    Pours clear dark amber with a thick and creamy ivory head. Aroma delivers crisp malty and wheat notes with tangy lemon and other citrus notes. Flavor presents zesty wheat and malt, lemon, yeasty, clove, subtle banana and resiny hops. Texture offers good body and lively fizz. A neisse weisse.

    A very good hefe. Pours deep copper-orange - hazy with a fluffy active white head. Banana, clove and (corriander?) - delightful flavor and huge sweet nose. Great with the jagerschnitzel!

    Dated the 184th day of 2013. Pours a cloudy light amber with a 2 finger off white head that takes its time. Nicely carbonated. Aroma is very floral with hints of clove and banana. Taste is fairly heavy with hints of fruits, light clove and fresh water. Fairly full bodied and crisp but ever so slightly watered down. I like it.

    Drank this at Italian restaurant in Switzerland - why not all Swiss one could ask. Good weizen, nice aroma and fesh taste. Nice refreshing citrus aroma and taste, good beer.

    Poured a very hazy orange/amber colour, with a large foamy head. Good lacing and has a great mouthfeel. Yeast is in the aroma along with wheats, malts, and fruits. Flavours are of the same variety, very yeasty, but hints of banana, orange, apple. A little bit of sourness on the palate, nothing too extreme, and not off-putting. Very good.

    After having their "Tap X Mein Nelson Sauvin" last night, I noticed I had not had this one before (and had lots of rating). Well, the LCBO had some waiting for me, so I grabbed one. Loaded with carbonation, the brew came out of the bottle before I could pour it. Hazy golden-amber colour with a big frothey off-white head, good retention and thick lacing. Spicy wheat nose with notes of banana bread, hints of vanilla and witbier yeast. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Again, crazy carbonated. The taste is nicely balanced between the wheat, spices, apples and mild sugars. Quite a nice brew that reminds me of a milder Unibroue Maudite (even though they are not the same style, many resemblance). Easier to drink for sessions.

    I picked this up from the Wine Gourmet in Roanoke,VA. Full disclosure, I am not a huge hefe fan. In face, I believe I liked the Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier better. That being said, this was still quite nice and I would have it again.

    Sampled this beer at the pub! Pours a very cloudy orange, brown gold color with a white creamy large head that maintains good retention and good lacing. The aroma is fruity and hints bubble gum, but is not strong. The taste is of bubble gum and bananas as well, but is quickly checked by clove and fruit flavors. In the middle a slight sour zest taste is dominant. At the end the yeast binds all the flavors to a nice finish. A very drinkable everyday Hefeweizen. Great job!

    A very light and lively hefe. Crisp and fizzy, just how it should be. Beautiful looking in the glass, darker than most. A bit sour on the nose along with traditional banana bread notes. Just very surprised how light it is on flavor.

    Did a Schneider tasting over the weekend, all were excellent. Colour - hazy medium gold with a snow white head. Aroma - wheat, banana, and cloves . Mouthfeel - medium bodied. Flavour - sweet malt, backed by clove and citrus notes. Overall - excellent, turned out to be a great tune up for the heavier Schneiders yet to come.
