A cloudy light amber tone topped by a thick dense crisp white head. A very malty smell. Just what you should expect from a German Hefe. The taste doesn't let down either. A good strong malt presence followed by a crisp clean taste of water. Feels a little off, maybe too bubbly. Over all a very good Hefeweizen. (311 characters)

Pours a dark gold color which is hazy. The head is pretty thick white and soapy. The brews immediately smells of banana and spice. Other fruit tones exist, but I cannot place the smell. The taste of the beer is fruity, malty and refreshing. It seems more carbonated than other brews and I suspect this is due to the style. Good mouthfeel and very drinkable. (357 characters)

This is awesome. Perfectly balanced banana/clove/malt. Beaut thick, persistent head. This is the ideal hefe. Everything is in balance and it is not just typical of style but the benchmark. Unfortunately its bloody expensive and hard to get. That's all I've got to say. (268 characters)

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) (550 characters)

Poured a cloudy copper colour with a nice thick head which diminished fairly quickly (mine wasn't a very vigoruous pour). The smell is of cloves with some other hints of fruit and wheat malt. Very bold clove and wheat malt taste with some subtle hints of banana - a nice lingering finish. Carbonation was not overly aggressive and made for a smooth drinking beer. This was a very nice hefe and I will be buying more of these.

Went well with pepper-crusted lamb steak... (472 characters)

Bottle from thrifty beverage, Chester, NY

Pours a dark brown. Much darker than most Hefe-weizens i have tried. two finger head, minor lacing. Good head retention.

Nice malty taste, ever so slightly fruity. very good drinkability. Nice finish and smooth mothfeel. (264 characters)

Walking around the streets of Munich, i was happy to have stumbled blindly into the Weiss Brauhaus where I had my first Schneider Weiss Tap 1 Mein Blonde... The beer served in it's appropriate glass had a nice golden glow and the taste was very smooth and delicious. The best beer I had in Germany. (298 characters)

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. (797 characters)

Draft beer at Weisses Brauhaus. Good looking blonde, slight cloudiness. Very good hop aroma and the taste is a complex spice and a touch of bitterness. Very good. (162 characters)

Caramel yellow pour, little head.

Smells of banana, hope and spice. A little bitterness but it's refreshing. Sort of blankets and soothes the tongue. It's on the thinner side but not enough to take away from it. It's a simple, wheaty beer. Good for fans of the style since it does it so well. (293 characters)

500ml bottle into 0.5L Franziskaner weizen glass. Crazy amount of foam -- took a while to pour, but the foam eventually reduces down to a 1 finger head that sticks around a while even after pouring the yeasty sediment through it. Dull hazy dark amber color, somewhat darker than I expected.

Aroma of wheat and malt plus banana, clove, and slight bubblegum? Taste opens up with a bit of sour lemon, cloves, and banana and yields to a fresh yeasty pretzel bread and light maltiness. Slightly salty earthiness peeks in maybe from the yeast?

Carbonation is too low, and this finishes too wet. Hops only maybe expressed in the initial citrus tang, almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavier than I expected for a hefeweizen.

Tastes a little bland; it's got a nice bunch of flavors working in there, but not strong enough and the bready wheat and malt are not as assertive or deep as I would prefer. Drinkability is a bit "ehhh" since I was underwhelmed by the taste... maybe this bottle was a little old? (1,002 characters)

A definite classic, and considering that the Schneider brewery concentrates its efforts solely on weissbier, this should come as no surprize. Excellent spiciness, with strong clove notes, though not so spicy as to override fruit notes. It is this balance that gives this beer its rightful place in the pantheon. (313 characters)

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. (475 characters)

4.11/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Opaque, toasty brown color. Not as light as many hefes.

Smell: Citrusy -- but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet. Malty. Overall a subtle aroma.

Taste: Now this takes me back to Germany! Has a real Hefe taste, without being too acidic or too strong. Sweet, citrusy, and even a little nutty.

Drinkability: Goes down very easily, especially on a hot summer day. Also, I feel like it's not as harsh as other Hefes. (424 characters)

A - Awesome looking stuff - exactly how a wheat beer should look. Big billowing blonde foam that eventually settles to about 2-3 fingers before slowly dissipating to a half-finger cap and leaves lots of sticky lacing.

S - Cloves, banana, wheat, pepper. Potent and lovely smelling stuff.

T - The taste is a little more subdued with mostly sweet malted wheat and banana flavors, and a bubble-gum finish. The clove and pepper seems to disappear, and there is a minimal aftertaste.

M - Lively carbonation, medium body, creamy texture, clean finish.

D - Super drinkable with a great clean taste - definite summer beer. (619 characters)

I've been meaning to review this one for a little while now, just grabbed my only bottle out of the cellar. So lets see what he have.

Look: Very deep and thick shades of brown, amber, orange, and yellow with a big billowy head that looks like a sudsy cloud. Very pleasant looking

Aroma: Very spicy aroma, cloves and coriander predominantly with a floral presence and a hint of bananas. Not bad overall

Taste: Slightly tart and spicy flavor at first hops and cloves make themselves known right away but they don't showboat. The spiciness then slips into a light and laid back nutty bread like malt characteristic, and it does taste like banana bread to an extent and it also exhibits a slight taste of ginger. Pleasant flavor all in all

Mouthfeel: Smooth clean and crisp with a slight tingling on the tongue throughout. Very Well don on the feel, I'm tempted to give it a 5 but its not quite there for me.

Drinkability: Extremely drinkable! Its smooth, light in the mouthfeel, very refreshing, and is great as a summer cool off. The 2 deterrents for me were the slight sour taste and the tingling on the tongue. Other than those drinkability was perfect.

Quite a good beer all in all, I think I've come to realize though that even though I like Hefeweizens, they aren't a style that I'd drink regularly. Still a very good beer all in all though, full of flavor and a nice example of a good German Hefeweizen. (1,415 characters)

A: pores a wonderful dark color for this style, as it should as the original or standard for this style, everything else is to pale. Nice haze also.
S: Normal notes for the style but no Banana!
T: Wonderful, again no Banana! Is what I don't like about this style and this have none of it? This beer has big bold Wheat yeast and fruity flavors.
M: Vary crisp but not at all to dry.
D: This could go down easy especially if it by the L. and it was in a beer garden on a hot day. (476 characters)

I thoroughly enjoyed this Hef. I am a big fan of this German type of beer, and it is my most sought after beer. Bought this at BevMo and brought it home, frigged it for a bit, then drank with a nice size lemon slice. I would definitely recommned this one for a warm summer day, or even after a long day at work. The citrus flavors that burst out of this beer are amazing and cannot be passed up. If you life Hefe's you must try this one! (437 characters)

This may be the best tasting hefeweizen that i have had in america.
I have had many hefes in germany that i liked better than this one, but here in america nothing has beat it.

It pours a bit darker than expected. almost like a dunkel but a few shades lighter.

you defenately pick up the banana and clove in the aroma.

You pick up the banana and clove in the taste as well.
