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

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.

I was thinking about hefe weizens earlier today. Why don't I drink more weissbiers? They taste good and I really like my hefe glasses, so I picked up a bottle of Schneider Weisse Weizenhell on my way home.

This brew looks a bit different than other hefe's, pouring a cloudy amber color with a good size head. It has nice aroma of bananas, vanilla, clove and yeast. Carbonation and a spicy bite highlight the mouthfeel. The taste? You get a healthy mix of everything above, most notably bananas, clove and yeasts, in this. I think I'll be needing to pick up a few more bottles of this stuff- hell, some weizenbocks, dunkels and kristals are also in order.

Cloves, bananas and yeast were most evident in the nose with a nice subtle sweetness. Poured a copper gold with a creamy white head that persisted quite nicely. Clove and banana in flavor with a nice sweetness and a very soft, but pleasant, tang. Very easily drinkable.

A - Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass. Pours amber, fairly darker than other hefeweizens, and with a foamy white head.

S - Malty, wheaty, yeasty, and with faint spices.

T - Akin to the aroma; trademark wheaty taste with more malt than some, fruity, citrus notes and spices.

M - Thinner than medium bodied, decent carbonation.

Notes - A prototypical hefe.

9 oz. Bottle. Poured in into it's own Schneider Weisse .5Ml glass.

Appearance: Beautiful amber/orange, almost dark enough for a dunkle for god-sake, nice looking beer, builds a strong head initially but then quickly dissipates to around a 1/4'", has excellent lacing.

Smell: Nice clove and banana as fits the style but also quite a bit of malt flavor.

Taste: Nice, unique for a Hefe, it has the givens as in banana etc. but they are all there behind a nice malty curtain. Really a great hefe to have "when you're having more than one".

Mouth feel: Highly carbonated but easy on the palate, very enjoyable.

Drinkability: Very drinkable, great cookout beer.

A really good Hefe, unique flavor profile. The price is the only issue as it's substantially more than Weihenstephaner and it's (almost but) not quite that great. Like I said, one to buy a few bottles of and appreciate from time-to-time as variety is truly the spice of life.

A- Cloudy golden/orange with 2 inch off white head that fades at a moderate pace to a lasting lace.

S- Very fruity (banana and pear seem to jump out) and also some nice yeasty notes.

T- Nice maltiness throughout the taste. Wonderful fruit flavors mixed in throughout (again banana and pear jump out at me). Nice level of spice. Twangy and grainy wheat finish.

M- Strong carbonation up front with a medium body. Would almost be creamy, but the wheat flavors make it crisp overall.

D- Nice levels of carbonation and good balance of flavors make this very refereshing and drinkable.

Overall, this is definitely one of the best tasting German wheat beers I've had. Worth trying.

Had this on an unusually warm April day at Cafe St.-Ex in the early evenning and it was perfect.

Appeared a cloudy, yellow-gold color with a white, bubble-laiden head that left behind some lacing. Moderate to high level of carbonation. Aromas of ripe bananas, cloves, and dried leaves. A very earthy taste that is complex in how the varying flavors of tropical fruit, cloves, and earth meld together. Crisp, refreshing, and dry with a nice level of sweetness, but bitter at the same time. Very enjoyable, but perhaps a bit too tart for me after a pint or two.

Serving type: on-tap
