Bottle served into Schneider Weisse pint glass in Berlin, Germany. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a standard blonde. Head is five fingers of mild cream.

Sm: Fresh, creamy, malty, and yeasty.

T: Some cream on the open. Barley and yeast comprise the body. An empty lackluster finish. It's actually a bit watery.

Mf: Too smooth, too wet, too watery.

Dr: Decent quality and decently priced, but shite compared to other similar offerings.

Poures a nice blond color with a light orange tint with a big blooming head leaving nice lave down my weisse glass,clovey,spicey aroma with a some light banana but the spice is dominant.Cloves hit the palate right away with some but some citrus (lemon mainly) comes thru to make this a refresher and brings nice balance.What can I say a great Bavarian Weisse on par with the best in the world in my opinion.

500 ml bottle, lately labeled as "Meine blonde Weisse". Poured into a "Schneider Weisse" weizen glass.

Color is cloudy orange, head is large and foamy but doesn't leave much lace.
Fruity aroma. I can smell yeast, citrus, orange and wheat.
Medium body and well carbonated.

I have tried all beers from Schneider and although I like Tap 4,5,6 and 7 more than this one, it still is a very good Hefeweizen.

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

Appearance: Cloudy amber brown with a thick pillowy off white head that stays for the duration from a semi vigorous pour and then swirling the yeast in at the end.

Smell: Fruity mix of pear, peach and mandarin orange in the nose, soft spicy clove and alcoholic esters noticeable also.

Taste: Bubbly champagne like carbonation though a medium body and a full malty palate flexes for a smooth and crisp mouth feel. Big spicy splash of clove as soon as the effervescent carbonation hits. Phantom like hop bitterness that is barely there is buried among the wound up flavours. Fruity all over going from pear to mandarin orange to peach, faint medicinal flavour from the phenols also kicks in. Obvious alcoholic esters present with a sweet spiciness. Healthy twang from the wheat malt and ample sweetness to, a mild sweet bread flavour and a semi dry grainy finish.

Notes: Quite a thrilling brew, noted as the “Original German Hefe-Weizen”. Perhaps that is why it is darker in colour than most hefeweizens. Hearty and packed with character and able to cleanse the palate of most any robust cuisine. My choice was obvious, knockwurst and sauerkraut with spicy mustard.

Pours a nice golden brown and is smooth and medium bodied. No tinge of real bitterness or immaturity. Goes smooth and not overly heavy on the palate and stomach. Flavoring is even and consistent with little changing until it is gone. One to come back to time and time again.

Pours a slightly hazy, pale brown color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of slight lemon, yeast, sweet malt, orange peel, and slight wheat. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is slightly smooth and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, slight citrus, slight wheat, and slight hop. Overall, good body, blend, and aroma. Little darker than I'm used to, but still a good example.

Had this at the Delerium cafe in Brussels - been looking for the Weizenhell version for a long time now. Served in a Schneider weizen glass.

A - Awesome looking stuff - exactly how a wheat beer should look. Big billowing blonde foam that eventually settles to about 2-3 fingers before slowly dissipating to a half-finger cap and leaves lots of sticky lacing. Hazy dark peach color that is a little darker than the regular stuff. Not sure what else you'd want from the style.

S - Cloves, banana, tangy wheat, bubblegum, black pepper. It's perhaps a little spicier than the original, but not super different. Still it's very potent and lovely smelling stuff.

T - The taste is a little more subdued with mostly sweet malted wheat and banana flavors, and a bubble-gum finish. The clove and pepper seems to disappear, and there is minimal aftertaste.

M - Typical weizen texture - moderate carbonation, medium body, soft texture, clean finish. I actually like my weizens to have a little less zing on the upper lip, but otherwise this was solid.

D - Super drinkable. Low ABV, moderate carbonation, great clean taste - definite summer beer. Not sure why we don't get the Weizenhell version in the US, as it's a nice spin on an old classic.

At the time of this review, this is #5 on the "Top Beer - Hefeweizen" list on beeradvocate.com. Served in a weizen glass. Beer is yellow and hazy, high carbonation, nice head, a little small, retention low. Some lacing.

Aroma is banana, complete banana.

Beer is wet and light to medium in body. Moderate carbonation on the palate, sweet, a little grainy, nice fruits and a great palate with a nice finish, This is almost exactly like Weihenstephaner, meaning this was very good and I'd have it again.

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.

Of the great German hefes that we get here, this one differentiates itself with more orange. This summer I've been making my way through as many hefes as possible and this one is pretty good. Mouthfeel isnt too light, like so many domestic attempts (pale wheat ale) and is a little bready without that being the overriding flavor. There's a bit of lemon, but I get more orange than anything. Very drinkable of course, go get yourself a bottle.

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!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This bottle was labeled Tap 1 Mein Blondes.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat, coriander and cloves. I don't get much banana in the aroma. The flavor is heavy on the wheat and cloves, but I also don't get much banana. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A decent wheat beer, but not up to the level of the other great wheat beers from this brewery.

Pours darker than many hefes, with an amber hue and a nice white head that settles to a ring. Classic Hefeweizen aromas of banana and clove, nicely in balance, and a light graininess a well as a touch of pear. Taste is similar. Spicy clove and a touch of banana, somewhat creamy but leans more toward the spicy side. Smooth and spicy in the mouth, a classic and a pleasure to drink.

I had this (im fass gereift) at the Weisses Brauhaus, where it was listed as 5.2% alcohol.

A: Golden yellow, slight haze, great head & lace.

S: Bready malt, slight banana.

T: Bready malt, slight banana, hint of citrus. Quite malty, with a crisp finish. Well balanced.

M: Light to moderate body and carbonation. Crisp, but somewhat creamy. Very nice.

D: Very good.

500ml Bottle
Appearance - The beer pours a murky light brown/amber colour with a very large frothy white coloured head. I can't see much carbonation due the darkness/haziness of the beer and there is some very nice lacing running in stages down the sides of the glass. The head lasted for several minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - bananas, bubblegum, wheat, cloves , malts

Taste & Mouth - The beer is perfectly doesn't have a whole lot of carbonation and it feels very light on the palette. Most of the taste is made up of bananas, wheat, and cloves. There are also some malts and light hops. The beer finishes with a refreshing malty banana aftertaste

Drink - An extremely easy drinking and refreshing beer that is a must try. Would be perfect in the summer months.
