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

Tap & Bottle. Dark yellow and cloudy appearance in the glass. Very carbonated with huge persistent head. Smell: Banana is the first thing hits your nose with aromas of clove and yeast. Aroma: Banana, clove, and citrus. Moreover, biscuity wheat malt also detectable. Good fruity finish. No hop bitterness, but fruity aromas.

Keg at Drygate. Cloudy brown beer with a thin head. Spicy aroma but there’s banana in there too. Smells its strength. Flavour has a strong hit of banana too with a touch of toffee over a bready base. Airy banana aftertaste.

Towey1989 (337) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A hazy amber colour with a thick, fizzy head. Aroma is pleasant of bread, banana, cloves and toffee. Taste of toffee, banana bread, grain and cloves. Light bodied, moderate carbonation but a crisp, smooth texture. A crisp and clean banana bread finish. So easy drinking and smooth for a wheat beer, lovely banana and bready flavours. Not amazing but good for it’s style.

Keogh (117) - Świebodzice, POLAND - APR 24, 2015
Barwa ciemnego bursztynu, piana obfita, drobno-pęcherzykowa, dosyć trwała. W aromacie banany, goździki, cytrusy. W smaku powtórka z aromatu, do tego troszkę kwaskowatości, delikatna goryczka i otrzymujemy piwo bardzo orzeźwiające i lekkie. Wysycenie wysokie. Troszkę nudne, aczkolwiek bardzo poprawne i dobre piwo.
