This beer was very tasty but I really enjoyed the American brewed better. This is still an excellent beer... It’s Schneider, of course it’s excellent!

500ml bottle - Pours hazy gold with an ample white head. It smells of yeast, citrus hops, and a little spice. The flavor nicely combines the sweet, yeasty malt of the weiss with generous hops accented by good citrus notes. It’s lively on the palate and leaves a crisp, bitter finish. Tasty.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle into an Aventinus glass. Pours a hazy golden with a big white head. Leaves a nice lacing. Aromas are bready, yeasty, a bit of cloves, noble hops, a touch of spiciness, a little fruity. Flavor is slightly sweet, malty, a touch of alcohol, spicy, cloves. Mmm, very good. Medium mouthfeel. I prefer the Brooklyn version (amarillo hops!), but costwise, this is a bargain for a wheatbock.

This is an incredible beer. It is the best of both worlds. The Wheat meets the Hops. This is a beer that would satisfy the hophead and the wheat fanatic.I had this beer in America and at the Schneider brewery In Kelheim, Germany. If you can get this, don’t pass it up!!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Pours like hazed grapefruit juice w/ a tall lasting head. A full canopy sets like a pancake. Beautifully aromatic smelling citrus, tropicals, and piny hops w/ a touch of medicine. Full nectar w/ chewy carbonation that almost goes creamy. Bitter grapefruit rind, banana spice and other tropicals w/ a spoon full of medicine in every pint. The finish is bittered well leaving peachpit pock marks on my tongue. Theres quite a bit of sediment that pours in the last half. Good stuff!

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Pours a bright hazy golden orange with a huge fluffy white head that lingers for most of the session as the bubbles continually regenerate the head. The lacing is delicate and minimal. The smell is big and spicy with huge German hops with a sweetness of bananas and cloves. This is all on top of the sweet wheat and yeast base that pervades the aroma. The taste follows the aroma and has the big wheat base that has abundant spices and lemon zest thrown in. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy with huge carbonation. Drinkability is extremely high on this one and it makes for an excellent summer brew.

Appearance: Super cloudy and light yellow. Nice fluffy head that sticks around. Yep, it’s a german wheat. Aroma: The usual banana clove but an exceptional floral aroma shines through. The dry-hop is clear and present. Flavor: Very prominent bitterness, strong yeast esthers that provide the normal banana and a very soft breadiness. The hop flavor might be there. Definitely a floral flavor, but the yeast and bitterness cover most of it up. Mouthfeel: A little slick, dry, strong carbonation. Overall: Excellent beer. Really takes the weizenbock to the next level. The dryhopping sets this one apart. The aroma really and touch of hop flavor shine and make this beer something unique. I got the german one that is dry hopped with hallertauer saphir. I’d really like to get my hands on the one dry hopped with amarillo. I would drink these all night.

Fin (8099) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle picked up from Uto Beer, Borough Market, Lahndan Tahn 21-06-08 This pours looking for the world like chicken gravy, and its only salvation in the looks department is the nice rather attractive white foamy head. Banana and in particular clove come through on the nose but also yeast and a good dollop of fresh hops. The taste is bitter, wheaty and there is a nice pithiness from the hops, lovely very refreshing and amazingly drinkable for the abv. Thanks to Ian (Harrisoni) for the tip off about this one.
