Haven't had this beer in many years -- back when it was imported to the U.S. by Merchant du Vin -- now imported by CMB Cincinnati and $9 a six-pack, very nice. Was good then, expecting no less today.

Not sure what sort of date code they use on this beer's 11.2 ounce bottles, but since it's a fairly new addition to the local beer store I shouldn't be *too* worried.

1-and-a-half bottles poured into my big-bowled Libbey Weizen glass.

A -- Cloudy tangerine-orange color with a dense and fluffy, off-white head that settles to a thin cap leaving sticky lacing.

S -- Spicy clove and light banana character with great wheat malt aroma coming thru.

T -- Flavors of spicy clove and light citrus balanced nicely with luscious wheat and bready barley malt. The clove and fruit esters from the Weizen yeast make up the backbone and finish of this beer with spiciness and mild citrus tartness lingering thru the aftertaste.

M -- Mouthfeel is soft and creamy up front to spritzy in the finish with a medium body.

O -- This is a very nice Weizen in the older style of Schneider's Original. Complex with a more robust body than other Weizens, yet still very satisfying and refreshing. It's good to see this beer available again, takes me back in time and back to Bavaria.
