2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Held onto a bottle of this for quite some time (for reasons unknown) and decided it might be time to taste it. I became a little hesitant when I cracked it as it failed to pssshhhrt! Poured it into an Aventinus glass, it was relatively lifeless, raising only a thin white pad of foam, that managed to last the length. The body of beer a clean hazy gold with only the lightest amount of fine carbonation popping to the surface. Subtle spicy and grainy nose, sweet bubblegum and overly ripe bananas with a little note of tangy fruit. The aroma was quite pleasant but lacked the oomph of a good hefe, as did the flavour. Thin, watery body, light and spritzy in carbonation, it had an odd plastic feel mid-palate and a light lactic and gluggy feel in the back of the mouth, before finishing off with a short herbal and sweet swallow. Flavours were subtle with only a little of the normal bubblegum and clove-like phenols and fruity esters associated with a good example of the style. A little disappointed as I thought this may top the Weihenstephan and Spaten offerings, but it just lacked in all aspects. May be the higher alcohol content to blame for its lack of body and flavour. Still, a balanced and clean hefe-weizen that was easily quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with average, fairly lasting and lacing, off-white head. Yeasty, wheaty aroma notes of banana, and clove, herbal hoppy overtones with a touch of orange. Taste is moderately sweet wheat malty, yeasty spicy and herbal hoppy, hints of banana, intense notes of clove. Already too rich in content to be called "refreshing". Good.

Das Bio-Weizen ist orange-braun trüb. Geruch nach Banane, aber auch Zitrus. Geschmacklich hebt sich das Bier durch eine deutliche Bitternote ab, die auch Aromen von Grapefruit mitbringt.

Schöne Trübe, leider kein Schaum. In der Nase lecker Banane, ein wenig Gras. Im Trunk süffig, sehr bananig, im Abgang süß, etwas bitter, Zimt. Ausgezeichnet ausgewogenes und dennoch komplexes Weizen.

Fresh and floral beginning. Nice fresh clove, not too fruity with nice herbal hops on a moderate bitter basis. Round and fresh, herbal floral hops also in the clove-like, Weizen-smooth aftertaste. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Humulus et Fermentum, Heisdorf. Pours a hazy golden yellow with typical weizen head and yeast clouds in the glass. Nose is yeasty, cloves, fruits, flour, lemon. Taste is surprisingly bitter and hoppy, followed by malty sweetness. Finish is again bitter, somewhat orangy. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Very interesting weizen, very atypical, but good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the Weisse Brauhaus. Very hazy orange color with big white extremely dense head. Nice hoppiness in addition to the original Weizen base. Aroma hops have been here! Some citrus, maybe litchi. Taste is Weizen with a very green grassy hop kick and a nice bitterness. Perfect silky mouthfeel. A pleasant Frühlingswiese/Grünzeug aftertaste. Nicely balanced, superb drinkability. Probably one of the most interesting Bavarian brews. It?s very different. I would not have thought that Schneider can still surprise me.
