3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didn’t know what to expect from this brewer. Typical German wheat appearance---nice thick head, hazy golden color---though much more yeast particles floating around, not to mention the mud at the bottom of the bottle. Not alot of aroma though, which was a bit disappointing. The taste is grainy, with a hint of banana and spice but again not as much as I would expect, considering this IS a German wheat. The taste soured quickly to me, though not in the ’cheap beer’ way, but sour nonetheless. My mouth is still sour, in fact. So, it may be true to the style, but it doesn’t finish as well as others I’ve tried. Too watery and lemony and/or acidic for my liking. That taste just didn’t blend well with all the yeast in the brew. It isn’t bad, just not my favorite German wheat.

Hazy copper color with an average sized white head that diminishes quickly. Aromas of yeast over a backdrop of noble hops. Flavors are interesting. Light malt and yeast up front with a sweet, fruity middle and a bitter and lemon/citric acid finish. Body is average. A good Weisse, but not their best product.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2004 Head is initially average sized, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with strong notes of banana and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Newer bottle with the organic crap all over it. Seems that organic beers are often grainy, and only sometimes great (my experience with Pinkus-Mueller has been the same...when they’re on, they’re great, otherwise, not very good at all). This is a grainy example.

Definitely my favorite wheat beer. Nice and fruity/yeasty aroma, cloudy/gold hue and a refreshing fruit feel. This is ony of my favorite early summer beers.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2003 RE-RATE: Another excellent beer from Schneider. This beer is right up there with the Weihenstephaner weisses and Ayinger weisses.

A good wheat beer; clean and crisp. I think this is great at room temperature, but then again I drink all my beers at room temperature. Well not all of them, if I think that a beer may actually make me puke (like Keystone Light) it needs to be ice cold. But then again I don’t drink beer like that unless I need to rate a popular beer to set some people straight. Or unle...wait this is about Schneider Weisse not about crap. This is great beer! Have one now.

Very nice hefe. Spicy in the right places and yeasty to all ends. Watch that gas build up in your intestines after downing all that yeast. My wife won’t let me sleep in the bed if I drink this beer.
