Had this on an unusually warm April day at Cafe St.-Ex in the early evenning and it was perfect.

Appeared a cloudy, yellow-gold color with a white, bubble-laiden head that left behind some lacing. Moderate to high level of carbonation. Aromas of ripe bananas, cloves, and dried leaves. A very earthy taste that is complex in how the varying flavors of tropical fruit, cloves, and earth meld together. Crisp, refreshing, and dry with a nice level of sweetness, but bitter at the same time. Very enjoyable, but perhaps a bit too tart for me after a pint or two.

Had this on-tap at Blind Tiger in Manhattan where they have a good selection of beers both bottle and on tap. friendly and informative bartenders. Pours an amber shade. Very easy to drink. A lot of flavor but still very smooth. Good winter Hefeweizen, not too light!! Would recommend this.

Light orange to amber in appearance with a big, foamy white head that eventually settles to a thin lacing.

Wheat and citrus to begin with, the is the usual hefeweizen banana and spice notes that follow this up and a touch of bubblegum as well. I could detect some background sweetness and fruity notes and yet more spice.

Spicy and bitter citrus with a strong banana and clove taste following this. There is some fruit, it hints at some grapefruit as well and there is a bitter (for a hefeweizen at least) finish.

Low to mild carbonation with this one and a bitter citrus palate that finishes quite wet and creamy whilst the beer has a medium body.

Very nice beer and slightly different to a lot of other hefeweizens in the fact that the flavours are a little more bitter and with more citrus than I expected but the beer itself was a good one.

Found this for sale at the beers of europe website for a good price.

Anyway, very good hefe appearance in the proper glassware, showing a radiant gold body under a billowing white head that leaves big globs of lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Textbook. Standard aroma of banana and clove is as expected, though the taste falls short of my hopes a little. The banana and clove are at the forefront and ably supported by lightly tangy wheat. Decent balance between sweet and sour, with a lightly bitter crisp finish that curtails the aftertaste rapidly. Medium body with the billowing carbonation you expect for a hefe.

While this is a good variation on the original I'm not sure its any better.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2012, so it's slightly out of date. ABV is stated as 5.2%. Picked up cheap from my local beer specialist. I'm a little confused about the difference between this and the original (Tap 7), but here goes.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A deeply translucent golden-amber with a ton of yeast. Yields a large fluffy head of white foam with decent retention; this eventually settles and dissipates. A rich, sweet aroma of bananas, cloves, marzipan, wheat malt and dry yeast esters. A subtle background fruitiness that is hard to place.

Tastes of wheat, with a bright, fruity character and a dry finish. Notes of bananas, cloves and earthy yeast. A hint of stewed hops and a faint staleness in the background. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied, but dry and lacking in carbonation. Coats the palate. Rather astringent. Aftertaste of bananas, wheat malt and yeast esters.

Not bad, though perhaps not the best weissbier I've tried. All the expected flavours and aromas are abundantly present, but the dry background staleness detracts from the taste. The flat body doesn't help either - I was expecting a live beer to be more effervescent. Still, a solid brew with a nice character. Worth sampling.

Very nice appearance - a thick white head atop a light gold hazy body. Good retention. Light citrus notes and wheat dominate the smell, making it very refreshing. The taste adds even more to this, making it a perfect summer beer. Very light body, dry finish. Overall, this is a good example of the style, but I've had many different hefeweizen and I've had better!

A - Pours a cloudy golden orange, with a firm and creamy head. Plenty of streamers keep solidly in place.

S - A fairly light aroma of orange zest, lemon, yeast and a little clove.

T - The fruity ester start becomes yeasty and caramelly. Clove and restrained phenols appear at the end, leaving a clean and refreshing aftertaste with a slightly spicy alcohol edge.

M - Light bodied, with soft carbonation, which builds and becomes quite lively at the end.

D - Very drinkable. Looks good, has a delicate aroma and flavour, and is utterly refreshing. Very solid beer.

Poured into a weizen glass with a cloudy orange hue, and initially a large white head. However the head didn't last too long, diminishing to a ring within a minute or two. The smell is distinctive, more citrus and spice than other hefeweizen, and banana less prominent. To taste, there are more grain flavours against the sourness and spiciness, with banana emerging on the finish. Very good length of finish, combining banana, citrus and spice. Good mouthfeel - rather creamy - although the high carbonation, whilst not unsuited to the style, initially obscures the flavour. Refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall it's a good beer, but I think the real value of Schneider Weisse is its distinctiveness compared with the rest of the wheat beer crowd, and this is what keeps me coming back to it.

So happy to find Scheider Weisse in Korea! (Go Emart!) I am a huge fan of Aventinus but had suprisingly never had their regular Hefe.

Pours golden blond with flufy white head

Smells of malty and fruity

Tastes like banana and spices (clove and coriander) with a citrus bite towards the end

Mouthfeel- Smooth and medium bodied. Not too much carbonation.

Overall- A great beer which is no surprise given the brewery. It still cant really compare to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier but still a great beer and a decent price (4 bucks for a big bottle)

A: Ruddy brown, which is strange to me. Agree with other posters, this is much darker than hefeweizens I'm used to. Massive frothy white head, but it quickly dissipates

S: Classic hefe aromas of banana, clove, pear.

T/M: Wheaty and malty; Aromas of banana and clove come through as well; medium bodied and palate cleansing

D: Very drinkable. Refreshing, low abv.

A good, solid Hefeweizen.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale brown color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight lemon, yeast, sweet malt, orange peel, and slight wheat. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is slightly smooth and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, slight citrus, slight wheat, and slight hop. Overall, good body, blend, and aroma. Little darker than I'm used to, but still a good example.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Pours honey yellow color and a white head that sizzle and goes away fairly quickly. A bit light in the aroma for me, there is just not much there. Malty, soury base with hints of grape, apple, bread and yeast. Medium body with high level of carbonation throughout. A nice hefe treat!

Serving: Bottle in a 0,5l seidel

A - A murky golden colour with a white thin foamhead that quickly dissapears.

S - Wheat, Malt and a slight hint of citrus. Very faint smell all in all.

T - Wheat, Malt, citrus and a slight hint of banana. The wheat taste stays a while in the mouth after all the other tastes dissapears.

M - A thin body with pretty strong carbonation.

D -Very good drinkabillity.

Overall: A good beer but I prefer Schneiderweisse original over this one.

A very tasty wheat beer, lots of banana, and hints of citrus, a very tasty way to quench your thirst. Can have some heavy sediment sometimes, but its great stuff.

500 ml bottle, lately labeled as "Meine blonde Weisse". Poured into a "Schneider Weisse" weizen glass.

Color is cloudy orange, head is large and foamy but doesn't leave much lace.
Fruity aroma. I can smell yeast, citrus, orange and wheat.
Medium body and well carbonated.

I have tried all beers from Schneider and although I like Tap 4,5,6 and 7 more than this one, it still is a very good Hefeweizen.

500ml bottle bought from Beers of Europe...

Poured a nice golden orange colour... White head poured typically big thick and foamy then faded slowly to good thick covering ... lots of carbonation rises to the surface... decent amount of thick sticky lacing...

Aroma - Good clove spiciness, light vanilla notes, noticeable grainy wheat, quite bready, pretty good fruitiness (banana and lemons), quite peppery, some hay traces...

Taste – Light malts, faint bubblegum traces mixed with some clove, definite yeastiness, good fruitiness (lemon, grapefruit and some apple notes), some very light floral honey sweetness, grassy and peppery hints, no real hops....

Feel - Fairly smooth with a little bite underneath... light body... Extremely refreshing and drinkable...

Overall - Another top notch German hefe... recommended...
