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 1990’s. 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 Schneider’s 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. I’m 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

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2018 Pivo u flaši. 'Krojačko' pivo je jedna vrlo dobra pšenica , možda malo manje mirišljava i puna ali će možda nekima baš zbog toga pasati. Fino pivo !

(0,5l Flasche) Tiefes Bernstein, reinweißer, dezenter Schaum. In der Nase ein karamellig-bananig-obstiger Duft. Süß im Antrunk, Banane, Aprikose und gelber Apfel am Gaumen. Abgang mit einer sehr dezenten Bittere, leider etwas kurz. Könnte eine Spur mehr Carbo vertragen.

A strong flavor of wheat malt, making this beer less refreshing than hoped for. Spicy, reminding of coriander seed, perhaps cloves as indicated by brewery.

Botella en 99Cervezas. Vierte en color castaño claro con un deje rojizo y cierta turbidez inicial, aunque desaparece casi completamente una vez que la cerveza pierde un poquito de frío, mostrando entonces un aspecto bastante impresionante. Buena formación de espuma de color blanco roto, aspecto cremoso y relativamente fugaz. Buena carbonatación, formando espuma con facilidad al agitar la copa. De gran intensidad en nariz, da notas abundantes de plátano y una sensación como de leche condensada, como si se tratara de un dulce de plátano. También hay un punto herbal muy suave y fresco. Un fondo cítrico ayuda a equilibrar el conjunto, muy agradable, aunque queda claro que el plátano es el rey. Complejidad media-baja. Si en nariz manda el plátano y la sensación dulce, en boca resulta muy bien equilibrada y sorprendente. El ácido, el salado y el dulce se reparten protagonismo por igual, siempre enmarcados en un fondo amargo muy suave pero muy presente y ligeramente astringente. El resultado es un conjunto de gran equilibrio y muy agradable. En el postgusto el plátano pierde importancia y la gana las notas cítricas. De cuerpo medio-alto y textura espumosa, frizante y muy vivaz. De carácter refrescante a pesar de su peso. Persistencia notable con un final más bien dulce, aunque siempre acompañado de una ligera astringencia. Al acumularse los tragos se aprecia más su peso en boca, restándole algo de bebestibilidad. Destaca principalmente en boca por su sabor original, complejo, intenso y equilibrado.

Bottle. Aroma is clove, banana, overriped fruit, phenols. The taste follows with clove, banana, a bit of tropical fruit, wheatty and phenolic. Good carbonation, medium body and slick mouthfeel. I like it.

Murky orange color with frothy off-white head. Aroma is bready and yeasty with sweet wheat malt and a bit of toast, banana esters on top. Taste is sweet at first, malty with some toasted biscuits, overripe banana, hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body, really smooth mouthfeel. One of the classic german weissbiers, really well made and tasty.

Pours hazy dirty amber, topped with medium white head, not too stable and lasting. Very gentle banana nose, not much else going on in there. Sweet start, banana and wheatiness, some spicess in the finish. Some bitterness, not too much. A quite gentle take on the weizen scene. Nicely enjoyable, though.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2017 Tap in München. Troebel geel, mooie kraag. Aroma en smaak van banaan en kruidnagel, hop. Helaas wat waterig.

Skvělý pšeničák, který příjemně potěšil skvělou říznou pšeničnou chutí, bohatým aroma, silnější perlivostí, masivnějším řízem a hustou, dlouho se držící pěnou.
