3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown. Enormous rocky head. notmuch aroma. some roastiness that reminds me of a porter. don’t detect much wheat flavors though; nevertheless, this one was enjoyable. i liked it more than the pikantus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle labeled as hefewiezen dark -pours dark brown with a nice creamy tan head that stays pretty well and laces some on the Weizen. Aromas of clove, bannana, caramel, molasses, and even a little bubblegum. Flavor is caramel, chocolate, cloves, bannana, molasses. Leans more towards the fruity side but quite pleasant. Good medium body with a fair amount of carbonation which gives it a soft mouthfeel and a pretty clean feeling palate.

After tasting some powerful double IPAs yesterday, thanks to Juancho, this one seems pretty flat. Nice caramel appearance with a fast disappearing head. After that, no much to tell....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smell is sweet and heady with some soy and some cloves. Pours a deep, molasessey(sp?) brown with a firm head but virtually no lace. Flavour is nicely sweet with some of that west-european caramel malt coming through, but the finish becomes a little astrigent, cloying and soupy with a coat on the tongue. Definitely worth a revisit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with a very nice creamy 1 in. head which quickly dissapated into a 1/8in. head. The aroma was a bubble gum candy aroma. The bubbles were relatibvely large but they were prominent and fluffy enough to really enojoy. The taste was a very pleasing sweet malty caramel like beer with a smooth aftertaste. there was no dominating extract that impinged on the flavor, rather it was quite smooth and drinkable. This beer may lack a little substance and depth but it makes up for that in taste. The character is moderate to small, but the appreciation for such a brew is large.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 Bottle. Beige fingerthick head over a clear dark brown body. Mild aromas of dark malt and caramel with notes of dried dark fruits. Weak flavors; moderately sweet with caramel, wheat and a little roastiness. Also some slight fruity/acidic notes. Surprisingly thin and watery palate. A bit disappointing...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big beige creamy lasting head, black opaque body. Faint acidic wheaty aroma with earthy licorice notes. Taste is light earthy wheat with a bitterish chocolatey aftertaste with notes of wild berries. Decent, but a bit boring. (0.5l bottle.)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. First "hefe weizen -dark" as the label shows. Pours a dark brown, near black with a thick offwhite head. Poured in a weizen glass. A little spice, banana flavorings. Intersting texture, its dark, but drinks fairly light and smooth, almost water-like. I over-expected on this, hoping for a more pronouced flavor, especially after having a simple Widmer Hefe earlier in the day.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2006 I love schneider original, and this was just delicious as well. I see what many people mean when they say it appears a bit ’thin’, but it really grew on me as it warmed up. Mmm chocolate was very prominent for me..coffee? and caramel.
lovely thick head.
