A nice, classic bottle fermented and aged Hefeweizen. Although i drank it early (I believe it was dated 10/30/06 and I drank it around 1/27/06), I was still impressed. I had many American Hefeweizens/wheat but wanted to get my hands on a real good German Hefeweizen to see what it was all about. Schneider-Weisse did not let me down. It poured a nice, dark gold/amber color with a quarter inch, off-white head with decent retention. It reduced a little bit, but a little swirl to release some of the aromas brought it back. The smell was magnificent with the fruits and banana esters rising to the occassion. At first, a slightly bland, seltzer taste, but I believe that was just me because after that first "coating" of my tongue, the greatness of what was the German Hefeweizen let me know that this beer was uber. A pretty thick mouthfeel; not too overwhelming but you knew you were drinking beer. Overall, a very refreshing beer and I believe that the fact that it was not that aged played a factor into the overall beerness (unfortunately, I saw the date after I opened it). Still, a great beer and highly reccommended.

A: Cloudy, but thinner in color than I would expect for a Hefeweizen. But the rear label also classifies it as a Weizenvollbier. Orange yet slightly brown in color. Beautiful inch and a half head. I forgot to mix this one well and I see faintly what looks like slightly darker than the beer color, food coloring drop patterns floating in the middle.

S: Sweet cooked banana yeast. The most banana-y hefeweizen I've smelled.

T: Besides banana, there's an unplaceable mild fruity sweetness. A tinge tart. Alcohol is present in the aftertaste, which is surprising for the ABV.

M: Medium body, with very mild micro carbonation. Smooth.

D: Very good beer. I only wish it was a hair sweeter.

A very good and inspiring brew, this bier poured out of the 500ml bottle a great, hazy color. The head left on the top was quite apparent, and left a great lace as I consumed this fine craft brew. Notes of wheat, sure. And damn fine notes. Something slightly sweet and roasted at the same time. Appealing to me, which is a surprise, considering the fact that I am just getting into Hefeweizens. Still, if you are lucky enough to get your hands on this brew, by all means do so.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance- Dark brown, murky and cloudy, nice thin white head, no bubbles to be seen, looks like alot going on

Smell- Wheat, yeast, lots of doughy ness, fresh odors of lemon and citrus

Taste- Lemon citrus up front and lots of fresh delicous wheat flavors, tangy fruits hit the tongue, balanced with some definite malt sweetness and slight touch of hop bitterness, a very refreshing sweet yet slight tangy blend

Mouth- light and quafible, carbonation can be felt as if goes down,

Drinkability- incredibly great wheat and was not disappointed again by schneider, so refreshingly crisp and pure, freshness resinates through the beer, very complex yet simply put refreshing as possible, cant wait to enjoy one on a very hot summer day

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.

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.
