Un peu comme la Schneider Weisse Original, mais avec une note citronnée plus intense. Magnifique visuellement, elle a des notes de bananes mais sans exagération. Légèrement poivrée. Une très bonne bière.

At Schneider tap take-over with Douberd. Found this the best Schneider that evening, overall. Lasting creamy foam head, strong grass aroma and taste. Loved it. (Velp 201502)

Grumlig mörk orange nästan brun öl med fet vit krona. Älskar veteöl och det här är inget undantag, riktigt bra! Doftar sött och vete, jäst, malt, frukt med bla lite banan. Smak är relativt lik doft. Mild men smakrik, bra sötma, beska och eftersmak. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barwa: złota, może delikatnie w kierunku ciemnozłote, zmętnione. Piana: biała, obfita, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, trwała. Zapach: intensywny banan i goździk. Smak: bardzo orzeźwiające, głównie wyczuwalne nuty goździka, bardzo przyjemna goryczka o przyprawowym charakterze. Wysycenie: jak na styl przystało wysokie.

Bottle. Pours murky orange with thin white head. Wheat beer aroma. This is probably a solid wheat beer choice but it's not my style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No surprise that another Schneider weisse beer is delish, but this is really unique. Lacks the typical banana and clove heavy aroma and taste. Much more dry and hoppy. Not bitter hops but dry and crispy. Really enjoyable!

#4400. 500 ml. bottle @ home from Dranken Geers. Bottled on 27/09/2014. Clear golden, solid egg-white head, one finger big. Looks like something out of a beer commercial. Nose is fluffy banana &air refresher lemon, light ginger (interesting), very fruity DE yeast. Taste of DE yeast, banana, faintly floral, air refresher lemon, ginger, faint lemon hops, faintest of candy sweetness that invites you to drink more. There is something utterly drinkable about this one. Light wheat body. I just could drink this forever. Quite a big bit better than the Original for me. This isn’t phenomenal or anything but this is the definition of a delicious & infinitely quaffable beer.

Im Auftritt eher unspektakulär überrascht dieses Weißbier vor allem am Gaumen. Man merkt im Abgang den höheren Alkoholgehalt und die Komplexität einer einfach runden und gelungenen Weißbierspezialität.

Schneider’s regular hefeweizen (TAP 7) is one of my all-time favorite examples of the style. From what I can tell, Weisen Edel-Weisse (TAP 4) appears to be more or less the same recipe, but brewed with all-organic ingredients. Maybe because it’s organic or maybe it’s because this bottle was about five months old at the time, but this beer isn’t as good as the regular edition. Not that it’s bad, in fact, it’s got all the things I prefer in the style, just not as strong as I’d prefer.

I poured a 500ml bottle into a weizen glass. It was bottled on 8/2/14 and cost $4.29 ($0.25 per ounce).

Appearance: Dark golden hue; only slightly hazy (due to the age of the bottle, a lot of the yeast was caked to the bottom of the bottle). Plenty of visible spastic carbonation. Pours to a large, white, foamy head which retains well but doesn’t leave much lacing.

Smell: Milder than most, with the standard banana bread aroma, though it seems to have more of a spice character than usually found in the style.

Taste: The best way to describe the palette here would be to picture a typical authentic German hefeweizen and then weaken it a little. I’d probably chalk the mildness up to the fact the bottle was rather old at the time. I’d like to think a fresher serving would be much more robust. Also, instead of relying heavily on the banana character from the yeast esters, it ops for Noble hop spice. There’s notes of lemonpeel or saison-like black pepper, which is nice, but it’s still too mild. What’s interesting about this brew is that it’s actually made with Cascade hops – an American varietal. They seem to impart a subtle grassy character to the beer, but don’t do much in the way of bitterness or piney flavor (nor should they considering the style). Overall, this is a fine brew, but this brewery makes better examples of the style.

Drinkability: Schneider Weisen Edel-Weisse is refreshing while in the mouth, and finishes clean, which is nice. Though it should have much more body and robustness for a beer with a 6.2% ABV. This drinks and feels like something much more overtly sessionable. In fact, the thinness of the body and the mildness of the palette is a bit distracting, honestly. Still, it’s an easy beer to drink and a single serving is satisfying.
