Bottled On: 061216

Poured into a Squatters true pint glass a pretty nice dark brownish color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy two-finger off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some really nice banana, clove, wheaty/grassy, nutmeg, spicy. The taste is really nice, malty, yeasty, with some very nice banana, clove, wheaty/grassy, very nice touch of nutmeg, spicyness. Medium body, ABV hidden very well. Overall, a very tasty brew. True to style.

Pours a cloudy light copper with a nice solid head that leaves lacing. Nose is pretty classic, but I also get apples. Taste is smooth with the same classic esters and some of that apple as well. Honestly, I'm not sure why this isn't rated quite as high as some of the other top hefeweizens. I really enjoyed it.

Look - Pours a hazy copper color, three fingers of pillowy white head, excellent retention, some lacing.
Aroma - Banana, raw oats, small amount of spice, a little lemon.
Taste - Multi grain bread, pale malt sweetness, not quite ripe banana, nutty yeast, light clove. Finishes slightly tart with lingering grain notes.
Feel - Medium bodied, full and fluffy carbonation, dry.

Overall - Great beer.

Darker body than most Hefeweizens withreally nice bubbly bright white head, thins out to about half a finger in the pint glass. Smells of wheat, yeast, and a subtle banana bread scent. Taste is nice! still retains that banana flavor and finishes with a small hint of spice accentuated from the carbonation - this might be cloves? The feel is nice too, pretty lasting flavor that sits on the tongue and medium to low carbonation level. Certainly a pleasure to drink a hefe that doesn't rely on lemon and citrus zest to carry the brew.

Quite a bit darker than many Hefeweizens. Big, pillowy, white head. Typical banana aroma dominates with the supporting malt giving it a banana bread feel, without much hint of cloves. Banana and light lemon in the taste, with a wisp of spiciness at the end. Not quite as creamy as could be. Overall, very nice.

Poured to a hefeweizen Erdinger branded glass.

A: The body is coppery and hazy. The head is white.
S: The aroma is clovy and banana-y. Close to a regular Hefe.
T: The taste starts with a mildly sweet profile of banana, changing right after to a mildly hoppy and yeasty end of bitterness.
M: Body is medium to low. Carbonation is medium high and a bit harsh. Bitterness is more expressive than regular hefes.
O: A first Schneider. Was expecting more.

Hazy really nice looking brew. I get clove on the top with some banana and a wheat edge. Scent translates well to the flavor with banana and clove and a sweetish finish. Bigger flavor than you get from many wheat beers and a very smooth feel. Decently carbonated(burp). At the top of this style that I've tried so far.

Picked up a couple of these today and sent them to the fridge immediately. Smell is almost like a subdued banana bread scent. Taste is very good, quite complex-- mostly bananas, cloves, and hops for the finish. Feel is thirst quenching, clean, not overcarbonated, and not dry. This is one refreshing beer I would love to get again.

Schneider and Sohn has several good varieties of Weisse beer and I am yet to be disappointed by any of them. This original Hefe is comparable to the best German makes like Paulaner, Weihenstephan, Fransikaner, Hacker-Pschorr, etc. Pick one up and give it a try, you may like it better than the previous mentioned hefe beers.
