This was a perfect beer for me! After aging three years, this was a marvellously smooth, tasty and rounded beer. Some of my favorite beers are from Schneider and this was far surpassed the expectations that I had.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass very slowly.

A real impressive appearance. Head forms with real creamy sticky retention, with a caramel light yellow color. It looks like whipped up foam. The body in this glass is a myriad of orb glowing colors. From the bottom a perfect lemon yellow to gradual peach orange at the top with everything in between the spectrum. In one word flat out amazing beer. Some typical cola large bubbled carbonation, but not much.

Nose is light floral sense but also the standard banana and cloves sense. Seems a little drier spice action mixed with good lemon and citrus. Mix that in with the floral angle and it is almost potpourri, even fruit punch (a good one).

Taste is a wonderful array of sensations. Front palate starts off with orange citrus then sweet malts and chewy banana, orange again in the swallow with bitter tolerable citrus. Bitter citrus angle on this is very unique. Mouthfeel is classic creamy with a little hint of wet, just enough carbonation to make it interesting.

Overall I love the bouncing between orange and banana, and the play between bitter and sweet on this thing. It goes back and forth and forth. This is one unbelievably good beer.

Old notes, especially about the taste:

No. 3224; the 2012, had in 2013;
Fruity complexity, ranging from acidic (apple, grape, pear), to citrusy (orange, grapefruit weaker than expected, lime), to ripe (peach, apricot), to tropical (banana, light pineapple);
The sweetness is mild, provided by the fruitiness, and toned down by wheaty malts, lightly toasted bread; the spice is classic, with some nice clove mostly;
Also has a hay-stacky note, followed by herbal and floral goodness from the hops, which don't exactly nuke on the finish (not bad);
Alcohol is hidden nicely, and only tickles, helped by the pleasant carbonation; the resulting aftertaste is mildly bitter, leaving traces of the fruitiness and a wheatiness that lingers for a while;
A perfect weizenbock

Later edit: Just had the 2011 vintage, and the fruitiness is off the charts. Huge orchard fruit and exotic lytchee. The rest are the same. But the hops hugely enhanced the fruity character. This is extremely tasty, a real treat. Just a quick edit of the ratings, setting taste to 4.75.

750ml from Hop City in Atlanta, GA; poured into a tulip

A- Beautiful opaque golden orange, with a thick white head
S- Banana, orange, yeast and clove plus a ton of other spices and fruity tones...smells so complex and delicious I can't help but drink another sip every time I try to smell it. Against my normal reviewing process, but can't help it.
T- Tastes very much like it smells: banana, fruit, spices. Sweet on the finish, reminding me of a red wine or raspberry taste.
M- Nice carbonation, which really helps a beer this dense/chewy in this style.
D- I could drink this all night; as it is warming up it is getting even more complex. Will definitely be buying this again.

Label shows 2011 but no drink by date or conclusive born on date.

Slightly hazy peach color with white head.

Subdued banana and clove in the nose. Some berry notes. My guess is from the Nelson Sauvin hops.

Deliciously fruity esters coming through with a banana and lemon kick in the end. Very good mouthfeel and even easier to drink. Doesn't come through like 7.3% at all. As this warms a bit more phenolic notes come out and a bit of sulfur. The malt character is complex with some straw and and oily character from the large amount of wheat.

This is a fantastic beer. I'm not sure it warrants the $17.99 price tag for a big bottle but it was tasty.

Everything about this bottle says "This is exceptional", and it is. Nice tempered weizen aromas with a little essence of wine. Pours medium golden with pillowy head and fine but plentiful carbonation. Taste is weizen plus grapes. These hops really blend well with this style. No alcohol burn at all, but feeling the warmth after just a few sips. This a good Sunday afternoon sipper.

I think this is a fantastic beer. Pours a hazy golden, with the haze providing a bit of a glow. White head is foamy, creamy and thick. Nice lacing.

Banana and clove are present in the nose, but not dominant like a regular hefe. That's fine with me. Instead there is a faint peach and tartness. Some soft citrus and an overall dryness.

Flavor follows the nose, although here the peach makes more of a presence. Maybe it's a combination with mango? Toward the end the clove and banana make a move toward the tongue but the carbonation lifts it all away.

Really nice beer.

A: 1/2" foamy white head that left a nice lacing over cloudy amber liquid.

S: Cloves, banana, gooseberries, pears, white grapes.

T: Marshmallows, pears, sweet white grapes, bananas, vanilla, cloves.

M: Pillow soft, some drying and bite from the alcohol, medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: An extremely tasty and beautiful beer.
