look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Purchased at the LCBO 750ml bottle for around $6.50. Served at 8deg C in a water glass. 2012 Edition

A- Pretty good. Opened well, poured with a decent head. Clear, mildly brown

S- Pretty good too. Hints of hops and citrus. Yeasty and fruity.

T- Excellent. This one sat for around one year after purchase. Nice wheat beer

M- Excellent. Very creamy and slick

O- Very good. Glad I have one more to savour this summer

Food Pairing

This nice little wheat paired well with... Spicy tuna sushi! Rolled a couple tonight and this went well!

Enjoy

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Old notes, especially about the taste:

No. 3224; the 2012, had in 2013;
Fruity complexity, ranging from acidic (apple, grape, pear), to citrusy (orange, grapefruit weaker than expected, lime), to ripe (peach, apricot), to tropical (banana, light pineapple);
The sweetness is mild, provided by the fruitiness, and toned down by wheaty malts, lightly toasted bread; the spice is classic, with some nice clove mostly;
Also has a hay-stacky note, followed by herbal and floral goodness from the hops, which don't exactly nuke on the finish (not bad);
Alcohol is hidden nicely, and only tickles, helped by the pleasant carbonation; the resulting aftertaste is mildly bitter, leaving traces of the fruitiness and a wheatiness that lingers for a while;
A perfect weizenbock

Later edit: Just had the 2011 vintage, and the fruitiness is off the charts. Huge orchard fruit and exotic lytchee. The rest are the same. But the hops hugely enhanced the fruity character. This is extremely tasty, a real treat. Just a quick edit of the ratings, setting taste to 5.

4.44/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Color- cloudy gold. Huge, thick head.

Aroma- spicy radish and damp grain.

Taste- An interesting and unique brew. Starts with a slight floral bitterness with a soft traditional hefe weisse mid-body, finishing with a unique, lingering floral yet earthy mineral aftertaste. The floral hops remind me of Deus (from France); a head to head test against Deus would be interesting. Purchased in Dallas from the Korean store Super H Mart. This is a 2012 brew, numbered 16688. The card with the bottle makes some interesting pairing suggestions including "pickled vegetables, Parma ham, pasta, creamy ripe cheese, and fruity desserts." I recommend pairing with knackwurst and sour kraut.

Tasted on 12-30-2013. Poured from 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

4.61/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Label shows 2011 but no drink by date or conclusive born on date.

Slightly hazy peach color with white head.

Subdued banana and clove in the nose. Some berry notes. My guess is from the Nelson Sauvin hops.

Deliciously fruity esters coming through with a banana and lemon kick in the end. Very good mouthfeel and even easier to drink. Doesn't come through like 7.3% at all. As this warms a bit more phenolic notes come out and a bit of sulfur. The malt character is complex with some straw and and oily character from the large amount of wheat.

This is a fantastic beer. I'm not sure it warrants the $17.99 price tag for a big bottle but it was tasty.

4.15/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Fluffy off-white head on top of mostly clear, golden brew. Has a thick, sticky lace.

All the usual suspects (malt, yeast, clove, banana) in the aromatic lineup. A bit of oddball grass and some floral notes are almost overlooked.

Light and fruity with pear, white grape and green apple. Caramel, grain and spice are in the background conspiring. Alcohol only becomes discernible at the very end, even though it's obviously right under your nose.

A very subtle beer with just enough champagne essence to make it light-hearted but with enough beer muscle to keep up the attitude and get the job done before it strides off perfectly into the distance making you reflect on its genius.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. Poured a solid rocky cap of white head, really solid retention. Colour is a musky light brown, slightly golden with a lot of visible carbonation. 4

S – light spicy floral aromas, biscuit malt, apple and soft fruit notes, cherry, orange, fresh herbs, grass/meadow character with an appetizing sweetness. Gets a bit spicy as it warms. Some yeast notes emerge. 4

T – a initial crisp grape character, then tending towards lychee and kiwi, with a slight tartness, like unripe berries or pineapple but sweet enough to be really tasty, a bit more fruity sweetness, pear, slightly bready malts. A mild bitterness on the finish, with more juicy berry notes, some wheat notes with a bit of a subtle creaminess and a very fresh floral and berry character. Finish is toasty, full-bodied and has a lingering grapevine note. 4.5

M – soft and creamy, lots of body and feel to it but super drinkable, no alcohol presence and the wheat creaminess really soothes this out, but a hit of tartness is really refreshing. Quite a lot of carbonation actually, vivacious on the palate. A refreshing beer, with a lingering vineous aftertaste and a bit of dryness. 4

A really delicious beer, the hops provide a full delicious taste ontop of the really solid malt base, not as tropical punch as NS can be, this had more soft kiwi, lychee, pineapple and a slight tart aspect. Balance is perfect and it drinks very well. A tasty and complex beer that drinks much lighter than the abv. Would make an ideal summer beer. I would tone down the carbonation but otherwise enjoyed this, balance is quite good and the tartness works well with the wheat, another winner from this brewery.

750 ml swanky bottle picked up from LCBO for $8.95 CDN. Only viwede at one LCBO so picked up two bottles over the past two weeks.

Appearance - a generous 3 fingers of head is poured revealing a hazy golden brown liquid in the oversized wine glass. The creamy white head has some significant staying power too.

Smell - Dark fruits, toffee and other malted flavours dominate. Some pear and grape scents are also present but barely noticeable.

Taste - Again the dark fruits and malted flavousr are the hero here. Caramel is detectable and there is some bitterness after the sip.

Mouthfeel - Creamy smooth, very easy to forget that this is 7.3%. Quite tasty overall with its medium body and sweet finish. A very dry finish right at the very end contrasts with the rest of the mouthful.

Overall - A very fine beer worth trying a couple of times because well, it was new and I hadn't seen it anywhere. In the future would probably buy other beers before this one, especially since I enjoy the Weihenstepahner Vitus and the Schneider-Weisse Aventinus (Tap 6) to all be in a similar vein. Nonethless a very enjoyable beer.

Been hanging onto this for about year, but today seemed like as good a day as any!
A - clear bright golden, two solid fingers of fluffy white head, plenty of spotty lacing all around
S - yeasty grape phenol aroma, buttery light toast, mild spices, very pleasant and yet mellow aromas
T - light grape medicine phenols, touch of spice, hints of banana and mellon, buttery bread maltiness, the flavours are generally present but very mellow, makes me think the aging has contributed to this
M - light body with lightish carbonation, silky smooth and gentle on the palate, finishes slightly crisp and slightly dry
O - a tasty brew that I suspect has mellowed with nearly 2 years of aging, delicate flavours and super easy sipping, a great treat on a hot summer eve

Bottle #31244

Appearance. Pours a hazy yellow gold with two fingers of frothy white head, decent retention.

Smell. Green apples, clove and fruity Belgian yeast, banana, some light wheaty malt, and faint whiffs of pineapple and lime.

Taste. Fruity Belgian yeast, clove, some banana and earthy hops, just a bit of orchard and tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body, soft medium carbonation.

Overall. Nice stuff, but not as nice as the Vitus I had recently.

750ml champagne style bottle poured into my seldom used matching tall Schneider Weisse glass 31/5/13 2012 bottle # 32095

A cloudy dark golden orange liquid with bubbles popping up from everywhere, not surprising that there's a massive long lasting cream colored foam that's stills a half inch deep at the bottom of the glass, a thick collar of lace followed by plenty of random patches

S candied pineapple, green banana, guava juice, floral hops, faint brown sugar and some wheaty dry cereal

T faint bubble gum on top of what I smell with more cereals and slightly more fruit, mimics the smell fairly well, I was expecting more Nelson Sauvin, If it wasn't in the name itself I doubt I would've guessed

M not as many bubbles as I would've guessed after looking at the bubbles in the glass, has some weight to it, and more tropical notes on the finish that anywhere else with some lemon rind and the fruit I could smell

O pretty solid Weizenbock that I wish was freshly bottle unlike most brews of the style, I'd like the Kiwi hops to play a bigger part but perhaps that's just the hop overkill love that I have going on, it is fairly hoppy after all

I'm not sure what I expected but I was pretty happy with what I ended up with, well worth a try even if its not your favorite style

750ml Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $10 - 2011 edition

Appearance - Slightly hazy amber colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there isn't much lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Hops, corn, ginger, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, apples, and bread/grains. There are also some green grapes and a touch of ripe banana. It ends with a ripe fruit aftertaste.

Overall – Not sure if this beer is a little past it's prime, but it's still very good. Not something that stands out to me as something I need to buy again though. Happy to have tried.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml Prosecco-style bottle. Limited edition 2012.

This beer pours a hazy, glassy medium golden amber hue, with two fingers of dense, puffy dirty white head, which leaves a random array of droopy raincloud lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away, much like my thumb earlier this afternoon.

It smells of fruity wheat malt - banana, a little bit of applesauce - spicy clove and black pepper, earthy yeast, soft tropical fruit notes, redolent of sassy white wine must, and a further floral, somewhat perfumed booziness. The taste is much sweeter wheat malt, the banana pudding character rising to a heady crescendo, with a receding yeastiness, steady clove and peppery spiciness, mild late harvest white wine notes, and more leafy, floral alcohol.

The bubbles are fairly frothy, but innocuous at the same, the body just on the lee side of medium weight, and quite fruity in its smoothness bearing. It finishes well off-dry, the thick wheat malt dancing a timely waltz with fadingly attractive foreign fruity hops, with the booze, as per usual, the social lubricant.

A rather good weizenbock, my only real beef here is with the sort of indistinct nature of the heralded guest hops - they're there, sure, but not in any measure that I might not have mistaken them for a touch of plain ol' Cascade. The wine character just doesn't permeate, leaving me with a kind of opportunity loss cost feeling. Good, but not as good as I was hoping - perhaps that's the German reservedness asserting itself here.

I'm a huge Schneider Weisse fan and have been on the hunt for this one (only brewed once in 2011) for some time. Picked up 4 bottles when I found it and wasn't disappointed. Poured from a 750ml into a Weizen glass.

A: Beautifully shaped sexy bottle. Pours a lovely illuminated gold with about 4 fingers of expressive head. Relatively clear with no yeast tornado at the end of the pour.

N: As expected mostly yeast and bananas with the slightest suggestion of wine / grape aromas.

T: Lovely, balanced flavor with the Nelson Sauvin hops imparting a chardonnay like roundness and tart sweetness which is very mellow on the mouth. I have had TAP 5 Mein Hopfenweizen many times at the SW brewery and I was somehow expecting the single hopped profile on this TAP X to be aggressive like TAP 5. It's not, it is very sophisticated and soft. Flavors have nice floral angles and fruitiness, green apple and peach mixed in with the white wine vinous notes.

MF: Relatively full bodied with well engineered Bavarian carbonation. Expressiveness helps the various subtle flavors emerge on the sides of your tongue. Refreshing.

O: A nice beer and always good to bad a rarity. I really think this beer has probably mellowed significantly in the the nearly 2 years since it was bottled (day 214 of 2011). I would love to lay a bottle of this down for 5 more years to see how it evolves. I just might , if I can muster the willpower.

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

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy medium golden amber with a fine three finger white head with great retention that leaves pillowy lacing. Classic weizen aroma of sweet wheat, bananas anc cloves, no evidence of the Nelson hopping. Flavor follows aroma, with sweet wheat, light banana and clove. Interesting light sweet fruit flavor, which I assume is from the the hops, vaguely reminiscent of a sweet white wine, although I would not have identified it as such if I had not read the bottle label. Finishes moderately dry with light fruity hops. Light bodied, but nice mouth feel from carbonation. A nice variant on a well made weizenbock. Flavors were well integrated, a bit subdued. Another great beer from this very consistantly good brewery.

Golden orange color with lots of thick head with good retention. Got darker and hazy on the last pours.
Aroma of yeast with banana notes and some booze.
Taste of wheat malt, oranges, bananas and cloves. Dry aftertaste with good hints of white wine, this is the main differentiator in this Weizenbock. The white wine feel gets stronger as it warms up.
Medium to full body with medium carbonation. Although present in the aroma, alcohol is practically unperceived in the taste.
Flavorful and refreshing, it kind of grew on me. Really liked the almost rare German innovative instance to use New Zealand white wine twisted hops.
This may be a good spell for bringing wine drinkers to the world of beers, from the bottle style to its taste. Actually, a friend that is into wine that gave me this, probably from a wine importer or store.
I hope Schneider Weisse change this to a year round edition.

I think this is a fantastic beer. Pours a hazy golden, with the haze providing a bit of a glow. White head is foamy, creamy and thick. Nice lacing.

Banana and clove are present in the nose, but not dominant like a regular hefe. That's fine with me. Instead there is a faint peach and tartness. Some soft citrus and an overall dryness.

Flavor follows the nose, although here the peach makes more of a presence. Maybe it's a combination with mango? Toward the end the clove and banana make a move toward the tongue but the carbonation lifts it all away.

Really nice beer.

I picked this up at Brass Rail enjoyed chilled from the 750 into a tulip.

The color is deep golden amber like honey with very light haze and thick 3 finger cap of cream with average sized bead, lace sticks ok. The smell is very floral and fragrant with yeast aroma and a caramel tinged malt w/ vinous -white grape aroma and subtle citrus zest aspect. The feel is great with mostly dry feel and moderate bitterness apropos to the increased abv w/ sligh spice tinged body with medium high carbonation as expected from a wheat.

The flavor is great as the mouthfeel with subtle floral hop entry andn caramel as indicated from the malt in the nose with subtle tropical taste from the yeast and Nelson hops with slight white grape tanginess and mild alcohol backing the mix of spice in the yeast and gentle banana with a goody amount of hop flavor considering the age of this bottle. Overall I was highly impressed a very good Weizenbock which I think fits the style well withh a nice taste from the Nelson Sauvin hop varietal - a pretty enjoyable beer and well worth the price in my opinion.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. 2011 vintage. Poured into a snifter. White head on a hazy light orange body. Clear and soapy lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma includes sweet bananas, a delicious yeastiness, and maybe some caramel and some clove and white pepper. Taste follows suit with banana dominating. Drank it fresh and now a year old. More earthy and slightly sweeter today but I would say this would be interesting to evaluate as it gets even older. Delicious. Period.

From: Binny's, Champaign, IL
Date: Bottled day 213 of 2011
Glass: tulip

For the price, non-amazing aroma and flavor, and difficulty consuming a 750ml of this on my own, I would probably avoid purchasing another of these in the future, and stick with Aventinus instead.

Pours a 2cm head of fairly clean, white foam that's composed of small to medium-sized bubbles. Retention is average, with only modest amounts of lacing being left on the sides of the glass. Body is a dark golden color out of light, a hazy yellow-orange when in light. Body is opaque from suspended yeast, with carbonation slightly visible at the bottom of the glass.

Aroma is a fairly heavy, syrupy wheat beer with honey, yeast, and slight bitter hops. Not unpleasant, but not amazing nor particularly expressive.

Tasting opens with bright sweetness accompanied by mild lemon-like esters, leading into a mid-palate that has slight lemon, honeyed herbs, weizen yeast, and sweetness. Back of palate is bitter, with lemon, honey, and yeast components as well. Surprisingly, no hint of ethanol throughout.

Beer is medium bodied, with mid-level carbonation leading to a mouthfeel that foams up slightly across the palate, but is still quite enjoyable. Closes dry, with modest residual stickiness across the palate.

Appearance – Pours an opaque dark gold orange color , with a thick creamy head that slowly fades to a thin layer that stays with the beer, and a medium lacing that slowly drips back into the beer.

Smell – Now this is what a weizenbock should smell like. Honey, lemon hops, clove, a hefeweizen style wheat, and just a slight hint of bubblegum.

Taste – Taste is very similar to the smell, a delicious weizenbock!

Mouthfeel – Very smooth and lightly carbonated. I don’t notice the alcohol at all. Amazing for a 7.3% beer.

Drinkability – Schneider makes great hefeweizens and weizenbocks. This is another.

Taste & Mouthfeel: more full bodied than expected, but still a medium; great medley of astringent fruitiness to start - orange, white grapes, currants - along with some fresh herbal notes; finishes lightly tart and lingers along with wheat malt for a good length

Overall: very good for a weisse with a fantastic nose, but gets tiring as the style usually does for me
