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

Heidbummer (120) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at Woodland Creatures. Pours auburn.russet with big bubbly off whote head. Banana, malt loaf, cloves on the nose. Full fruity chewy breakfast mouthfeel. Not too much banana on the taste - lots of dark fruit: raisins, dates, figs. Soft, drinkable dessert of a beer and an excellent beer - all the best of wheat beers and dunkels in one glass. Lovely.

Ritzn (131) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2016
Dark amber, brownish with big white head. Aroma is lemon, grass and a little bit wet basement. Taste is fresh sourness and very light. Still medium body and overall a good Weizen.

corkyrory66 (1261) - BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2016
Tap 7 original, avec malts d’orge et de blé, plusieurs houblons, refermenté, non filtré, non pasteurisé. Niveau abv de 5,4 % pour 50 cl. Mon exemplaire était juste à sa date limite. Couleur ambre caramel, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, à montée lente depuis les parois. Mousse beige clair, nappage soyeux à 1 mm. Arômes de malt cara, feuilles de chêne, bruyère, amandes, pointe de coing. 1ère bouche structurée à l’ensemble malté/épicé, avec une touche de candi. Arrière-bouche assez longue, avec du tabac brun. 2ème au bel ensemble malt/houblon, avec du tabac brun, mais la texture est assez aqueuse. Arrière-bouche un peu épicée, très originale. 3ème avec un peu de fruits et de châtaigne sur le malt cara. Arrière-bouche assez longue, souple. Longueur avec de très beaux moments, malgré une texture trop légère. Des parfums de fût vide, de foin coupé, touche de noisettes. Jambes fines, longues. Levure fine, nuancée, ligne correcte. Alcool trop faible, il ne peut tenir les saveurs sur la longueur. Finale assez faible. CONCLUSION : bière de bonne moyenne, mais à la texture trop ténue. De plus, elle va en s’affaiblissant sur la longueur, et la finale est vraiment mince.

Dark amber, big head. Aroma of banana and grain. Taste is lightly sweet, grainy, with some alcohol, banana and sour finish. I hoped it would be better.

Belle couleur mais pas beaucoup d’arôme et niveau du gout je suis plutôt déçu... Un peu de banane comme les autre weisse mais pas top...a voir à la deuxième dégustation.

Dark peanut butter orange. Lighter at the thin spots. The head isn’t that big but that might be my fault on the pour. (Although I did it German-style.) There is a smoky, Rauch-like aroma: it has a peat/wood smoke aroma that is really pleasant. A touch of lemon rind and wheat malt. There is an herbal (minty?) quality to the hop that I can’t quite put my finger on. The yeast is doughy as hell. I really enjoy it. The yeast really comes to the forefront in the flavor. It’s a dark, doughy yeast. A touch of that lemony goodness. The feel is more slick than expected; it’s kind of buttery. Boy I really like this beer. I don’t know if I like this or TAP5 better.

Pours a golden cloudy straw color. nice two finger white dense head. nose is ripe banana, banana peel, clove, some light pepper, something fruity underneath it all. beautiful mouthfeel and carbonation. very nice. palate is nice and light and very well balanced with the carbonation and slight effervescence. this is one of the best offerings of this style. always delicious
