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.

The aroma is pleasant with lots of clove and bubblegum with some lemon zest. The cloudy body is a surprisingly deep dull amber. The flavor is dominated by succulent banana and clove with a backbone of hop bitterness and alcohol; there is a hint of orange and grapefruit. The body is medium-light but well carbonated, making it somewhat frothy with a prickly bite. There is a little dryness from the alcohol. The subtle malt lingers and leaves a nutty, marshmallow-like aftertaste.

Delicious, not overly sweet. Smooth, spicy, lightly citrusy, and punctuated with some bitterness and alcohol. The absence of pronounced yeasty sourness is welcome. Very refreshing and quaffable.

Awesome brew! Bananas, bubble gum, smooth, easy drinking, low IBU, USDA organic, and one of the best Hefes I've ever tasted!

This is the same beer as this one:

The one in this listing is the American market version and the link above is what it is called in Germany.
