Poured from fridge temp. Pours golden yellow with little head. Nose is wheat, orange, and a touch of spice. Taste follows the nose - orange and wheat dominate. Nice bread, earth, spice, and grass. Really nice mouthfeel. Overall, a great example of the style.

Bottle purchased in Dublin. Pours clear, gold in color with one inch head. Taste is bananas, cloves and dark bread. Smells amazing. Light bodied, sweet, with moderate carbonation. Super clean, amazing beer. All day.

From the Kalea Bier Advents Kalender. From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden color with a lovely rich luscious head. The head stays and stays, like a great weizen should! Bread, banana and cloves in the nose. The mouth follows...YUM!

The bottle says "Meine helle Weisse" as opposed to Blondes, but it is still "Tap 1"

Golden orange color with a thick two finger head with short retention. I was expecting more head.
Nice aroma with notes of oranges, lots of honey, banana and cloves.
Flavor with notes of fresh oranges, honey, mild ginger and clove, a bit of banana and bubblegum, wheat, pineapple juice and malt sweetness. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation of tiny bubbles.
Refreshing Hefeweizen with predominant orange, pineapples and malty notes. It has a much less cloying potential than the average Hefe, but also it is less complex and flavorful than their original tap 7.

Yellow with a brown tinge, slightly cloudy and lots of small fine bubbles for carbonation. Topped with one finger of off-white head.

Smells of Carmel, bubblegum, coriander, and a sort of syrupy peach juice.

The taste follows the nose. It's very dry, with hints of fruity peach juice, crème brûlée, and phenols.

Medium, dry body with crisp carbonation.

I found this one at beer terminal in Chang Mai, Thailand. I'm drinking it here in Chang Mai October 14, 2017. It's a pretty good brew, I chose it because it was being highly rated. Tastes like this one might've been around a while at the store.

Golden and hazy. Huge creamy head which is 3 fingers tall and longly persisting. Leaves very good lacing.
Moderate-high banana esters and spicy cloves welcomes a nose upfront.
Moderate sweet flavor, pronounced by grainy, wheat notes, is very well paired with moderate, yeasty bitterness. Moderate fruity, yeasty notes like bananas. Banana and cloves flavor is well balanced. General flavor impression, thanks to a fruity yeast, goes to a sweetness. Medium-light body, average carbonation. Beer is very fresh, creamy and fluffy. Mouth feel ended by a semi dry finish.

Very tasty.

Pours a bit deeper straw gold than most hefes, a bit hazy, with a large head that lasts a long time and leaves some lace. Nose is mildly estery, but is much more on the spicy clove side and not so much on the bubblegum/banana side. Flavor is rounded with a nice malt backbone, heavy clove, and some light fruit in the back. Overall, good but not as good as I was expecting.

Nice hefeweizen. It has almost a gold colour and it definitely doesn't have only wheat in it. The esters are nicely present with some clove. The mouthfeel is quite smooth

This Hefeweizen exhibits the typical Schneider Weisse yeast aromas that is an interplay of the phenols and the esters, or in other words clove and banana. When poured with yeast the body is nicely creamy and an overall good Weissbier. My problem is that there is not much body and malt backbone at the centre, which limits the experience and leaves refreshed but not entirely satisfied.

Despite the name this beer is not exactly blonde, it is more of a straw color with a faint hint of orange. It has a medium white head that quickly dissipates and a somewhat high amount of carbonation. The smell is of wheat, banana, and a little orange. The flavors corresponding to the smells are all there with the typical wheat / banana hefe flavors coming to the forefront. There is a nice spicy clove flavor to even it out also. The body is on the lighter end of medium and the finish is somewhat dry. These are two things that I don’t normally associate with beers that I’m really into, but in this case it really works well. Combined with the fruity, crisp flavors this light body makes this an amazing summer beer. It’s no Unser Aventinus, but it isn’t really a fair comparison for me because I could never rate a beer this light as high as a top dopplebock. It is a really nice, lighter hefe that I would definitely drink more of though.

Beautiful fluffy head covers a nice, hazy golden beer. Aroma of hay, taste of bread and hint of pineapple/grapefruit/banana. Not as good as the Tap 7, but definitely a head above the rest.

Hazy golden colour, with a big head that does not hold for too long, leaving a good lace. Aroma of cloves, banana, bepaches, melon. Madium body, lively carbonation. Taste is the same as the aroma, with some lemon notes and some sweetness in the end.

From Alcampo. In Bavaria glass. Reading CPPHTP10 Ch12. Pleasant to drink, with less body than usual in a hefeweizen. Lots of banana in its nose, which is great.

500ml bottle into a conical pint glass. Paid £2.90 for a single bottle.

Pours a cloudy, amber-brown coloured body, which turns to a dark golden yellow when held to the light and allows tons of visible streaming carbonation to be observed. A two-finger in height, fluffy, white head reduces quickly to a patchy film and thin collar, without leaving much lacing on the glass.

The nose is subtle overall; it leads primarily with a light amount of creamy malted wheat and white flour, along with some very faint clove notes in the background. Even after warming, the banana, bubble gum and fruity esters typical of the style remain absent. The taste follows the nose, upfront, slightly sweet, soft wheat leads, alongside a very mild citrus touch. Mid palate strong clove and light peppery characters build to provide a fair amount of spice, peaking with a bite towards the back end, before being joined by a hint of earthy hops in the finish. In the mouth sparkling carbonation and a medium body give a slightly prickly, but smooth and crisp feel. Spicy clove and alcohol give a touch of warmth, finishing quick, clean and dry on the palate.

Overall this is a pretty good beer. The soft wheat body isn’t quite robust enough to support the dominant clove and pepper phenols but it still remains a very drinkable and enjoyable beer. I’d certainly try it again, but given the choice, prefer the more complex and fruity Tap 7.

Pours a hazy pale golden color, covered by a decent white foamy head, ok retention. Lovely aroma of wheat, bananas with some citrusy and spicey presence. Taste is the same. Sweet and wheaty, a bit fruity with some spices and lemony feel in the mildly bitter finish. Nice.

This is a beautifully balanced hefeweizen. One where the taste of wheat itself gets to shine, complemented by a subtle yet sparkling spiceness.

A real delight.

Draft beer at Weisses Brauhaus. Good looking blonde, slight cloudiness. Very good hop aroma and the taste is a complex spice and a touch of bitterness. Very good.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 15A). AROMA: moderate wheat aroma with no phenols and no esters. no hop aroma. APPEARANCE: pale straw color with a long-lasting white head. a bit haizy. TASTE: soft wheat flavour with very low hop flavour. mild citric flavour present. Absent or very low esters and phenols. PALATE: medium-light body with a light fizzy finish. OVERALL: a nice weizen but without esters and phenols.

Very nice appearance - a thick white head atop a light gold hazy body. Good retention. Light citrus notes and wheat dominate the smell, making it very refreshing. The taste adds even more to this, making it a perfect summer beer. Very light body, dry finish. Overall, this is a good example of the style, but I've had many different hefeweizen and I've had better!

So happy to find Scheider Weisse in Korea! (Go Emart!) I am a huge fan of Aventinus but had suprisingly never had their regular Hefe.

Pours golden blond with flufy white head

Smells of malty and fruity

Tastes like banana and spices (clove and coriander) with a citrus bite towards the end

Mouthfeel- Smooth and medium bodied. Not too much carbonation.

Overall- A great beer which is no surprise given the brewery. It still cant really compare to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier but still a great beer and a decent price (4 bucks for a big bottle)

From Leura. Oops!!!! BB 301306 :-(

A - golden blonde, less head than should be, no lace.

S - massive bananas, hint bubblegum. Clove, spice.

T - fair whack (technical term) of banana, add cloves, yeast, and aged semillon notes. Quite vinous, more so than expected. Almost some barrel notes as well.

M - let down - just bubbles in mouth really, fizzy.

O - Maybe an unfair review given it's out-of-date but still very drinkable. If only Australian brewers could do the same. Pales against Weihenstephan tho, especially in mouthfeel.

On-tap at Weisses Brauhaus, on to the beer:

Unlike the standard Schneider Weiss, this one is cloudy blonde colored, topped with a thcik creamy head. The aroma brings to mind lemon pastries and a kiss of clove. Then the beer takes off...taste it...lots of good stuff. There's lemon, banana, nutmeg, banana bread, and a touch of cinnamon. With a soft and gentle mouthfeel, it helps bring this hefeweizen to a well-earned spot among the elite. Just a great beer!

I am not a big fan of this style, but excited to drink this. I haven't had a light beer in a while, as I have been on a stout kick lately. Oh, and an IPA kick. But I am always on an IPA kick. I did like reading about this brewing company and the history behind this beer. That is what makes beers exciting.

Reading the tasting notes, I am looking forward to smelling and drinking this beer. I recently had a bottle of Spine Tingler that had tasting notes explained as bubble gum… and it was like drinking liquid bubble gum. I liked it. I am hoping this has some of those same characters. I am also curious to see if there is much vanilla, as styles like this usually don't provide me much vanilla aroma or flavors. Should be fun. Let's drink, people!

In the Glass: Very impressive pour. I didn't pour this fast as I was worried about a possible sediment in the bottom of the glass, but there is a really nice head and I could smell this from the second I started pouring. The aroma is not overwhelming, but has a lovely expected scent to it. I have said this before, and I will say this again… not a big fan of this style. But I am going to give it a shot!

Nose: This smells like a hefe-weizen should. I am not sure why this bottle has a - in the middle. I have always spelled it hefeweisen, but the - does add a certain foreign appeal to it. It has a musky/dirty aroma, too. Something that makes me feel like I am in Europe walking the streets late at night chugging one more beer before bed. I do enjoy a beer with a little earthiness in the aroma.

Flavor: Pretty boring at first, but has a nice punch toward the end. It does have the expected hefeweizen flavor profile, but nothing to write home about. The burp is pretty boring, too. (You will notice, as I write my reviews, that I mention the burp. I only mention the burp when and where it happens. Sometimes that happens in the flavor and others toward the aftertaste. But if I burp while reviewing, I will always mention the experience.) A second drink doesn't leave me too excited.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is pretty boring. At first, it is cold (right from the fridge), thin and then finishes as such. Really, I don't want to even finish my glass. I can see why people like this style, but I just don't. This is/would be a good style for people that don't like craft beer but want to experience the flavor of a craft beer. The finish is thin, and pretty much boring. It's there, and gone again.

Aftertaste: What aftertaste? There isn't much of an aftertaste at all. As fast as you take a drink, it's gone again. A beer like this might taste better in the summer, and while outside at a concert or a sporting event. But this is not something I would order out nor something I would buy again. Maybe my palate is changing, but this is not a good beer. Cool story, and a lot of history here… but that's about it.

Sorry Schneider Weisse… but I don't like you!
