COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

[bottle] Pours fairly dark and hazy with a large tan head. Aroma of banana and cloves. Slightly tart, but sweet mouthfeel. Good stuff.

The original hefeweizen from the worlds greatest brewery...at least thats my opinion. I love virtually every beer Schneider und Sohn puts out and this is no exception. I love the dark amber color and its sweet fruity finish similar to that of the greatest beer on planet earth, Aventinus.

500mL bottle. Ridiculous amount of head. Make sure it is chilled, or you are going to be waiting 30 minutes to actually taste it. Banana and some kind of spice aroma (clove?). Lots of carbonization. Hefe isnt my favorite type of beer, but this was pretty okay.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - APR 18, 2008
From a 500mL bottle purchased locally. Aroma has banana with a little clove. A cloudy amber with a big rocky off white head. Darker than most weisse beers. Flavor is a little tart and a little oxidized. Some of the banana and clove flavors come through. Highly carbonated, light mouthfeel that finishes clean. This would be a better beer if it was fresher. The shelf has not been good to this bottle.

Bonificare la piana del Fucino (imperatore Claudio) ? Bonificare la palude pontina (presidente Mussolini) ? e chi bonificher mai la Schneider Weisse??!?!?! Nemmeno Topo Gigio ci proverebbe, per fortuna. Sensazionale.

notalush (5856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
This beer is seriously alive - really lively pour, with a huge, frothy head - turbid, dark, apple cider-looking beer - strong clove and nutmeg in the aroma, with some nuttiness, light earthy wheat, and strong yeasty character - a wee bit thin on the palate - its actually quite dry, with a nearly sour tartness that compliments the musty, earthy qualities of the wheat - this quality is amplified in the finish - in between it is fairly clean and one-dimensional - some grain and clove - the bitter character is what sets it apart, and keeps it from being boring - Ill take a Weihenstephaner over this any day.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2008
Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head. Smells of light banana, somefruity citrus, and mild wheat characters. More fruity and darker in color than I was expecting. The flavor had a lot of sweet wheat characters, some banana and subtle clove as well. Nice full mouthfeel, with a fruity sweet finish. Very nice hefe, I like the Edel Weisse better, but this is very solid.

This is a nice hefe. .5L bottle poured into a wheat beer glass. It poured brownish-amber right up to the line. There are distinct clove, banana, apple, and yeast notes. The taste is of the same with cloves and bananas omni-present. It is a bit heavy on the mouthfeel for a hefe. The finish combines the banana and some sour notes. It is good, but I agree with some other raters-not may favorite hefe-weizen.

0.5L bottle in a wheat beer glass - Pours a cloudy light amber color with fairly large fluffy white head. Aroma is full of cloves, light caramel, touch of bananna, bit of lemon. Flavor is fairly malty, yeasty, definite bananna, light caramel. Finish is balanced. Fairly highly carbonated. Very nice overall, though a bit dark it seems to me for the style.
