Finally I get around to a Schneider Weisse beer. I have been threatening to review one of their brews ever since I reviewed the mighty Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier years ago (and that threat was actually to review the Tap 6 Unser Aventinus which I tried in my craft beer infancy and have had no luck getting since). It has been a long road to get my hands on a Schneider Weisse - they really should think more about getting in to the Australian market [purely for my sake of course]. Anyway I have "my green" and now I'm going to enjoy it.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Weizen glass.

A: Hazy with a gold and amber body and a firm 2cm cream head. Plenty of bubble action going on in the glass with some interesting patterns forming of their own accord.

S: Spicy clove phenols upfront on the nose and rather a bit of a nice dominating aroma for this Weizen. Hints of banana bread and herbaceous hops also give some body to the fragrance but it's the clove phenols that really stand out.

T: In a word: Fantastic! There is quite a lot more going on with the flavour profile of this Weizen - spice from cloves, pepper and cardamom mix in with lemon citrus, herbaceous hops, bitter orange and a hint of banana which lingers in the background.

M: Not so fantastic, certainly not as good as the Weihenstephaner Hefe in this respect - medium bodied with excitable carbonation, it's missing the "creamy" feel of a great Weizen.

D: Well this is a Weizen that takes no prisoners. It has some characteristics that really make it stand apart from Weihenstephaner's classic Hefe and in fact that is one of the reasons I rate this brew so highly - it has something Weihenstephaner doesn't have: bold spices and lemon/orange action going on. If that is something that you look for in a Weizen then look no further than Mein Grünes, a superlative brew, prost!

Food match: Roast and cured meats are a winner with this exciting ale, along with any other bold spicy flavoured foods you can get your hands on.

Pours beautifully with a good lacey head that lasts for most of the drink. Lovely golden color and a nice aroma but overly hoppy in flavour for my palate and a little too much on the bitter side too. Still a very decent drink though, but far from being a favourite.

Pours with a huge, fluffy white head with very nice lacing and great retention. It's a beautiful orange-gold colour, nice and hazy. The smell is quite interesting, consisting mostly of hops which is obviously unusual for this type of beer. Lots of hop flavour too, with a very refreshing feel. This is top quality hefeweizen.
