Bottle. Pours a murky, dishwater shade of amber with a huge frothy white head. Big banana and malt wheat aromas. There is a slight plastic smell. Clean wheat flavor with some fruit notes. Pleasantly spicy with a clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity coriander aroma. Copper bronze color with a very nice fluffy head. The head is quick to dissapate. The taste provides a bit of a sour apple tingle with a fruity spice pop. The aroma and the taste work in perfect harmony. Excellent palate with a lingering smotth sweet taste on the buds. Very easy to drink and exceptional hefe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 500 ml bottle - pours a dull copper colour, similar to unpasteurised honey, with diminishing white head. Darker than most hefeweizens Iíve seen. Aroma of banana, yeast and some spice, with faint hints of green apple. Taste is very nice, banana, pineapple, a little nutmeg and wheat. Long, bready finish. Full body makes this a beer to be enjoyed year-round - not just for summer like many hefeweizens.

Coriander, cloves and a hint of ginger and lemon completes the aroma of this beer. Fruity, floral on a nice yeasty finish. Nice looking body, nothing spectacular.

Darker brown than most hefe-weizen, pours with a modest but persistant head. Good lacing down the glass. Flavor is combo of light grassy with followups of bananas and spice. Nice clean finish. Overall a very good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 500 ml Draught, Hotel Gasthof Sonne, Neuendettelsau. More deep estery fruits in the aroma than has the *Bottled* Schneider Weisse Original , of course nowhere near the richness of the Aventinus Doppel. Moderately rich malty taste and finish is clean, just a note rounder than the bottledl. Nice, everyday Dunkeles Weizen for Bavarians to toss back in quantity.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle, now available in Norway (Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget). Cloudy / muddy brownish colour, large and lasting off-white head. Lovely hefeweizen aroma, full of ripe bananas and cloves, also notes of other spices, leather and tropical fruits. Flavour is zesty and mildly spicy, some citrus, and even decent hops for a h.w. Very nice!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazed, muddy and caramel gold in color with a pillowy white cotton head and perfect lacing. Grinded cloves sweetly caress the nose with peppered bananas, zest of lemons and fluffy pastries borderlining baguettes. That clove-spice smell is cunning and alluring. Flavor fulfills on the spiced banana platform, drawing out pepper, nutmeg and cloves. Of course itís effervescent, but when it fades, it carries the trademark lemon sourness to lovely esteem. Some rind parleys with buttery orange meringue-saturated graham crust. Lemony sorghum imparts a bakerís chewing sense at the back palate level, most prominently in the finish. Very well balanced and a great benchmark beer for the style. Pasties and natural lemon yogurt sweet cream comprise the final goodbye.
