A nice, classic bottle fermented and aged Hefeweizen. Although i drank it early (I believe it was dated 10/30/06 and I drank it around 1/27/06), I was still impressed. I had many American Hefeweizens/wheat but wanted to get my hands on a real good German Hefeweizen to see what it was all about. Schneider-Weisse did not let me down. It poured a nice, dark gold/amber color with a quarter inch, off-white head with decent retention. It reduced a little bit, but a little swirl to release some of the aromas brought it back. The smell was magnificent with the fruits and banana esters rising to the occassion. At first, a slightly bland, seltzer taste, but I believe that was just me because after that first "coating" of my tongue, the greatness of what was the German Hefeweizen let me know that this beer was uber. A pretty thick mouthfeel; not too overwhelming but you knew you were drinking beer. Overall, a very refreshing beer and I believe that the fact that it was not that aged played a factor into the overall beerness (unfortunately, I saw the date after I opened it). Still, a great beer and highly reccommended.

pours out a very dark, somewhat clouded, copperish color with a very generous pillowy head that sticks. the addition of the ample yeast sediment turns it a murky swamp brown. but fear not, while without the yeast it is a tasty and refreshing wheat beer...the adding of the yeast multiplies the flavors and complexities in the nose and tongue. it smooths out the full mouthfeel, and provides a unique spicy aspect above and beyond the token clove and banana and other faint fruit flavors. smoke, wood, tobacco, and nutmeg are ones that come to mind. i could sit here all day and night admiring this brew. very nice!

At the time of this review, this is #5 on the "Top Beer - Hefeweizen" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a weizen glass. Beer is yellow and hazy, high carbonation, nice head, a little small, retention low. Some lacing.

Aroma is banana, complete banana.

Beer is wet and light to medium in body. Moderate carbonation on the palate, sweet, a little grainy, nice fruits and a great palate with a nice finish, This is almost exactly like Weihenstephaner, meaning this was very good and I'd have it again.

Poured into a Weihenstephaner weizen glass

Schneider's Meine Blonde weiss is an exceptional hefeweizen in the brewery's portfolio that should be more available in the US, given the brewery's existing representation; it is sad that availability is non-existent outside of Europe given the quality of this beer. Comparable to a lighter version of the brewery's "Unser Original" or a slightly darker, deeper Weihenstephaner, this is a beer dense with flavor, yet still somewhat light and accessible, focusing on banana, yeast, and bread qualities.

Pours a very tall head, composed of small to medium-sized bubbles, that has fairly long retention of several minutes, eventually descending to a 0.5cm cap atop the beer. As the head is exposed to air, it "dries," creating a meringue-like effect at the top of the beer. Leaves fairly excellent lacing along sides of glass, which is renewed with each swirl. Body is a bright copper-orange color, with pale yellow highlights; holding beer up to light does not reduce coloration much at all. Body is opaque from suspended yeast, with very visible carbonation.

Aroma is rather bright and forthcoming, of banana esters, yeast, and meyer lemon citrus tartness/sweetness being dominant. Secondary scents of apple cider and bubblegum.

Taste is delicious, with notable wheat malt, subdued meyer lemon citrus tartness, banana esters, and yeast on the front of the tongue. Mid-palate picks up pleasant sweetness from malt, apple cider flavors, banana bread flavor, and continued yeast presence. Aftertaste of residual wheat malt sweetness, banana bread, and a bit of tangy flavor from malt and yeast choices.

Beer is medium bodied, with ample carbonation to propel this pleasantly along the palate. Finish is dry, inevitably leading to the desire for more.
