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.

Schneider Weisse is relatively common in the U.S. as they have been exporting since the early 1990s. Because so many people were introduced to weissbier with one of the blonde versions they often mistakenly refer to Schneider as a "Dunkelweiss," when it is actually an "Original" weissbier. This style is rather common among the smaller, traditional weissbier breweries in Bavaria, all of which are based loosely on Schneiders version. It pours deep amber or light brown in color, with a bouquet full of expected banana and clove aromas. The initial sip is sweet and full, with a rounded and soft body, containing hints of earthy fruitiness. The finish is relatively clean. The head is creamy, but with larger bubbles than some versions and it does not hold as well as it does when fresh. I find that it takes a few sips of weissbier to truly get the palate adjusted. Once you get the idea, however, it leaves the tongue asking for more. Original is a very consistent brew and holds up relatively well as an import (as opposed to many lighter weissbiers, which can become sour and tangy if incorrectly stored) and would never be a bad choice in my book. Im happy to give it a very solid score and only a slight lack of complexity relative to some of its micro-cousins prevents this from earning top numbers over the board. Serving type: bottle

Mooi donkerblond bier met oranje gloed. Smaken van abrikozen, pruimen en ander steenfruit. Beetje banaan, koriander, hooi, tarwe. Schoolvoorbeeld van een witbier.

Theres probably some old German law that prohibits drinking Schneider Weisse in the winter, but Original was my preferred snow day beer. Pouring an unconventional amber color, this Hefeweizen has attractive lacing and a creamy head that lasts. Spicy, fruity, and yeasty nose. Taste profile includes banana, apple, citrus, clove, nutmeg, and coriander. Thick, full feel and just a hint of bright tartness at the finish.Definitely a lovely example of German Hefeweizen.

Darker than most Hefeweizen with an amber body and large white head. Sweet banana and spice aroma. Taste is sweet with a slight sourness from the wheat, along with banana, clove, and pepper. Moderate to high carbonation.

Grumpelmies (156) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle. Dark orange. Could easily be mistaken for a Dunkelweizen. Thick fluffy head. Aroma of bananas, wheat, clove and lemons. Taste is bananas, lemons and malt. Slightly sweet and sour. Creamy, light and sffig. A touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Not as heavy and filling as some other Hefeweizen. Balanced and delicious.

puren (833) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JAN 6, 2017
PREZENTACJA: solidnie zamglone, złoto-bursztynowe, obfita piana osiada do kożucha, słabo zdobi szkło;
AROMAT: delikatny - przejrzały banan, skrka ciasta, przyprawy piernikowe;
ODCZUCIE: ciało bardzo niskie, nisko nasycone, lekko wykleja podniebienie;
SMAK: goździk, dojrzały banan, skrka ciasta;
OGLNIE: spory zawd, piwo słabo się prezentuje, ma nikły, ulotny zapach, brakuje mu bąbelkw, a w smaku jest zbyt wodniste; najsłabsze z wypitych przeze mnie produktw SW.

Jabic (443) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 5, 2017
Ar: Fresh grain, medium pepper, clove, and banana; some slight wet dough and herbal hoppiness. Ap: Orange-amber and cloudy; huge white head with great retention, leaving a thick mound of foam in the glass. T: Light banana and toasty malt up front, mid palate is very mild clove, a touch of bubblegum, and tart lemon; finish is a light, clean bitterness with a herbal character, and lingering black pepper and dough. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation that gives the beer an impression of thickness, though the beer finishes crisp and dry. O: Solid and classic example of the style; the flavors are harmonious and well-integrated, with the typical banana, clove, lightly toasty malt, and black pepper flavors melding gracefully, none of them dominating.
