look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Cloudy and opaque yellow orange with a ton of sediment that sinks to the bottom. Fluffy white head that laces well. Smells like sweet grain, banana, and spice. Tastes similar with subdued banana, and almost drinks like a hefty pilsner thanks to a nice biscuit like presence. Well carbonated, medium feel, and a touch of spicy bitterness make this a wonderful Weisse beer to e njiy year round. Prost!

Poured into pint glass. The color is a hazy-golden with a two-finger, bright white head and lacing that lasted throughout the glass. Typical weisse smells: wheat, cloves, yeast, banana, and other spices. Delightful taste of pepper, lemon zest, wheat, cloves, and bready malt, with a tart, slightly bitter finish. Nicely carbonated and very smooth - almost creamy. This is a terrific hefeweizen.

Love it. Tap 7 is still my favorite but this one is sure up there. Great color. Another great hefeweizen out of Germany.

Absolutely delicious; nicely balanced flavors of clove and banana with a malty, bready backbone. Just the right amount of carbonation. Drink it if you can find it!

I hadn't seen this beer before and I wasn't exactly sure what type "Edel-Weisse" was but then I realized that it is just Schneider-Wiesen's Hefe I knew I couldn't go wrong.

A - Opaque, bright orange. Full white head that doesn't subside quickly. Very good lacing.

S - Malt is first and then the wheat, grain, clove, and vanilla. It is a very pleasant and not overpowering beer.

T - Again like the smell there is a sweet malt character on the front accompanied by more complex flavors. There is a phenolic clove flavor, wheat bread, vanilla, and some other fruity esters to round it out. Some sweetness with the spiciness but almost no bitterness. Flavors cover the light hop bitterness.

M - Lighter mouth-feel. Moderate carbonation. light body make this brew refreshing and flavorful summer brew.

Overall, this is a very good example of the style. It does have more flavor and balance than many of the hefe's out there but it isn't the best ever. I would recommend this one if you like the style or as a good introduction of the style but I would stick with Weihenstephaner for my $.

Glass- Wheat glass

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

Poured into a cold glass 12oz beer mug.

Appearance: A beautiful creamy look to it with excellent thick head retention and a color like a strawberry blond. I appreciate its cloudy look

Smell: Sourdough with a yeasty feel to it. Very smooth and just a slight hop note which is a little spicy and flowery.

Taste: You can definitely taste the cascade hops here which is a taste I don't usually get with many german beers but it really works to give the beer a peppery zesty flavor that I like with some piney aftertaste. It tastes more bitter than most german wheat beers I've tried and I really enjoy it. There is a moderate alcohol taste but its not overwhelming and plays with the yeast and hop character. Sourdough comes to mind as does a subtle ryebread (I know there is no rye involved here but thats what I taste)

Mouthfeel: Full and creamy but it also dries out my mouth similar to a dry cider.

Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot and I'm fairly picky about my wheats. I liked the addition of the cascade hops which gave it a kind of APA taste to it however they seemed to dominate so much that it seems to be a cross between a pale ale and a hefeweizen and I did not think the aftertaste of the sourdough went well with the piney aftertaste. Overall a good beer though
