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.

(Bottle 50 cl) Cloudy, dark golden - must be one of the darkest German Hefes. Fresh and lightly acidic fruitiness with a - for a Hefe - surprisingly bitter finish. 160300

A weak, caramel-brown with large, plaster-chunks of sediment and virtually no head. Aromas were rather weak, with banana, lemon, honey and cola. A moderately sweet start with a mild, bitter middle and light acidity to end. Dry and spicy. There are better hefes.

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!

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).

(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?

Deep amber color to the body with a good head. Aroma of banana and clove. Well balanced flavor of fermented fruit. Was clean on the palate. But the last swig it tasted like someone just put an alcohol wipe on my tounge. Decent beer.

Robe blonde voilée aux reflets cuivrés surmontée d’une mousse blanche en dentelle. Arômes de bananes, d’agrumes et de levures. Saveurs de bananes et de levures. Belle présence du corps.
