A- Dull amber/orange-yellow. Cloudy with lees. Moderate foam of coarse, soapy bubbles.

S- A lavish, alluring aroma of big clove phenols & spice, sweet caramel, fragrant soft banana, yeast, honey. Juicy Fruit gum esters, and some golden dried fruit... apricot? (My wife says clove-studded orange & hay.) There is a faint but mysterious note of woodsmoke way in the background. Very, very nice.

T- Leads with rich caramel & butter-toffee decoction mash sweetness. The mid-palate is rich with sweet peaches with honey, huge clove and over ripe banana. The finish is of yeasty bread. Thankfully, the hops are so perfectly complementary that they do not interfere with the ideal harmony of yeast & wheat. The Edel-Weisse is very seductive, and draws you in for more.

M, D- Nectar of the Gods! Eminently drinkable. A delicious pleasure, and one of my favorites among a favorite style. This hefeweizen is so substantial that it is bordering on weizenbock territory. Some beers, when revisited, do not offer the same sense of discovery and excitement as they initially did, but not the Edel-Weisse -- it is always impressive and utterly enjoyable. What a beautiful example of the fine art of brewing.

Murky orange amber with a bit of a glow to it. Reasonable head but not the unbridled monster that some hefes set forth. Sweet fruity aroma, difficult to describe and impossible to resist. Like some sort of flower, but not flowery like many hops are. Velvet smooth with substantial caramel malts and refreshing wheat; bananas, bubble gum, fruit, apples, lemon, cinnamon, cloves all evident. Exquisite, hearty, evocative of fall. Despite its weighty presence, it still can appear light as a feather. Best described as balanced, my friends. This beer could be considered on the heavier end of the hefe spectrum, but so could regular Schneider Weisse. I need to do a side by side comparison to find which is bolder. At any rate this is just about perfect.

(I accompanied this with some take-out Thai/Chinese food and while the beer held up well, it deserves your undivided attention. If you absolutely must going to drink it with food, remember: a world-class beer deserves a world-class meal. Take-out's just not going to cut it.)

This is a great beer. Again my favorite brewery and I am still hooked. This is my first time to try this one. Pours a very cloudy blondish with red highlights color. The head was robust and quickly settles to a tiny island of foam. The nose is classic German Weisse, lemony citrus followed by malt then subtle hops. The taste is excellent, fruity and sweet with some very subtle bite. I think it is the 6.2% ABV that does it. Not an alcoholic taste but a moderate warm glow in the tummy. This is just damned good beer. This is the first time I have found this style from Schneider. Excellent - I would have to rate this as my second favorite from them only after Aventinus.

Pours a hazed gold with a thick, creamy head that settles to a nice thick lace. The chunky yeast may be off putting to some, but I suggest that you give it a good hard pour regardless. Mouth watering aroma of fresh apple cider, tangy and spicy. The combination of American hops with German wheat and yeasts make this one of the most unique beers I have tried. Fruit and spice character is all over the map, with apple, banana, pear, lemon, clove, pepper, and more substantial hop bitterness than your average hefe. Dangerously drinkable, this is a godlike treat for weizen lovers. My all-time favorite.
