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.

jahughey (65) - Franklin, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2005
The original hefeweizen is still the best and most unique. While many well-made weizens are nearly indistinguishable, Schneider Original has the drinkability of a standard hefeweizen crossed with the chocolate malt/caramel malt color and complexity of some dunkel weizens. Banana esters are much less prevalent in favor of a more spicy clove yeast character. A perfect beer for a hot summer day (or any other).

harrisoni (15009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle, North Bar, Leeds. Dark amber wheat beer with some apple and nutty flavours. Also some spiciness in the palate and on the end. Nutty finish. Nice.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2005
A weak, caramel-brown with large, plaster-chunks of sediment and virtually no head. Aromas were rather weak, with banana, lemon, honey and cola. A moderately sweet start with a mild, bitter middle and light acidity to end. Dry and spicy. There are better hefes.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Deep amber color to the body with a good head. Aroma of banana and clove. Well balanced flavor of fermented fruit. Was clean on the palate. But the last swig it tasted like someone just put an alcohol wipe on my tounge. Decent beer.

Robe blonde voilée aux reflets cuivrés surmontée d’une mousse blanche en dentelle. Arômes de bananes, d’agrumes et de levures. Saveurs de bananes et de levures. Belle présence du corps.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Cloudy, dark golden - must be one of the darkest German Hefes. Fresh and lightly acidic fruitiness with a - for a Hefe - surprisingly bitter finish. 160300

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Citrus tones are the order of the day here, overtaking the standard clove and banana aromas/flavors typical to the style. Pours an unusually dark murky amber for a standard hefe; thin but tightly packed head sits atop this sinister-looking brew. Lace slides down the side of the glass fairly rapidly. Citrus dominates with some clove and apple notes back there a ways, then dry wheat shows up toward the end. Definitely on the chewier end of the hefe-weizen scale. One of the best of its breed, this is well-done.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 On a hot summers day I could imagine drinking litres of this beer on end. However today it is winter, and only just warm enough to avoid the jumper. Contrary to the description (which is quite different to what’s written on my bottle) the head was initially prominent, but not persistent, and any lacing was sliding down the glass faster than a gecko on red bull. An initally burst of banana aroma was followed by some sour green apple. Tasting brought out a slight hint of the cloves, but the palate was a bit too light to be above average. The flavour was good, with a touch of bitterness leaving a very pleasant finish. A good weizen. Re-rate: Sort of like a baby Aventinus. This time around it’s summer, and it is appreciated a bit better. Noticed more of the sourness, although that probably has to do with a more experienced palate. Still far behind some of the brewers other products.
