My favorite hefeweizen. Very spicy aroma and finish, with the most obvious clove flavor I've ever experienced. Great yeast in this one, if you're a yeast fan. Beautiful tan color, like none I've ever seen. Head stays put for a while. Rich flavored, crisp from the wheat. I'd like more body, but that's not true to style. Great beer.

Cloudy pale yellow. Banana/clove aroma. Good white head. Rich, full bodied and delicious. Like this the best among the German imported wheaties.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I always pour all the yeast of a bottle-conditioned beer into the glass. Yeast... it's not only good, it's good for you!
Murky, pear-colored lager with a huge, frothy, white head to start. Almost fully diminishing and leaves little to no lacework.
The aroma is yeasty and malty with notes of clove, banana, bubblegum and pear.
Well-balanced flavor. Spicy and fruity up front. Lightly astringent on the backside.
Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and very light carbonation. Short, spicy, sweet finish. Pretty darn good for the style.

I like wheat beers, and I enjoyed this one, but something is a little different. Maybe it is the American hops, but I still like the original Schneider Weisse a little better.

Clear bubbly yellow. Aroma has some hay, lemon, wheat, and gasoline. Crisp, with a little bitterness in the middle and finish, but tasting lageresque, unlike their other wheats. Not bad, a good summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep hazed orange color, large white head that mostly diminishes to a small ring, lacing is decent. Aroma is malty with some bread and cookie dough, some lemon, banana and clove in there as well, and a bit of floral hops in the background. Flavor is sweet and doughy in the front, very citric in the middle and end. Medium body, fairly acidic, medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very nice golden color in the pour that is extremely cloudy with an obvious unfiltered look and a huge puffy cloud head. Nice clovey bite in the flavor with some nice citrus highlights, slightly hoppy and spicy rounding out the finish.

Pours cloudy, unfiltered with big head. Aroma of cascade hops, some clove. Flavorful hops finishing spicy. A different hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very unfiltered appearance with a puffy classic schneider head. Aroma is medium hoppy, full of cascade hops. Also in the nose is the traditional banana & clove esters from the belgian hefe yeast. These are not overpowering as in schneider classic. Flavor is moderately hoppy and flavorful. Finishes sweet and spicy. Very unique but terrific.

Strange, light hefe. All of the typical flavors of a weisse. I prefer Schneider's Aventinus to this one though, since it's heavier on the bready wheat and clove flavors. More alcohol as well (though it's a weizen bock).
