COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

On tap. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a moderate short-lasting head. Light aroma of citrus and apples. Flavor was lemon and a bit of malt. Higher than usual carbonation. My favorite part of this beer was the awesome white porcelain glass it was served in. I tried to talk the restaurant into selling me one, but they wouldn’t do it.

500ml Bottle: I saved this one for two weeks waiting for the right time to try it, and sadly, I might have pumped it up a bit high. Hefeweizen is my second favourite style of beer and I’ve managed to try a good number, and this doesn’t rank at the top for me. Typical aroma of cloves, coriander, citrus, and banana with a good pour that came darker than I expected. The head left quicker than I’m used to for the genre. Exceptionally harsh mouthfeel out of the carbonation and pepper, definitely not something to down quickly. Flavour, outside the surprising pepper, was traditional for the style. I’d have it again, but I’d rather have a few others, including Schneider’s own Aventinus.

Pours a yellow-orange with an off-white lasting head. Very carbonated and refreshing. Strong floral aroma with a slighly bitter taste.

TheJester (2051) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2006
Cloudy brown - darker than expected. Moderate creamy head - lasts. Light and drinkable. Cloves, and a nice balance of sweet and bitter. Leaves a cool peppery aftertaste. Great beer.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours yellow-brown with very quickly disappating off-white head. Nose is pretty good-banana and clove, trace of malt. Flavor shows initial clove and mild malt sweetness, but is thin and not particularly satisfying. Rather bubbly, watery palate, and slightly musty wheat aftertaste. Neh.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2006
500ml bottle. Cloudy burnt orange color with a frothy, bumpy and substantial white head. Aroma was of sweet wheat malt, banana bread, juicyfruit gum and maybe pineapple. Palate was light to medium with very small tingly carbonation. Flavor of lemon and juicyfruit gum with some nuttiness. Sour lemon-herbal pastille finish.

(0.5L Bottle) Pours hazy orange with a nice head. Yeast and banana aromas and tastes that are typical to many of the sort. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Ron (2876) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2006
One bottle from BOTW. I was surprised by the amber color. All my Weissbier’s have been on the lighter side so far. Still had a large white head. I enjoyed mine with a lemon, so the lemon aroma and flavor was dominant. Many streams of bubbles raising to the top, kept me mesmerized. I enjoyed the refreshing brew immensely.

lethe (177) - New York, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Bold amber colored pour with foamy thick head. Nose is dominated by clove and has that appealing hefe quality. Medium carbonation. Typical hefe flavors and character from here on out with obvious clove/banana interplay. Refreshing, unique in appearance and impact, this is a solid, stand-by hefe.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Pours a brilliant amber color, and has a wonderful foamy head. Heavy carbonation. Smells decent, although somewhat weak on the nose. Taste is typical of most german hefe’s. Some clove, banana, bubble gum. The color is somewhat misleading as the beer feels pretty light on the palate. Taste nearly identical to Franziskaner, but twice the price. Pretty decent.
