Picked this up at a great beer shop in Darmstadt, Germany, Maruhn Welt der Getränke. Hazy yellow-amber pour with a two finger foamy white head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is earthy and spicy with hints of lemon, yeast, banana, clove, grass, wheat, and white pepper. The taste is herbal and complex with hints of lemon, clove, white pepper, corriander, subtle tangerine, banana, pear, apple, and grass. The mouthfeel is crisp and light bodied with fizzy carbonation and a nice tangy, dry finish. Overall, this is another world class offering from Schneider Weisse, especially considering I'm not a Weizen guy. It's really refreshing and hugely drinkable.

Pours a pale, slightly hazy amber. Nice looking head, creamy white, lingers a while. Smells much maltier than a typical heffe of the sort I'm familiar with, with some notes of toast and honey. Taste is malty, more like an October-fest marzen than a heffe, but not unlikable. Subtle bubble gum in the background. Not my favorite of the style, but good.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a hefeweizen glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a small puffy layer. It is a hazy pale orange with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Bananas, clove, wheat, and vanilla.
Taste: Tastes almost like banana bread. Chewy wheat, vanilla, and clove.
Mouthfeel: Refreshing, chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Pretty awesome hefeweizen. This brewery puts awesome beers.

Poured from a bottle into an Erdinger Weissbrau weissbier glass. The pour is fairly clear with just a little haze. It sports 2-3 fingers of dense white foam. Retention isn't as good as I'd like. The nose has lots of sweet cereal-like notes, bananas, cloves, and baking spices.
Light body and good flavor up front. I get those crisp, slightly tart notes from the wheat, a little lemon, some bananas, bread, and clove. Sadly, rather than build to a crescendo, the flavor fades noticeably near the back of the throat. It's surprising because there's ample carbonation to open up the palate. The finish is little more than a briefly lingering banana-like flavor. A very nice flavor, but a rather disappointing finish for such a fine brewer. Still, it's refreshing and sessionable and I do enjoy drinking it.
I may try this beer again. Perhaps the bottle I purchased was a bit old and the hops, though certainly not center-stage in this style, were too faded to provide the spicy, peppery kick I felt was missing on the back end of this one. An outstanding beer, but judging from this one tasting it's not quite up to the level of the 2 or 3 best offerings of this style.
