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.

Schneider Weisse is relatively common in the U.S. as they have been exporting since the early 1990’s. Because so many people were introduced to weissbier with one of the blonde versions they often mistakenly refer to Schneider as a "Dunkelweiss," when it is actually an "Original" weissbier. This style is rather common among the smaller, traditional weissbier breweries in Bavaria, all of which are based loosely on Schneider’s version. It pours deep amber or light brown in color, with a bouquet full of expected banana and clove aromas. The initial sip is sweet and full, with a rounded and soft body, containing hints of earthy fruitiness. The finish is relatively clean. The head is creamy, but with larger bubbles than some versions and it does not hold as well as it does when fresh. I find that it takes a few sips of weissbier to truly get the palate adjusted. Once you get the idea, however, it leaves the tongue asking for more. Original is a very consistent brew and holds up relatively well as an import (as opposed to many lighter weissbiers, which can become sour and tangy if incorrectly stored) and would never be a bad choice in my book. I’m happy to give it a very solid score and only a slight lack of complexity relative to some of its micro-cousins prevents this from earning top numbers over the board. Serving type: bottle
