Schneider Weisse Original has a very thick, light beige head and an initially clear, amber appearance, which clouds up once the bottom bit is swished and poured in. Then, little gray chucks float about. This beer is very bubbly, like Champagne. There is a small bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of clean water, grain husks, and some sweetness. Taste is of white wheat bread, sourness, sweetness, a touch of mild hop bitterness, yeast, and a ghost of coriander. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Schneider Weisse finishes dry and quite refreshing. Overall, this is a very good beer.

The beer appears autumnal orange with a thick , lasting, light tan head. An odd color for a hefeweizen, but still a good appearance. Moving on...The aroma offers bananas, clove, malt, booze...slightly sweet. The flavor is smooth and balanced, with banana character gaining strength in the finish. Additional flavors aside from the norm include a pronounced malt flavor with some candy sweetness. Less bold than some of my favorite examples of the style. That said, this beer has some character and pizzaz. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, this is solid, but I would never choose it over Weihenstephaner.

Schneider Weisse The Original. Poured into the classic Schneider Weisse Hefe glass. The underside of the bottlecap and the inside of the mouth of the bottle shows a thick layer of yeast gunk from the bottle conditioning, however when I poured it, I got some great clarity in a coppery-colored brew. The head was tame from the start and never got above two fingers. It has since fallen to a thin cap. 3.0

The nose is rich with toasted malt grains, clove, bubblegum, and light banana. Not the typical fruity/yeast smell. The grains almost have a Marzen-like toast to them. Not much spiciness, and no detectable off-aromas. 4.0

Some metallic flavors possibly arising from well-toasted grains comes off almost copper-tasting. A little bit on the musty side for a hefe, but still yielding clove as the front-runner ester. Very slight bubblegum and banana in the finish, but not much. The finish is semi-dry with some hop bitterness. 4.0

Feels a little overcarbonated. Quite the burpy hefe. The body is match-medium and there's a slight fusel finish to the beer. More prickly due to hop bitterness than yeast spiciness, which makes it different, but still enjoyable. 3.5

First time having this one and I have to say that I'm glad I've tried it, but I won't be seeking it out. I do, however, regret not picking up the Edel-Weisse (Tap 4) while I was at the store today and giving that a whirl. In due time, I suppose. This is a tasty hefe ideal on a weekday afternoon. Worth a try. 4.0

O: Love German beers and this style, but
was slightly disappointed at this offering.
Would have again, but not seek out.
Fine gateway Hefe or German brew for newbie
and good summer alternative for BMC fans.

I'm not going to get into all the details of beer advising. I'm only going to say that this beer makes me thing of the modern traditional German song, ""Im Himmel gibt's kein Bier" (i.e., "In Heaven, There is No Beer".) There is no better Weissbeer, period. I'd drink more of it, but it's hard to justify paying 3.5 USD for a 1/2 L when unemployed, even when it's this good.

Extreme head on first pour, but the head dissipates quickly to nothing! Color is golden, with an amber tint. No haze… should have inverted the bottle. Nice nose of bananas, bubble gum, and some yeasty funk. Smells very tart. Doesn't pull me in quite like the Weihenstephaner.

Taste comes off a bit stale. High carbonation stays very prickly the mouth. Finishes dry and a little yeasty. No sweetness at all, and ester flavors don't show up that much in the flavor. Got all the yeast in the last pour (500ml into 12oz glass) and the bubble gum shows up more.

Overall: B+, leaves me 'eh'

A German guy turned me on to this and now it's one of my favorites....hard to find it on tap in the US...bottles are at bevmo.

It's an unfiltered wheat so the appearance will be cloudy and a rich brown w slight orangey color. A very rich full head that will snow cone if you poor it right. Always a little water in the glass to activate the yeast.

The distinct nutmeg really comes out which I've only seen attempted duplication by ale works which can't be compared.

Overall a very fine weisse beer. Best weisse I've had. Can't drink the American ones like widmer anymore...

Poured into a Weizenglass, the color of the beer is a very cloudy orange, brown gold. The white creamy builds a beautiful three fingers high. Good retention for a Weizenbeer and good lacing.
The smell is fruity and hints bubble gum, but is not strong.
Tasting the beer the bubble gum will be up front, but is quickly checked by clove and fruit flavors. In the middle a slight sour zest taste is dominant. At the end the yeast binds all the flavors to a nice finish.
A very drinkable everyday Hefeweizen. Great job!
