look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Light orange (before and after swirl) with a lively white head. Classic spicy clove and banana-ish aroma. MOre spicy than fruity but a decent balance and a nice tart finish. Medium bodied (leans light due to carbonation) and creamy.

Very solid ! Probably my 2nd favorite Hefe after Weihenstephen.

[16.9 oz bottle for $2.99] A bit pricey but worth it !

pours out a very dark, somewhat clouded, copperish color with a very generous pillowy head that sticks. the addition of the ample yeast sediment turns it a murky swamp brown. but fear not, while without the yeast it is a tasty and refreshing wheat beer...the adding of the yeast multiplies the flavors and complexities in the nose and tongue. it smooths out the full mouthfeel, and provides a unique spicy aspect above and beyond the token clove and banana and other faint fruit flavors. smoke, wood, tobacco, and nutmeg are ones that come to mind. i could sit here all day and night admiring this brew. very nice!

Hefe-Weizen. This beer has all the typical characteristics of such a beer, so if you like the style, you'll like this. Low in calories and fizzy with a 5.4% alcohol level. Goes great with food

Cheers

This hefeweizen passed the ultimate quality test - when you suddenly realize your glass is empty and wonder where the beer went, then you vaguely recall drinking it in a semi-catatonic state of bliss. Poured much darker than most hefes - and the aroma was packed with yeasty aromas. Tingly and bright in the mouth, with loads of yeasty spices - cloves, nutmeg, anise - any more spice and it could pass for a spiced winter warmer. At the same time, the spices were well moderated and did not go over the top or become tiresome. I normally think of hefeweizens as a summer beer, but this one is going in my fireside lineup.

Tawny, murky liquid. Aromas of clove, cinnamon, birch, sawgrass, plantain and ebony. Exotic...complex. The tightly fizzy, dense, smooth texture gives in to lingual pressure to slowly unfold a mysterious package of antique treasures. Old brass, pressed flowers, Madagascar spices, diesel. A deep, soulful, yet never heavy Hefeweizen.

This Original Weisse poured a lot darker than I expected: a brownish-tan color, cloudy with the yeasties poured in. A creamy, fine head was produced, though it diminished quickly, with a small amount of lace. Very pleasant nose - lots of banana and clove, with yeasty-spiciness thrown in also. Body was not disappointing, and there was a touch of carbonation (typical of the style imo) on the tongue. Nice combo of flavors hit the palate: the aforementioned banana/clove/spiciness, as well as some malt, and a nice fruity, tart lasting finish. A real thirst-quencher on a warm, summer-like day! Zum Wohl!!

Pours a hazy light brown/dark tan with a thick creamy off white head. Definite vanilla and some banana in the nose. Wheat flavors from the start but they are then overpowered by the the banana and vanilla flavors, light clove flavors throughout. Nice fullbodied yeastiness and very drinkable. A very nice brew. Yet another good hefe. I have yet to drink a german hefe that I didn't like. I don't know if only the good ones make it over here or what but they all seem to be real good. Great for a nice hot day like today.

The head is initially huge, very frothy, white in color, mostly lasting. Body is hazy copper/yellow, Light to medium body, watery texture, and decent carbonation. Nice aroma with notes of banana and cloves. The same can be found in the taste; the finish is moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Overall a enjoyable brew.

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.

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.

To me this is what a german Hefe is all about. The spicy clove like flavor and aroma. The fruity / banana thing going on. Good wheatyness and sour ending make this one fine weizen. Some may say that the phenols and the esters are too much but not this reviewer. If you don't like the spicyness move to a Frazikaner or an Oberdorfer.

One of the best Bavarian Hefe Weizen beers available in the US. Best served in a proper glass, followed by a moment of sheer admiration at its beauty, then drunk. No need for lemon.

4.35/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 500 ml (16.9 oz) slender brown bottle with info about the beer on the back label, no freshness date. Bottle fermented.

Appearance: Cloudy amber brown with a thick pillowy off white head that stays for the duration from a semi vigorous pour and then swirling the yeast in at the end.

Smell: Fruity mix of pear, peach and mandarin orange in the nose, soft spicy clove and alcoholic esters noticeable also.

Taste: Bubbly champagne like carbonation though a medium body and a full malty palate flexes for a smooth and crisp mouth feel. Big spicy splash of clove as soon as the effervescent carbonation hits. Phantom like hop bitterness that is barely there is buried among the wound up flavours. Fruity all over going from pear to mandarin orange to peach, faint medicinal flavour from the phenols also kicks in. Obvious alcoholic esters present with a sweet spiciness. Healthy twang from the wheat malt and ample sweetness to, a mild sweet bread flavour and a semi dry grainy finish.

Notes: Quite a thrilling brew, noted as the “Original German Hefe-Weizen”. Perhaps that is why it is darker in colour than most hefeweizens. Hearty and packed with character and able to cleanse the palate of most any robust cuisine. My choice was obvious, knockwurst and sauerkraut with spicy mustard.
