My first reaction: wow this is dark! Classic banana aroma and huge head with this one. The flavor is all the way German HW ... banana sweet, fruity and strong. Most classically standard HW in the US ...

My favorite Hefeweizen. It's got a lot of that great wheat beer flavor. It's also very light and refreshing.

On-Tap: Color is a brownish gold cloud of opaqueness with a bit of orangish peach skin highlights coming through more so near the bottom of the glass with a solid small tight but puffy white head that stuck around awhile and didn't have any lacing during the consumption. Aroma is solid lemon citrus, dullish but bright, mixed with some orange, grapefruit and banana with a ton of clove filling up the nose favorably with each wonderful wiff. A solid spicy and citrusy smellin' hefe. Taste is alot more of the same notions carrying over from the smell with lots of citrusy dulled lemon and clove, smooth and full of energy with notes in other citrusy fruits of orange and grapefruit, and some banana and jolly rancher-like candy notes coming in towards the finish. The feel is a short but fun ride of creamy fullness at first then playing back and forth with a lively texture and carbonated spritzyness thats very easy, smooth and lightly crisp. Heavenly drinkable and a solid hefe.

Has a fine malty background, topped with the traditional coriander-aroma. Real good.

A very full head with extremely big bubbles gradually subsides to a thin white layer. The liquid is dark amber, with some brown accents. Smelling this beer tells you exactly what to expect – both the nose and flavours show huge spice and citrus notes. Some additional floral/honey flavours show through as well. In aromatherapy, citrus and certain spices are used for their rejuvenating effect. The same can be said for Schneider Weisse – one drink and you feel alive. With all the carbonation, however, more than one’s going to make you feel bloated.

I thought this beer rocked. Big fluffy white head but didn't last. Slight banana, slight spiciness and moderately yeasty. Very good stuff.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Nice wheat beer with small head. I would have like a bigger head that would have stayed longer... Light brown colour. Very refreshing beer for the summer without being too distinct or exceptionnal.

This beer was fairly clean for a German wheat beer. There was a slight bit of acidity to it, a hint of banana flavor as well as a bit of clove. Lightly fruity as well, which left one with a quite refreshing beer in hand. A good drinking summer beer.
