This one has a great black peppery, wheaty, yeasty, bubblegum taste and aroma. Very complex and refreshing. Well hidden alcohol also. Recommended highly.

Wheaty lemon, some alcohol & bubblegum. Nicely sweet - honey, lemon, yeast, tart finish. Quite smooth (this is an old bottle) some oakiness

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nice golden color with a few yeast particals suspended throughout the brew.Light bannana and a little bandaid aroma with a slight spice side.bandaid flavor with some bannana and spice,nice carbonation.The band aid really seems to get in the way of this brew.Could just be a bad bottle or something because iíve never run into it before for this style.As it warms the bannana comes out a little better but then so does the Band aid.Iíll rerate it after i get another bottle that might be better then this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lots of yeast in this botle. A cloudy gold with an orange tint. Head dies quickly unlike some of my favorite Weizens. USDA Organic? Thatís different. Peppery clove aroma with a slight perfume floral note. Body is medium and smooth with a creamy finish. Slight chalk from yeast sediment.Flavor is nice. Wheat malt gives a fresh flavor and a bit sweet. Clean and nice but I think I prefer the regular Weizen better. Overall a decent brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy deep straw body with abundant carbonation and a heavy fine particulate load. Thick, soft, cottony white head. Aroma of fried bananas, cloves, fresh bread, yeast, and spice. Flavor of fruity esters, light spice, phenols, and Noble hops and a touch of citrus. Moderate fullness on the palate. A fairly standard hefe, but good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Subtle, attractive aroma of banana peel, orange and deep clove along with an unexpected spicyness.
Hoppier, bigger in body, drier and more complex than the standard Schneider Weisse. Appealing, solid range of flavors including clove, vanilla, banana and quite a few citrusy fruits. The yeast pour brings delicate mustiness, less fruitiness and more vanilla.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I donít know if all of this beer is organic, but the bottle I got was. It was stamped all over the bottle and cap. This stuff was great. It poured with a huge frothy head and it was unfiltered, so I had all the delicious dead yeasts and stuff clouding up the beer. This is what a Wheat beer should be like. The realest beer Iíve probably ever had. Like something you could make in your basement (it smells a little like a basement), but only if you were really good at brewing. Pick this stuff up if you want to know what beer is.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours out a hazy, light orange color, pale, clear yellow at the bottom, yielding a full, bubbly snow-white head.
Aroma: Huge citrus, lemon and orange, sugar and spice, great hits of banana and clove, plus a little vanilla on the side, with an additional, and much appreciated bready/yeasty flavor. Fresh, wide open, and airy.
Mouth-filling texture, very tasty, flavor takes over, floods, and refreshes that entire cavern of the tastebuds. A trifle sour, but still mitigatingly sweet and fruity. Banana flavor continues, and the complex variety of tastes keeping company in the glass makes for very rewarding consumption. Finish is just long enough.
Much lighter, in taste and mouthfeel, as well as color, than the "Original", but in itís own, a hallmark of this approach to the hefe weizen. Certainly the kind of beer American weizen brewers try to emulate.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Not a very good beer from this otherwise great brewery. I did enjoy it, but it didn?t really convert me from grabbing an Aventinus or other fine Schneider products, like Rob Schneider. Mine did say Organic tho. And I've seen some that are not organic.
