Bottled
Pours a slightly hazy cloudy golden body with huge foaming thick white head
Slight smokey clove and semolina aroma
And that's in the flavour with a slightest hint of bacon

Some floating yeast sediment, but otherwise a beautiful beer; turbid, with a thick, meringue head. Typical Hefeweizen aromas, but with some additional vanilla, giving it a banana cream pie feel. Taste is not as much banana as the nose, and much more clove - too much. A spicy one. A good candidate for a Bananaweizen mix on the beach.

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.

Cloudy and opaque yellow orange with a ton of sediment that sinks to the bottom. Fluffy white head that laces well. Smells like sweet grain, banana, and spice. Tastes similar with subdued banana, and almost drinks like a hefty pilsner thanks to a nice biscuit like presence. Well carbonated, medium feel, and a touch of spicy bitterness make this a wonderful Weisse beer to e njiy year round. Prost!

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.
