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.

Pours a hazy copper with a huge, creamy, dense, ivory head. Darker than most hefes Iíve tasted. Smells deeply of clove and banana with persistent hints of bubblegum. Tastes of a nice blend of banana, bubblegum and clove. Lemony with other citrus flavors throughout (orange and light grapefruit). All nicely supported by sweet wheat malt. The mouth is a bit thin but overall a surprisingly good Hefeweizen. Flavorful, refreshing warm weather beer.

Incubus1981 (12) - Michigan, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pours much darker than I expected from my experience with other German weisse beers. Little head, no lacing. Aroma is banana and a bit of spice. The flavor is similar but with a nice tart edge and a hint of raisin flavor in the background. Wheaty flavor that I expected was only present as an aftertaste. Not like other hefe-weizens Iíve had, and Iíd have to say that I like this one the best of the ones Iíve tried. Highly recommended.

GregClow (2937) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Hazy chestnut-brown with a big, rich head. Sweet and spicey aroma, with some banana bread notes. Flavours of yeast, citrus, banana & malt. Crisp & well-balanced bitterness in the finish. Fantastic stuff that I really should drink more often. Thanks for Andicus for this bottle.

Bottled. Hazy nut brown colour, hugefoamy head. Sweet wheaty aroma with hints of malt. Wheat and malt in flavour with some hoppy notes. Wasnít as sweet as I thought. Good hoppy level. A bit different from other weissbiers I have tasted.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2005
Cloudy amber appearance, small creamy head. Vague aroma of cloves, wheat and salami. Citrus and banana in flavour, rather spicy and dry finish, hints of ham.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2005
spicy aroma, banana. Pours a nice cloudy yellow-orange, thin head. A satisfying, refreshing hefe. Mild acids but still a crisp finish. Sweetness in the middle.

Great, intriguing flavor, unique to Schneider Original. Beatiful reddish color. Very good mouthfeel - just has that taste of more. The best weissbier Iíve ever tasted!

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2005
Light malt and spice aroma in this one, following a golden brown pour with a lively head. Tastes of toasty malts, fruit, spice, and slight hops--pretty normal hefe stuff. Not my favorite style by a long shot, but a clean and refreshing change for a nice warm day.

nick76 (4298) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2005
UPDATED: APR 13, 2005 Pint bottle served cold. Aroma is strong with hops and alcohol and some roasted malt. Is a golden brown color but lacks cloudiness. Nice frothy head. Tastes is somewhat like English ale in that its taste is almost chocolate like; that is no doubt from the well toasted malts in this one. Nice hop character that adds a mixture of bitterness and spiciness. Decent alcohol presence as well. On the down side it is a little too thin and could stand to be a little sweeter but overall a very good beer. Weak bitter aftertaste.

Pours amner wth a healthy head into a hefe-weizen glass. Smell is of banana and coriander. Taste is citrussy with the wheat elements brought to the nose in each gulp. This is a favorite of mine in the warmer weather months.
