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.

Medium white head. Hazy opaque brown body. Chalky, yeasty, banana aroma with citric notes and hints of herbal licorice. Chalky yeasty banana taste with, again, citric herbal notes. Typical, soft wheaty mouthfeel with a kind of chalky feel to it. Dry, herbal, lemony aftertaste. Nice, but not terribly special. (0.5l bottle at Cardinal.)

Dark colour and large head. Bitter taste at first but eases a little as beer settles. Definately better than Paulaner. You will not be disappointed.

Amber-mahogany with big, foamy white head / Banana and spice nose / Medium body, a touch watery, with fine and lively carbonation and light but decent finish / Restrained flavors of banana, orange, apple, nutmeg, and coriander / Fine but unremarkable.

Schneider Weisse Original is a very good German Hefeweizen. I really enjoyed the unique and full-bodied taste.

Goodgrief (2057) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Beer poured dark color for a hefe. Aroma of cloves. Flavor at pour was wheaty base, banana and cloves. More bitter than other top hefe’s. As it warmed a sweet bubblegum flavor also emerged and the bitterness subsided somewhat, but a sour tartness was present throughout. Very good, but I’m not sure I’d give up my Weihenstephaner or Paulaner for this....

Amber/hazy straw in appearance with fluffy white head. Nice and refreshing with lemon peel, clove, grain, bread, light fruit, and citrus. An above average hefe.

defintently what a Hefe should be. darker than normal. It has a tangy taste in addition to the malty, banana flavor. do try

conor23 (111) - Elgin, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Gorgeous color, fruity hoppy aroma. Flavor is distinct for a weiß, mellow and low key and much less citrusy than most. Very bready and rich tasting with just a slight bitter finish. Definitely excellent.

On tap on a riverboat from Kelheim to Weltenburg 21 Jun 07. Strong aroma of citrus and banana. A good-looking white head. Unclear. Rich fruity flavor with a long fruity aftertaste and a sweet bitter finish. One of the best wheat beers.

4.3
kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2008
My favourite wheat beer without a doubt, bubblegum and bananas on the nose with a spicy clove dryness on the palate. A lovely refreshing quenching beer.
