Bottled on the 160th day of the year. I'm surprised I haven't reviewed it. I'm also surprised by how dark this beer is, it's almost dunkelweizen-like. Deep mahogany-amber with a dense off-white head with solid retention and no real lacing, this is a very appealing beer. Dark for the style, but still solid.The nose is excellent. Bright, refreshing with a blend of clove and banana (leaning heavily on the clove), there's a dense, bready aroma with a nice yeasty aroma. A little caramel is present. A touch of dusty, earthy hops are also present.

The palate opens with a blend of clove, banana and a surprising refreshing tartness that's mildly lemon-like. Now, the tartness has a wheaty, husky, grainy component as well, so this definitely isn't an infection. A mild, bready sweetness is present on the mid-palate. Earthy hops with a firming bitterness are present on the finish, along with a lingering clove and some banana flavor. Light in body and highly carbonated, this feels just a touch watery, and that aspect is disappointing. Solid stuff, though I think I like the Edel-weisse a little bit more.

A- Hazy caramel brown with a thick off white head. Head fades quickly to a ring and leaves a little spotty lace on the glass.

S- Banana, clove, spice, caramel malt and wheat.

T- Banana and clove right away with a nice amount of wheat to balance things out. Hints of nutmeg in the middle and a touch of lemon zest at the finish.. The finish is dry, crisp and clean with a lingering note of clove and spices.

M- Medium in body and well carbonated, very lively on the palate.

O- Nice refreshing Hefe, not what I was expecting from the looks of it. It’s a lot darker than what I’m used to in a Hefe. Taste is more complex than most and the 5.4% ABV make it an easy drinker.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle Date of 10.251, probably a full year after that FWIW

A: Semi-cloudy golden brown pour with a big white head. Retention is great, not a lot of lacing.

S: No notice of oxidation, thankfully. Light and fruity. It smells a lot like the Aventinus. Pretty dark for a hefe.

T: The taste is holding up quite well. Deep like a bock, yet light like a hefe. Clove, dark fruits, candied sugar. Well balanced and very drinkable.

MF: Very light and a medium to low amount of carbonation.

O: I was ready for this to have turned for the worse, but it was quite good! Kudos to you Schneider.

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

appearance: golden brown to almost amber colored. darker than the average hefe. inch-high head with little lacing

aroma: distinctly wheat-y with strong scent of apple. certainly some banana and clove in there too

palate: taste is similar to aroma, no surprises nothing that comes out. a little too carbonated for my preference, but aside from that a balanced flavor; apples, banana, lemon(?), cloves
