I bought a couple of bottles of Schneider Weisse Tap 7 in a tavern. Poured in to a weizen glass.

Pours a nut brown color, more brown than I was expecting. Thick foamy head.

Smell is a sweet fruity aroma, like a honey dew melon.

Taste is a clove spice flavor, and some malted grain, not a lot of fruit or banana flavors.

Mouthfeel is light and clean.

Overall a good Bavarian Style Hefe. The one's i have has before were sweeter, with a lighter golden color, and a banana flavor. But this one is very good.

Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Hazy amber-orange pour with a creamy two finger head with nice retention and great lacing. The nose is classic Hefeweizen with lots of banana and clove along with hints of apple, bready yeast, and subtle caramel. The taste is classic as well with loads of banana, apple, and clove along with hints of pear, lemon, wheat, caramel, nuts, subtle yeast, and just a touch of bubblegum. The mouthfeel is subtly chewy with fizzy carbonation, great balance, and an earthy, dry finish. Overall, I love that the bubblegum that's sometimes overpowering with Hefeweizens is very subtle here. Hugely drinkable for a guy who's not a big fan of wheat beers.

There's really not much to say. I don't love it. I'm not sure I even like it. The pour was mediocre. The head dissipated in seconds. I could hardly take a picture before the head was gone. Also, no lacing.

Smell is a bit on the acidic side: malty, sweet, weak red wine.

Taste is the most impressive quality, but there's nothing worth noting flavor-wise. The champagne-like mouthfeel is interesting.

Overall...never again. Am I glad I tried it? I don't know. Am I glad when I floss my teeth?

A: Darker than I expected for a weiss. A bit amber in appearance I suppose. Two finger head with great retention and good lacing as well.

S: Banana, clove, the typical hefe.

T: I liked the maltiness on this one and it was also quiet unexpected. Just a touch of some caramel like or munich like sweetness comes through. Banana, a bit clove and most predominately a bready like character make themselves into the beer. None of the overdone bubblegum flavors come through and the esters and phenols while nicely present and not out of whack as in some poorer examples.

M: Carbonation is good and refreshing almost spritzy like but I mean that in the best sense, not like a seltzer but retains the refreshing palate scrubbing qualities of one. Body is good as well.

O: A great beer definately recommend and was pleased with the unexpected malt character.
