Served in a pint glass, poured from a pint bottle. amazingly, the whole pint fit in the pint glass. I would have never guessed.

A - hazy brown amber, far darker than the average hefe. Head is thin and leaves very loose lacing.

S - Very faint alcohol detected in the nose.Other than that, it's nice and lemony. Fairly standard nose of wheat, banana, bubblegum, and spice

T - Slight honeyed taste gives a unique note to this hefe. citrus and wheat are the predominant characters once again. It's a drier taste than other hefes, with a lot less sweet character. Very faint bitterness on the finish is the only bitter flavor i get.

M - Actually pretty full bodied. Very smooth and very carbonated.

D - As with most hefes, this one's really easy drinking, if not a tad filling.

Overall - Not my favorite. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfectly fine hefe, and you can't go wrong with it, but it lacks a lot of the full flavor and heady, sweet aroma that others of this style flaunt shamelessly. Now to go track down some Aventinus.

I'm not going to get into all the details of beer advising. I'm only going to say that this beer makes me thing of the modern traditional German song, ""Im Himmel gibt's kein Bier" (i.e., "In Heaven, There is No Beer".) There is no better Weissbeer, period. I'd drink more of it, but it's hard to justify paying 3.5 USD for a 1/2 L when unemployed, even when it's this good.

Darker than I would have expected for a hefeweizen, and I poured it into the wrong glass. But a nice wheat beer.

T: Banana bread, lightly toasted bread, toffee, floury, slight spice notes
F: Medium body, rich, luscious mouthfeel, fairly well carbonated, slightly sweet finish
O: World class hefeweizen! A little on the malty side, but a great balance of banana and clove/spice.

This pours an orange color with a fairly thick, white head and a high amount of carbonation. The scent is fairly sharp with wheat and banana notes. There are some fairly strong wheat malt flavors with banana and a little clove. Despite this the finish is actually quite light if a little astringent and dry. Overall I would say the body is on the light end of medium, but most of that is in the initial taste and the finish is for sure light. Schneiderweisse in my opinion is kind of a mixed bag. It has some beers that I really love like Tap 1 and 6, but also some that I really didn’t like such as Edel-weisse. I think this is a pretty nice summer beer if you want to drink a hefe, but don’t want to feel full. That being said, it is closer to the lower end of the Schneiderweisse spectrum in my opinion. The negatives are for the most part the same as Edel-weisse, but not as pronounced. It is still a solid beer.

To me one of the more unique looking hefe-weizens out there,pours a gold color with a real nice reddish tint.A small to medium head with aromas of cloves and yeast being the tmost prominent.The taste is orange-like and some cloves a real nice summer quaffer.A unique beer for the style.

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

Appearance: 500ml bottle. Poured a murkey brown/orange with large foamy head. The head didn't last as long as i thought it might (or as long as i remembered it to).

Smell: Fruity and light. Good spiciness going on here but not as much banana as i thought there would be. A little yeast detection and a hint of bubblegum sweetness.

Taste: Much more banana once on the palate. What starts spicey and earth-like turns into fruity banana and a light citrus with bubblegum chewiness and sweetness. Not as rich and full bodied as i would have liked.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and light off the top. Bubbly and dry towards the finish. An easier drinker.

Drinkablilty. Great for a summers day. There are other great hefeweizens i prefer (Dennison's) but this is a decent example of the style.

Appearance – This is really dark for a Hefe Weizen. The head fit the bill though. It rose up easily and never quite did go down.

Smell – There’s the typical sharp yeast flavor, but it’s a little on the toasted side, which is strange. Other than that, it has the usual light fruity profile led by bananas.

Taste – This is part dunkel, part hefe. The nice yeast is there but, again, it’s a little on the toasty side. The banana-dominated fruit is right on the mark.

Mouthfeel – Light but foamy in accordance with the style.

Drinkable – This went down like a good weizen. It wasn’t what I expected, though.

The 'Tap 7' variety, is not a patch on the 'Tap 6' variety. Similar in looks, chestnut grey and cloudy. Thinner, with a harder and rather spear-like on the palette tinniness (in comparison, between the two).

This one cost me e0.95 from the local specialist beer shop; the #6 was e1.19.The e0.24 premium is very well spent is my advice!

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #80 (Sep 2013):

A classic is what we have here, so easy to knock back. Not your typical contemporary Hefeweizen. as it dons a slightly darker color. Bold but very approachable, and don’t you dare think about garnishing this brew with any kind of citrus.

STYLE: Hefeweizen
ABV: 5.4%

LOOK: Hazed brassy hue, amazing head

SMELL: Ripe banana, bready, taffy, nutty yeast, lemon pith, dried grass, mild clove, fallen apples

TASTE: Perfect crispness, moderate-sized body, loaf of bread, estery, peppery, banana taffy, grainy, yeast, apple skin, spicy clove, kiss of alcohol warmth, drying finish

Purchased from Otto's Wooden Cask in Brown Deer, WI. Pours a bright dark gold body with a bright white head. Aroma is loaded with fruity esters, banana peel and clove. Medium bodied with a smooth wheat malt flavor, crisp carbonation and a clean, dry finish. Superb drinkability.

Dark golden brown with a thick frothy head. pretty thick lacing.

Bananas and cloves with a pinch of spice.

First sweet lemons and then light banana cloves. quite malty, with a bready finish.

nice full body and the right amount of carbonation.

pretty filling beer.

This beer does not pack the same punch that its bavarian counterparts do. It is pleasant but its character is lacking something to impress. I do like that malty aspect though.
