On-tap served in a Schneider weizen glass at The Witch, Bangkok.
The liquid is hazy with a shiny yellow color and a tinge of orange. The white head crowns thickly by comprising plenty of sudsy foam clinging before gradually subsiding to thin layer of lacing. Medium carbonation pushes many bubbles to rise constantly by mid-tempo towards the top.
So mellow by good combination of banana ester, fresh floral fragrance and prominent malty trait, malt is a big boy in here by covering throughout the smelling sensation while clove imparts a touch of spice to unite.
The taste is rich, mellow yet balanced. Wheat and sweet malt pave the way to welcome fruity ester glistering by banana and citrus. Spice is also there to bring some balance to that fruity sweet. Hop is hidden in but ready to flash with some ghost-like bitterness.
Medium-bodied with silky smooth mouth feel from its lively carbonation that also yields purely refreshing touch through the palate, finish is dry.
This is just great Hefeweizen and nothing more to describe, my one of the favorites in weizen line.

Pours very cloudy and brown with some gold color. The cask version skips a highlight of this on regular tap or bottle - the almost champagne like bubbles. Smells of citrus - especially orange and some lemon. Excellent hefeweizen taste with orange present again and a refreshing overall flavor.

Magnificent cloudy orange-amber body with perfect white head, leaving thick laces. Banana flavour, clove hints. Invigorating taste of bananas & mild malt, rather sweet and smooth. The fact I haven't found too many facets of the taste slightly upsets me. Fruity aftertaste, without lollipop harshness.

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.

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.

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.

APPEARANCE: Beautiful cloudy straw colour. Ever so slightly dark. Head uncharacteristically modest for a Schneider Weisse.
SMELL: I can smell banana a mile off. Tangy wheat. Touch of charcoal as well.
TASTE: Crickey, where's the flavour? It's dry, tart and watery. No sweetness whatsoever. Some spectacular stuff going on at the back, like marzipan and fruit salad, and subtle cloves, but literally the most pallid upfront flavour I've ever had from a beer. I'm slightly parched and more receptive than normal, and yet my tongue is begging for flavour. Pouring in some gunk from the bottom of the bottle I'm getting some beautiful clove tones, but what's the point if there's nothing to compliment them.
OVERALL: Very surprised and disappointed. Some really fantastic, complex stuff going on in the background but virtually no upfront flavour, just a slightly sour, fizzy straw flavour. Really weird beer from an otherwise world class range of beers.

A - one finger of foamy white head tops a bright amber body, lively with effervescence.
S - Beautiful hefe pungency, banana, coriander, clove, yeast with some stale mustiness.
T - Sweet caramelized banana, lots of wheat and coriander.
M - Slightly thinner than the top hefes, moderate to highly carbonated.
O - Another top tier German hefeweizen. Beautiful sessioner.
