This beer will spawn lovers and haters alike. I for one am a lover because when it comes to beer styles I am one who likes it when beers push the boundaries and break the rules and I applaud the brewers who ask the question what if we did this? This is a Hop Heads Hefe! Now for the beer. So big floral and full. Meal in a glass kind of thing. Sometimes Hefe has those flavors that are astringent and cut through you. Not this one. All those wonderful weissen flavors and characteristics and big hops to go with it. Absolutely one of my favorite beers. The alcohol is spot on. barely noticable and puts you where you want to be. Not for the faint at heart.

czar (3805) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 pours cloudy pale golden with a frothy white head, excellent retention and lacing. fresh cereals, wheat, loads of citrus and coriander, light pine, finely balanced beer.

SirRepsol (158) - Cologne, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 from bottle. pours a deep orange hazy colour with a minimal frothy head that quickly disappears. the aroma is fantastic: lots of hops mixed with the typical weissbier characteristics: banana and some yeast. but this one adds the citric and tropical fruits notes from an IPA to it. absolutely awesome! the full body, the quite creamy and the fizzy carbonation mixed with all the sweet fruity notes and the slightly bitter aftertaste make this one of the best beers around. go get it!

MichaelAwesome (3017) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Bottle shared with McTapps. If Lindemans Kriek was my surprise of 2012, then the title 2013 goes definitely to that Schneider. HUGE citrus, fruity and very hoppy aroma which will hit you from first to last ! What a aromatic bombthis beer is ! Taste offers fruits, citrus and a bit yeast but the nose is crazy well brewed. Superb piwo !

Lore (835) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 hazy yellow colour with brownish notes, huge white-off white head; extremely complex aroma and taste of bread, citrus, grass, banana,and pine resin (as if you would have a great weizen and an IPA in parallel); this is the best weizen (not only weizen bock, but in all weizen categories) Iíve ever tasted; excellent beer update: some ananas can also be felt both in the aroma and taste. Iím really close to say that (at least currently) I canít imagine that it is possible to brew better weizen than this one. score changed from 4.9 (10/5/9/5/20) to 5.0 - if I find better weizen in the future, then Iíll re-score it again :)

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 500 ml bottle. Cloudy yellow-brown pour with a thick white head. The aroma is fantastic... fresh noble hops with zesty citrus, flowers and herbs and a soft dankness set against wheaty citrus acidity, banana, melon and a soft clove and bubble gum character. I could smell this beer all day. A touch of black pepper that becomes much more prominent as the beer warms up. Flavour is of fresh wheaty spice, herbal/floral hops. Rich texture, black pepper and soft clove/banana in back of all the hops. Cotton candy/bubble gum sweetness as well. Youíll have to drink this one fresh because I donít think the hop character will hold up for long, but itís pretty awesome right now. Alcohol is pretty evident, especially as the beer warms up a bit, but Iíve got no complaints right now.

Iíve had this so many time now and every time I find something else that I absolutely love about it. Might be one of my favourites and is something that Iíll pick up every single time I see it. Other than the excessive muddiness of the pour thereís nothing I could imagine that would improve it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2010
Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very murky orange-ochre color with a huge soapy yellow-white head that lingered and produced good lacing. The aroma was strong fruity hops with notes of orange, grapefruit and pineapple. The flavor was very sweet, tangy and tart with a delightful mix of grapefruit, pine and pineapple and undertones of wheat, yeast and pepper. The finish was long with notes of pineapple and wheat. Fairly full bodied. The alcohol was very well hidden. Incredible.
