Served in a Devil's Backbone weizen glass.

Been a long time since I broke this glass out, but it's coming out of semi-retirement for a seasonal hef that I've never seen before. It pours a clear brass topped by a mountain of white foam. The nose comprises dry cracked wheat, mild banana, mild lemon peel, and a few pinches of clove here or there. The taste bursts with some banana- and clove-laden orange, with some wheat biscuits tossed into the fray toward the back end through the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a solid, if unremarkable hef. 'Nuff said.

Unfortunately, my bottle was many months past the "best by" date, so that needs to be considered. Erdinger Schneeweisse has a medium soapy, crackly, white head, a hazy, vigorously bubbly, hazy, orange appearance, which clouds up, once the caked bottom sediment is loosened and poured in. No lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, sweet & sour grain and bread crust. Taste is similar with a very low hop component. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Erdinger Schneeweisse finishes semi-dry and highly drinkable. Overall, this would be in the quality and flavor range of a Shock Top or Blue Moon.

On the label: "Best before end 08-2015" so it looks like I'm well before that date.

Appearance: Massive carbonation, huge thick white head under a slightly hazy straw yellow body with a waterfall of bubbles.

Aroma: There is a slightly spicy aroma and a slight metallic scent and a huge CO2 bite on the nose from all the carbonation.

Taste: The flavor of tangy wheat rolls onto the tongue at first, followed by a spicy hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: It is a very easy drinking beer. The body is light and there is a slight bitter presence in the beer.

Overall: It felt pretty average, lacking a lot of yeast character in the aroma and flavor that come from drinking a fresh Hefeweizen. For an import it stands up pretty well and is still enjoyable to drink.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch L071108. AROMA: faint fruity aroma reminiscent of clove, vanilla and banana mixed with wheat notes. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: light Orange color and a bit hazy. thin white head with poor retention. TASTE: dilluted wheat flavour with some fruity and vanilla notes. PALATE: medium-low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a slight more fruity weiss from Erdinger but nothing more.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Very hazy dark wheat color. Thick foamy tan head, good retention. Light lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, grains, faint banana.

Taste: Malt sweetness, wheat, grains.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: I like this. It's not a banana bomb, very clean and subtle.
