3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange brown cloudy, almost muddy color with solid white foam head. Wheat and light hop flavors in the nose. The taste is super calm and milky with fresh grass hop notes in nice balance with the wheat character of the beer. Calm and light alcoholic aftertaste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy honey-like colour. Tall rocky head. Good retention. Very spicy nose with floral notes. Banana only in background. Honey. Nice smell. Light to medium body. Oily texture. Honey, clove, floral & spicy hops in taste. Phenols also present. Light to medium hoppy bitterness. Very smooth. It’s not a typical Hefe. It’s much better than a typical Hefe. Perfect.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle as “Schneider Weisse Tap 4 Mein Grünes” bought at EG Plus Ltd’s booth during the 13th Hong Kong Food Festival 2015 in HKCEC, Wan Chai.
Looks: Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; One finger head with white foam which lasted for 2 minutes; Very good sticky lacing and fizzy small carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragment malt, with strong banana, strong vanilla, light pineapples, strong honey, fairly strong wheaty tartness, caramel, light toffee, sugar, strong cloves, spices, bread, strong yeast, light lemon and strong grass.
Taste: Mid to light sweet strong malt, with caramel, floral, strong wheaty tartness, strong molasses, strong phenolic, cloves, strong spices, strong yeast, lemon, strong bitter hops and very sharp grass.
Body: Close to medium body. Thick and smooth palate.
Mouth Feel: Strong maltyness in a rich and smooth background. Strong wheat and tartness. Fruity ester is close to minimal, but malty caramel and floral hops taste abound. Lots of nice sweetness and clovey spices. Not as yesty as most Hefeweiss, but good lemon to round. Very nice!
Hoppiness: Light floral, strong honey, spices, lemon and grass in nose. Much the same but with much stronger grass in taste. Bitterness is strong for a lasting, high astringent bitter sweet finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Rich and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: After Tap 1’s disappointment, this organic Tap 4 really kickass: rich smooth body, strong maltyness, big sweetness and strong Cascade hoppiness in floral and bitter grass. Only a couple steps from being a nice Weizenbock, we need strong Hefeweiss like this one. Lovely!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tolles, frisches Weizen.
Wunderbare Hopfennote, weizentypisch wenig bitter.
Viele Zitrusfrüchte im Aroma und Geschmack.
Das Malz bildet eine schöne Grundlage, ist aber nicht zu intensiv.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: cloudy medium gold with heavy lees, a short, short-lived ivory head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: yeasty wheat, apricot, clove. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter, light tart. (5/10) Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, mild tart finish. (3/5)
OK, this one is probably way too old. My defence is, it took some research to puzzle out the date code. (Two lines:“12.145 3”, and “0227 2724”. I’m guessing it’s a Julian code for the 145th day of 2012.) So, I’m guessing it’s more than three years old - way too old for the style. I considered not reviewing it, but screw it: if you’re not gonna put a human readable date code on your bottle, that’s your decision, live with the consequences. Not terrible as it stands, and I suspect it’s a lot better fresh, but there it is. (11/20)

Aroma: sweat malt, ethers, some spices (cloves, nutmeg).
Taste: light swettness with some bitterness and astrigency, light sourness.
