2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer poured out of the bottle hazy and golden brown with a lot of sedimentation ... little black flecks throughout and even huge chunks toward the end. It smells like lime and brown sugar, with some hints of spice. The taste is sweet with tepid citrus notes, sort of like a beer mixed with flat diet sprite. The ABV (which is rather high for a Weisse beer) comes through in the finish, so you can taste the alcohol a little bit.
Considering how much I enjoy some of Schneider’s other brews, I’m really surprised how awful this one is. I’m not altogether certain what style the Edel-Weisse is meant to emulate. Perhaps I got a bad bottle?
Bought this one in April, part of a few popular beers I wanted to try out. The Aventinus made a strong impression on me, so why not try others. Jashiu (1324) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 19, 2017
What a great yeasty wheat! Lovely bananas with some nice lemony vibe. Light spiciness on the nose. Lightly sour, but also some sweetness Moretum (167) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - JUL 11, 2017
Trübe gelb orange Farbe mit imposanter, weißer Schaumkrone. Floral fruchtiger Geruch mit Hefe, Banane und süßer Malznote. Der Geschmack zeigt Hefe, Malz, Banane, Citrus mit guter Balance zwischen Süße und Bittere. Frisch, geradlinig, gut. sharkydodson (1615) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUL 8, 2017

Probably my favourite beer among the ones that follow Reinheitsgebot. Good balanceof bananas and herbal notes/clove.

Pours dark golden, hazy with a big, durable head. The smell is sweet, dominated by banana, but there are also distinct melanoidins and some cloves. The taste is cereal, with notes of fruit, bubble gum and spices, it’s quite dry. There are also hints of burnt caramel and dark bread. Spicy bitterness, earthy, high for a weizen, but pleasant. Tasty and rich for the style. TychoJames (1311) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2017
Flaska systembolaget. Grumlig orange kulör. Doft av citrus, örter och jäst. I smak känns örter, äpplemos, aprikos, jäst och vete. Len och uppfriskande rumore (533) - Rimini, ITALY - JUN 2, 2017
From 50cl bottle. Pours fully hazy dark intense gold with abundant white foam, irregular. Aroma is fruity but also herbaceous, the latter moderating the typical weizen aroma of banana, which here is not straightforward. Body is average. Taste is not as sweet as typical weizen, but displays a pleasant bitterness as well. Finish is short. JefVerstraete (3357) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2017
Bottle from Geers. Hazy yellow/amber colour, white foam. Sweet nose of banana, wheat, citrus. Bitter, sweet and light wheat tart. Balanced. Nice and refreshing hefeweizen. Nevalainen (772) - FINLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Hazy orange color with stable white head. Aroma of wheat, banana and yeast. Taste is medium bitter, sparkling mouthfeel. Well balanced and very nice hefeweizen.
