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. Considering, that I reside in the southern part of the USA it is quite difficult to get a hold of a fresh bottle of this & at $4.99 a pint it is not worth picking up for me. Thos strong clove and fruit notes clearly fade away over time. 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 (95-99) world class score range

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

500 ml bottle, part of the Holiday Schneider-Weisse pack. Served fairly cold into a Schneider-Weisse hefe glass.

Appearance - Very clear rich golden color, looking more Kristalweizen than Hefeweizen, but I digress. A nice finger and change of fluffy white head is poured receding rapidly to a thin loose cap of foam. Some sticky lacing sticks to the glass.

Smell - Loads of banana and bubble gum with some cloves and spices mixed in. Not a lot else here other than the depth and saturation of such smells. Possibly a spicy or peppery note in there too.

Taste - Banana is quite prevalent but dialed back compared to the aroma. Some spice and clove there with a solid level of earthy bitterness. Some hoppy leafiness in here too that seems to get better after repeated sips.

Mouthfeel -Smooth and crisp, medium bodied, good expressive carbonation. A little more booziness in the back of the throat.

Overall -A little disappointing given my high hopes for this as an upgraded version of Tap 7, but still a worthy purchase and nice addition to the Holiday pack. These guys simply don't make bad wheat beers.

From cervezasespeciales. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Bad End. Hefe notes with plenty fresh grassy hops notes that reminds their incredible tap 5. Nearly as good but a bit softer

Poured from a bottle into a tall glass. Nice clear yellow with light head and lacing. Very fragrant initially with lemon, grass and earth. Taste is sweet and bright. I think the bottle I had was a bit old. Would love to have it fresh!
