look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

(16.9 oz bottle, code 16 343... purchased warm last week... poured into a standard weizen glass)

L: light-medium amber-colored liquid with a mild haze... foam builds high and shows a rolling, pillowy contour during collapse

S: mild-moderately spicy phenols, a rather potent aroma similar to flowery bath soap and black pepper, with very subtle hints of clove, cinnamon, and bubble gum, neither of the three standing out much more dominantly within the group... delicate pan-citrus fruitiness at its core... malt is also delicate and smells of golden crust of fresh-baked sandwich rolls

T: thread of mildly yeasty and phenolic bitterness up front, enveloped by a truly rich, dense, doughy malt, with a slight hint of toasted grain... the aftertaste has essence of earthy yeast and green grass highlights, fairly dry with a lingering herbal bitterness

F: lovely, soft, pillowy... light-medium bodied, surely leaning toward med (even before yeast slug added)... dry finish, marginally clipped... latent carbonation, not very lively across tongue... all in all, hearty but not filling

O: again and again I will side with this one over the Schneider classic/original... even with a lil age on this, it still has a satisfying flavor and is damn drinkable... seems like most of my homebrew hefes end up tasting similar to this (not quite as good, mind you)

Slight smokey clove and semolina aroma
And that's in the flavour with a slightest hint of bacon

Poured 500ml bottle into tall glass. Color is a brownish yellow with a fluffy 2..5 finger white head. The cap lasts until I finish my glass. Aroma is wheaty with soft banana notes and some grain, clove, and just a touch of grassy hops. Flavor is rather soft bread and wheat with some additional banana and clove. It is medium bodied, with a soft mouth feel. Made for a nice change of pace as Spring arrives.

Poured into weizen glass. Small head with good retention. Orange-gold wheat color with dancing sediment and lively bubbles.

Wheaty nose, w/ standard banana and clove. Fades to a grassier smell.

Taste is likewise, wheat, banana, cloves. Hop grass fills out the flavor, but are muted by grain notes as the beer warms.

Medium mouth, finish a little dry.

Originally brewed for Oktoberfest (but obvs not a Märzen), this is a solid hefeweizen. A little more watery than other Schneider Weisse offerings, but still of a good flavor.

A-Golden yellow with a white head that lingers for quite a while. Not much lacing
S-Lots of musk and funk in the aroma. Some wooden notes as well as plenty of fruit. Subtle spice aroma of cinnamon.
M-Medium mouthfeel with the usual high carbonation from a Hefe
T-Sweet and smooth funky flavour that does not overpower. There is a little spicy kick from the carbonation and maybe the yeast as well
O-I keep trying but ultimately I am not a real fan of Weisse and Hefe type beers. The funk definitely grows on you, but I miss my IPA punch.

16.9 oz bottled poured into a weizen glass. Golden color and clear appearance, and nice white head on the beer. Crisp, clean organic hefeweizen. Subtle clove flavors, and earthy yeast. Outstanding for the style, I'm just not a huge hefeweizen drinker. It's very popular where I work, so definitely worth trying.

Poured an amber color with evident sediment. One finger white fizzy head. Minimal lacing. Aroma was faint bread and clove. Taste was faint bread and clove followed by banana after a few sips. Slight bitter hops on the end. The beer was heavier than other hefes and considered to be of medium body and carbonation. This is a good hefe but there are better.
