Rust brown in color, full head that disappeared completely from my glass. Delicious aroma with hints of brown sugar and apples. First tastes of honey, cloves, bubble gum, apples, with a trace of white grapes in the finish. Refreshing and large, but not as complex as I was expecting. Some raw sugar cane/molasses but all in all pretty innocuous. The wheat lets it slide right over your tongue and down your throat. Terrific, soft, almost feathery mouthfeel. Despite being the original, it's not your stereotypical hefe, and for that I give it credit. It's a big beer but certainly not overwhelming, in fact it would do well with a bit more of a kick.

This beer is darker than I expected, it is a caramel, brownish apple cider color. The head started well, big and thick then it disappeared quickly. The aroma was a mixture of sweet, yeast, clove, and banana (not all that strong though). The flavor is very straightforward with the delivery of banana, yeast, cloves and an extra zip & fizz. It tastes less complicated than that though. The taste is very good, especially for a one (big) punch beer. This beer is a tad “worse” than others I have had in its style… a good beer nevertheless and I’d drink it again.

heavier and darker in appearance and taste than the belgian weisses (Hoegaarden), this beer poured out of the 375mL bottle with a large amount of light head. the colour is a murky orange-gold. the head is mostly white but retains some of the beer's colour. The taste is quite strong, but smooth. Hints of some spicyness lend greatly to the effect of the beer.
I'm looking forward to finding this on tap somewhere when I go back to school in the fall.

This beer has an appropriate murky-yeast appearance, with a huge, puffy head. I expected a yeasty, estery aroma, and was a little disappointed. The smell is kind of thin. The taste is distinctly wheat, but seemed kind of muted compared to other beers of this style. Not a bad beer, but not great either.

Hazy yellow brown, great head of an inch of soft froth. Very yeasty aroma, similar to uncooked pizza dough. Smooth and sweet honey-like flavor, touch of ester, slight lemon astringency at the finish. Quite mild and one of the nicer Hefes to me (not a major fan of the style). Not in a class with the Wheat Doppelbock, but then its not supposed to be. The brew is drinkable.

Hazy, bubbly, orange amber in hue, topped by a typically luscious off - white mountainous & dense head. Grainy wheat tartness, clove w/ subdued banana esters in aroma. A mellow graininess & tartness is perceptible upfront, then is followed by light clove flavors & citrusy notes. Banana esters are surprisingly mild and understated. The mouthfeel is smooth, w/ a proteinaceous quality from the wheat, while overll body is moderate & pleasant. The finish is lightly sweet, fruity and clean. Although not as complex as other Hefeweizens due to its relatively low ester level, the cleanliness, balance & mellow overall flavor profile lend Schneider Weisse good drinkability.

Darker than the usual weissebier, big aroma of banana bread and hints of yeast and clove. Phenolic character is expressive with clove and a slight medicinal flavour that cuts right through the wheat. This same phenolic character keeps its bite right to the end.

Unusual caramel color. Unfiltered. Clovey, banana scent. Pours with huge head. Spicy sweet flavor. Low hop level. Light, not necessarily refreshing. Deceptively light body

Very tasty wheat beer, hints of bubblegum, wheat, banana and cloves, and nice and refreshing, not the best german wheat available, but very pleasant and tasty.

Appearance - Nice creamy head that hangs around for a long while. Nice orangy color, darker than a lot of the other wheat beers I've had. The mouthfeel is surprisingly creamy. I was actually impressed by it. The flavor has lemon notes even without a lemon squeezed in. This is actually the first beer where I've actually tasted bubble gum, but I did. Until last night I thought everyone was making up the bubble gum flavor in beer. It was also fairly sweet. It may be a little too sweet, but it was drinkable.
