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.

Color ámbar oscuro, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación alta, las burbujitas se pegan al fondo y las paredes del vaso. Aroma a trigo, malta y algo frutal. Sabor a trigo, malta, fruta, algo de plátano. Un poco de amargor final. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación bien medida. Toda una cerveza de trigo. Gran surprise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Butelka. Piana obfita, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, opada powoli i redukuje się do obwódki, słabo koronkuje. Barwa ciemnego złota, mętne. W aromacie intensywny banan i goździk. Goryczki w zasadzie brak. W smaku intensywniejszy jest goździk, dalej banan i pszenica. Pełnia średnia, nasycenie wysokie. Trudno o bardziej klasycznego przedstawiciela stylu.

I didnt see what all the fuss was about, sure it smelled o.k with hints of banana and slight bubble gum. A nice amber body, with a super thick cap that left good lace. But the mouthfeel was too watery, and after the initial taste of slight banana and clove there wasnt anything except a little yeasty after taste, that was really bland. Overall it was o.k. but i dont intend on getting another one.Originally rated on 10/ 9/2008.
