Draft. After a week stashed in a growler, it’s still pretty good. Cloudy pale yellow has just a tinge of pink in the center of the glass. Very refreshing wheat taste, not only a lemony spritz, but a little Belgian candi sweetness, it seems.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden brown with a large white head. Malty wheat with some orange, banana and a cinnamon clove like aroma. Lightly tart wheat flavor with some fruity citrus flavors which lead into some estery banana notes. Light clove spice in the crisp finish. Very solid hefe, but I expected a little more, given its reputation.

Poured a clody golden color with hints of copper. Off-white head was 3/4" thick, very long lasting. Aroma and flavor are pleasantly fruity (banana) with a touch of clove and citrus. Pleasantly carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering aftertaste. Excellent hefeweizen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow cloudy body, with a small lasting head. Banana and citrus aromas. Fruity flavor dominated by banana on top plus some berries at the bottom. Crisp but creamy, carbonation highlights the flavors and keeps it very refreshing. An excellent hefeweizen overall.

The best of a flight of hefeweizens at the Flying Saucer in Memphis. Tart, clove, banana: just can’t beat Schneider.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange color, a full bubbly head, some lace and a fair amount of carbonation. A fresh fruity smell of bananas, and slightly citrus. A sweet taste that is not too dry, is clear and clean, and finishes quite crisp. Great mouth feel with strong effervescence. An admirable balance of desirable characteristics in a Hefe Weizen.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy gold/pale orange in appearance, pouring an enormous, bilious white head. Aroma is shockingly fresh, floral, citrus, lemon, orange, lively, and lovely. Light and playful upon the tongue, brief finish, light body, slight texture. No lemon required, unless you’re a certified lily-gilder. Refreshing as a beer can be!

Light golden in color but cloudy. Foamed up alot. Sharp fruity taste, mostly bananas with a clove finish. Pretty good, but not a beer I could drink a lot of.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent all-around hefe. Yellow with a generous head, good rich carbonation yet an unagressive palate. Well rounded spice, including clove in the aroma, and banana and citrus more prominent in the flavor.

Amber with a weak white head. Aroma was of wheat with banana and a touch of smokiness. Smooth and creamy. Nice and somewhat refreshing but not appealing to me.
