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.

Banana nutty clove Belgian yeast aromas and flavors. Balanced well by the malt but still light enough to be easy drinking. Flavorful but still easy drinking.

0,5 l bottle, served in weizen glass. Poured hazy amberish dark brown with a small one finger off white head. Darker looking than most other hefeweizen. Lively carbonation in glass. Aromas of ripe banana, cloves, caramel, brown sugar. Taste: Again the banana and cloves. Then vanilla, caramel, wheat, sugar candy, nuts, spice. Malty ripe banana mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. A light body with a nice sweet malty finish. Some faint bitterness. A very enjoyable hefeweizen.

Lovely stuff, isn't quite on the same level as the stronger Schneider Weiss but still a lot more complex with nicer aftertaste than your normal wheat beer. Dark colour, just 5.4%

Barwa ciemnego złota, wpadająca w bursztyn. Piana z początku średnio obfita, momentalnie znika do zera. W aromacie stylowo, ale nie zbyt intensywnie. W smaku wodniste, puste. Rozczarowanie.
