3.99/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.79):
Cloudy yellow to amber with a 2-fingers tall, white and foamy head that has great retention, leaving some nice lacing too.

Citrus lemon notes upfront with plenty of wheat, yeast and coriander as always with this style of beer. There is some lively orange zest and some banana too although this quite faint and definitely not as strong as with some other German hefeweizens and there is some spice right at the end.

Wheat and light coriander to begin along with some banana that comes across stronger than it did with the aroma. There is some light spice coming through along with some citrus flavours and a slightly floral taste and the tiniest hint of alcohol right at the end as well.

Medium bodied and soft with a very smooth feel with good carbonation and a touch of fizz. Touches of creaminess and very easy to drink.

An excellent beer as I expected, one of the best I've tried from the brewery although they have all been good for the most part. A little stronger than usual for the style but a nice change up and one I'd have again.

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

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 2/21/2013. Pours hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big orange zest, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big orange zest, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light bubblegum, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, light bubblegum, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a great balance of malt/spiciness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.06/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Perfect appearance for a German Hefe. A golden orange color with a good yeasty haze to it. About two fingers of very creamy yet slightly soapy looking head. Carbonation is easily visible in bubbles streaming up and down the sides of the glass.

S: I'm not picking up all that much on the smell honestly. There is a bit of clove and some sweetness but nothing is represented in extreme clarity. It's good though.

T: Clove and a slight hint of banana and maybe just a trace of bubblegum are evident. It's not over done or medicinal like some Hefe's and its just nicely done. Bready and sweet malts are present as well perhaps a bit more then I've come to expect from a Hefe perhaps due to the slightly higher then normal ABV. This is a very good thing though and IMO makes it able to stand up to some foods that a Hefe normally would feel right with.

M: Crisp clean and refreshing. Its very soft on the mouth though. It's not overly bubbly to the extent that it feels prickly or sharp but just enough so to balance out the medium sized body and give a sense of cleansing to the drinker.

O: A great beer overall. I could see multiple food pairings with this beer. Perhaps too expensive for my liking but I could easily see my self buying large quantities at a lower price.

Picture perfect bier, really great organic lighter shade of a weisse beer from Schneider, Cloudy orange golden, billowing off white head forms thick chunky lacing down the sides of my glass. First whiff gives you loads of banana, clove, and spicy character from the yeast strain. Perfectly balanced this Wiesen Edel-Weisse is a work of art, perfect interplay of wheat, citrus character, grassy hay, clove, and bananas and bubblegum nothing overpowers finishes somewhat clean and super refreshing. Hands down the best organic beer I've ever had. A bit of dry chalky character is added to the bier once you pour the rest of the yeast sediment into the glass, this proves the theory that beer is food.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A: Cloudy yellow with some darker brown hues. The fluffy white head stands at an impressive three finger height and retains very well. Clumps of foamy lacing stick to the glass.

S: Yeasty and spicy. Fruit blossoms, incense, chalky, subtle white pepper and clove. Green bananas. Wheaty and bready. A memorable nose that pops.

T: As in the nose, the yeast really leads. Chalky, and maybe even a little musty. Hint of white pepper. A touch medicinal. Green banana. Apple blossom. Walnut. Bready wheat and dough. Banana bread, peppery spice, and yeast on the finish.

M: Medium-light body. Airy and creamy. Highly effervescent.

O: A nice hefeweizen. Very yeast forward and raw, even for the style. Distinct and unique.

Bottle poured into a glass beer boot

Honey yellow with light carbonation leading to a thick, fluffy white three finger foam cap. Faint lacings .

Aroma of hops and banana yeast. Hint of citrus.

Traditional Wiesse beer taste, hint of banana. Light mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Smooth, slight bitterness on the side if the tongue. Smooth finish.

Great smooth drinking Wiesse beer. Worthy of multiple repeats, preferably on a hot summer day.

Poured into a tulip.

A very nice complex weizen. Definitely do not forget to swirl the bottle before pouring as it is a better tasting beer with the sediment. 4

A – Poured a clear golden (without disturbing the sediment) with a white/white dense one-finger head. Good head retention. Lacing pour. After swirling the beer it poured an appropriately cloudy faded gold color. 4

S – Spicey over top of citrus notes, wheaty, minor clove over top of even fainter banana. 4.25

T – Slightly peppery, wheaty and bready. 3.75

MF – A bit thin, light bodied, medium dry finish with some lasting sharpness on the palate. 3.5

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Tap #4 Weisen Edel-Weiss. Date on bottle says "13.186". Guessing that means it was bottled on the 186th day of 2013, which puts it around July 5th?

Appearance: Beautiful, hazy, orange colored beer with a large, frothy white head. Really good looking beer.

Smell: Tons of your typical hefe aromas like banana and clove, mixed in with some citrus. Bready wheat malts and sourdough yeast. Top notch.

Taste: Medium bodied with a thick texture. Very chewy compared to a regular hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel: Something is lacking here. There is a strong twang in the finish. Does not go down as easy as it seems like it should. Maybe the strength of the ABV has something to do with it.

Overall: One-step away from being a world class beer. Needs to be more drinkable to reach it's full potential. Just slightly too abrasive on the palate. Really good beer overall though.

Mouthfeel: Long feel from start to finish.

Overall: A nice liquid meal, very well done.

4.51/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

typical Weiss-colored brew. bright and golden with some foam on top. beautiful pour.
smells rich and fruity; yeasty and wheat-y....
taste is full. lots of richness to it. very typical of a wheat, Weiss. very nice. I have to admit I burned out on this style a couple years ago, but I can still offer a fair review. just finished a Tap 6, this one is less intense, lighter, and richer. others are saying a green apple flavor, but I can still get a little banana from this. maybe it's the tartness....
overall, a solid hefe. I've had this one before, but not reviewed it. I purchased it because I was running out of options at the local Total Wine (maybe I AM drinking a bit too much lately....) and wanted a decent brew to help tide me over while I nurse myself back to health.... the Tap 6 was good. I think Tap 5 is next? or the Dr. Tongue? two hefes in a row, three wheats in a row, may be too much for my sensitive taste buds...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

500ml bottle served in a tulip (didn't bring a weizen glass on vacation). Label reads Wiesen Edel-Weisse, so I'm not sure of the bottle age. Pours a caramel hue with a slight haze to the clarity and a loose, butter-colored head that immediately disperses into nothing. Copious tiny bubbles adhere to the walls of the glass and effervesce in-solution. Nose is not what I expected - tart green apples fermenting towards cider, a bready character and cut grass. Taste consistent with nose; however, a bit duller and also a little wet cardboard towards the back. Mouthfeel is light and lively with some astringency. Overall, less than impressed with this beer. Not sure if it's past its prime, but really doesn't possess any of the attributes I've come to associate with the style.

This review is of the tap 4 Weisen Edel-Weisse. Light amber colored. Good clarity. Millimeter thin layer of foam on top. Enticing banana and fresh baked sourdough bread aroma. Refreshing on the front of the palate. I get a lot of wheat on the forefront and some light clove on the back of the palate. Another sip and I swear I get a bit of sourdough pretzel flavoring. Fairly elaborate for a style that tends to be pretty simple.

4.39/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A:
Pours a cloudy brown-tinged straw color with a perfect (at first) two-inch head of creamy beige foam; really active, champagne-like carbonation visible. Excellent retention; spotty lacing.

S:
Really pungent with a lot going on. Floral and ripe banana aromas are definitely at the forefront. Nice doughy odors as well with just a touch of booziness and some slightly spicy vanilla.

T:
Wow! Soft and almost sweet, but it walks a fine line. Never gets overwhelming. Very nice. Slight tea taste throughout. Increasing bready sweetness (really tastes/feels like cream soda) with a little lemony finish.

M:
Soft and well-carbonated. The head is a nice creamy counterpart to the prickly carbonation. Medium body, but easy drinking.

O:
A genuinely good beer. This is a really nice drinkin' beer and is well worth enjoying. It has a lot crammed into (very well, to be sure) a beer that usually is characterized as being fairly neutral (also in a good way). This is what makes it (to me) so good. It is in-your-face and bold but still has all the complete unoffensiveness of most other wheat/wit/weiss beers
Would definitely get it again (hell, I am going to pour myself another right now).
Worth finding.

Reviewing Mein Grünes and the prior version "Wiesen Edel-Weisse" one after the other here.

Wiesen Edel-Weisse is first. 1 pint 9 fl oz brown glass bottle with attractive label art and branded pry-off cap served into a Samuel Smith's nonical pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. 6.2% ABV confirmed. Cost was $4.49. USDA ORganic. Best before: 12/08/14.

Served cold, straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours almost entirely foam; a good eight fingers worth (out of a possible 10). Beige in colour. Decent creaminess. Okay frothiness. Great (~10+ minute) retention, though the ABV isn't all that high which lessens the achievement. No real lacing as the head recedes. Complexion is fairly attractive, but not as soft or smooth as it should be.

Body colour is a murky hazy orange-yellow. Average vibrance for the style. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Translucent but nontransparent.

Not in league with the best beers in the style, but certainly en pointe.

Sm: Clove. Unusually fruity for a hefeweizen; I get orange and lemon citrus but also some fruity hops. Clean malts, pilsner malts, wheat. Banana (from the yeast). A bit bready. On the sweeter end of the bitter/sweet spectrum. Allspice. A kiss of funky yeast; odd for the style. Maybe a bit overhopped? Cascade isn't ideal here. A pleasant aroma of mild strength, but it isn't very fresh or refreshing. I'm intrigued, but it's not ideal or perfect. No off-flavours are noticeable.

T: Wheat, pale malts, pilsner malts, clean barley. Banana and clove from the yeast. Complementary floral hops. Some unwelcome sour dough. All the right notes are there, but the balance and freshness just isn't. It doesn't come together in that classic gestalt hefeweizen way. Great hefeweizens are artful combinations of subtlety and complexity using very few ingredients. This is pretty good, but falls short of the best in the style. No alcohol comes through. Raw and unsophisticated.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Good thickness. Pretty good presence on the palate. Pretty good carbonation. Suits the flavour profile well, but doesn't feel custom-tailored to it. Not oily, gushing, or hot. Decent body, but it does feel a bit timid.

Dr: Quite drinkable, but I hoped for better from a traditional German brewery. It's a pretty good hefeweizen, but there are far better traditional German offerings at or below this price range. As much as I love Schneider & Sohn, this just doesn't live up. A biteen pricey for the quality.

B-

---

Now for Mein Grünes - compared side by side with the Edel-Wiesse. (Review truncated to meet Beeradvocate's word limit).

A: Pours almost entirely foam; 4 fingers wide out of a possible 5. Smooth complexion. Beige. Nicely thick. Creaminess could be better. No lacing.

Body colour is a bright clearer pale copper-yellow than the Edel-Weisse. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. More vibrant.

Sm: White pepper. More sourdough. Fruit is far more restrained; less orange and lemon citrus. Hop profile is timid. Mild to moderate in strength. No yeast or alcohol is detectable; not getting any clove or banana.

T: Cracker malts, pronounced sourdough. White pepper. Almost saison-esque. Orange and lemon citrus are sorely missed here. Maybe a bit of banana. No real clove. Yeast is quite restrained. The floral hop profile is nice, but is quite minimal. Again, the balance, complexity, and subtlety just isn't here for a great hefeweizen. It's much more spicy (from the white pepper) than other traditional German examples of the style.

Mf: Same as the Edel-Weisse.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but strangely built for a hefeweizen. I wouldn't get this again at it's $4.49 price.

Low B-

Overall, I prefer the Edel-Weisse.

Poured into a weizen glass. The beer pours clear golden with a white head and lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is the classic banana and clove smell you get from a hefeweizen along with the wheat. The taste follows the nose. The banana and clove aren't extremely forward, but are there. There's some breadiness from the malt and some back end hop bitterness. The body is light with strong carbonation. The finish is clean and this is a very drinkable beer. This is an excellent beer.

A: Dull gold with almost a miniscule hint of green, first pour is relatively filtered, but I see lots of sediment in the bottle. 1 finger of creamy slight orange tinge head. Medium carbonation.

S: Bready, yeasty, bananas, cloves, Belgian like yeasts, grass, pheonols, orange peel.

T: Wow. Complex, and it tells quite a story. First I get a yeasty burst like Belgian style yeasts much like you'd find in a tripel, then bubble gum and coriander, pheonols galore, back to a yeasty bready light body that's dry and almost champagne like, then again and intense hit of phenols, orange peel, coriander and Belgian yeasts. Little bitterness. Light sweetness throughout.

M: Medium light body, medium high carbonation, dry finnish.

O: I am so glad I found this one, and got it inspite of the price here in China (almost 8 bucks for half liter). Lots of complexity and beauty. I love this brewer, and Tap 6 is one of my all time favourites (their Weizenbock). This one is renewing my interest in Hefeweizens, which I’d lost after so many poor examples of little heard of cheap German imports that I suppose are duping some Chinese.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle (Best Before 22/12/13), poured into a pokal/weizen like glass.

Cloudy orangey brown colour with some carbonation rising steadily. Pours a thick frothy off-white head that subsided to a thin cap, slightly sticky lacing.

Fruity hefe aromas, slight very lightly toasted bread, something like a proper pale cloudy apple juice and brown sugar/honey.

Tastes like a loaf of bread left to soak up a few bottles of hefe. Some very lightly toasted bready malt yeast & wheat, the effervescence and hop spice hits just afterwards, and the honeyed appleness comes through in the finish. It's a tasty refreshing beer with just a little alc. presence. Medium body and med/high carbonation.

This is somewhat like Weihenstephaner Vitus to me (more of an apple/pear and caramel), and at a lower ABV far more drinkable. I'd easily take this over Vitus in future.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle (Schneider's older bottle design, so no idea on the age)

Bright hazy orange with a giant tan head. (I do recommend swirling this one before pouring to get all of the yeast in the glass)

Very distinctive aroma. Citrus, spices, wheat bread and then more citrus.

Flavor: Lots of spices (clove, nutmeg, peppercorn, a little bit of hops but they are very subdued), wheat bread (maybe with some sourdough notes), maybe a little bit of white wine and honey too.

I think the ABV is higher than the bottle indicates. Lots of nice warmth.

Medium to full mouthfeel. Smooth but a little tingly from the citric notes. Appropriate carbonation.

Gloriously good.

Wow. An extremely good beer. Hats off to the makers.Pure German ecstasy.

Schneider Weisse Wiesen Edel-Weisse Tap 4 is just an overly awesome ale.

Poured into Weihenstephan traditional hefe glass. An infinitely thick head. It takes at least 3 pours to empty the bottle. A very fluffy and softy like white colored head with infinite retention. Dazzling sticky lacing on the sides left by the receding head. Color inside the glass is a very hazy pale strawish golden color. Translucent. A lot of bubbles seen rising up vigorously. Wow.

Aroma is moderately in strength. Sweet banana esters upfront combined well with clove heavy phenols. This is one nice combination to have if done right. Very slight noble German hop aroma. A good amount of yeast mixed with slight wheat sweetness.

Flavors are even better than the nose and a lot different than some very good hefes. The usual banana, clove and wheat flavors tune well with the cascade and noble hops to provide a nicely refreshing slight hoppy bitter touch to this beer and makes it different. The finish still remains semi dry however. A lot of spicy flavor that is mild by my standards but typical hefe stuff.

Mouth feel is nothing sort of a well made hefe. Nicely balanced light to medium feel. A lot of effervescence upfront. High on carbonation. No warmth and astringency.

This is an epic brew. Certified USDA organic. Made with cascade and hallertauer hops. Highly recommended.

S - I can sense that this will have a lot of clove in it; not my favorite flavor, but I can deal

T - Wow, clove bomb

M - nice carbonation; not over-done; really like it; clove aftertaste sticks around a bit much for me

O - not my cup of tea; too much clove flavor for me; will not be revisiting this

Thanks Thorpe. 500 mL bottle.

Pours a hazy dark golden with a collar of white head that has adequate retention. Aroma of banana and yeast, green apple and pepper and a little smoke. Flavor is soft and smokey with wheat and clove, some pepper in the finish. Medium thick and moderate carbonation.
