3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, dull gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is much sweeter than expected, I saw the word "hefeweizen" and assumed it would be all banana and clove, but there is a strong caramel and burnt sugar punch to it. Itís almost like a banana split. Like a hefe sundae. Taste definitely has that banana note in it, but has a sort of chocolatey flavor behind it. Some clove flavor, notes of tangy wheat grain, plum, pears, and some more fruity banana esters on the finish. Palate is full, slick and creamy like any wheat-based beer should be. Very nuanced and not quite what I was expecting. I bought this hoping to explore the underappreciated hefewiezen, but ended up getting more of a pale colored weizen bock. Still quite good, though.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Not the first time Iím having this, but the first time rating. Grass and spring-like nose, but the heavy bock is already noticeable. Full body with a creamy soft texture, charming carbonation. Powerful without the ABV becoming too apparent. Sweet palate. Not a beer to drink fast. Good!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle. Hazy light golden with a huge white head, couldnít pour the whole bottle in a reasonable time (but I was dining and I was also very hungry). Aroma is wonderful, typical weizen aroma with added hoppy fruitiness, makes me drool. Taste is also good but somehow less "fresh" with maybe a bit too much sweetness. Pleasant finish, fruity aftertaste, light bitterness. Excellent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours murky brownish orange. Nose is loads of sweet fruits, even berries, peaches, yeast. Taste is similar sweet and fruity. Solid Schneider but not really my favourite style of weizen. It is a bit odd of being so fruity and sweet. Tap 6 fits my taste better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Hazy yellow color with one finger head. Wheat, fresh pineapple, peaches and other tropical fruits aroma. Really powerful and nice. The taste is very similar with the peaches coming out a little more than the rest of the flavors, some cloves, and the tropical fruit. What a good beer.

On tap. Slight foam, no lacing, alcohol presence subdued. Though not sure this is a "98" beer, good to drink and worth the detour. Fits in my range of bitterness, will try again

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours basically opaque murky golden yellow with small off-white head that fizzes away rather quickly. The aroma is, uuh, so nice, wheaty grains and stone fruits, pineapple, mango and peaches, grass, and perhaps even a hint of alcohol. Tastes fruity and malty sweet with very nice tropical fruit and somewhat grassy hop character. Full body, thin but crisp carbonation, malty finish with little lingering grassy-leafy-citric bitterness. So nice, would love to have it again.
