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.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From brewers droop, Bristol
500 ml bottle [BBE: 2015.08.14]
Blood alc: 0
Pours hazy Amber with a very white head of medium Fine bubbles. The Big coriander and spice whiff promises excitement. Flavour is slightly sweet with a tangy background and overall ?raw? flavour which works perfectly with the sweetness. The hop bitterness is unshy, although only as present as would be ideal and balances the sweet malty character perfectly. The end brings a lingering banana and fruit taste with hints of toffee which is most welcome and even maybe more pleasant, as it?s so gentle, than when the beer is actually on the tongue.
I just can?t really fault this as it?s a fantastic example of it?s style and shouldn?t really be any different. The only reason it doesn?t get 100% is because it?s not as exciting as my perfect, unrivallable beer would be. Perhaps my favourite Schneider so far but I?d just have to compare it side by side with Aventinus to make sure! ;)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Dark orange to brown, cloudy body, with a big, quite stable, creamy, white head.
Aroma of wheat, yeast, spices, orange, banana and citric hops.
Tastes of wheat, spices, banana, orange, some vanilla, slight alcohol and even more fruity, citric and quite bitter hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes quite bitter, citric, zesty, spicy and a bit wheaty.
Tasty! A slightly stronger and surprisingly hoppy Hefeweizen. Doesn’t drink as easy as other beers of this style, but you get loads of full flavours instead. Another great, characteristic Weizen by Schneider Weisse!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think I may have misinterpreted this one somehow. I could´t find myself enjoying it. Unbalanced, a bit to sweet, and not refreshing enough to make me really want to enjoy it on a hot summer day. Also a bit too heavy body, and 500ml bottle is a bit overload.

Mętne równomiernie, lekko złote, babelków gazu brak, piana bardzo słaba, nietrwała, po zaniku nie zostaje po niej najmniejszy ślad. Aromat drożdżowo-pszeniczno-bananowy, lekko czuć świeżość owoców. W smaku pełne, az rozchodzi się równomiernie po całej jamie ustnej. W smaku rześkie, goryczkowe. Lekko ściągające, goryczka zalega.
