After this beer, I think it is accurate to say you can count on Schneider for most all your wheat beer needs. Maroon in color and having a lovely profusion of malt-tinged wheat aroma in the flavor, this was another great product from this brewery. The strong german wheat concentration and small appearance of grain and malt make this a perfect autumn brew--though great for any season.

This is not a bad wheat. Reminded me a little bit of root beer at the time... light, citrussy, buttery maltiness and slight hoppiness. great wheat... after having a sam adams summer ale, this wheat was a breath of fresh air

What can I say, for Germany this beer must be one of the best. ;)

Dark brown, bock-like appearance with a huge stable head. I found the nose kinda weak, with caramel-banana the most prominent feature. Maybe a touch of smoke/roasted grain also? Seems odd for a weiss. Flavor: ahh, much more like it. Hugely malty, but in a medium-light weiss kind of way, with a buttery/lemony undertone and a long smooth finish. Super-drinkable on a hot day (hot fudgeing month I should say, I moved to VT for this?). Not the best I’ve had, Paulaner still rules, but this is excellent and could grow on me.

Smooth and light tasting with hints of cloves. Very enjoyable, would go down awesomely on a hot summer day.

Not as good as some, but quite enjoyable, perfect with grilled brats on a summer eve in the back yard

Murky brown. Honey maltiness and clove aroma. Medium body and well balanced sweetnes vs spicyness. One of the best ’classical’ weissbier.

Not really what I hoped for. For the price I was expecting something superior to Schöfferhofer or Franziskaner. It is in fact in my opinion a lesser weizen in taste.

A little rough around the edges. Lots of wheat in aroma, not much yeast. Same with the flavor. Darker appearance than most weisse I’m used to. A different sort of weisse, with more emphasis on the grains and less on the fruity yeast, but there is quite a bit of citrus in there.

A celestial gift of juicy bananas and vanilla-coated apples…Wonderfully prevalent lemon acidity…Covered with clovers…
