On-tap served in a Schneider weizen glass at The Witch, Bangkok.

A:
The liquid is hazy with a shiny yellow color and a tinge of orange. The white head crowns thickly by comprising plenty of sudsy foam clinging before gradually subsiding to thin layer of lacing. Medium carbonation pushes many bubbles to rise constantly by mid-tempo towards the top.

S:
So mellow by good combination of banana ester, fresh floral fragrance and prominent malty trait, malt is a big boy in here by covering throughout the smelling sensation while clove imparts a touch of spice to unite.

T:
The taste is rich, mellow yet balanced. Wheat and sweet malt pave the way to welcome fruity ester glistering by banana and citrus. Spice is also there to bring some balance to that fruity sweet. Hop is hidden in but ready to flash with some ghost-like bitterness.

M:
Medium-bodied with silky smooth mouth feel from its lively carbonation that also yields purely refreshing touch through the palate, finish is dry.

O:
This is just great Hefeweizen and nothing more to describe, my one of the favorites in weizen line.

"The Original Hefe-Weisse" comes in a half liter bottle, poured into my very own Schneider Weisse glass given to me by a very knowledgeable German beer fan. Opens with a gentle hiss and a slight gunsmoke. Pours a surprisingly dark color for a hefe-weisse (a light brown, rather than golden). I guess I am too used to the American wheat beers. Huge amounts of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass- a 3 1/2" head is trying to collapse, but no way with all these bubbles coming up. Quite pretty. Aroma is malty, grainy, but different than all-barley beers. I guess I am smelling wheatfields. Flavor is very nicely balanced- no strong flavors pop out over any others, but I detect slight citrus notes and a lot of breadiness. Overall very drinkable; nice and creamy.

Pours a dark golden amber color with a nice frothy white head that stays until the end (which wasn’t all that long for me with this beer). Nose is ripe banana, citrus, clove, vanilla, and nutmeg. Fine champagne-like carbonation is very crisp and refreshing in the mouth. Taste is quite fruity with a bit of spiciness and some bready notes and a semi-dry finish. Near infinite drinkability. This is an outstanding Hefe. Great for a warm Texas January afternoon!

One of the best Bavarian Hefe Weizen beers available in the US. Best served in a proper glass, followed by a moment of sheer admiration at its beauty, then drunk. No need for lemon.

Had this at the brewhouse in Munich. Served in a hefe glass cool.

A-bright orange (almost sex-on-the-beach body) and a thick white head.

S-strong clove, spice and bubblegum aroma

T-bubblegum is pronounced, wet, cereal and lemon flavors

M-light

D-great on tap at the brewhouse in Munich (despite some rude service) and complex without being to headspinning. I would drink this beer again.

This beer poured a very nice looking amber color with a big thick white head that dissipated within a few moments. The lacing on this beer is worth mentioning also as it was damn near perfect. Smell was of light fruits like pear, apple and peach. There was also a sort of medicinal aspiriny aroma that gave it a bit of a musty smell. Taste was pretty close to the smell, starting off with the aspirin taste and then finishing up with the fruit. Mouthfeel was really good...usually when I taste a Hefeweizen there isnt much hop presence, but it was certainly in this beer. Low alcohol content makes this a beer that one could drink for a while, which is nice for when your drinking for flavor rather then the effects. This is a really nice offering and one that I am delighted to have found over here in Australia. I'll definetly be picking some more up in the future whether it be here or back in Boston.

A: Carbonation is prominent. Darker than most Hefes. Has a dirty brownish-yellow tint. No head at all on this one.
S: A fragrant bouquet of honey and clove.
T&M: It's very light and clean, with a slight spike and then it goes mellow again.
D: I like this one and will come back to this beauty again.

A nice, classic bottle fermented and aged Hefeweizen. Although i drank it early (I believe it was dated 10/30/06 and I drank it around 1/27/06), I was still impressed. I had many American Hefeweizens/wheat but wanted to get my hands on a real good German Hefeweizen to see what it was all about. Schneider-Weisse did not let me down. It poured a nice, dark gold/amber color with a quarter inch, off-white head with decent retention. It reduced a little bit, but a little swirl to release some of the aromas brought it back. The smell was magnificent with the fruits and banana esters rising to the occassion. At first, a slightly bland, seltzer taste, but I believe that was just me because after that first "coating" of my tongue, the greatness of what was the German Hefeweizen let me know that this beer was uber. A pretty thick mouthfeel; not too overwhelming but you knew you were drinking beer. Overall, a very refreshing beer and I believe that the fact that it was not that aged played a factor into the overall beerness (unfortunately, I saw the date after I opened it). Still, a great beer and highly reccommended.

I definitely enjoyed this beer from start to finish. Poured a cloudy, golden brown after the yeast came into the mix. Massive head that remained for a good time. Excellent, somewhat toned down smell with some sort of fruit and a bready aroma. The taste reminds me of a spotted banana, my favorite, as the wheat does well to keep it from being too much. Ideal mouthfeel for a hefe and as drinkable as they come. Of the limited number of hefes I've been able to find, this one ranks among the leaders.
