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

Draft @ Taphouse CPH. Pours a dark golden color, which is a mix of brown and yellow, with a good head with some retention. The aroma is mostly malts with some apparent phenolic presence, while the taste is surprisingly (albeit mildly) sour and refreshing, carrying notes of fruits and spices. A favorite.

nephirem (138) - CROATIA - JUN 19, 2016
Pours hazy deep ruby color with rich white head. Smell is fruity, wheat with notes of banana to it. Medium body with soft, but prickly carbonation. Light texture. Taste is mostly sweet with some sourness and bitterness added. Aroma of wheat, clove, fruit, lots of banana, slight caramel and some hops towards the finish. Very rich and complex, beautifully balanced. Overall, delicious.

bottle: pours an orange amber colour with a quickly dissipating off white head.....aroma more banana than clove but that changes a little as it warms.... subtle dried fruit and a smokiness present....not really smokiness but fenugreek,,,I think that’s it, it reminds me of a batch of home brew I made with fenugreek.......lightly carbonated.....caramel taste present.....a slight tartness at the back end....at first I wasn’t sure but the taste kinda grew on me....

KeefOz (1463) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2016
BB 02.10.2016. Poured a hazy medium amber/brown colour (darker than usual for a Hefe) with a three-finger off-white frothy head that retained well (diminished under five minutes) and laced poorly plus with a few yeasty sediments. Carbonation low to moderate with medium bubbles. Aroma of caramel malt, soft sweet banana and subtle cloves; not as fruity as other Hefes. Taste of moderately sweet banana and cloves and a hint of dark fruits/raisins. Light to medium body. Soft, smooth and slightly dry with mild but sweet banana and a hint of cloves on the finish. Good.

On tap @ Weisses Bräuhaus, Starkbierzeit 2016. Üvegesbe jobban ízlett, ez olyan savanykás, kb mint a hordó alja. Színe is iszapos.

Echon (306) - Århus, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2016
Reddish brown and light-bodied. Fruity aroma and light fruity flavour. Mild, somewhat dry taste, with moderate acidity and low bitterness. Overall, a dull experience. I do not appreciate dryness and acidity together, no matter the beer style. I guess weissbiers are not for me.

A very tasty white beer. Very cloudy amber color and a creamy white head. Some smokey on the nose. Malt and smoked oak taste. A good finish.
