Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider-Weisse weizen glass. Deducted half a point from the appearance for the pain in the arse head.

Pours a cloudy yellow/gold colour with a massive head.

Smells fresh, yeasty and malty.

Tastes of very light malts, balanced with delicate hops giving a slight lemony zing to it, creating possibly the most refreshing drink i've ever had. The mouthfeel adds to this, it's thinner than many hefeweizens but works well with the lighter taste.

An absolutely perfect (for me) hefeweizen.

From Leura. Oops!!!! BB 301306 :-(

A - golden blonde, less head than should be, no lace.

S - massive bananas, hint bubblegum. Clove, spice.

T - fair whack (technical term) of banana, add cloves, yeast, and aged semillon notes. Quite vinous, more so than expected. Almost some barrel notes as well.

M - let down - just bubbles in mouth really, fizzy.

O - Maybe an unfair review given it's out-of-date but still very drinkable. If only Australian brewers could do the same. Pales against Weihenstephan tho, especially in mouthfeel.

Poured from a .5L bottle to a hefe glass the liquid is a nice medium orange with good carbonation. The head is tall and white and leaves good lace.

The smell is very good, banana cloves and even a bit toasty.

The taste is great a really nice brew, lots of banana and cloves with a hint of a roasty flavor you normally get from the dunkles.

The mouthfeel is very good a nit thicker then medium and good carbonation.

The drinkability is good, I would get more of these for sure.

Prosit, MK

A decent Hefe though style of which I'm not overly fond. The look is a nice mid amber with a decent white head and some lacing. The nose is full of bananas and cloves and this follows suit in the flavor with the cloves definitely taking the upper hand. This finishes nicely crisp and clean, with a short lived aftertaste. Good drinkability, especially for fans of the style.

A - one finger of foamy white head tops a bright amber body, lively with effervescence.

S - Beautiful hefe pungency, banana, coriander, clove, yeast with some stale mustiness.

T - Sweet caramelized banana, lots of wheat and coriander.

M - Slightly thinner than the top hefes, moderate to highly carbonated.

O - Another top tier German hefeweizen. Beautiful sessioner.

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.

The very best Hefe-Weizen in the world. It poured a thick, hazy golden wheat color with a fair amount of foam and nice lace. The smell of wheat, malt and cloves was so mouth watering, that I couldn't wait to take my first sip. The taste was fantastic. It had it all. The taste of cloves and spices, with a hint of bananas mixed with wheat and malts were the most well balance Hefe-Weizen I've tasted. All this and a sweet feel your mouth with just enough tartness to balance out this perfect beer. Thumb's up to Schneider & Sohn. This is on top of my list for wheat beers!

This one slipped by me somehow over the years.

It pours with the typical out of control head but has a very clear body. Very deep gold in color.

Nose is citrus spice and bread.

Taste is very tart at first. Orange and citrus mix then there is a pretty strong malt finish. The taste profile is really good since there are so many phases to each sip.

Mouth feel is good as usual. Nice bite and a slightly slick feel.

Way drinkable.

"The Original Hefe-Weisse" comes in a half liter bottle, poured into my very own Schneider Weisse glass given to me by a very knowledgeable German beer fan. Opens with a gentle hiss and a slight gunsmoke. Pours a surprisingly dark color for a hefe-weisse (a light brown, rather than golden). I guess I am too used to the American wheat beers. Huge amounts of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass- a 3 1/2" head is trying to collapse, but no way with all these bubbles coming up. Quite pretty. Aroma is malty, grainy, but different than all-barley beers. I guess I am smelling wheatfields. Flavor is very nicely balanced- no strong flavors pop out over any others, but I detect slight citrus notes and a lot of breadiness. Overall very drinkable; nice and creamy.

Pours a dark golden amber color with a nice frothy white head that stays until the end (which wasn’t all that long for me with this beer). Nose is ripe banana, citrus, clove, vanilla, and nutmeg. Fine champagne-like carbonation is very crisp and refreshing in the mouth. Taste is quite fruity with a bit of spiciness and some bready notes and a semi-dry finish. Near infinite drinkability. This is an outstanding Hefe. Great for a warm Texas January afternoon!

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.
