3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2008 Bottled. One of my favorite German Hefe’s. I had it on tap once which was remarkable. This is nice and crisp, good wheat flavor with some bannana and a touch of cantelope aftertaste. This is a really really good Hefeweizen!
Rerated 6/1/08: This is a quinteseential Hefe for me. Although Hefe’s are not m #1 go to style, if this beer is available, I love drinking it. Very enjoyable and refreshing beer.

Bottled. It had a very refreshing fruity taste. It had a strong but sweet citrus flavor to it. Clean finish. Wasn’t like the other hefe-weizens that were old and tasted like soy sauce! A great beer to combat the warm summer!

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.

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.

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.
