3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden brown color beneath a massive foamy white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and light spices. Refreshing wheat with the slightest tartness. Crisp finish with subtle hints of clove. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber/brown in color with a frothy head, this has a clean, light citric aroma with a hint of grassiness. Plenty of body regardless of bottle size and the time it takes you to drink it. Full, floral mouth-feel with a slightly sweet finish. A truly refreshing drink. Keep some in your refridgerator for when good friends stop by.

Ah yes! The white label... unlike denisons, this is a bit darker almost orange in colour. It’s so clean with honey and floral tones... I am a big fan of the Schneider family of brews. This one is just as excellent!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color here is not what the average beer drinker expects a hefe to have, but this is the Bavarian style. A muddy dark orangish, nearly brown near the crown, lighter at the foot. The head on it is full,lush,voluminous, white. Aroma is light, sweet, soft, delicious, delightful, focusing on flavors of citrus (lemon), honey, flowers, and mild spices. Texture and mouthfeel is extraordinarily smooth, with a graininess up front that fades fast.
Clean, brisk, uncomplicated, easily drunk, and yet brimming with taste. Substantial body, perfect malt, and a swift, but recurring, bright and lively finish. Citrusy hops return again and again to delight the tastebuds.
A very flavorful weizen, and a perfect brew for mealtime, hot Julytime, feellikehavinganotherbeertime.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My tastebuds are broken. I have yet to taste any Hefe-Weisse that tastes anything like a banana. This one didn’t either, but everyone else, as usual, thought it did.
Smelled clean with faint traces of earthy hay and alcohol. Poured wonderfully. Much darker than the usual hefe. This one was a watery brown color.
Familiar yeasty hay flavors. Very light and watery finish.
Mouthfeel is thin and bubbly with abundant carbonation.
Not overwhelmed, but I’d drink it again if someone else was paying.

Poured cloudy amber...smells of cloves, malt, banana...very malty right off the bat, then spicy and smooth...not very wheaty...but the finish is dry and yeasty...definately not your generic wheat...
