A - Opaque brown, with light coming through on the edges. Big head on the pour that reduces quickly. Almost no lacing, but a persistent haze over the top.

S - Floral notes, spice (cloves and allspice, cardamom) and mild fruit hints, mostly banana and dark fruits, raisin and plums.

T - Tea and banana, a subtle grain, raisin and other dark fruits. Close is lightly bitter, carbonic.

M - Crisp, clean and smart. Carbonation keeps it so easy to drink, and the ABV is utterly hidden.

O - This is a great beer that keeps its bigness well managed and controlled. Another example of how German beers deliver.

Poured from a bottle dated "bottled on 8/2/2013" into a weizen glass.
Appearance - pours a dark brown, but a dark sunset orange hue is present when against the light; a huge, fluffy white head that dissipates into a thin layer that sticks around. Nice layered lacing!
Smell - cloves, some coriander, brown sugar, banana bread, spice and a hint of the alcohol.
Taste - sweet and refreshing like a hefeweizen, but the balance of the malts and dark fruit make this work so well!
Feel - this ultimately hides the alcohol exceptionally well, considering the presence in the nose.
Overall - I get the felling I am going to crave this on a warm Fall or Spring day in CO; really good beer!

Good brew! Smooth, low IBU, dark fruits, wheat, banana, spices. This was different than the Ayinger weizenbock that I've had. Beeradvocate lists this as a "weizenbock" but they take different approaches to the style. Excuse my memory, but the Ayinger version seemed more what I would imagine a weizenbock to taste like. This reminded me much more of a dopplebock. While I will certainly drink a dopplebock, it isn't my favorite German style (although my second highest reviewed beer is a dopplebock... go figure). If I were to compare this to Ayinger's dopplebock: "Celebrator" I'd have to rate this one below that beer. Celebrator is at the top of the charts. This Schneider seems like a hybrid weizenbock and dopplebock together. I can respect that. It's tough for me because I'm not sure what I should review this as. A Weizenbock, a dopplebock, or just the pure enjoyment of the beer. The thing that this beer has going for it is that it seems like a dopplebock you can enjoy all year round. Celebrator is one of those beers you enjoy during the cold months. Its meant to be drank at a warmer temperature. This one seems like it would work even during warm days because its like it is asking to be drank at a cooler temperature. idk, just my take on this beer. Good stuff!
