RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2007
500ml bottle. Aroma: Banana, pepper and clove, pineapple, resin, wheat malt, yeast, lemons. herbal and earthy hop notes. Wow. Appearance: Dark golden in color and very cloudy. White head was huge and foamy/mousselike with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Wheat malt and yeast, light breadiness, citrus, floral, and earthy hops, banana and clove, pineapple and bubble gum. Some resin flavors come forward more as it warms. Medium bitterness lingers for awhile. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: This was better than I expected. A beer packed with flavors that all seem to work together. Surprisingly drinkable to boot. Outstanding.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Poured a hazy yellow brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is lightly banana with a mild clove and light wheatyness. The flavor has a wheaty citrus taste overall. Some banana at the finish. The alcohol is so hidden. Great beer.

cbreville (5) - Thornton, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2007 does not count
I love everything about this beer: Iím extremely partial to Wheat Beers, and thereís nobody who does them better than Schneider. I love the cloudy, orange/gold color that reveals whisps of yeast that are gone as soon as they appear; the terrific head that could stand for hours; the citrusy aroma, and the sweet hop flavor that requires no lemon or orange to compliment this beer. My only complaint about this beer is the price and how fast it disappears after I buy it.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Riddled, then pours a deep amber(chocolate and banana milkshake), multi-hued and extremely clouded, totally opaque. A white head, very tall and foamy/frothy, recedes slowly. The aroma is loaded with sweet esters, banana peel, boisterous pineapple juice and hefty clove. Grassy and green from start to finish, each inhalation cementing the new knowledge that this can indeed work. Cinnamon and nutmeg notes float into the prose that is this libation. There is a distinct appleskin note that pops out with each full draw. Light floral hops and earth round out this most interesting and unorthodox aroma. The flavor is moderately hoppy; I canít imagine this being drinkable in many incarnations, but here it is blended well and yeast, wheat, hop and tropical fruit note interplay is well-executed and fun to unravel. bitterness is mild to moderate and extremely conducive to flavor and complexity expantion without drowning out low-profile wheat notes. Sweetness is medium and nowhere near cloying. Light, waxy white chocolate-wrapped caramels garner focus as the beer warms to room temperature. The finish is sweet and lightly peppered, yeast lingering, hop bitterness, grassy notes and clove beyond that; a finale is as complex as any other part of the experience. The mouthfeel is thick, smooth, lightly grainy with wheat malt, highly carbonated and well-dispersed across the palate. Knowing that this first batch is the only one that will ever be brewed at the German brewery that is partnered in this exploration is in itself rewarding enough. A chance to try a different interpretation, likely with some minor ingredient changes, will be reason enough to enjoy this again. Phenomenal.

thornecb (4168) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Pours a bright gold until half way through the pour; then turns deep cloudy amber into a Weizen glass. Fluffy off-white head with excellent retention leaves lacing as it slowly recedes. Citrus and yeast aromas. Cloves and cinammon upfront with a lasting citrus hop finish..

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2007
Cloudy orange color. Smell of yeast, malt, lemons, bananas, clove, ginger and bread. Taste the same but there is also alcohol and honey in the taste. Alcohol is more noticable in the taste. Refeshing.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle. Quite estery and yeasty, and also very hoppy for the style. Earthy hop notes, touches of clove and banana, but with a definite slightly grassy, slightly green hop edge. Some floral notes. Palate is quite sweet and slightly thick and estery. Pretty good, and iím sure many people will like this, but its just quite not there for me even though i did enjoy it.

Cletus (6329) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Pours a straw yellow/gold with a huge white head. Smells of lots of fresh sage like hops, cloves, coriander, bubble gum, lemon, bananas, some hints of orange. Tastes mildly bitter in a complimentary way with nice sugary undertones, and rich flavorful mint. The best way to describe the taste is that it resembles a good hefeweizen someone decided to dry hop with some noble hops. Mouthfeel is full and malty. Finish is sweet and peppery with lots of spicey undertones. The 8.2% alcohol is very well masked on this one. I donít usually go for ramped up versions of classic styles, but this in and of itself is a classic and you can definitely taste the influence of both brewers in this beer. Excellent balance of hops and malt. I hope more brewers attempt beers like this.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Pours a milky deep orange/golden with a large foamy/bubbly slightly off white lacing head. Aroma of floral, orange and spicy hops. Also getting some banana and clove esters. Flavors of orange peel, tropical fruits, yeast spiciness, hints of earthiness, wheat malt, floral and chewy hops and again some of the banana/clove. This one comes across as crisp, refreshing and dry with a great hop flavor while keeping hop bitterness in line.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2007
bottle: pours a honey golden colour with a huge lively white head. aroma of spicey yeast, slight banana and juicy fruit gum, wheat malt and some lemon zest. pretty complex and very enjoyable. i have just smelled this for a good 7 minutes straight. flavour is spicey and yeasty upfront with wheat malts, clove and very small hints of banana. ends just a bit bitter and very enjoyable.
