Another great 500mL bottle poured into a weizen!

Three finger head, straw gold body!

Smells of banana and malt!

Tastes of clove, banana, and malt!

Warming mouthfeel!

Overall, this is an interesting example of the many directions hefeweizen can go! Schneider is an excellent producer of the style, and truly does it again with this beer!

I'd highly recommend this beer to anyone with experience with hefeweizens. This is not for beginners or the uninitiated.

500 mL btl poured at 3C, tasted at 8C

Deep cloudy and rich orange pour with a thick dense head the settles to 2 fat finger and is maintained by healthy and constant carbonation.

Smells of musty hops, spicy mulled and funky citrus and tropical fruits. hints of coriander, clove. Some activated lemon and wheat-bready yeast fermenting alcohol.
At first the funk is overwhelming and off putting, but after warming up a little it softens and blends with oily citrus fruits.

Sharp citrus based acidity. Sticky spicy sweetness plays well against a lively carbonation. Sweet mandarin and tangerine with hints of wood and crisp lemon tartness balances this summery beer completely. Semi-sour notes counters an otherwise overriding funk that would likewise be unbalanced and overbearing.

Mildly juicy, sticky sugars with only hints of the residual. Crisp but not tight acidity and lightly wooded dry hop finish elevates the clingy funk and citrus along along with fine carbonation.

Well balanced and wheaty as a stack of wheat cakes. Citrus in all the right ways and proportions. The complexities are astonishing and frankly a little much for me at the moment( mainly of the dough-yeast-wheat depths of ridiculousness). As it warms the funk is just right and less dominant than when first poured; the alcohol warming effect is also increased in just the right amount.
Pour, drink, be merry, repeat.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider-Weisse weizen glass.

Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a pretty nice head.

Smells very fresh and grassy.

Tastes extremely light, like a hefeweizen but with more herbal hops, almost minty in fact, though more pleasant than it sounds. Less yeast than normal.

Overall a really nice beer to drink.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Light golden yellow and orange hues, with a very thin layer of white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Slow falling lacing that doesn't stick. Much clearer than I would have expected.

S: Not much nose. There is a faint hint of something that might be flowery, but that's it.

T: It has a familiar banana flavor to it, but the beer is a bit harsher than a Hefeweizen normally is. There is a light cardboard taste to the beer as well (oxidation?). Light bitterness in the aftertastes. The signature banana flavor is very nice and mellow, but I don't get much yeast or wheat flavor from the beer at all.

M: The mouthfeel was a bit rougher than what I'd expect. There is a rather harsh twang from the bitterness. The beer is not as smooth as I'd expect either.

O: Overall I found it to be very below average. It could be that this is because I'm drinking an imported bottle. I probably wouldn't buy it again, unless I was drinking it in Europe or perhaps on-tap in a bar. My bottle is stamped 120525 so I'm guessing it was bottled May 25th 2012? If so it probably lost a lot of flavor over the 7 month period.

500ml bottle poured into my seldom used matching Schneider Weisse glass 16/12/12

A murky dark orange with loads of bubbles and a massive head that sits over the glass for a few sips, still a thin layer of foam at the bottom and lots of random lace, looks the part

S dried and busied banana with just a hint of peach, cloves and spices with some bread, bubble gum, cereal and orange peel, smells strong and about what I expect from the style but with some leafy herbal hops

T some more citrus and hops but less of the yeasty hefe aspects, still spicy and fruity but less banana notes, good but it smelled great

M less bubbles then I could see but that still leaves plenty, a little thick for the style but no issue, spicy on the finish

O a hoped up hefe that hits all the spots, great nose and I'm just missing the hot sunny day

not the best I've had from these guys but pretty solid and I like having a reason to bust out my foot tall glass
