Bottle conditioned, darker hazy amber. Lots of aroma, banana and notes of caramel and spice. Pretty light bodied but impressive presence in the mouth, persistant flavor. Nice estery flavor, not at all lemony/sour but a muted wave of subtle banana/orange/clove with a slight touch of vanilla. The nice coating mouthfeel makes this a 3 season weisse to me. One of my favorites in a non-favorite style.

The Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse has a bright, clear golden color, until the yeasties are added in...then it has a dull, tawny bronze color. It has a creamy, white, tight head, which sticks around a bit....lacing is ok, at best. Pleasant spicy/banana nose...ahhh...not much clove, though. Starts with a bready/crackery maltiness, with some spicy flavor, a bit of clove, banana...yeastiness...mmm... Medium body and smoothness...with the typical Hefeweizen carbonation-induced prickliness. Verrry drinkable bier. Prosit!!

The tremendously thick and mountainous head tops a very hazy light orange bubbly brew. Typically appetizing apperance for a German hefeweizen. Musty yeast notes in aroma, but the signature hefeweizen banana and clove notes are unexpectedly quite mild. There's the slightest hint of citrus as well. The aroma is reminescent of Paulaners hefe, but is more subdued . Although carbonation is high, the very smooth mouthfeel and rich body from the wheat protein provides for a cream - like sensation. Banana yeast notes are the prominent esters, but a slight bubblegum flavor can be discerned. Hop character is minimal, and only noticed in the bittersweet finish. A pleasant alcohol warmth is the final sensation. This beer reminds of Paulaner hefeweizen except with more body, apparent alcohol, and with less yeast fermentation byproducts. Edel - Weisse is a very interesting and flavorful brew. A bit more yeast esters would've added to the complexity.

Presentation: 500 ml (16.9 oz) slender brown bottle with info about the brewery on the back label, no freshness date.

Appearance: Cloudy orange with a thick meringue-like cream coloured head, this is due to the vigorous pouring and swirling of the yeast into the glass.

Smell: Pungent aromatic spicy clove with noticeable fruity alcoholic esters. Sweetness from a bready wheat malt character and a faint lemon aroma.

Taste: Sturdy medium body, smooth creamy mouth feel though an ample carbonation holds everything together. Straight forward tickly spicy flavour of cloves with suggestions of nutmeg and faded pepper corns. Hops are nearly non existent and are no match for the spicy character of this brew. Malt is quite sufficient and has a sour dough like quality to it, vague and mellow nuttiness from the yeast rounds out the beer with a complex elegance. Alcohol is evident and warms the mouth and body equally. The raw flavours of this intricate beer give a confusing yet blissful end.

Notes: German wheat in the raw, very robust and in you face. A beer to consume with full respect and enjoy like royalty because this is a trophy brew that flexes for all of the senses.
