What a great Thanksgiving beer to have,this is a world class weizenbock but I should have guessed it would be from this great brewery.Poured into my Brooklyner Schneider Hopfenweisse glass a hazed orange infused golden with a thick clingy white head atop that lasted quite awhile leaving multiple rings of broken lace behind as it settled. Yeasty bannana,clove,caramel,and some toasted nuttiness in the nose,a good amount of malt complexity going on here.The mouthfeel to me is near perfect,medium with a great creamy mellow feel,its something I could drink all day I think.Flavors of bannana and clove-spice,but its got this subtle component to it,mild caramel sweetness with the alcohol extremely well hidden.This weizenbock I could drink all day,full flavor but immensly drinkable,outstanding without being over the top.

On-tap 11/19/2011 at Julian’s in Providence, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a cloudy gold color, with a short dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains wheat, spices, light caramelized malts, bananas and a touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out bready from wheat and a hearty malt character followed by a strong kick of spices. Then some flavors of bananas and citrus come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and creates a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.
O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid and flavorful beer to drink for a long time.

Pours a nice fluffy white head, hint off-white. Solid golden yellow body with alcohol legs.
The aroma is really nice. Hops are present in addition to the big fruity yeast quality. The strongest scent I get is banana. With a dose of fruity citrus hops. Banana cream dessert, banana bread, faint pepper/clove notes.
Beer starts out with the yeasty fruit flavors and vanilla. The yeast fruit flavors ride out thru the finish and the hops add the mildest bitter touch in the middle. The texture is like velvet and the carbonation helps this beer glide smoothly across the palate. The after-taste is wonderful and will keep you coming back for more.
Take this beer out of the fridge and let it warm for 10 mins and then start drinking. The flavors open up as this beer warms.
*This would go amazing with a fruit/cheese plate.

A: The beer is cloudy yellowish orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that slowly died down and eventually only left a ring of bubbles on the surface around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of wheat and yeast in the nose along with sweet and sour notes of grapes.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and is a bit sour. It also has hints of orange citrus and bananas (from the yeast).
M: It feels a tad below medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink compared to others in the style because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

750ml from Hop City in Atlanta, GA; poured into a tulip
A- Beautiful opaque golden orange, with a thick white head
S- Banana, orange, yeast and clove plus a ton of other spices and fruity tones...smells so complex and delicious I can't help but drink another sip every time I try to smell it. Against my normal reviewing process, but can't help it.
T- Tastes very much like it smells: banana, fruit, spices. Sweet on the finish, reminding me of a red wine or raspberry taste.
M- Nice carbonation, which really helps a beer this dense/chewy in this style.
D- I could drink this all night; as it is warming up it is getting even more complex. Will definitely be buying this again.

I had this beer in my favorite beer tasting ABT pub. ABT stands for Alliance of Beer Tapping bars/pubs. These bars have to have a broad selection of beer bottles and every month a new beer on the tap. This time it was the Schneider Weisse.
The ABT bars claim that the brew master Hans Peter Drexler changed the recipe a little specially for them. Hans Peter didn't change the name of his beer though so I'll review it here.
A - A dark yellow, a white headed and hazy fluid. It looks off style. The foam doesn't linger around very long and there is some carbonation visible.
S - What a strong and complex smell. I never smelled the banana esters so strong in a beer. There are also a lot of other fruits to be discovered in the smell as well.
T - Wow! What a splendid and different taste. A nice soft and fruity beer what hardly no alcohol presence. The taste is full and complex, up front some sweetness and in the after taste rather dry! I am not sure if I am going to give this beer a five.
M - A sweet and soft carbonation and after that it turns into bitter.
O - An excellent Weizenbock! Normally I am not a fan of this beer type, but after tasting this one I am sure I will come back to have another try.

Draft at The Farmers Cabinet.
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color that's completely opaque with a two finger frothy, pillowy white head. Excellent retention slowly fading into a thick lasting cap. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly spicy aroma with hints of bready yeast and citrus fruit. Peppery clove up front with bread, banana and orange peel. Not as aromatic as the regular version. Kind of bland really
Full bodied with an excellent balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, banana notes and sweet citrus. Really nice zesty clove presence up front that lingers throughout but doesn't dominate letting the other flavors shine. Prominent bready yeast flavor adds complexity and fullness to the palate creating a somewhat creamy texture. Lots of citrus sweetness along with banana. Tons of orange and lemon zest which complmnets the clove. Full bodied, flavorful and extremely quaffable. The aroma is kind of weak but this beer packs a ton of flavor.

I had this on-tap at Max's. Pours into a tasting glass.
Appearance: Pours a very cloudy, almost opaque, orangish color with a finger of thick off white head. There is some really great lacing and wonderful retention.
Smell: Tons of banana up front with some malt and mild herbal flavors. Reminds me a bit of banana runts.
Taste: Very sweet with tons of banana, just like the smell. Mild amount of alcohol and a sweet finish. I'm not getting a whole lot from the Nelson hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with extremely smooth carbonation. The finish starts out slick, and then there is a slight dryness as well. This is one of the best feeling beers I've ever have.
Overall: I hardly ever score overall higher than taste, but something drew me to this beer. I liked the beer as a whole better than the taste. It doesn't make sense to me either.

On tap at Max's the other day. Am a big fan of Schneider beers, but this was new to me.
The beer pours a somewhat hazy, tannish gold color with good head retention and considerable sticky lacing all around. The nose on this beer was likewise attractive, though I didn't find it to be anything earth shattering. I got the rather typical (and expected) clove and banana aroma, along with a hint of underlying dry citrus and maybe some rye (?). The flavor profile replicated the nose, with the modest sweetness nicely countered by the spice and light bitterness. As the beer warmed, I got a bit more hoppy bitterness in this beer, though it was never over the top, and never detracted from the prototypical weizen bock flavor profile. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy, something you can pretty much count on from anything made by Schneider. The finish was long and spice filled, with the alcohol perfectly integrated into the flavor profile.
An excellent beer, no doubt, though I'm not really sure the added hops really provide all that much additional flavor. In other words, this would be a pretty excellent weizen bock all on it's own (IMHO). Regardless, this is another very well made beer from the excellent brewers at Schneider.

Had this one at beerloco's place tonight, thanks Alan!
Appearance: Pours a goldfish orange with a minimal white crown that shows moderate retention and lace.
Smell: Decent mix of grapes, gooseberries, floral notes, and a hint of malt sweetness.
Taste: Same as nose but with more citrus prominence.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a semi-dry finish. Decent carbonation too.
Overall: A very nice beer from Schneider that reinforces just how much I like Nelson Sauvin hops.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass very slowly.
A real impressive appearance. Head forms with real creamy sticky retention, with a caramel light yellow color. It looks like whipped up foam. The body in this glass is a myriad of orb glowing colors. From the bottom a perfect lemon yellow to gradual peach orange at the top with everything in between the spectrum. In one word flat out amazing beer. Some typical cola large bubbled carbonation, but not much.
Nose is light floral sense but also the standard banana and cloves sense. Seems a little drier spice action mixed with good lemon and citrus. Mix that in with the floral angle and it is almost potpourri, even fruit punch (a good one).
Taste is a wonderful array of sensations. Front palate starts off with orange citrus then sweet malts and chewy banana, orange again in the swallow with bitter tolerable citrus. Bitter citrus angle on this is very unique. Mouthfeel is classic creamy with a little hint of wet, just enough carbonation to make it interesting.
Overall I love the bouncing between orange and banana, and the play between bitter and sweet on this thing. It goes back and forth and forth. This is one unbelievably good beer.
