Bottle served into Schneider Weisse pint glass in Berlin, Germany. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a standard blonde. Head is five fingers of mild cream.

Sm: Fresh, creamy, malty, and yeasty.

T: Some cream on the open. Barley and yeast comprise the body. An empty lackluster finish. It's actually a bit watery.

Mf: Too smooth, too wet, too watery.

Dr: Decent quality and decently priced, but shite compared to other similar offerings.

Cloudy, rusty golden in color, with a sizeable and fine head of white bubbles. No lace.

Smell is citrus, bubblegum, and clove. Typical, and inviting.

Taste is sweet at first. I get wheat, a hint of orange peel, and some clove for spice. Couldn't ask for more, or better.

You'd expect a Bavarian hefe to be as good as it gets, and this one doesn't disappoint. Right there next to Weihenstephaner, in my book.

Poured from tap at Prost Portland into Schneider branded hefeweizen glass.

Pours with about as gorgeous a head as one could ask for. About 2 inches of magical froth fades to a thick white lace. Hazy straw hue. Perfect.

The most amazing thing about this hefe is the nose. Unlike many others, this one has a LOT going on. The aromas are nicely delineated with banana and clove dominating up front. After a moment one finds the Belgian style yeast and bread note framed by a mild straw aroma with pepper and a hint of anise. I'm content to sit at the bar like a freak with my nose in the glass getting a foamy nose tip!

Flavors are nice and welcoming with yeast dominating. There is more fruit on the palate and a hint of spice and straw all coming together. Good palate, but the nose was much more impressive.

Body is light but the texture is good. Great balance of alcohol, acid, and malts. Finishes with a medium intense finish focused mostly on malt and yeast.

Overall one of the big three of the German hefeweizens (along with Weihenstephaner and Franziskaner) and deserving of being ranked up towards the top with those brews!

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!

500ml bottle

A- Light orange, with some gold hints, very little haziness if compared to other Hefes. Head is white, dense and foamy with very small bubbles

S- Quite subdued and not complex at all. Yeast is there with some spicy clove notes in the back

T- Classic bready malts, maybe not as dominant as in other Weizens. There is a vague fruity sweetness that may be felt on the back of the palate, though the main role is played by clove, which creates a strong spicy feel (with maybe some plain alcohol notes in the mix). Spiciness never gets too dominant, but the taste lacks complexity and gets boring after a while. I'm getting no banana, which is quite surprising

M- Very smooth on both tongue and palate despite it's spiciness; the beer has low, though in my opinion proper, carbonation

O- Good drinkabilty, though it gets a bit heavy on the stomach after some time. Alcohol is quite too much detectable given the ABV. Overall this is quite similar to their Weisse Original, though it somehow lacks it's depht and complexity.

A Weizen that is worth a try; quite below Schneider standars though
