Malt, citrus hops, spice. Nice balance for its style, unique wheat. Grainly, prickly carbonation. Bittersweet lemony finish. Cloves, ginger, apple, banana. Medium mouthfeel and interesting aroma. Stronger yeast than expected from a wheat, though fruity. Alcohol warming. (270 characters)

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. (511 characters)

A: It poured cloudy yellow into a weizen glass with a perfect foamy head. A moderate level of carbonation is visible and a layer of bubbles consistently covered the surface.
S: There are familiar aromas of banana, bubble gum and cloves in the nose, although there are some hints of malt in the background that you would not normally expect from a wheat beer.
T: The taste is very well balanced between the flavors of bananas and spices and bready malts.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and smooth on the palate.
D: This goes down very easily and is a perfect for the spring or fall when you're not looking for a wheat beer that's light and refreshing. It's also quite filling and leaves you feeling like you've just had a snack. (732 characters)

Bottle picked up at Chevy Chase in DC. Served in a weizen glass.

Pours a medium gold color that is totally transparent...very weird. THe head is bone white with decent retention, though no real lacing. The nose is slightly bready with some mild yeast character. Disappointing. No real clove or banana. The flavor is just s plain. Beer has a medium body and is too chewy. Not a huge fan of this one. (399 characters)

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

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden color with the typical hefe head which remains around for the duration and leaves a few shards of lace

Smell: Banana esters waft from the glass along with cloves and lemongrass

Taste: Starts out with a lemony, banana bread flavor that, by mid-palate, is joined by the clove spice and bitter, grassy hops; after the swallow, the banana and clove esters form one layer, with the grassy hop elements adding another underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with relatively high carbonation

Drinkability: Interesting to get a layer of hoppy bitterness accompanying the usual hefe taste; worth seeking out as a twist on the style (654 characters)

A solid brew, that perhaps gets overlooked. Brewed in true German Hefe fashion, the beer is formal, clean, and pure. But, this brew does have a few deterants that cannot be overlooked. Pours an orange / copper hue that takes on rusty sediments and an earthy look. The carbonation seems high, and never forms the pedegree foam-stand that the wheat should give--leaving the beer quite fizzy to the eye and abrasive to the palate. Flavors are solid with barley malts, wheat malts, yeasty esters, peppery / spicy hops, and a plethera of fresh fruits (banannas, oranges, and lemons to name a few). The carbonation keeps the beer from the soft, velvety texture, but facilitates a clean refreshing character. Finishes a bit muddy and dull hurts drinkability. (751 characters)

Bottle: Poured a hazy light orangey color wheat ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of great wheat malt a mix between some dry hops and some light citrus hops. Aroma of lightly sweet malt is quite dominant with some notes of dry and floral hops which provides an interesting and unique finale to this beer. Body is quite full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very well done and while not adhering to any purity law it retains some good drinkability and uniqueness. (529 characters)

Draft at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Cloudy blond body topped by a frothy white head. Sweet, bready aroma. Banana and apple, mild spiciness. Complex palate, but sweet for the style. Banana bread, green apple, white pepper and clove wrapped in malty sweetness. Good, but a little cloying; it starts and finishes sweet. Schneider has better beers. (338 characters)

500ml bottle - still called 'George Schneider's Wiesen Edel-Weisse' on the newly arrived product in Alberta. Purity Law of 1516, blah, blah, blah, Cascade hops. Wait, what?

This beer pours a somewhat cloudy medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of over-flowing (right, the label says 'Original Bottle Fermentation'), puffy eggshell white head, which leaves some nice loopy coral reef lace around the glass as it eventually seeps away.

It smells of sharp citrus, competing with equally sharp wheat grain, the fruitiness of the hops tipping the scale, before the banana, clove, and yeast usual suspects come to stake their rightful claim. The taste is grainy, edgy wheat malt, moderately bitter lemon and orange citrus, some displaced banana chip dry fruitiness, unfettered clove spice, and tame earthy, leafy hops.

The bubbles are fairly sedate, but make themselves known here and there, the body a sturdy medium weight, and actually rather smooth, very little messing with that metric. It finishes sweet, wheaty, and still nice and fruity, of the hoppy sort - orange/banana smoothie, mostly, the spice and hop still holding on to a lesser extent.

Even the stubborn Germans are giving in to the Pacific NW hop craze, whodathunk? Well, it's not really that big of a surprise, as it doesn't technically violate the Rheinheitsgebot, but it is a bit of Sturm und Drang for those with specific Bavarian beer expectations. A decent old-world hefe, with well-integrated bitter fruity new-world hops. What's not to like? (1,526 characters)

3.95/5  rDev -2.9%
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. (1,987 characters)

This was the last of my Weiss beers in the fridge and I had been saving it for a good night, I chose tonight as it looked like the last warm night in a while. Poured a nice and very hazy Golden yellow with a good amount of sediment floating around. A very nice large white head of foamy lace took shape on top and had very nice retention, hanging around for a good five minutes before settling down to a more respectable level and leaving behind copious side lace. Smell was very nice, lots of yeast and wheat were evident as well as a nice little bit of bittering hops. A small touch of some light, tart fruit was hinting around in there as well. The taste was classic, very nice light body with a very smooth texture. Great yeast and grass like flavor on top of a light bread back. Some light fruit notes also jumping around and accentuating it very nicely. Overall this was a great classic German brew. Very drinkable and full of flavor, and Organic too! Can’t really ask for much more in the style, this was very nice all around. (1,034 characters)

Pours just a slightly hazy straw color with a white one finger head that is gone quite quickly,love the aromas clovey spice and banana with a light iron note underneath it all.This is a real hefty weisse at 6.2% like the same non organic version I have yet to try very sturdy full mouthfeel.Very wheaty flavor profile along with a clove aspect just enough citrus/lemon underneath to keep it from being one dimensional.A damn fine weisse and big to boot. (453 characters)

11 ounce goblet - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Buford, Georgia.

Appearance: Arrived a lightly hazed, golden body with a half inch of dense, lasting, white foam.

Smell: Floral, earthy, pithy notes well ahead of the more subtle sniffs of malted wheat, clove, and banana.

Taste: Initial taste of light pale malts and wheat malt with its characteristic tanginess. Lightly sweet. Limited hints of banana and clove spice. Earthy, floral, citrusy hops with a particularly bold bitterness. The citrus comes across as a flavor of powderized lemon pith and yields a bit of a citric jolt. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Regrettably, for me it doesn't exhibit the fullness, the pleasant creaminess you get with many hefes.

Drinkability: With its diminished banana and clove qualities, the elevated bitterness, and understated body, well, it fell flat with me. However, oddly enough, their Hopfen-Weisse really resonated with me. Ah well! (984 characters)

A - Pours with two fingers of white foam on top of a hazy, amber-brown body. The head settles fairly quickly, but coats the glass in a nice, thick layer of lace.

S - Very rich, bready malt with some light caramel and toffee. A little bit of spicy clove in the background.

T - Bready malt up front with a little bit of caramel. Some light clove and just a touch of bubblegum in the middle. The finish is full of banana bread character with a touch of vanilla.

M - Medium-thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Very malty with a much less significant yeast character than the other Schneider beer that I have had. It has a spicy character to the yeast that works well with the malt and gives the beer a baked character that is kind of reminiscent of banana bread. (800 characters)

Cloudy, amber/golden with a huge, rocky, off-white head. The aroma is quite complex but somewhat restrained: spicy, earthy, hoppy, citrusy, bubblegum, clove, and light banana. The body is light but the mouthfeel is filling - more zesty than creamy. The flavor is sharper than most weizen - rounded, but less sweet. The wonderfully balanced spicy malt and hop character is remarkably refreshing. Finishes soft and gently spicy. Noteably unique and quite impressive. (464 characters)

500 ml bottle into a Hefe glass.

The initial pour is quite foamy at first but it doesn't take too long to get it all into the glass. Pours a hazy orange with some straw colored highlights and several fingers of poofy brite-white head. Settles down into a solid creamy layer that retains well, leaving some solid lacing down the sides of the glass. The aroma is fairly vibrant with notes of wheat, orange, lemon, bananas, and a fairly prominent clove spiciness.

The taste starts with a firm base of wheat sweetness that props up strong citric notes of orange and lemon as well as some yeasty bananas and spicy pepper and clove. The mouthfeel has a moderate carbonation to it, with a crisper feel that then gets creamier as it spreads out across the palette. Maybe a bit too thick at times?

Solid selection here tonight. Nice full flavors made this an enjoyable quaff but I think that maybe if the spiciness was toned down just a touch and the carbonation ramped up, it would have increased the drinkibility even more. (1,022 characters)

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dirty gold color with a thin off-white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of wheat, light caramelized malts, bananas, and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then there is some sweetness that comes in next from flavors of bananas, caramel and spices. The hops presence is mild and bring a little bit of balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, not the best representation of style, it's not a bad beer but I was expecting a little more from this beer given the rep of the brewer. Overall, there are not many beers in the style that I would select this beer over. (939 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 500 ml (16.9 oz) slender brown bottle with info about the brewery on the back label, no freshness date.

Appearance: Cloudy orange with a thick meringue-like cream coloured head, this is due to the vigorous pouring and swirling of the yeast into the glass.

Smell: Pungent aromatic spicy clove with noticeable fruity alcoholic esters. Sweetness from a bready wheat malt character and a faint lemon aroma.

Taste: Sturdy medium body, smooth creamy mouth feel though an ample carbonation holds everything together. Straight forward tickly spicy flavour of cloves with suggestions of nutmeg and faded pepper corns. Hops are nearly non existent and are no match for the spicy character of this brew. Malt is quite sufficient and has a sour dough like quality to it, vague and mellow nuttiness from the yeast rounds out the beer with a complex elegance. Alcohol is evident and warms the mouth and body equally. The raw flavours of this intricate beer give a confusing yet blissful end.

Notes: German wheat in the raw, very robust and in you face. A beer to consume with full respect and enjoy like royalty because this is a trophy brew that flexes for all of the senses. (1,188 characters)

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 (495 characters)

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. (3,838 characters)

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. (698 characters)

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

Appearance: pours out a hazy, light orange color, pale, clear yellow at the bottom, yielding a full, bubbly snow-white head.
Aroma: Huge citrus, lemon and orange, sugar and spice, great hits of banana and clove, plus a little vanilla on the side, with an additional, and much appreciated bready/yeasty flavor. Fresh, wide open, and airy.
Mouth-filling texture, very tasty, flavor takes over, floods, and refreshes that entire cavern of the tastebuds. A trifle sour, but still mitigatingly sweet and fruity. Banana flavor continues, and the complex variety of tastes keeping company in the glass makes for very rewarding consumption. Finish is just long enough.
Much lighter, in taste and mouthfeel, as well as color, than the "Original", but in it's own, a hallmark of this approach to the hefe weizen. Certainly the kind of beer American weizen brewers try to emulate. (872 characters)

From 11/05/13 notes. Had this at Radegast in Brooklyn, served in a 0.5L weiss glass.

a - Pours a somewhat clear golden-yellow color with two fingers of fluffy slightly off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty nice.

s - Smells of bananas, cloves, light citrus hops, fruit, honey, spices, pepper, yeast, bready malts, grains, and dough. Very nice nose with some good banana and citrus up front.

t - Tastes of dough, biscuit malts, bready malts, light bananas, cloves, spice, pepper, yeast, earthy notes, wheat, and grains. Little more malt and less fruit here, good though.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Body is super smooth and creamy and it is very easy to drink. You could definitely have a few of these.

o - Overall a very good beer; one of the better German hefeweizens in the US that you can find pretty easily. Nice bananas up front and super easy to drink, would recommend and would have again for sure. (954 characters)

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. (1,377 characters)
