look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into Wheat beer glass out of a 500ml bottle.

Appearance - Nice cloudy amber, didn't get a good head on this was white in color and I never got it to come back so no lacing here.

Smell - Nice clove and yeast with a little banana basic hefe but very pleasing.

Taste - All that spicy clove and yeast all the down, banana isn't in the taste as one would come to expect with a hefe but still good. Spicy after taste I think this has a lot more clove than the original.

Mouthfeel - Classic smooth hefe here with though it is a little drier than the others I'd chalk that up to the higher abv on it. Medium bodied with that alcohol coming out only a bit after its warmer.

Overall - Another great brew by Schneider I'd love to grab more. Only down side was the lack of head that most hefe give a nice two to 4 finger but hey I'll take it. That said go grab one and see for yourself.

A- Cloudy with a touch of orange. Thick creamy head.

S- In your face with clove spicyness and zesty citrus fruit.

T&M- Grainy, yet super smooth, malt in a medium bodied, full carbonated package. Very spicy. Malt is sweet but toned down, very bready in character. Lemon zest kicks in quickly to even out those spices. Hops are missing but no need as this comes out very balanced. Complex and raw.

D- Very different than other german Hefe's. Excellent brew with a wild side. Very enjoyable.

This brew pours a two toned color with a cloudy light mud like color up top with a pale straw hue at the bottom. There are all sorts of chunky yeast blobs floating throughout this brew, and a firm white head makes this brew look quite appealing. Aromas consist of a mix of banana and clove along with a raw unmalted wheat like note. There is also a slight citrus presence as well. Initial flavors are quite citrusy and fruity with a good dosage of both clove and banana. There is a nice sweet backing of wheat throughout this brew along with a nice creamy body. The finish is sharp and spicy with a nice citrus flavor in the end. Overall this is a nice hefeweizen that probably appeals to those who love to go organic..

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Hazy, significantly yeasty amber with the suggestion of orange when backlit. The bone white head is tight-bubbled with an almost featureless surface. My prediction is perseverance and a clean glass (which turned out to be true). I can read foam like a gypsy reads tea leaves.

Clove, clove and more clove. If anyone doubts that hefe weizen yeast imparts spicy, clove-like esters to beer, or doesn't know what clove smells like, have them smell this one. There's nothing else about the relatively low-wattage nose, banana for instance, that makes me think hefe weizen.

As often happens, the flavor is better than the nose. The beer is still significantly clove spicy and banana has now entered the picture. I think I'll start rating my hefe weizens on something I'll call a banan-o-meter. This one gets a 3.5/5.0, maybe even a 4.0. Damn, I waffle as much on my newly invented banan-o-meter as I do on the appearance, smell, taste, etc.

More malt would have been nice since the beer isn't quite as full or as sweet as I prefer. Interestingly, I couldn't pick up any Cascade hoppiness. What's that you say? Cascade? Dedicated label readers will discover that good ol' American citric hops are added to the kettle. As much as I love Cascade, I'm not sure that using them in a hefe weizen is such a great idea. It doesn't really matter, though, since I can't taste them anyway.

The mouthfeel is on the lighter end of the style spectrum and is zippily carbonated. That's okay since those characteristics contribute to a high degree of drinkability. Just because I prefer something else doesn't mean I can't appreciate this mouthfeel for what it is.

Wiesen Edel-Weisse is a good, light-bodied, clove-intensive hefe weizen that is wonderfully quenching and could be consumed in quantity if one was so inclined. I have a feeling that after a hot, sweaty afternoon of trudging along behind the lawn mower, popping the cap on one of these would be a tremendously rewarding experience.

500ml bottle from the LCBO. Part of the 2010 Spring Beer Release. Glowing and cloudy amber orange, dark golden hues, two fingers of beige head, and patches of lacing on the weizen glass. Some brownish yeast sediment lingers on top of the foam. Smell and taste are clove, lemon, citrus, yeast, banana bread, spice, and wheat malt in the finish. Very subtle aromas of cantaloupe and vanilla on the nose. Mouthfeel is delicate, soft, sharp and refreshing C hop bite, dryly malted wheat/clove aftertaste. A welcomed twist on a weissbier. Drinks too easy for 6.2% ABV. Thank God this finally made it to Ontario!

Pfft, and a capful of gray co2 smoke.
Coudy, orangish haze. Head forms quick and fades quick, leaving just a trm of lace around half the glass.
Tastes sharp from wheat and just a little too much carbonation. You don't see a lot of CO2 precipitating out as bubbles, but you take a sip and you get a wallop of gas. There's a fruity-yeasty taste here, kind of like Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat, except this is orange-ish (not Fruit Loops).
Mouthfeel - A bit high on the carbonation, but otherwise fine.
Drinkability - I couldn't imagine drinking more than one, unless I let it breathe for a bit. There is just too much carbonation bite.
Of note: this is 'original bottle fermentation' meaning homebrewers could probably recover the brewer's yeast for their own batch (although it's not clear if the yeast is the 'original' or just added for conditioning...)

500 ml bottle from Roth’s Sunnyside Market, Salem. $2.49..on clearance. Says ’Organic" on the label, which is different from the one shown here. Aroma very nice , bananas, cherries ,yeast, wheat, bubblegum it is all here. Its slightly hazy orange in appearance with a huge rocky white head Taste mimics the aroma ,but is well under control and balanced. Good palate to the beer..not to thin but well drinkable. Overall a good beer that has stood up well to being out of date ( for a weiss) and stored horribly in a clearance cart.

The beer is foggy brass colored, a high white rather firm head, settles slowly leaving some lacing.

The smell is full of oranges and spices, lemon, bitter oranges, clove and cardamom.

Starting sweet, wheat bread, cinnamon buns, orange and lemon jam, lots of spices, clove and ginger.

Medium high carbonation, very small, foamy bubbles, a good body, slightly sticky but soft texture, a light dry finish.

A- cloudy burnt golden body with well defined floating particles. foam is big and expansive and settles to a thick disk without much lace.

S- fruity and phenolic, with alcohol aromas complementing the yeast. fruitiness is akin to a BSPA or a tripel. pear, apple, banana, clove, plum, grape, sweet cookie malt underlies the yeast. very fragrant and nice.

T- tart fruity and sweet, again very much like a weakened tripel. apple. pear, grape, melon, plum, banana, some caramel, sugar cookie, and an earthy dryness with just the tiniest hint of cocoa butter. alcohol flavor is evident especially on a burp.

MF- thinner and not as soft as i would expect from a world class hefe. aggressive prickly carbonation and a slight alcohol dryness.

D- not bad but not outstanding, i would recommend other widely available examples (ayinger, franziskaner) over this one.

Pours a verging-on-pale gold until the yeast spills in, then takes a copper tone, the head is whopping and bubbly, then foamy, then recedes to a thin foam. Not bad. The aroma has clove, banana, citrusy, an earthy hop, some bubblegum, quite nice, but not floored.

The taste is classic hefe, with a twist. The marriage of a hefe with cascade hops seemed something I'd see only with the Brooklyn/Schneider hoppy hefe, but here it is again, banana, clove, bubblegum, and also a ripe, citrusy hop profile, not too powerful, just enough to perk major interest. And, it tastes good too. The mouth is a bit weird, copious amounts of carbonation to begin with, then takes a dive within minutes, leaving the medium body feeling even lighter. A finishing fine carbonation saves the day though as a spicy wheat finally decides to show up. In all, not too bad, rather interesting for sure.

Bottled 11/8/11.

Pours a murky light orange-yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, spices, and slight banana. Taste is much the same with an aftertaste of grain and banana. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Pours a very hazy golden amber with a dense creamy slightly off-white head. Classic hefe aromas of clove, spice, and hints of citrus and banana. Clove, banana and spice follow in the taste, and are met with a nice zip from the hops. Lemon/citrus, grassy, and leaving a noticeable bitterness in the aftertaste which is a nice change to the usual hefe. Nice medium to light body, slightly aggressive carbonation. A fun hefe-- lots of the traditional flavours you look for with a bit of elevated hoppiness.

A- Cloudy golden tan topped with an off white head. The head fades quickly to a ring and leaves a little spotty lace on the glass.

S- Hints of banana, clove, citrus, and spice.

T- Slightly bitter character right away, but not from hops, hints of clove and banana balance things out. Slight medicinal quality at the middle and the finish is a wash of dry citrus notes and a biscuit aftertaste.

M- Medium in body and ample carbonation. Finish is clean and dry.

O- Decent beer, not my favorite Hefe but not at the bottom of my list either. The 6.2% ABV shows up a little as this warms but it doesn’t detract from the taste.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle Inspection: 500 ml brown bottle, 6.2% abv., USDA Organic seal, ingredients (Water, Organic wheat malt, Organic barley malt, organic Cascade hops, organic Hallertauer hops, yeast), original bottle fermentation, and an indecipherable date code on the back. Cap has a brown reside/rust under it.

Aroma: Earthy wet grain/wheat base, light bubble gum, hints of clove.

Appearance: Bright clear yellow that goes hazy as my glass widens at the hop. Very active carbonation fails to hold a head (at times a very thin collar). A careful pour leaves behind dark sediment.

Flavor: Soft wheat, mild sweetness, a bit of the bubblegum which gives this a nice character. There is also a light grassy hop deep in the taste but no real bitter to speak of. The tastes are well blended and complete.

Mouthfeel: Given all the carbonation streams, I’m surprised by the low carbonation feel. Surprisingly smooth texture given all the wheat.

Overall Impression: I’m surprised I like this as much as I do! I have an organic bias (negative) but this doesn’t have any of the “organic” tastes I’m use to. This is just a nice Weizen, I’d say Krystal Weizen more than Hefe, but that might be due to a longish cellar in my fridge to let the yeast settle out. Probably one of the best organic beers I’ve had.
Recommended!

This 100% organic hefeweizen pours a dark yellow to orange color. Its hazy and it looks thick since its unfiltered. The head is big and fluffy white. It sticks around for quite awhile before slowly but surely sinking back into the beer.

Smell is sweet fruit, cinnamon, cloves, a bit of holiday potpourri and some nice yeastiness. Quite a pleasant smelling beer. Another one I'd like to make into an air freshener.

Tastes spicy and sweet. A couple sips and I can make it some green apples, cloves and some wheat. I was surprised that this beer was brewed with cascade hops since I really don't taste any of the citrus that they usually provide. Its definitely not a big, juicy fruity beer like Aventinus. Instead its a little more thin in mouthfeel and very easy drinking. This is pretty much perfect on a warm/hot day. Its very thirst quenching and refreshing.

Had a bottle tonight at Porter Cafe in WR. Served in a Schneider Wiesen stemmed glass. Light orange in color. Slight thin white head. The glass just made the beer look damn good. Smell was of bananas and clove. Taste was really nice, with loads of spice and bubble gum flavors. The only knock I have against this beer would be the mouthfeel. While its not watery, I would have loved to have seen a bit more malt to lend some extra body to the beer. Also, the abv is a bit high for a hefe, but who is complaining? A great tasting beer from a brewery that never lets me down.

Pours a hazy straw color with 4 fingers of dense white head. A little hint of lacing & no head retention

S: Yeasy phenolic scent & a little bubble gum, & fruiityness as it warms

T: Peppry sice, coriander, lemon & fruittyness up front. Phenolic yeast taste fills in the edges, along with some white bread taste. Tart wheat flavors follow. Finishes fruitty & quenching

MF: Medium bodied & low carbonation

Once you get back past some phenolics this is very drinkable. A pretty nice hefe

A dirty copper brown body with explosive head is noted during pour. There's little lacing, but retention is relatively fine.

The smell is delicious, with heavy citrus and wheat coming through strong. Sweet, yeasty spice adds to the appetising aroma.

Bananna and clove are most recognisable amongst the assortment of spice and light fruit, with notable yeast and hops too.

The carbonation is moderate to high, and suits this sweet, light-tasting beer beautifully.

It was an all-round delight. One that can be had all night, while savouring every mouthfull.

A - Just what a hefeweizen should look like. Cloudy, golden with good effervescence.

S - I can't help but be a little disappointed with the smell. I expected some clove and bannana to appear. The smell was very fresh with wheat bread and yeast.

T - Some bannana shows up when it counts. Just really fresh tasting. The wheat grassy notes stand out. The hops are nice and balanced.

M - Bubbly and easy to swallow.

D - This was a great beer. I am amazed at the fresh taste out of a bottle shipped from Germany. I would love to try this on draft. I would enjoy more spiciness in this beer but I am not going to complain.

From: Beertopia, Omaha, NE
Date: "13.098 191212"
Glass: Weihenstephan weizen glass

A sweet (light caramel, toasted bread), phenolic and yeast-forward hefeweizen that is enjoyable and well-made, but one must not be seeking the banana esters found in other versions of the style, else court disappointment. Good, one I'd seek out again if desiring this flavor combination.

Pours a 2cm tall head of off-white foam, comprised of small and medium-sized bubbles, resulting in a slightly frothy to soapy appearance. Retention is good, the foam lasting about 1.5 minutes before fading to a thin (0.2cm) cap atop the body of the beer. Lacing is modest, with a small scattering of lines and dots clinging to the walls of the glass. Body is dirty orange-brown, with light bringing out golden brown hues. Carbonation visible through the nearly opaque (95% opacity) body, medium-high in number and activity.

Aroma of hearty yeast, spicy phenols, toasted grain and light caramel sweetness, light banana ester.

Overall flavor is of malt sweetness with spicy phenols, yeast, and a modest background of light caramel and lightly toasted bread. Front of palate tastes light caramel sweetness, lightly toasted bread, sharp and spicy phenols, and a bit of yeast. Mid-palate of spicy phenols, toasted grain and bread, light caramel sweetness, lemon citrus, and minimal banana ester. Back of palate experiences spicy phenols, yeast, with a background of toasted bread and light caramel sweetness. Aftertaste of lingering spicy phenols and slight bitterness with toasted grain and bread in the background.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a softly foamy (1/2) and otherwise smooth (1/2) mouthfeel that compements the beer well and is within guidelines for the style; still could have a bit more carbonation and benefit from it. Closes semi-dry, with light stickiness clinging to the palate.

Bottle purchased from Beertopia in Omaha, NE.
No clear bottled on date.
Poured into a Weihenstephaner weizen glass.

Pours a fairly large, thick head composed of small and medium-sized bubbles, creating a creamy looking effect. Carbonation appears to be fairly aggressive, though somewhat masked by the opaque character that's due to the unfiltered preparation of the beer. Body color is darkly burnt orange or brown when away from light, quite dark compared to most others I've had in the style, and a watery brown when held up to a light source. As the head descends over the course of a few minutes, reaching a ring around the glass with some islands, it leaves just a bit of lacing along the sides of the glass.

The aroma is dominated by the malt and grain base/character. The beer from this bottle seriously smells like a whole grain breakfast cereal. Some detectable quantities of clove/coriander and slight banana. I seem to be missing several components others are claiming.

Taste is similar to smell, with being very close to Crispix. There's a slight sharpness from what I'd think to be phenols (clove), but most else is drowned out by the grain. While I find this pleasant, it's not what I was expecting at all.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation level high enough that this moves pleasantly along on the palate while sampling. Finish is pleasantly semi-dry, inviting the next sip.

While I enjoyed drinking this, I'm not sure that it's a "top 5 wheat beer," as the heavy cereal flavor is definitely quite different from traditional hefeweizens. Regarding the other components of this beer that I'm missing, maybe I bought an old bottle. Something to try again at a later date and see if my thoughts change.

Mid sized bottle, has some numbers on the rear label, but not sure what they all mean. Pours cloudy darker apricot, with a slight olive oil like hue. Moderate off white head, and leaves quickly sliding spots and tongues of fine lace. Fruity, wheaty, yeasty nose. Fruity and flavorful. Some honey, very light pepper, ripe fruit. Typical German wheat flavor notes, typically yummy and delicious. Organic to boot. Nice wheat. Go get some and enjoy.

Had a 500ml bottle for $8 at Tap and Table in Emmaus, PA. The waitress gave it the proper, bottle-down-in-the-glass pour and it appeared a hazy amber with a tall white head. In both aroma and taste, this beer started very strong with phenolic bubblegum and then had notes of clove, pepper, and lemon around it. All around very smooth and drinkable, you just need to like bubblegum. Glad I tried it, and it's very well made, but I prefer less bubblegum.

500ml bottle from a recent LCBO batch, pours a murky banana/apple juice color, almost looks like silt sliding around in there. A couple fingers of pillowy head which has some good retention.

Nose is bursting with cloves up front and mellows to a banana, apple juiciness, a hint of apricot and some tropical fruit vibes going on.

Cloves out front again followed by a sharp wheat quality, banana, bubble gum, a hint of mint, dried apricots, a herbal slightly floral hopping, almost medicinal. Light drying in the finish along with something a little minerally, almost like soft water.

Lush carbonation cascades around the tongue - edgy at times. Flavor seems a little thin though. Goes down pretty easy though I can't say it's my fav. Perhaps with some food or on a hot summer day the situation would change. Good but it's not a game breaker IMO.

500-ml brown glass bottle poured into a half-liter Weißbier glass.

Pours a hazy deep orangeish-gold with a full, rich head of slightly off-white foam that recedes quickly to a nice fat half-finger of froth that shows superb retention, sticking around until the end, but only hanging on to the walls of the glass in a couple fat legs.

The nose is a bit subdued; only a faint spicy hop character shows through alongside a touch of clove and fruit and a little wheatiness.

Medium-bodied and nicely effervescent; mildly sweet at the onset, shifting quickly to a grainy, wheaty base that is layered in the middle with citrusy hop notes and some clove-like spiciness, the hop bitterness and yeast-derived spiciness drying things out significantly and carrying through into the finish where the wheaty malt character shows through once again and lingers, with a hint of spice, on the back of the tongue.

Refreshing but a bit heavier than most Hefeweizens and also a bit fuller in its flavor range, not being quite so dominated by the heavy banana-and-clove notes so apparent in most examples of the style. Quite interesting, though from an American perspective, and from the perspective of one who enjoyed the collaborative Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse, a bit more character from the Cascade hops would have been interesting and welcome. Still, a nice variation on the style from a respectable German brewery, something that is very refreshing indeed.
