Schneider Weisse Original

B / 3.5
Schneider Weisse Original

With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermenting yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly spicy with a typical top-fermented smell. An arome of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes lightly sparkling with a light and fine bitterness.

Reviews of Schneider Weisse Original

Review by Aaron D. Campbell on October 2, 2010

B / 3.5

Appearance – Hazy and a little darker than a normal weissebier. Thick white head that leaves no lacing.

Smell – Loads of light wheat, malt, tart fruit, and a little hint of banana bread.

Taste – Classic sour wheat malt, not overly sharp. Hints of spice (clove?) , and a medicine-like alcohol.

Mouthfeel – Light bodied, light carbonation, tart

Drinkability – Not a bad beer. A pretty good example of a hefeweizen, but nothing amazing.
