This is a full bodied wheat beer with a nice balance of hops, malt and yeast. Make sure to swirl up enough yeast for the pour. Very mild bitterness, but a pleasant clove spice in the finish. Doesn’t quite match up to the mouthfeel of the Weihenstephaner Hefe-Weissbier, but puts most American wheats to shame.

Wheat beer is my favorite style of beer. Ive tried many different types of wheat beer from countries around the world. This one has to be my #1 (very close) over all the rest. The taste and carbination of this is exactly what I look for in the best wheat beer. Ayinger brau weisse or Maisels weisse are others that is very similar to this one which I enjoy a lot but not quite as much as schneider weisse. This one is harder for me to find and costs more so I usually buy hacker pschorr,paulaner,ludwig which I love but not like schneider or the others I mentioned. This is just my opinion on how I love to taste wheat beer like this does. This beers evil twin is also the best dark wheat beer Ive had also.

<font color=’#00ff99’>This is a fine beer. I dunno how those Krauts do it, but there is something sublime about this. I didn’t gets much banana, more custard tart or something.</font>

Orange color with fluffy white head and a spicey nose. Stronger malts than other German weisse beers, but still has that same clove/banana flavors. Maybe a little thin in body, and the flavors seem to weaken as it warms. Decent weisse, but I’d pick the Hacker-Pschorr or Paulaner over this.

Aroma has a bit of plum and maybe a little alcohol toward the end. Flavor is what you would expect in a very good German wheat like Hacker-Pschorr or Franziskaner, but I find the malts here a bit darker and that some substantial effervescence plays a significant role in framing the malt. Excellent.

Bread-like nose, cloves, big. Dirty brown, cloudy color. Big fizzy head but with no retention. Wheat, banana tastes, but a bad aftertaste. OK balance. Pretty good HW.

Yeah, it is becoming clear for me..I love German Wheat - I realise it. This one is great. Banana, yeast and vanilla aroma. Light dirty brown color with hints of orange. I tasted chocolate, yeast and banana and it also had a little bitter finish. Fullmouth but a bit fin.
