look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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O - Maybe an unfair review given it's out-of-date but still very drinkable.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.

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!

"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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.

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.

This beer poured a very nice looking amber color with a big thick white head that dissipated within a few moments. The lacing on this beer is worth mentioning also as it was damn near perfect. Smell was of light fruits like pear, apple and peach. There was also a sort of medicinal aspiriny aroma that gave it a bit of a musty smell. Taste was pretty close to the smell, starting off with the aspirin taste and then finishing up with the fruit. Mouthfeel was really good...usually when I taste a Hefeweizen there isnt much hop presence, but it was certainly in this beer. Low alcohol content makes this a beer that one could drink for a while, which is nice for when your drinking for flavor rather then the effects. This is a really nice offering and one that I am delighted to have found over here in Australia. I'll definetly be picking some more up in the future whether it be here or back in Boston.

A: Carbonation is prominent. Darker than most Hefes. Has a dirty brownish-yellow tint. No head at all on this one.
S: A fragrant bouquet of honey and clove.
T&M: It's very light and clean, with a slight spike and then it goes mellow again.
D: I like this one and will come back to this beauty again.

Had this at the brewhouse in Munich. Served in a hefe glass cool.

A-bright orange (almost sex-on-the-beach body) and a thick white head.

S-strong clove, spice and bubblegum aroma

T-bubblegum is pronounced, wet, cereal and lemon flavors

M-light

D-great on tap at the brewhouse in Munich (despite some rude service) and complex without being to headspinning. I would drink this beer again.

I definitely enjoyed this beer from start to finish. Poured a cloudy, golden brown after the yeast came into the mix. Massive head that remained for a good time. Excellent, somewhat toned down smell with some sort of fruit and a bready aroma. The taste reminds me of a spotted banana, my favorite, as the wheat does well to keep it from being too much. Ideal mouthfeel for a hefe and as drinkable as they come. Of the limited number of hefes I've been able to find, this one ranks among the leaders.

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.
