500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.
A: A three finger eggshell white head sits on top of a murky dark brown body. There some floaties and yeast visible. I poured it like a hefeweizen with the yeast on top....hope I did that right...oh well.
S: Huge shot of bubble gum, bread and clove. Some underlying caramel as well that I imagine will become more pronounced as this warms up. I’m also getting something reminiscent of root beer.
T: Mmm...nice. Starts watery and light then brings on a full wave of flavor mid-palate and in the finish. More flavor than a standard hefeweizen. You get all the bubble gum, bread and clove plus sweet caramel notes. There’s also a vinous quality I’m having a hard time defining.
M: Watery at first, then some alcohol when the flavor kicks in. Finishes somewhat dry but that just makes you want another sip. Medium to heavy body and carb is soft.
O: Not my favorite Weizenbock (Vitus), but a really nice option for when I want something more interesting than a standard hefeweizen.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Cloudy chocolate brown pour with a two finger off-white head with decent retention and great lacing. Big malty, bready nose with hints of banana, cloves, chocolate, dark fruits, brown sugar, licorice, and caramel. The taste is rich and bold with tons of malty sweet brown bread. banana, plums, caramel, cloves, tobacco, chocolate, anise, apple skin, and some nice subtle citrus hop notes. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy with prickly carbonation and a creamy and slightly oily finish. Overall, another great offering from Schneider Weisse. Kicking myself for living in Germany all these years and not giving Weizens a second chance. Will definitely have this stocked in my beer fridge in the future!
