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.

500ml bottled on 7 sep 16 poured into a weissbeer glass picked up at my local Rewe Center

Decent looking beer hazy golf with carb columns but a little light on the white head with good retention; aroma is really impressive sweet banana bread with mild spicy and citrusy hop notes; dry yeasty grain with a grassy hop bitterness at the end; good medium mouthfeel with slight stickiness but good carb balance; decent with amazing aroma but maybe a little light on the flavor -- I wonder if it's relative rarity in the states contributes to its high rating.

Cloudy, golden - light-amber color, nice head, some bits of yeast. The aroma is dominantly bready, some citruses, banana and cloves. The taste is quite sweet moderate-low bitterness, higher, than it's typical for a Weizen. Quite full body. Noticable alcohol notes. High carbonation but not high for the style. Pretty drinkable so beware of its 6,2 % ABV. An interesting piece that is somewhere between classical German Weizen and American wheat. (I would say more close to the German style.)

This currently called Tap4: Meine Festweisse, but seems to be the same beer
Very fine bubbled thick and long lasting white head. Body is murky orange
In the beginning I get mainly Cascade hops. Later the typical Schneider yeast shines through: banana and clove.
Taste yeasty and malt sweet with some caramell from darker malts. Bitterness is stronger than in their more standard offerings and there is some grapefruit there as well, which I find not in harmony with the rest.
Creamy yeast good carbonation
Nice offering that may appeal to some
