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.

Ugly brown with some yeast floaters. Dense, creamy, white head. Yeast, wheat, clove, light fruitiness-aroma. Same flavor with a bit of spice and some subtle, crisp hops. Refreshing medium body with plenty of carbonation. Excellent hefeweizen.

This stuff was closer to the Belgian White beers that I’ve had than the German Hefeweizens. More of that Belgian-style spice, and fruit. Lighter yeast. Still pretty cloudy appearance though. Not too shabby, but I like Franziskaner better.

MissK (20) - Cleveland Heights, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Brownish-yellow color in glass. Very fizzy. Smelled fruit, banana. It went down smooth and had more body to it than the other hefeweisens I’ve had so far - I liked it.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2005
500ml bottle poured into the official glass. A little bit darker orange body than usual. Cloudy as well with a huge head. Typical big banana aroma, but the flavor is much better than any other German Hefe to date. Big malt flavor with toffee. Finishes bittersweet. Very nice!

winkle (477) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottled: This is simply a great example of a hefe. Typical amber colour, aroma is on the money - banana, cloves hints of citrus - nice sweet fruity flavours with a good mouthfeel and a lite bitter/sourish finish. Good stuff.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle (500ml). Poured murky orange with a big lasting foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana and citrus malt, very peppery. Quite spicy and orangey tasting, fresh fruity malt and a bit of ashy hop bitterness too. Mouthfeel is creamy and lively - very nice Hefe, not complex or challenging, but goes down easy.

Nel (180) - Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 This is really one of the flagship hefe’s that I picture mentally when I think of a good hefeweisen. Pours out a cloudy brown. A little bit of yeast in the nose, along with banana and wheat bread. The flavor is all hefe, complete with banana, light fruit, and clove. Really a great example fo the style. Cheers.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2005
I used to detest wheat beers as there was always a seeming lack of balance and a far too prominent tang coming from a soup of esters. Then I discovered that Aussies generally can’t do this style well. The Germans are masters here and the Schneider family do a great rendition of this style. Pleasant fruity aromas and a good smack of apple and bananas. A fine body and very thirst quenching as the warmer months approach.

(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy orangish-brown body with a large creamy off-white head. Arom of wheat and banana. Good flavored hefeweizen (wheat, banana, cloves).
