Schneider Wiesen Weisse (Tap 4) is a difficult one for me. I love pretty much everything from Weisses Bräuhaus, and the beerhall in Munich is one of my favorite spots ever. With this year's Wiesen Weisse, the taste is good, the color is lovely, the mouthfeel is fine, however I can't help but wish for a little more carbonation. I drank this from the bottle last night, and I had the impression they are going for the "draft" feel - in my view they overdid it. All bottles we opened last night were so low in carbonation, this could have been a draft sitting on the counter for a while.
If anyone disagrees please let me know - maybe it was just a bad batch we tasted. In all other aspects, this is another good one from Weisses Bräuhaus.

Hot take: Schneider does not make bad beer. Everything is at least solid, if not excellent. This is a good one, with tones of clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat, and a sweet kiss of honey. Smell is identical. Feel is medium to thick bodied, with wheat and malt depth to boot. Delicious!

Lightly hazy burnt gold with a thin, fuzzy white blanket.

Tangy, lightly toasted wheat and soft phenols are accented by an almost lemony spritz. There's also an almost lager-like corn presence that's more bready and not quite corn.

The soft, medium body has a mildly crisp froth with a semi-dry, tingly finish.

This is one of the better, more drinkable Hefes I've had, and it's not overly chock full of haze either. It also goes absolutely wonderfully with homemade Bavarian lemon, herb and ginger sausage and fresh made pretzels with sweet mustard. It's one of the only food pairings I’ve had that really enhances both the beer and the dish.

From the half liter bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a lovely thick white head. Lovely scent of bread and a bit of banana. Taste follows nose, with a nice lingering classic weizenbier flavor. Yum!

From the 500 ml. bottle dated 081117. Sampled on April 29, 2018 but the age hasn't hurt it.

The appearance is a smoky looking pale amber with a boisterous, foamy white head that lingers and laces.

What a lovely array of aromas this one offers. Toasted white bread, biscuit, Euro-grainy malts, banana, and some smoke.

Medium to full body. Very smooth and delicate.

Lovely flavorful taste of sweet grainy barley malts, banana, smoke, and a squirt of lemon. Overall clean finish. Really easy drinking. I enjoyed it quite a lot.

Nice looking Weißbier, well presented in a 0,5L bottle. Pours orange with nice head. Hints of edel-weisse and banana. Smooth and refreshing. Schneider knows Hefeweissen.

A fresh bottle of this is better than Weihenstephaner in my opinion. This is up their with Andechs weissbier hell, but you have to get a hold of a fresh bottle that is 4 months old & younger. Very fruity in both the aroma and flavor, but the thing that is really bringing it home on this one is the clovey spiciness. My oh my I have never had a hefeweizen putting out this much clove in the taste. This is surely spectacular. I find it mind boggling how the tap 7 original can taste so crappy and bitter compared to this beer. Those strong clove and fruit notes will clearly fade away over time spent in the bottle. What a waste of a beer and you can blame beer distributors for this buffoonery going on. How can any hefeweizen fan on this page give this beer a poor grade? You have to be really retarded or something. Cheers! A-

500 mL bottle from the LCBO, one of four included in their Bavarian Wheatbeer giftbox (alongside Aventinus, their Original and their Hopfenweisse). Coded 7216 (Aug 4 2017) and served slightly chilled.

Pours a foggy, effervescent medium gold colour, topped off with an inch of fluffy, foamy white head that holds together for the next five minutes or so. A thick, even band of sticky lacing is deposited as it recedes down to a creamy-looking cap and frothy collar; looks quite nice in the tall, Schneider-branded weizen glass that came in this giftpack. The aroma features a bready wheat malt base and some clove spiciness, as well as an assertive hop presence that gives off floral, herbal qualities. Secondary suggestions of wet hay, bubblegum and lemon citrus are also present.

A fine-tasting Bavarian wheat, albeit slightly more well-hopped than your standard hefeweizen. Bready wheat and crackery sweetness start things off, with a potent clove spiciness arising early on and persisting throughout the profile. Ripe banana and pear come through mid-sip, but are soon nudged aside by the combo of Hallertauer & Cascade hops - which impart both grassy, herbal and citrusy, floral notes; these blend together well with the peppery clove spice at the finish. The aftertaste is marked by a spicy yeastiness and floral hop bitterness that both dissipate within a second or two. Medium in body, with moderate carbonation levels that provide the sort of mildly crisp bite that is precisely what I want out of my hefes. Far too drinkable at 6.2%.

Final Grade: 4.21, an awesome A-. There are few breweries in the world who can claim to have mastered the art of wheat beer, but I'd argue that Schneider & Sohn easily qualifies as one of them. Tap 4 Wiesen Edel-Weisse may not be their best product overall, but it's still a damn fine wheat beer that I would purchase on a regular basis - at least, if it were available here on a more regular basis. Superb stuff; highly recommended.

Vigorously carbonated, with lots of lively effervescence. I get a green apple and clove note in the nose. Light with a clove and green apple note. From the bottle.

Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is cloves, wheat and bananas. The taste follows the nose.

TAP 4 is now named meine festweisse.
Great hefeweizen, still taste very fresh even if it was brewed almost one year ago. The hop is very present fro the style and bring some citrus and herbal notes. Orchard fruits notes are present. Very balance, very refreshing. Tasty treat
