Poured into a weizen glass.

A-Poured a thick, white, 2 finger foamy head. The color is brassy amber with the classic weizen cloudiness. The lacy sides never stopped.

S-Earthy, cloves, spice, lemon zest, and yeasty wheat. It was nicely balanced.

T-Sweet malt, lemon, cloves, pepper, fruit and vanilla spice.

M-Light and refreshing with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall-A great hefeweizen for all occasions. I have tried many hefe's and this one is the best. Just perfect for its style and well-balanced.

Schneiderweisse hefeweizen

A - Pours a hazy deep golden color. Full and froathy light off white foam on top. Fizzles out not long after.

S - classic hefeweizen characteristics. Banana and clove dominate but there is a much stronger malt base which sets it apart. Dark bread and hints of vanilla round out the nose.

T - bready malty flavors up front but the fruit esters enter quickly as well. The flavors of the tropical fruit and sweet bread meld into banana bread. Phenols come out more mid palate with clove and pepper along with what seems like some earthy hop presence for balance.

M - medium bodied with very high champagne like carbonation.

O - a benchmark of the style. Incredibly flavorful and a wonderful companion to dozens of foods.

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.

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.
