Schneider Weisse Kristall was created by Georg V. Schneider in the 1980’s. This elegant and sparkling wheat beer is not only a great refreshment but can also serve as the perfect alternative to sparkling wine and prosecco when served with a shot of elderberry syrup. Bottle conditioned.

Ingredients: water, wheat malt (50%), barley malt (50%), hops (Magnum, Cascade, Hallertauer Saphir), yeast.

Draft at the restaurant in München. Beautiful, like really, clear golden with rising bubbles replenishing a lasting, lacy white head. Aroma is slight banana, spice, and grain. Mostly dry flavor, just a tad sweet. Banana, wheat, crisp malts. Lighter body, almost impossible not to down it in two minutes. This is a forgotten style, but when you do it well, daaaaamn guuuuurl dat shizz is goood.

matbli (244) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle, pours clear straw colour with strong high white head. Aroma of bananas, wheat, yeast, bread and strong ester notes. Taste is mainly sweet-sour. A bit to watery, but strongly carbonated. It’s ok, but nothing special. Defnitly the weakest beer from the Schneider Weisse series.

RW80 (1930) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2016
(backlog rating) 500ml bottle Appearance: Clear pale golden honey with a nice big three fingers sized head of white foam. Head has a ok retention and does leave nice; lacing. Aroma :malts, wheat, banana, vanilla. Taste: Sweet, banana, sour wheat, lemon and grass tones But all friendly Medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation. Easy drinker but a bit to uncomplex for a Schneider beer.

GoufCustom (1565) - HONG KONG - JAN 9, 2016

500 ml bottle bought at EG Plus Ltd’s booth during the 13th Hong Kong Food Festival 2015 in HKCEC, Wan Chai.

Looks: Translucent pale golden honey colour; Explosive three finger head with crumpety white foam which lasted for 4 minutes; Fair sticky lacing and very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragment malt, with strong banana, vanilla, strong honey, floral, wheaty tartness, caramel, toffee, sugar, cloves, spices, sweet bread, strong yeast, light lemon and light grass.

Taste: Close to light sweet malt, with strong metallic, light banana, caramel, moderate wheaty tartness, phenolic, spices, yeast, moderate lemon, moderate to light bitter hops and quite strong grass.

Body: Close to medium body. Slick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid maltyness in a very smooth background. Sair wheat and light tartness. Notable banana and caramel, yet phenolic and yeast are light. Quite spicy, and solid lemon to round. Really nice!

Hoppiness: Light lemon and light grassy in nose, and much stronger in taste. Bitterness is very notable for an abrupt, moderately astringent malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Creamy and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: Without the bottled yeast, this one stands up just as strong as Schneider’s regular Hefeweiss – impressive looks and head, fruity and wholesome aroma, and the creamy, spicy, hoppy palate. It’s beyond my expectation. A standard for the style. Enjoy!

Butelka, warka do 2016 06 10. Niezla piana ale szybko opada, piwo jasne, slomkowe, rzeczjasna przejrzyste. Niby wszystko na miejscu, banany, kwaskowatosc, slodycz, gozdziki... Ale jednak niezbyt intensywne a zarazem wrazenie slodkisci jest jakies takie chemiczne. Nie jest zle, ale tez specjalnie dobrze tez nie. Moze po prostu pije oczami i mam zakodowane, ze weizen ma byc metny? ;)

500ml bottle, from trade with Werckmeister. Many thanks! Pours clear gold, good white head. Aroma is mild weiss esters. Taste is smooth, clean banana / vanilla. More so than expected being a Kristall. Delicious.

Flaske. Farven er lysgul og skumkronen er høj og hvid. Aromaen er typisk for drikken og det samme er smagen. En god øl.
