Bought in the 500ml Euro-style brown bottle "The Original German Hefe-Weizen"
This beer has a darker appearance than most hefe I have had the great pleasure of tasteing''almost an amber colour beneath the haze..a great frothy ever so slightly off white head which dissapates to a small but persistent head.
The smell is very nice fresh wheat bread mingles with bubble gum and some tropical fruits...nicely done.
Ah great taste again i taste the wheat bread and the bananas,,the bubble gum is less present..nice malty finish..after a while a small amount of hoppiness appears but not much.
Feels creamy smooth in the mouth but does tingle the taste buds..excellent.
Very very drinkable I could get drunk on this beer very easily.
All in all an excellent Hefe-Weissen among the best I have no doubt.

This may be the best Weizen in the world, as I said may be. As tasted in Germany in Nurnberg, it is cloudy and sweet very refreshing highly carbonated, and a great thirst quencher. The appearance is amazing as is the taste of citrus and slight bubble gum, very smooth and delicious.

The color here is not what the average beer drinker expects a hefe to have, but this is the Bavarian style. A muddy dark orangish, nearly brown near the crown, lighter at the foot. The head on it is full,lush,voluminous, white. Aroma is light, sweet, soft, delicious, delightful, focusing on flavors of citrus (lemon), honey, flowers, and mild spices. Texture and mouthfeel is extraordinarily smooth, with a graininess up front that fades fast.
Clean, brisk, uncomplicated, easily drunk, and yet brimming with taste. Substantial body, perfect malt, and a swift, but recurring, bright and lively finish. Citrusy hops return again and again to delight the tastebuds.
A very flavorful weizen, and a perfect brew for mealtime, hot Julytime, feellikehavinganotherbeertime.

Afternoons are perfect for wheat beer.And that's just what I'm going to have.The beer pours perfectly into a wheat beer glass,with a nice towering creamy white head.The color is an almost amber with perfect little bubbles rising up in the glass.The bubbles make a rice crispies snap,crackle and pop sound.The aroma is traditional banana and clove with a bready yeastiness and a hint of malt and spice.The flavor balance of all the above with a little acidity in the finish is very refreshing.The beer has a nice medium body with an almost chewy malt flavor towards the finish.

Pours a hazy gold amber with a thick white head that leaves some lace behind. Aroma is full of cloves with a little bit of banana mixed in. Flavor is malty and slightly sweet and critusy, with clove notes, a touch of banana, and a slightly sulfury note in the finish. The mouthfeel is a little on the rough side for a hefe-weizen, but it's still quite refreshing and drinkable. Not one of my favorite hefe-weizens, but still a good beer.

A hazy, cloudy amber colour with a dense but fleeting head. The smell is very strong yet sweet. The powerful smell & taste don't make this a guzzling beer although the mouthfeel isn't too bad - its the aftertaste that gets me a little bit. The sweetness in the flavour is really nice and the best thing about this beer is that as it warms up while you drink it the taste is still great.

I had a couple of these at lunch today, so I figured I'd share my thoughts.

It's obviously much darker than most hefeweizens, but it's apparently from an older recipe ("The Original Hefe-Weizen" as it says it on the bottle), so I'm inclined to think I'm looking at what wheat beer looked like a few hundred years ago. It still carries the same big head that other weisse beers do as well as that low-key lemon fruit aroma.

The spectacular feature of this beer is its unique mouthfeel. All hefes have some sort of carbonated feel to them. But if you leave this in your mouth for just a bit, it feels like Pop Rocks. If you've ever had Pop Rocks, it gives you this semi-numb feeling on your tongue as the rocks lively hop around on your tongue. I more or less get that feeling from this beer. It's very lively -- so lively that I get that Pop Rocks sensation in the mouth. Very neat. It just adds to the fun of an already solid brew.

A hazy, yellowish brown Hefe-Weizen, with a large, off-white, creamy head. The smell is sweet and malty. The taste is sweet herbal, followed by pepper, finishing with a lingering clove flavor and very slight citrus. The body is silky and firm (the yeast seems to give it a smooth silky feeling in the mouth). Overall, a refreshing German Hefe-Weizen.

Different than any other wheat beer i've had (not so much in taste as in appearance). Dark, almost brown color, pours large head, retains some throughout. Spicy taste, smooth and refreshing. Semmed to have a fuller body than most of the wheat beers i've tried in the past. Significant enough that I had it after an Aventinus weizen-eisbock, and it still held it's own (of course by then I was feeling quite good!).

First impressions can be decieving as in this case, I think this is the ugliest looking brew that I have ever seen....Then I gave it a soft sniff...Apples, now this is different....Taste is very nice with a mild malty sweetness...I could really get to enjoy this critter.....To bad it's so damn ugly.

Quite appealing as it breathes away in my glass, the translucent deep copper color crowned by a magisterial bright white head. As the head erodes, it leaves a covering of fine lace. Fresh malt aromas dominate with a lightly sweet caramel tone, quite pleasant to sniff. The beer commences with a malt sweetness and leads you to the middling top, the finish sparkling in its acidity, masterful in its hop presence, dry lingering aftertaste and one finely crafted and quaffable beer to this old palate.

Schneider Weisse - one of my all time favorite German Brauerei's. They have a excellent sense of quality. This is a definitive wheat beer. cloudy, yeasty aroma with a scent of hops, delicious almost silky taste with just enough bite to get your palate excited. What can I say - I love this beer. Has a great head with the proper upside down bottle pour into the tall pilsner style glass.

Darker than expected color with a typical Hefe head that stays for awhile. Not a big hefe smell but still present. The flavor appears much bigger at first but kind of fades away. A bit fruity with a touch of spice mixed in.This would be a perfect intro for someone who as not tried this style. Kind of a sweet finish that goes away rather fast. A lot of the little bubbles that you would expect from a hefe.

A decent wheat beer but not even in the same league as their Aventinus. Took a while to get in the glass due to huge amount of foaming. Darker colored than most hefeweizens with very tiny bubbles of carbonation. Somewhat subdued banana / clove flavors which would be good for beginners to the style. A good hefe, but I would rather have a Paulaner or a Pschorr Weisse.

Had this on tap at the Weisses in Munich and it is much fuller in flavor, and sweeter than the bottle version. Gave it a half point more in drinkability.

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

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.
