Finally I get around to a Schneider Weisse beer. I have been threatening to review one of their brews ever since I reviewed the mighty Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier years ago (and that threat was actually to review the Tap 6 Unser Aventinus which I tried in my craft beer infancy and have had no luck getting since). It has been a long road to get my hands on a Schneider Weisse - they really should think more about getting in to the Australian market [purely for my sake of course]. Anyway I have "my green" and now I'm going to enjoy it.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Weizen glass.

A: Hazy with a gold and amber body and a firm 2cm cream head. Plenty of bubble action going on in the glass with some interesting patterns forming of their own accord.

S: Spicy clove phenols upfront on the nose and rather a bit of a nice dominating aroma for this Weizen. Hints of banana bread and herbaceous hops also give some body to the fragrance but it's the clove phenols that really stand out.

T: In a word: Fantastic! There is quite a lot more going on with the flavour profile of this Weizen - spice from cloves, pepper and cardamom mix in with lemon citrus, herbaceous hops, bitter orange and a hint of banana which lingers in the background.

M: Not so fantastic, certainly not as good as the Weihenstephaner Hefe in this respect - medium bodied with excitable carbonation, it's missing the "creamy" feel of a great Weizen.

D: Well this is a Weizen that takes no prisoners. It has some characteristics that really make it stand apart from Weihenstephaner's classic Hefe and in fact that is one of the reasons I rate this brew so highly - it has something Weihenstephaner doesn't have: bold spices and lemon/orange action going on. If that is something that you look for in a Weizen then look no further than Mein Grünes, a superlative brew, prost!

Food match: Roast and cured meats are a winner with this exciting ale, along with any other bold spicy flavoured foods you can get your hands on.

Foam spills from the bottle upon opening. Pours a hazy orange with a substantial white head. The aroma and taste are both bready with clove and banana. Very refreshing. Medium mouth with little aftertaste. Very well done, and on par with their other beers.

Pours beautifully with a good lacey head that lasts for most of the drink. Lovely golden color and a nice aroma but overly hoppy in flavour for my palate and a little too much on the bitter side too. Still a very decent drink though, but far from being a favourite.
