Served from a 16.9 oz bottle.
Pours with a massive off white/light beige head that settles down to a thin layer of foam.
Beer is much darker in appearance than other examples of this style; It's medium deep amber and exceptionally clear.
Yeast comes through strongest in the nose, with some grainy wheat notes as well.
There is also a noticeable smokiness.
Yeast and the same smokiness also come through in the taste.
Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side but there is a pleasing level of carbonation.
To sum up, this is far from my favorite example of the style, but it is not without merit.
I wouldn't use it to introduce people to the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Darker than expected, mid-toned brownish amber. Thick head, slow moving carbonation trickles up from the bottom of the glass.

S: Most resembling a twist on a Belgian style wit. But, with toasted caramel malts and banana and orange citrus.

T: Bitter and toasted malt. Hops slap with a bitter and phenolic backhand with esters aftershock. Not as smooth as expected or led to believe by my nose.

M: Slightly soapy, medium carbonation.

D: Eh....

I think I've fallen victim to yet another somewhat aged bottle. But, I don't think my palate was tainted too much by that. I'll find another bottle from a different store, compare notes, and amend review if necessary.

Hands down the worst hefeweizen, no, the worst wheat beer, I've ever had. Kinda pissed it cost me $4.50 for a pint bottle.

Color is gross. Considering it's a hefeweizen. It's brown. Big head like a hefeweizen should have though.

Smell is the best part. Banana, some taffy, a touch of clove I guess, but then alos some wet cardboard or something.

Taste - Kind of oxidized? Some over ripe banana. Taste falls flat., Not any strong flavors. slightly watered down.

Mouthfeel - a little too watery.

Overall, buy any hefeweizen but this one.

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle. Left a big hefe-weizen head that had some decent retention, and a little bit of lacing. Body was a cloudy apple cider-like color, sort of a cloudy light brown. A different look than most h-w's, but looked decent.

Smell - plums, cherries, hint of cloves, hint of creamy wheat. Classic h-w aromas were subdued, came off like a weak bock.

Taste - similiar to the smell. Plums, cherries, some creamy wheat. Cloves were stronger in the taste than the smell, but still rather subdued by h-w standards. Finished a bit sour.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, fairly fluid, slightly creamy.

Drinkability - good, not great. The fruity flavors were different for an h-w, and they were decent, but this lacked the classic h-w characteristics (clove, bananas, creamy wheat ). I'd have this once in awhile.

Bought at Bert's Bier Huis in Utrecht

From a bottle into my Weizen glass.

APPEARANCE: A darker colour for a weizen. Kind of an opaque rust-mahogany; a darker orange-brown colour. A medium-big fluffy white head disappears slowly and ends in a film. Decent lacing remains on the glass. A decent amount of carbonation evident; more than average. Colour is unique and looks nice.

SMELL: Wheat malt and some bready yeast as well. The scent of dough and some slight banana in the background, but not much.

TASTE: More wheat malt and yeast as well. Taste of bread is there and a slight bit of sour dough and citrus lemon creep through as well. No real banana or lemon esters evident; the malt is definitely more prevalent. Not bad but not that interesting. Bread becomes more prevalent as it warms.

PALATE: Medium-thin body is well carbonated, but not too much. Goes down very smooth and slightly creamy. No bite and finishes slightly sticky. Decent, but could be a little fuller.

OVERALL: A decent weizen, but missing that banana / lemon character that makes the German style unique. Malt is more prevalent and that bread taste comes through strongly. It's a drinkable brew and it has a beautiful colour, but not something I'd crave. There are better in the style.

This bottle is labeled:" Schneider Weisse Tap 7 Unser Original". Poured into a mid-sized water glass impeding the ability to get a good head and see the yeast tailings. The head I did get disappeared right away after the first pouring and had no lace. Second pouring had better head, still no lace and settled out quick. Aroma is yeast, malt, a bit of spice, and citrus. Flavor's like aroma with some nice sweet almost tart and a bit of bitter. Body is good but carbonations seem a bit low. Finish is like flavor and has a citrus character that lasts a while. This bottle was cool only, maybe cellar temp. Believe it or not, the Schneider Origianal that I have at home is better than this! Much better.

A - Uniform cloudy orange. Medium sized, creamy white head. Good retention and lace.

S - Sharp, tart, and lemon smell.

T - I see the bubblegum thing. There's some bitterness in the finish, but mostly a dry, citrusy taste.

M - Carbonation is biting. Medium bodied. A bit crisp.

D - OK I guess, but not on my gotta have it list by any means. Maybe I'll try again on a hot day in the summer.

Nice wheat beer with small head. I would have like a bigger head that would have stayed longer... Light brown colour. Very refreshing beer for the summer wothout being too distinct or exceptionnal. A little bit more spcie would also have been appreciated

Do you like Hefe-Weizen beers? If so, you will like this beer. There is nothing too outstanding about it, it is simply good example of a Hefe-Weizen. There's nothing great about it, which is part of its problem. Its a bland hefe. I'd take Weihenstephaner over it, but I'd be willing to buy Schneider Weisse again, despite its blandness
