and an Ipa. You have the mouthfeel, the cloudyness, and the yeast taste from a schneider and you add hop. If youre a hop head and you want something crist, clear, clean and tasty, thats the beer you want to try.

This beer pours just beautifully. It has a huge creamy white head that lasts forever. The beer itself is entirely opaque and is a very deep straw color.
The nose is wheaty, with some good light fruit esters, but these are dominated by some nice noble hop notes, hey, its a hoppy wheat beer!
The taste is a bit disappointing. It has the up front flavors of a typical wheat or hefeweizen but this quickly fades away to a grapefruity hoppiness that I don't think matches all that well with the wheat base. It is a rather strange combination to go from smooth wheat to grapefruity hops, a little odd.
This is interesting but not something I'd buy again.
