The George Schneider Brewery is at it again. A long lost recipe from before WWII gone from fire and bombing has been rediscovered. A true Oktoberfest Weissbier but with a twist! Edelweiss. More on that later.

The initial aroma of this sublime brew is of rich and hearty wheat with a hint of deep malt. A wee bit of citrus is included. The pour is a dark amber color with an average 2 finger head when poured correctly. Give the glass a true German tap with a friend at the bottom, and magic begins before the first taste. The carbonation begins to set things in motion as the smell and appearance change very subtly and for good reason.

The taste is truly what is intriguing. Hints of an authentic German Heffeweissen with the usual fruits and wheat sensations and falling seamlessly into those wonderful Cascade and Hallertauer hop fragrances and aromatic feel. Then as the hops begin to settle on comes this flowery sensation with a tiny hint of mint. It's the Edelweiss. Yup Edelweiss. A white sacred flower of Bavaria and of Rogers and Hammerstein's song in the Sound of Music. This little flower does something magical to this bier that is very special. It gives the bier a taste that can not be explained. You must try for yourself and see. Simply remarkable!

If you're in for something that is truly a work of art by master artisans, look no further. This bier is very special folks, very special indeed. "Edelweiss ...bless my homeland forever!"

Oh by the way, its completely organic, brewed in Munich and is certified by both the CCOF and the USDA.

Enjoyed cellar temperature in my weizen glass.

A pint pour produces a huge three-finger white cloud of a head over a very cloudy honey-orange. Beautiful.

This has one of those aromas that just makes me swoon. An absolutely fragrant mix of bananas, vanilla, peaches, lemon zest, nutmeg, cloves, the tiniest hint of haughty cinnamon, and rich, sweet white bread dough.

The flavor fulfills the aroma's tease excellently, presenting a harmonized balance of the sweet and tart fruits, with the banana, lemon, and yeasty bread coming to a climax in the finish. And as the finish dries, the spices from the aroma are just able to be detected as well. Bliss.

Carbonation is medium to high, body is medium to full. A direct relationship which works well.

To me, this hefeweizen is unmatched in its style.

Awesome brew! Bananas, bubble gum, smooth, easy drinking, low IBU, USDA organic, and one of the best Hefes I've ever tasted!

This is the same beer as this one:

The one in this listing is the American market version and the link above is what it is called in Germany.

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!

Is this a new brew? I saw it at my local grocery and I've been trying to taste all of the Schneider beers lately, so I picked it up.

I'm a huge fan of some of Schneider's other selections, so take this review with a grain of salt.

The first thing that hits you is the awesome smell, it's just a wallop of wheat representative of the style.

It pours about a finger of head, nothing outrageous but the right amount.

The mouthfeel is substantial but not as thick as some other decadent wheats like Aventinus.

For taste, I might call it quite crisp, light and refreshing if not for the alcohol backbone, which is significant and works well. There's a good bitterness as well to balance the delicate wheat notes. Awesome.
