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.

Not much different than the Paulaner Hefe-Weizen I just had, though a little darker in complexion with less head and less . . . fruity a flavor. Again, not especially interesting.

sunevdj (3310) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2005 On Tap. Pours a hazy amber with a dissappearing head. Fruity aromas with plum and banana and yeast. A bit too sour. Sour finish with banana flavor. OK CO2 level.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 24, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Combined rating from US bottle and Munich brauhaus - Pours dark cloudy brownish amber with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma is phenolic with notes of dusty yeast, clove, caramel, alcohol, and spice. Taste is lightly sweet and yeasty: notes of apples, cloves, dark bread. Finish is tart and moderately acidic, lightly sweet. This beer is a slightly different take on the style, and it’s darker than a typical hefe. Delicious when fresh and on tap, but still enjoyable in the bottle.

JorisPPattyn (8125) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2005
Fully hazy, foxy-chestnut with olive shine; small but tenacious creamy head. Banana, cloves and dark candi-sugar aromas. Citrussy acidity, obvious wheat. Roasted malts contribute making it much drier than the Helles. No excess sweetness here, except a litte restsweetness retronasal. Malty dry, full bodied. Dry and fusels in the aftertaste. Very good - the original N°1 in Weizenbierland is still great. Only - to me this ought to be called a Dunkel Weizen...

(500 ml bottle: $2.89 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) All these years drinking good beer, and I’m finally getting around to sampling "The Original" German Hefe-Weizen. Hmm, not at all what I was expecting. First, the color is considerably darker than I imagined. It’s actually a dark, caramely amber, and only slightly hazy until I finally can swirl and pour in the remaining contents of the bottle. At that point, the beer is cloudy, but chunks of sediment precipitate out. It looks more like a Dunkelweizen to me. And the head is all wrong. Off-white, very fizzy, and the bubbles dissipate as rapidly as soda, leaving a pretty dead-looking beer. Well, the flavor is more to my expectations, with definite banana-like esters, bubble gum, and yeast in the forefront, but the slightly caramely maltiness is again throwing me for a loop. There’s a modest sourness in the finish, which helps to balance the beer. In the nose, I get banana, clove, and uhm, apple? This is one bizarre Hefeweizen. Medium bodied, and well-carbonated despite the strange head action. I think I need to try this again because this beer just seems all wrong. Or maybe I just need to ditch my preconceived notions of what a German Hefeweizen is supposed to taste like?

SudsMcDuff (6331) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Pours a beutiful amber-orange colour, with a great looking head, has a pleasing and surprising non offending smell, good solid but delicous yet subtle taste, this ones smooth and flavourfully enjoyable, at the end has floaties so watch out, but I recommend this even if your not a big hefe fan, this might help you change your mind!

Bottle poured caramel with a big thick white head. Aroma is yeast and banana. Flavor is yeast, banana and fruit with a big yeast and dark fruit finish.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2005
The original hefeweizen is still the best and most unique. While many well-made weizens are nearly indistinguishable, Schneider Original has the drinkability of a standard hefeweizen crossed with the chocolate malt/caramel malt color and complexity of some dunkel weizens. Banana esters are much less prevalent in favor of a more spicy clove yeast character. A perfect beer for a hot summer day (or any other).

Bottle, North Bar, Leeds. Dark amber wheat beer with some apple and nutty flavours. Also some spiciness in the palate and on the end. Nutty finish. Nice.

Nice and light with mild banana, clove, citrus scents and flavors. Very enjoyable.
