Look: clear, dark brown, good head retention fluffy head, medium carbonation. Aroma: dark stone fruit with a grainy malt aroma. Burnt caramel, toasty malts. There is a bananas fosters aroma. Some alcohol aroma. Flavor: extra ripe stone fruit some alcohol, mild hops. Roasty and caramelized malts. Feel: medium plus body, lively carbonation. Overall this is a delicious and perfect example of this style of beer.

First heard about Schneider Weisse from a Bavarian-German international student at a UC San Diego beer club meeting. He claimed to be from a town, Kelheim, which hosted the worlds best Weizenbier brewery, Schneider Weisse. My interests were piqued, so I knew I had to try some of their wares out. After much searching and coming up empty handed, I found it at a Whole Foods and settled for their premium pricing. $5/500ml

Amber colored. Enjoyed warm ~60F, so it poured nice and frothy. A head about 2 fingers thick formed. First impression of this beer was its intense estery aroma. Very sweet and bread-like. Some quite nice yeasty flavors. Very smooth and nicely sticky.

This was an impressive and very drinkable doppelbock/weizenbock. Very well rounded and very well executed. Definitely world-class. Looking forward to more from this brewery!

Half liter bottle served in a weizen glass. This beer is brown and cloudy, which makes for a stark, intriguing look in the glass -- dark, but not the typical of dark ales (or stouts/porters). Small dark tan head which falls quickly. Aroma is of uncooked bread dough. Flavor is distinctly Aventinus. Fantastic spicy clove and grain flavors from the yeast. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light, with fine carbonation. Finish is neutral. This beer is fantastically drinkable, which is especially impressive when you consider it's essentially a Doppelbock that happens to be brewed with wheat (I often find Doppelbocks chalky and quickly tiring to my palate). What really gets me though is the depth of flavor that carries over the tongue. It's just a series of fantastic wheat and barley flavors complemented by German style hops, impeccably balanced. This beer is perfection and I hope they never change it.

One of my favorite beers ever since I first tried it over 10 years ago. There's no excuse for me not drinking this more often -- it's widely available and reasonably priced.

From a bottle that was several months old.

Dark toffee colored, a little hazy, one inch of fine bubbles. A lot going on in the nose: some banana, a little clove, a little bubblegum, some dark candy and apple. Tastes like it smells, with a wheat bite. Esters everywhere.

Mouthfeel is great, creamy but still a little sharp on the tongue, due to the wheat.

I love this beer, it's like a cross between a dubbel (some dark sugar taste), a tripel (banana), and a wheat. That combination sounds weird on paper, but it works wonderfully. This is one of the best beers I've ever had. (I've had it on tap as well; it's even better in that format.)

Such an amazing beer. Perfectly balanced. Great flavor profile and it packs a really nice subtle punch too.
