Caramel yellow pour, little head.

Smells of banana, hope and spice. A little bitterness but it's refreshing. Sort of blankets and soothes the tongue. It's on the thinner side but not enough to take away from it. It's a simple, wheaty beer. Good for fans of the style since it does it so well.

500ml bottle into 0.5L Franziskaner weizen glass. Crazy amount of foam -- took a while to pour, but the foam eventually reduces down to a 1 finger head that sticks around a while even after pouring the yeasty sediment through it. Dull hazy dark amber color, somewhat darker than I expected.

Aroma of wheat and malt plus banana, clove, and slight bubblegum? Taste opens up with a bit of sour lemon, cloves, and banana and yields to a fresh yeasty pretzel bread and light maltiness. Slightly salty earthiness peeks in maybe from the yeast?

Carbonation is too low, and this finishes too wet. Hops only maybe expressed in the initial citrus tang, almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavier than I expected for a hefeweizen.

Tastes a little bland; it's got a nice bunch of flavors working in there, but not strong enough and the bready wheat and malt are not as assertive or deep as I would prefer. Drinkability is a bit "ehhh" since I was underwhelmed by the taste... maybe this bottle was a little old?

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.

Serving: Bottle in a 0,5l seidel

A - A murky golden colour with a white thin foamhead that quickly dissapears.

S - Wheat, Malt and a slight hint of citrus. Very faint smell all in all.

T - Wheat, Malt, citrus and a slight hint of banana. The wheat taste stays a while in the mouth after all the other tastes dissapears.

M - A thin body with pretty strong carbonation.

D -Very good drinkabillity.

Overall: A good beer but I prefer Schneiderweisse original over this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Opaque, toasty brown color. Not as light as many hefes.

Smell: Citrusy -- but not overwhelming. Slightly sweet. Malty. Overall a subtle aroma.

Taste: Now this takes me back to Germany! Has a real Hefe taste, without being too acidic or too strong. Sweet, citrusy, and even a little nutty.

Drinkability: Goes down very easily, especially on a hot summer day. Also, I feel like it's not as harsh as other Hefes.

A - Awesome looking stuff - exactly how a wheat beer should look. Big billowing blonde foam that eventually settles to about 2-3 fingers before slowly dissipating to a half-finger cap and leaves lots of sticky lacing.

S - Cloves, banana, wheat, pepper. Potent and lovely smelling stuff.

T - The taste is a little more subdued with mostly sweet malted wheat and banana flavors, and a bubble-gum finish. The clove and pepper seems to disappear, and there is a minimal aftertaste.

M - Lively carbonation, medium body, creamy texture, clean finish.

D - Super drinkable with a great clean taste - definite summer beer.

I've been meaning to review this one for a little while now, just grabbed my only bottle out of the cellar. So lets see what he have.

Look: Very deep and thick shades of brown, amber, orange, and yellow with a big billowy head that looks like a sudsy cloud. Very pleasant looking

Aroma: Very spicy aroma, cloves and coriander predominantly with a floral presence and a hint of bananas. Not bad overall

Taste: Slightly tart and spicy flavor at first hops and cloves make themselves known right away but they don't showboat. The spiciness then slips into a light and laid back nutty bread like malt characteristic, and it does taste like banana bread to an extent and it also exhibits a slight taste of ginger. Pleasant flavor all in all

Mouthfeel: Smooth clean and crisp with a slight tingling on the tongue throughout. Very Well don on the feel, I'm tempted to give it a 5 but its not quite there for me.

Drinkability: Extremely drinkable! Its smooth, light in the mouthfeel, very refreshing, and is great as a summer cool off. The 2 deterrents for me were the slight sour taste and the tingling on the tongue. Other than those drinkability was perfect.

Quite a good beer all in all, I think I've come to realize though that even though I like Hefeweizens, they aren't a style that I'd drink regularly. Still a very good beer all in all though, full of flavor and a nice example of a good German Hefeweizen.
