Deep and complex – for big and relaxing moments by the fire.

Dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock with a creamy fine head. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromes. Full-bodied and warming, with a well-balanced and smooth finish. The ideal companion for hearty roast meat, venison and also fruity chocolate desserts, “Kaiserschmarrn” (pancakes), “Elisenlebkuchen” (christmas cookies) or blue cheese.

Oldest wheat doppelbock of Bavaria. Since 1907. 18.5°

Murky reddish brown, dense white head; aroma of sweet malt, candy fruits and booze; taste of caramel, Christmas cake, marmalade with a hint of the usual banana and clove wheat beer staples, perhaps some cherries in there too; a full mouthfeel and a boozy finish; a somewhat decadent, complex winter wheat treat.

wolffish (291) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
L’alcool, le bois et les raisons secs dominent le nez. Il y a un peu de banane, des figues et des prunes bien mûres en bouche. Excellente, et sans défaut je dois bien l’avouer.

Keogh (91) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Barwa ciemno brązowa (herbaciana), piany mało i szybko opada. Aromat przjyemny, złożony i intensywny, mamy przejrzałe banany, rodzynki, śliwki suszone i lekki aromat rumu. Aromat pokrywa się ze smakiem, słodycz obecna ale nie za duża, lekka kwaskowatość i niska goryczka, wszystko to razem bardzo dobrze gra i powoduje ze piwo mimo swojego kalibru jest dosyć pijalne i nie jest aż tak ciężkie. Wysycenie średnie - ale nie przeszkadza, dość treściwe. Kolejne piwo z Schneider Weise które dla mnie jest genialne.

Sebilinz (726) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle. Brown body with fast disappearing tan head. Aroma is malts with banana with ripe fruits and hints caramel malts. Taste is sweet malts with some fruits. Aftertaste is sweet malts with some bitterness and hints of malts. Nice one.

Maris (1085) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2015
From a 500ml bottle on 27/3/2015 (bottle labelled Tap 6). Pours a cloudy reddy brown with a small to medium head. Has a powerful aroma of ripe banana, with some dark fruit also in the mix.In the mouth, it’s sweet and inviting, with banana, plums, and some caramel set off against some pronounced wheaty, spicy notes. There is just a hint of bitterness to counter the dessert like elements. The palate is silky and a touch creamy, with the carbonation average to lively. This is an absolutely delicious, complex yet subtle brew, and definitely the finest German beer I’ve downed to date.

ordybill (412) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Pure heaven, great smell of yeast, caramel, honey and malt Appearance- This is a dark murky brown brew with swirling sediment and a small off-white head. Taste- A masterpiece! I love this flavor, well balanced fruit and spice with malt and yeast. perfectly blended. Palate- This is a medium to heavy beer with moderate carbonation. Has a nice semi-dry finish.

C’est une grande bière. C’est par contre dommage que Schneider aille changé ces étiquettes, je préférais les anciennes. Cette bière se marie à merveille avec une bonne viande ou un boeuf bourguignon.

cogitus (1) - - MAR 15, 2015 does not count
Have enjoyed ’young’ ordinary bottles and the paper-wrapped brewery-aged vintages 2009, 2008, 2006 & 2004 over the past year. All are quite enjoyable but the 06 & 04 are remarkable. 04 has nearly lost all carbonation (6 bottles so far) but retains all the dark fruity caramelly wheaty goodness, just more mature and sophisticated. Cellar temp into a snifter the 06 & 04 are perfection to sip and enjoy. Stick to the 06 or younger if your beer must have carbonation, but if not and you can get the 04 enjoy the even deeper character that develops.

jice (148) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
Complexe à définir. Belle couleur rouge foncée, rubis comme j’ai pu lire ailleurs. Alcool présent au nez, bien caché par les nombreux arômes: banane, fruits secs... bel éaquilibre global. Très intéressante.

nihtila (1158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
13.6.2014. Hazy brown, thick light brown head, dirty looking. Aroma of malts, slight banana and raisin. Taste of nicely balanced malts with still raisin, caramel sweetness, slight tastes of weizenbier banana and yeast. Quite heavy for a weizenbock as abv implies. Nice.
