Lovely colour, yeasty/spicey aroma, starts slightly sour. A little too much carbonation. Banana/clove aroma through the middle. Hops on the finish, leaving a pleasant sour/bitter impression. I always get a hint of smoke in here, am I wrong?

Beautiful flavour. Lovely colour. The palate was perhaps a bit bland. Bubbly and smooth. A good beer but lacking something too move it up a notch. The head did not match the picture so it might have been a bit old.

Very strong esthers in the nose, more banana than bubblegum. Has a nice, pale, long-lasting head over the surprisingly dark body. The flavor is great, with even more banana and bubblegum flavor than the aroma promised. The palate is crisp, as befits the style. Overall, this is probably the best Hefe Iíve had.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very faint hazy deep amber with smallish short lasting light beige head. Faint fruity nectar and caramel aroma. Medium thin low carbonated watery body. Soft mild bitter flavoured palate with some added faint fruity honey sweet flavours. Mild somewhat tasteless finish. A bit disappointing.

This is my favorite Hefe-Weizen. Amber in color, giant white head. Flavor is so smooth and the aftertaste is wonderful. Buy this beer and learn to enjoy one of the best beers Germany has to offer.

The beer that revived the style. This one is a cleaner tasting Weizen. Beautiful amber colored with thick white foamy head, turbid but not overly so, Schneider Weiss has a cleaner flavour profile than most Weizen - for example Hacker - and the aroma and flavours are predominated by a more clove-like, and maybe apple-like character as opposed to bananas. It has a hearty body, is lightly hopped and a clean finish for a weizen.

This beer has a long and complex history. The Schneider family holding the faith for weizenbier during a time when nearly every other brewery was switching over to lager. A true classic. Top fermented like an ale, but fresh tasting like a lager, this is an ideal summer drink - refreshing, but also interestingly complex. The flavours are mildly spicy with just a hint of a medicinal quality - there are cloves and corriander present, and then some light fruits which range from mildly sharp such as apple, to smoothly sweet such as banana.

Great flowery aroma, complex. Great head, small bubbles. Brown orangey look, cloudy.
Good flavours but not as complex as aroma is promising .A bit watery, maybe I was expecting so much. Still great drink. Recommended.

Darker than most weissbiers. Huge pillowy off-white head looks very appetizing. Notes of citrus, banana and cloves make this one very enjoyable to smell. Taste is not quite as good as itís appearance and aroma would suggest. Itís rather weak and a bit on thin side. But still overall pretty decent weissbier.
