ST: 1 pint 9oz poured into a weizen glass. Bottle does not list ABV or DBD.

A: Cloudy dark orange with strong carbonation, the beer has a large whole finger white head that looks thick like sea foam. It has great retention (over a minute.

S: Clove, banana, lemon, bread, and spice.

T: Lemon, bread, slight spice, some banana on the finish.

M: Medium and dry.

O: A pleasant weiss. It has some nice even flavor, a hint of spice, and is not overly sweet. The lemon citrus does help it achieve a refreshing flavor. However, it could be a bit lighter, could have more carbonation zing, and the flavor could be a bit more intense (particularly the spice on the finish). It also would be nice if it was a bit creamier.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of June 2012. The original Schneider-Weisse.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A rich golden-amber colour with plentiful carbonation; darkens significantly as the last part of the bottle is agitated and poured. The final colour is a hazy dark brown - the biggest change I've ever seen when pouring a beer. Produces a large creamy off-white head with excellent stability - it looks great and reminds me of the head on Guinness. Aroma of wheat and fruity yeast esters, with dominant notes of banana and cloves. A slightly sulphurous hint in the background, and perhaps a whiff of alcohol.

Tastes of sweet wheat malt with a fruity yeast character and a dry finish. Dominant notes of banana, followed by cloves, bubblegum, yeast esters and spice. Subtle stewed hops hit the back of the throat, along with a hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, but seems a little flat. Quite astringent; coats the palate. Aftertaste of bananas and sweet, fruity yeast.

Nice - a solid weissbier. Lots of fruity yeast and wheat flavours swilling around. Smooth, balanced and refreshing. Would go down well on a hot day. Well worth your time.

This beer poured darker than many other weisse beers. It was a medium orange-brown and cloudy with an initial 2 finger head that quickly disappeared to just a ring. Initial smells included banana, cloves and bread but the banana faded as the beer warmed. Decent flavor that reflects the bread and clove aroma. Decent carbonation and nice balanced feel. Not the best beer of this type but would definitely come back to it.
