This was a perfect beer for me! After aging three years, this was a marvellously smooth, tasty and rounded beer. Some of my favorite beers are from Schneider and this was far surpassed the expectations that I had.

a very interesting idea here, a german wheat lager with nelson hops, has to be great right? well, it is great, but the bottle i shared was dated 2012, and i have to wonder if the one of a kind character of the nelson hops has tailed off a little bit over time. it sure seems that way, not to say the haze beige bronze colored heady beer isnt hoppy, because it is, but that tropical nelson character is pretty minimal, lost in a denser bodied strong wheat base. the bitterness is there, and so is a light lemony fruity element, but i couldnt not place it as nelson, which is concerning to me because i think its the most unmistakable hop varietal out there. love the creamy feel, the snappy finish, and the luxurious nature of the beer. prickly little bubbles lift up the malt, and the hops really do bring it alll together in the finish. its great beer, a new direction for the germans for sure, but i would love to compare this to a fresh bottle and see how it has changed over time. still awesome stuff though, just not the nelson bomb i had anticipated.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Draft at Laschet's in a 10 oz. or so glass.

Opaque orange yellow, fluffy head of white meringue foam that leaves behind lots of delicate lacing to admire, and lasting surface coverage. 4.25

Aroma seems a bit subdued as it was served pretty cold. As it warms there are yeast esters, though it's hard to pull out much signature characteristics of Nelson Sauvin. Smells kind of like a strong hefeweizen, bubblegum and clove yeast esters. 3.5

Taste seems to have a slight oxidation present, papery notes to the wheat, some mild nebulous stonefruit, and a dry finish. Full bodied and fairly big in the abc department. Overall it was a bit of a letdown, not sure the age of the keg, but it didn't really seem hoppy or unique. 3.5/3.75/3.5

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/2/2011. Pours lightly hazy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big apricot, white grape, pear, apple, lemon, banana, pineapple, clove, wheat, honey, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and pale malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big apricot, white grape, pear, apple, lemon, banana, pineapple, wheat, honey, bread, clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, white grape, pear, apple, lemon, banana, pineapple, wheat, honey, bread, clove, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice weizenbock. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
