3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Nice label that evokes the world of the past, when men in straw hats sipped perfectly pleasant, but not the kind of thing yosteins under their handlebar moustaches. Wow, this has a big fluffy head. It goes down smooth, then fizzy. Nice on the palate, and it is organic too. Unfortunately, it weakens a bit after this promising start, since the flavor turns out to be a little bland for a hefe. It is dry and wheaty, very pleasant overall. This appears to be an export bottle, not sure if it is the same stuff you get in Deutschland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Exceptional hefeweisen. Usually taste is bad when see organi claim but this is nice. Low acidity, high carbonation, clean crisp mineral taste. Typical yeasty, banana, clove taste with a more unusual hint of pine.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Cloudy, orange colour with a big foamy, minimal off-white head. Sweet wheat-malty nose with citrus (ripe oranges), banana, a moderate phenolic touch (cloves, vanilla) and even vague hints of hops in the background. Moderately sweet flavour with a light acidity, medium to light bodied, a bit overcarbonated mouthfeel. Good wheat character, yeasty and slightly fruity taste with balancing phenolic spice; light sweet, wheaty and a bit fizzy finish with spicy notes and a piney hops shining through. Complex aroma, decent taste; really a nice one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a medium off-white head and lots of bubbles chasing the glass. Nose is banana and clove ester with a medium wheat component. Flavor is initial banana and clove, well balanced, with a rush of strong wheat flavor. Very good wheat taste. I like it lots.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2010 500 mL bottle. Translucent copper-orange with a small head. Smells much like Schneider Weisse Original. Maybe a little milder. Flavour is definitely milder; less yeast, more citrus. You get some of the Hallertauer hops at the end. No alcohol presence. Body is medium-thin. Quite heavily carbonated. Only a disappointment when compared to other Schneider products.
Re-rate. Getting much more of a hop presence than I did last time, particularly a pine-citrus C-hop presence, from middle to finish. Not strong, but strong for the style. There’s is also a really nice brown spice presence at the end, which fills out the body. Much better than I remember.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber with a soapy white head. The aroma has fairly bready traits, lots of banana esters, light citrus and an overall richness. Medium / thick body with quite a bit of sharper carbonation. The flavor starts with an excessive amount of peppery spice, banana and sweet thick wheat. The finish adds even more spice. This beer is okay, but not up to the brewery’s standards.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ML Bottle-Cloudy golden straw color w/a moderate white fizzy head. Light sweet flavor of wheat, banana, bread dough, citrus, peach, floral hops, cane sugar, & a touch of spice. Very smooth & fresh, kind of made me think of a quality Belgian. Like their Schneider & Brooklyner, but less aggressivly hopped, just had a touch. Easy drinking brew, you could really but a few of these away. This one was a winner.
