My first chance to drink this world famous wheat beer. Looked forward to it and finally some arrived circa 2003 production. It appears to be a wonderful hybrid of two beer styles...heffe weizen and dopple bock and the advantages of both beers comes through.
Came in a tall 1/2 liter crown top with a lush looking label with some medieval geezer on it....write up on the beer's bottle fermentation Champaign-like process. Has a coded date and lot code useless to me to decipher.
Poured a clouded mahogany-red with a fine-pored tan cap that stacked out of the glass then stayed as a fine 1 cm cap that rode out the whole drink. Highly effervescent.
Gloriously understated aromas of spice-figs and sweet malt hints of cocoa.
Starts with a peppery, malty departure then builds on the palate and tongue to a rapturous complex mixture of spices, nuts, sweet roasty malt, citrus peel with cocoa undertones with a somehow, full...but clean, gritty body...then the back end changes significantly to a mellow banana-clove overtone with sweet malt and some hop balance....leaving an after taste that is semi sweet and infused with a dozen different lingering spicy tastes leaving the tongue embattled....then...subtle "warming" from the 8%ABV...which doesn't crash down on you as it does in other strong beers that dont hide their Alcohol well.
WoW!! This is bottled ersatz ecstasy ! Back to the LCBO for more, I hope it cellars well.

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!
