3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light brown color. Large head. Aroma is malty, sweet and fruity. A medium to full bodied hefe. Malts are wheaty, slightly roasted and sweet. Hops are somewhat spicy. Touch of banana and clove as well as spices. A very nice beer. Much darker than I was expecting, Very fine carbonation, nearly champagne like. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Nice Greman wheat beer. Brew pours up light brown with significant head. Head almost completly dissipates and there is little or no lacing. Very nice malty, yeasty, clove aroma. There is a ton of floaters in this beer, almost to the point I was ready to break out a strainer. Nice flavor, sweet apples. Does have a dry, champagne type of finish. Quite good.

Hazy almost amber color with huge head and some lacing, bigger body than most weizens. Nice aroma of banana, sour apple, bread dough, and a hint of clove. Wonderful tartness and a fizzy mouthfeel, very refreshing, very underrated hefe, my second favorite just a nudge under Ayinger.

Hazy copper, big light head, banana aroma with citrus fruits and cloves. Wheat acidity, sugar-free banana bread, a hint of bubblegum, just a bit tart, really refreshing.

Head drops off quickly, aroma of biscuits and grass. Wonderful light, refreshing with a nice bite. Not as fruity as I would like, but a nice beer.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Deep reddish-brown pour with a short, white head. Aroma is bready and malty with a tart nose at the end. The taste is quite light but hoppy... perhaps a bit of rye here? The finish is full... that surprises me after the initial light taste. Great tangy bite at the back of the mouth. Overall, I like Wheats a little fuller than this, but the long finish and whiskey-like color make it interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2004 ReRate: What the hell was wrong with me? I had this Beer rated as a 3.5, I must have been a mongoloid? Anyway, this is a Great Beer, The best Heff I have had! Large notes of bananas, clove, and citrus oils: particularly tangerine. The palate is immensely creamy and inviting. Terrific Stuff!
I have been drinking all of these German wheat beers lately and all of the flavors and aromas are beginning to run together in my mind. I have a fantastic authentic German deli 100 feet from my office. The owner drinks beer and runs the register all day as his wife prepares the food. The Schneider Weisse Original is a completely genuine German wheat beer. This beer has an amber-golden color, gigantic foamy head, an aroma of wheat and malt, and smooth finish. You aren’t living until you have the Original.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crazy brown colour for a wheat beer. Soft white head which dies down very quickly. Tons of floaties, but that could be a result of where I bought it from. Classic wheat smell reminiscent of fruit and yeast. A very full bodied taste with a large flavour with not too much 'wheatie' characteristics. A wierd beer which is pretty drinkable, but definately not my favourite style. A bitter aftertaste but not too pungent or tasty. Worth trying, but don't be too upset when its not what you are expecting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big head which does not last long. Great big huge carbonation throughout. Looked like someone turned on the bubble machine and left it on. Hazy amber color. Aroma of yeast and wheat. Flavor is pretty smooth with hints of unripened bananas mixed in with the traditional wheat. Finish is very, very dry. Almost to the point where your tongue feels sticky. A decent wheat beer that hits all of the landmarks for a traditional wheat beer.

Cloudy amber beer with generous head. Very astringent aroma with hints of yeast. flavor mild and fruity but somewhat green grass tasting. Not a pleasant experience. Guess It's not my style.
